Last Stand DLC will be the last frontier of The Division. The DLC would introduce 8v8 PvP game mode and feature a new Incursion, Lost Signal.

Further, though Ubisoft forums have detailed what the patch 1.6 might include, it has said that the patch notes listed are not final.

However, the tentative notes hint at what players can expect; it includes exploration to three new areas to the North of the Dark Zone, new ways of customising the agent, increase in the time to revive a teammate who went down from three to five seconds and several bug fixes.

Nevertheless, Ubisoft has shared what players can expect in the new expansion, Last Stand:
