The Division is now very close to release, and in the past few hours players have managed to discover more on the highly anticipated shooter by Ubisoft Massive by data mining the PC version. More details have also emerged online a few hours ago, details that might reveal something interesting on what players are able to do once they have completed the game.
Reddit user ChristianRiensen has collected details on Gear Sets, Item trading, Daily and Weekly Missions, Supply Drops and more. These details are translations of the game's files, so there's the chance that some of these features might have been implemented in a different way in the final game. The list obviously includes spoilers, so avoid reading it if you want the game to be a complete surprise for you when it launches in a few hours.
