Ubisoft has taken to their blog to detail fans in their upcoming major update for their recently released looter shooter title, The Division 2.
Players will be introduced to a slew of new things in the upcoming Tidal Basin update including some new guns, Invasion: Battle for DC, and the recently announced weekly invasions. These weekly invasions will serve as a stiff challenge for players as the Black Tusks will take control of certain main missions and strongholds that the Division agents must clear out.
We also know now that the long-awaited arrival of the 8-player raid is set to release towards the end of the month on April 25th. This will be the first raid for The Division, so it will be interesting to see how Ubisoft handles it.
In addition, Ubisoft noted that two new exotic weapons, Pestilence and Nemesis, are on the way along with three new gear sets: True Patriot, Hardwired, and Ongoing Directive.
Check out the new trailer down below:
The update will up the ante by introducing the Tidal Basin stronghold, held by the technologically advanced and ruthless Black Tusk faction. It’s a brand new challenge for Agents, but the rewards are well worth the risk, as players who conquer the stronghold will be able to advance to World Tier 5 and work towards the new gear score cap of 500.
Hitting the new gear score cap will be crucial for success in Operation Dark Hours, The Division’s first-ever eight-player raid. The ultimate challenge for seasoned Agents, Operation Dark Hours will test your skills and teamwork abilities when it hits on April 25.
The Division 2 is now available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Are you hyped for the upcoming 8 player raid? Let us know in the comments below!
