The Division 2 Getting a Huge Update Next Week


Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 continues to be a big draw for its community, and Ubisoft is just about ready to reward them for their loyalty.

The company announced on its blog page today that the game’s most significant update to date will launch on Oct. 15. It not only includes an all-new episode for players to tackle but also several updates and improvements.

The Last Castle is the next episode for the game, launching for Year 1 Pass holders on October 5. In it, the agents take on the Black Tusk terrorists, who have managed to take over the Pentagon. They’ll need to take on a slew of new dangers while working together to bring them down.

Those who have a season pass for the game can take on several new Classified Assignments. These pit them against the Outcasts as they attempt to retake the nation’s Capitol.

The update will also bring the following improvements:

  • Targeted Loot
  • Named Items overhauled
  • Crafting Changes
  • Recalibration Changes
  • Filled Brands
  • Inventory Management 2.0
  • Increased stash space
  • Rebalance of talents and weapons
  • Dark Zone Server Transfers
  • Updated Thieves’ Den Vendor
  • Dark Zone Supply Drops Changes
  • Occupied Dark Zone Ambushes
  • Normalization in Dark Zone changes
  • Conflict: Loadout Selection during map voting
  • Bonus armor visualization increased
  • Conflict: End of Match Rewards changes
  • Stored tutorials
  • UI improvements

For those that don’t have a Year 1 Pass, don’t worry. You’ll get access to the second episode starting on Oct. 22. Alas, you won’t be able to engage in the Classified Assignments. Those are exclusive for Pass holders.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
