The Division 2 Articles
Title Update 10.1 has been outlined for The Division 2 and features a bunch of tweaks to skills, in addition loot tweaks, bug fixes, and more.
In a new forum post, Ubisoft Massive outlined massive patch notes for its Division 2 PTS title update 6, testing all manners of Skills, Talents, and Controls.
With its latest update, The Division 2 will allow players to better target specific pieces of loot to build their characters and take on new content. Following the update, players World Tier 5 and higher will be able to see which type of loot will be rewarded for completing certain activities. With new updates to the mini-map, players will be able to hone in on exactly where and what to play to seek their intended drop.
In a tweet thread by Tim Spencer, Level Director at TT Games, he espoused his love for The Division series of games while also proposing a single-player spinoff of sorts.
Starting July 23rd, The Division 2 agents will be heading out of Washington D.C. for the first time when Outskirts Expeditions begin. In addition to expeditions, the July 23rd update will see two main missions open up: Camp White Oak and Manning National Zoo. During each, players will have a number of objectives to fulfill including chasing down big bosses.
After maintenance is complete today, The Division 2 players will have the opportunity to check out the new Gunner Specialization. The Gunner uses a minigun for sustained damage and damage resilience. Gunners will be available to Year 1 Season Pass holders right away. Others can unlock the specialization by completing "Special Field Research" that consists of five stages of in-game challenges. Once complete, the Gunner is unlocked.
Ubisoft announced earlier this week that The Division 2 is free to play from today through June 17th. PC players can access the free weekend through U-Play. PS4 players can grab access from the PlayStation Network and Xbox One users can download from the Xbox Store, though Xbox Live Gold is required for online play.
Ubisoft has a new post on The Division 2 site to introduce the next specialization coming to the game. The Gunner travels the world with a Minigun and an "emphasis on sustained damage output and damage resilience". Gunners receive bonus armor based on the amount of Specialization ammunition they have on them which allows them to tank for a short period of time. The Signature Skill ignores cover and confuses targets. When they stumble out of cover, the Riot Foam grenade can be used.
