Ubisoft offers details on Tidal Basin
, the first installment in Invasion: Battle
, a three-part free content release for Tom Clancy's The Division 2
This adds a bunch of new content to Massive Entertainment's open-world action
sequel, including the first ever 8-player raid for the series. Here's
with a look
along with word on this release as well as a roadmap for all that's to follow:
As part of the endgame and post-launch first philosophy of Tom Clancy’s The
Division 2,”Invasion: Battle for D.C.” brings new challenges and content:
- Players face a new challenge in encountering Tidal
Basin, a new stronghold held by the Black Tusk Faction. Tidal Basin is now
home to some of the most powerful enemies in the game, and they’re not going
- After completing the Tidal Basin Stronghold,
players will be able to advance to World Tier 5 and unlock the possibility
to obtain gear scores 450-500.
- “Invasion: Battle for D.C.” introduces a new
Heroic difficulty setting making for some of the most challenging gameplay
- Upon reaching World Tier 5, weekly invasions will
be introduced with the Black Tusk taking control over selected main missions
and strongholds in the city. These activities are harder to complete but
more rewarding in loot and gear.
- Players can now enjoy two new exotic weapons
Pestilence and Nemesis as well as three new gear sets: True Patriot,
Hardwired and Ongoing Directive.
- As part of the update, all players will also have
access a new PVP map called Fort McNair
- The Invasion Apparel Event, live April 5-25, will
allow agents to collect outfits inspired by the enemy factions, as well as
new masks and weapon skins. During this period, Event Keys can be earned by
direct purchase using premium credits, or from playing the game – through
field experience after reaching level 30 and through Dark Zone experience.
After the event ends on April 25, players can still use their leftover keys
to open caches as well as purchase additional ones to complete apparel sets
until May 2, but will no longer earn keys through the game.
- Operation Dark Hours is the toughest of all
challenges: an 8- player raid that will test the teamwork of the most
experienced agents, coming April 25th.
- Coming in a later update, Agents will have the
chance to unlock a brand new Specialization.
While “Invasion: Battle for D.C.” is the first batch of free content brought
to players as part of the Year 1 post launch updates, Agents can look forward to
the following content later this year:
- Episode 1, D.C. Outskirts: Expeditions, releasing
in Summer 2019, will take players to the surrounding areas of Washington to
fight for the liberation of the city in two additional main missions, a new
game mode to investigate the fate of a lost convoy, encountering unexpected
threats along the way;
- Episode 2, Pentagon: The Last Castle, releasing in
Fall 2019, will have additional main missions, with players storming the
Pentagon to unveil the secrets that hide beneath one of America’s most
- Episode 3, releasing in Winter 2019 will close the
first chapter of The Division 2 story and pave the way for more content to
