April is shaping up to be a big month for fans of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. If you’ve been grinding it out since the game released last month, then you’ve no doubt been waiting for additional means of progression. You don’t have to wait too long because the Battle for D.C. starts heating up. Check out the new content such as a stronghold, the first raid (Operation: Dark Hours), and the fourth specialization coming soon:
Strongholds And Raids Oh My!
The Tidal Basin stronghold is set to release on April 5. As we’ve previously mentioned, this will also coincide with the addition of World Tier 5. WT5 will immensely boost your gear score, allowing you to farm weapons and armor sets to make ready for future content. This update will also add three new gear sets and a couple of exotic weapons, the Pestilence LMG and the Nemesis sniper rifle. There will also be a new PvP map set in Fort McNair as well as an Apparel Event for the r/FashionAgents aficionados out there.
You’ve got 20 days to grind and min-max your build as there’d be more tweaks to skills and item perks along the way. Likewise, on April 25, we’ll finally experience The Division 2’s first raid, Operation: Dark Hours. This will be your toughest challenge yet, and you won’t have to go out alone. You can bring your friends with you because the raid will allow for eight-player fireteams/squads to enter the fray.
Last but not least, we’ll also see the inclusion of a fourth specialization which is equipped with a devastating minigun. For this one, the official requirements and release dates have yet to be revealed. However, if you already own the Year One Pass for The Division 2, you can gain access to this specialization immediately once it’s live.
It looks like we’ll be spending April exploring the virtual world of D.C as agents in The Division 2. We’ll see you in World Tier 5 soon.
