Good news for The Division 2 players who are looking for more reasons to return to the game. A major update is on the way! The Division 2 Episode 2 is about to begin this month. If people have the Year 1 pass or UPlay+, they can start playing through Pentagon: The Last Castle on October 15, 2019. Everyone else could get into it on October 22, 2019.
The Division 2 Episode 2 is a huge update. To start, there are two main missions and a Technician Specialization. The missions are Pentagon and DARPA Research Labs. The first has people going into a Pentagon underground research facility to try and head off the Black Tusk. The second sends people into, well, DARPA Research Labs. People with the Year 1 Pass or UPlay+ have immediate access to the Technician, which has a P-017 Launcher signature weapon, a Maxim 9 sidearm, an Artificer Hive Skill Variant, and an EMP Grenade mod. People without the pass need to complete objectives to earn that Specialization.
Year 1 Pass and UPlay+ holders also have access to some exclusive activities. Some Classified Assignments are available. One is the Embassy, which is set at the Mexican Embassy and involves finding a helicopter that crashed after being shot down by Outcasts. Marina is set at a Potomac River boathouse that Outcasts have taken over. You have to invade and take their weapons.
In addition, a number of updates are arriving for everyone on October 15, 2019. The Wharf will appear as a new PvP map. Team Elimination Conflict PvP mode will bring a 4v4 experience for best of seven battles. Also, the following updates will appear.
