Gifting Gamers 411: Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2

Today, Tom Clancy's The Division® 2 announced that Title Update 12 (TU 12) is now available. TU 12 includes Season 4, new weapons and gear, the optimization station, updates to The Summit and quality of life improvements. Season 4 and updates to The Summit are available for all Division 2 Warlords of New York expansion owners while the game improvements in Title Update 12 will be available for all Division 2 players.

Season 4 (Warlords of New York Players): The Division has learned that Faye Lau, Division commander-turned rogue, is working together with four ex-Division operatives recruited by Black Tusk, now under her command. However, her motivation to turn on The Division remains a mystery. With Lau leading the rogue cell, the Division suspects a sinister plan that needs to be uncovered. Agents must now engage in the most important manhunt yet, where they must first target the four rogues in order to eliminate the cell, and ultimately get to Lau herself! In the second half of Season 4, players will also see improved frame rates for The Division 2 on next gen consoles. Leagues and Global Events also continue with new weekly events.

Improvements to The Summit (Warlords of New York Players): Summit improvements include the following:

  • Challenges, a new progression loop in The Summit, will come in two categories – Tactical and Ascent. Completing challenges will earn players a variety of rewards, as well as milestone rewards depending on the overall number of challenges completed. Upon reaching the 100th floor, all completed challenges will reset.
  • New Commendations
  • Guaranteed targeted loot rewards when unlocking a new elevator checkpoint (based on the player's personal targeted loot selection).
  • A new objective category and increased variation for the existing objectives to improve variety.
