The Division 2 preps for World Tier 5 and reveal Raid details

The Division 2 Tidal Basin release date was officially announced by Ubisoft ahead of the lengthy server downtime.

The next huge update for Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is incoming in just a few hours. And today they're breaking it all down for us, beginning with what's coming our way tomorrow in the form of the first Division 2 DLC, Tidal Basin.

Publisher Ubisoft has described various key elements of Tidal Basin: "Players face a new challenge in encountering Tidal Basin, a new stronghold held by the Black Tusk Faction". The "Tidal Basin" update adds more endgame stuff to chase for those looking to continue their romp through the ruins of D.C., and get ready for the eight player raid that drops late this month with the next update. Advances to World Tier 5 will unlock higher, more rewarding gear, despite activities being more challenging. This update brings the most heavily defended and unsafe stronghold Tidal Basin, along with new exotic weapons, three new gear sets - Ongoing Directive, True Patriot and Hard Wired, events, new PvP map, weekly invaded missions, and more.

Gameplay also has a new Heroic Difficulty and Weekly Invasions are going to be added into the game as you go head to head with the Black Tusk. It will also unlock new weekly invasions that will be more hard and gives better loot. And there's new gear sets too in True Patriot, Hardwired and Ongoing Directive.

'Game Of Thrones' "Aftermath" Teaser: Must-See Breakdown & Analysis
As if the wait for the final season of Game of Thronescouldn't get any harder, HBO has dropped three new teasers in 24 hours. We'll be getting six 90-minute installments instead of the eight hour-long episodes of last season, for those keeping track.


And even though you've officially wiped out its base, Black Tusk starts mobilising on the map again, taking back a Stronghold and "invading" different main missions, with new rewards.

For those of you in the United Kingdom that means the game should go offline at 8.30 GMT. Fans who are waiting to take on Tidan Basin Stronghold won't have to wait much longer, however. Completing this new side mission unlocks the Tidal Basin Stronghold.

With World Tier 5 comes the possibility of obtaining weapons and items with gear score ratings between 450-500. Alongside these great things, there's a new series of events called Weekly Invasions.

Lastly, Episode 3 will release in Winter 2019 and is said to be the closing of the first chapter of The Division 2 story. As soon as we hear more, we'll be sure to let you know.
