Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is About to Get a Ton of New Content Later this Month
Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Episode 2 - Pentagon: The Last Castle will be available for Year 1 pass holders on October 15.
Ubisoft’s post-launch support for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has been laid out into three episodes. Episode 1 came out back in July, and next week Episode 2 – Pentagon: The Last Castle will arrive. Not only does Episode 2 feature a lot of new content for players to sink their teeth into, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2’s title update 6 that will come out alongside it will also bring a lot of changes.
The biggest draws of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Episode 2 – Pentagon: The Last Castle are the two new main missions, the Technician specialization, and two more classified assignments for Year 1 Pass owners. The two main missions task players with recovering a bioreactor from the Pentagon that can be used to replicate antiviral samples. That being said, Black Tusk has made itself at home in the Pentagon, so players will have to face off with that organization while recovering the bioreactor.
As for the new specialization, the Technician has a multi-missile launcher, the P-017 Launcher, as a signature weapon as well as a Maxim 9 sidearm. They also have access to EMP grenades and their skill variant is the Artificer Hive. If you’ve been getting bored with your character’s current specialization in recent weeks, the Technician semes like an explosive, fun addition. The two classified assignments for Year 1 pass holders will have players sieging a weapons cache at a Boathouse on the Potomac River and saving a helicopter pilot who crashed into the Mexican embassy.
A new Team Elimination PvP mode is also on its way and has two teams of four face fighting to completely wipe out the other team in a best of seven competition. A new mode called The Wharf has been added as well and it is compatible with all PvP modes. It is clear that this is quite a heavy update, and I haven’t even mentioned all of the bug fixes that players can expect.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Episode 2 – Pentagon: The Last Castle will be available to all players on October 22, though Year 1 Pass holders will gain access early on October 15. The game itself is currently available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and it can be picked up on Amazon. All of this post-launch content is technically free, though there are clear benefits for those that have the Year 1 Pass.
