The Operation Dark Hours update for Tom Clancy’s Division 2 will be out for all platforms on May 16. Originally it was planned to release Dark Hours on April 25, but Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment made a decision to polish update a bit more, as Ubisoft reported in its official dev blog.
“In order to fine-tune the balance of our game and to ensure the best possible player experience for everyone, we have decided to move the release of Title Update 3 – including Operation Dark Hours, our 8-player Raid – from April 25 to May 2019. The final release date of Title Update 3 will be based on results from further testing and balancing of the game. Operation Dark Hours will be your biggest challenge to date, and we want to make sure that we’ve properly tested the large amount of balance changes that are coming to both PvE and PvP and listen to your feedback about the changes before introducing the raid.”
What to Expect
Now, when launch is around the corner, developers pleased us with new trailer that shows what players actually can expect, starting with world-first rewards to the rivals and new locations to explore. The setting of Operation Dark Hours is located in Washington Airport and, as trailer displays the airport territory is fully involved. Players’ goal is to capture the airport in intention to stop the Black Tusks faction from using it to fly in soldiers and supplies.
It also has been announced that the very first team going through the raid will be “immortalized in-game in the Base of Operations,” with its members’ photos on display in The Division 2’s White House, which every player will be able to see.
