You’ve probably read (and hopefully even played) our review about Ubisoft’s excellent The Division 2. TLDR, it’s an excellent sequel to the first one, with tons of stuff to do, even after you finish the main game.

Well…you’re going to have even MORE stuff to work on now as Ubisoft’s just released their latest content update, which brings a whole boatload of new content and tweaks to the game.

Chief among them is the Tidal Basin, an endgame Stronghold which has agents taking on Black Tusk, the enemy faction now in control of Washington D.C.

Here’s Ubisoft’s full list of new stuff in the patch (plus a word or two about what’s coming soon):

As part of the endgame and post-launch first philosophy of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, ”Invasion: Battle for D.C.” brings new challenges and content:

Players face a new challenge in encountering Tidal Basin, a new stronghold held by the Black Tusk Faction. Tidal Basin is now home to some of the most powerful enemies in the game, and they’re not going down easy.

After completing the Tidal Basin Stronghold, players will be able to advance to World Tier 5 and unlock the possibility to obtain gear scores 450-500.

“Invasion: Battle for D.C.” introduces a new Heroic difficulty setting making for some of the most challenging gameplay yet.

Upon reaching World Tier 5, weekly invasions will be introduced with the Black Tusk taking control over selected main missions and strongholds in the city. These activities are harder to complete but more rewarding in loot and gear.

Players can now enjoy two new exotic weapons Pestilence and Nemesis as well as three new gear sets: True Patriot, Hardwired and Ongoing Directive.

As part of the update, all players will also have access a new PVP map called Fort McNair

The Invasion Apparel Event, which will allow agents to collect outfits inspired by the enemy factions, as well as new masks and weapon skins.

Operation Dark Hours is the toughest of all challenges: an 8- player raid that will test the teamwork of the most experienced agents, coming April 25th.

Coming in a later update, Agents will have the chance to unlock a brand new Specialization .

Ubisoft Press Release.

We can’t wait to see how The Division 2 handles the raid in Operation Dark Hours and the upcoming Specialization. Word is, it’ll give players a minigun as a special weapon, which you can take a look at below.

Sure looks like a Minigun, doesn’t it?

The Division 2 is now available on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
