The Division 2 Operations Dark Hours raid is now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is the first The Division 2 raid but it won’t be the last. Ubisoft hasn’t discussed future raids but it seems the latest raid update gave away the company’s long-term plans. It looks like The Division 2 will get a total of 5 raids during its lifecycle including Operations Dark Hours.
The first raid, Operations Dark Hours, is only the beginning. There are 4 “Missing Intel” tabs when you access the raid menu from the helipad. We can also see the “Select Raid” button, another indication of multiple raids.
The Division 2’s first raid was a grueling experience. It took five hours for the world’s first team, led by streamer Marcostyle, to complete the raid. The team struggled through several bosses before knocking the final boss at 5.10 PM.
His entire team died many times during the raid and in the final attempt, only seven out of eight players were active. Final boss took three hours to complete.
The second raid will probably drop close to the end of the year but other future content will be discussed at E3 2019. The Division will be a major part of Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference.
As part of The Division 2 year-1 content, Ubisoft will release three free downloadable episodes. These episodes are going to introduce new narrative driven content, missions, and specializations.
Between the releases of new episodes, you can expect more gear sets, projects, raids, cosmetics, conflict mode updates, challenges, and weapons.
Episode 1 – D.C Outskirts: Expeditions will release sometime this summer. The player will fight to liberate new locations from elite Outcasts and Black Tusk enemies. There 2 new missions and a new game mode called “Lost Convoy.”
Episode 2 – Pentagon: The Last Castle is releasing this Fall with additional missions. Last but not least, Episode 3 is also scheduled for Winter 2019 and it will pave way for future content.
Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference is scheduled for Monday, June 10 – 13:00 PDT / 16:00 EDT / 21:00 BST.
