The Division 2 is continuing to roll out updates with Chapter 2 on the horizon. Pentagon: The Last Castle is set to arrive for Year 1 pass holders on October 15th, with an October 22nd date for everyone else. While it boasts quite a few new things for players to enjoy, unfortunately, a new raid won’t be one of them.
“The additional time allows the development team to focus on the overall quality of The Division 2, while developing a raid that will better meet the standards of its players,” said Ubisoft in a recent statement to PC Gamer. While a delay is unfortunate if it means a more polished raid experience then ultimately it’s a good thing.
Though the raid will be postponed, Chapter 2 is still on the way for its original timeslot and will include new main missions, a new PvP mode for players to battle it out in, a new specialization, and tons more. It will also take players to the Pentagon itself where they’ll find a horde of Black Tusk ready to take control. What are they aiming to take control of? A bioreactor that offers a cure for green poison, which is the strain of smallpox that thrust the events of this game into utter chaos.
The aspect I’m most looking forward to is the new PvP mode called Team Elimination. “The new Team Elimination PvP mode pits two teams of four into a best-of-seven round battle in D.C. Rounds will end once an entire team has been eliminated or time has expired.”
The new Wharf PvP map is also included in this update, which will take players to a spoopy abandoned fish harbor.
For those that have a Year 1 pass, players will also get two new classified assignments that will put players against The Outcasts both at the Mexican Embassy and the Potomac River.
As for the game itself, you can check out The Division 2 now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
