Ubisoft announces title update 6.1 is now available for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, bringing new content to the tactical shooter, including some seasonal content. This also includes the beta version of a new hardcore mode. Here’s word:
Today Ubisoft announced that Title Update 6.1 (TU 6.1) for Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2 is now available for all players. TU 6.1 includes a themed in-game event, Situation: Snowball. Take down elusive enemies wearing Santa Hats and they will drop a new, exclusive weapon (called “The Sleigher”) that shoots snowballs.
As part of the in-game holiday event, all players logging in the game between now and January 7 will get their own Santa Hat to celebrate the holiday season.
The Silent Night Apparel Event is also included in TU 6.1, bringing with it a dark winter theme. The Silent Night apparel cache features 35 new apparel items to collect. All players who log into The Division 2 during the event receives one free cache key, with Year One Pass holders earning an additional three keys as a bonus, available until the event ends.
Starting with the Silent Night apparel event, players now have the option to purchase Apparel Event caches with Premium Credits and directly send them as gifts to friends and clan members.
In addition, a beta version of the new Hardcore Mode is part of TU 6.1. In this new mode, death is permanent, making the entire The Division 2 campaign the ultimate challenge for Agents. Since there is no chance to respawn, Division Agents must be tactical and careful to see how far they can get. Play in co-op for a better chance to reach endgame and overcome Washington D.C. threats and enemies.
