The long wait is finally over fellow agents. At times, it felt like we hit the end of the road in regards to new TD2 content. We took down the unexpected villain (avoiding spoilers) after completing a series of manhunts and were given The Summit to spend countless hours sending waves of various foes to the afterlife while collecting some decent loot.
However, Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment did a 180 and said more TD2 content will release throughout 2022. On Monday, May 9th Ubisoft announced the release of Season 9: Hidden Alliance along with the new 8-player (but not required) PVE mode called Countdown. All content is available for The Division® 2 Warlords of New York owners.
Below are some key points from the official press release:
- A New Enemy Emerges in Season 9. The latest season continues The Division narrative and brings agents back to the aftermath of their takedown of a former Division commander-turned-traitor. A new target, Captain Lewis, is out there and the Division must gather intel and face four high-ranking True Sons before they can face him. Season 9 is one of three seasons scheduled to run throughout the year.
- New Eight-Player Co-op Mode: Countdown is a new and intense co-op mode where up to eight Division agents are sent to a power plant and have 15 minutes to stabilize the plant and prevent a lockdown. The agents, deployed in two teams of four, will start at different locations on the map and must work together to overcome the challenge. The Division will be confronted by some familiar foes and will have to fend them off to secure the plant, then call for extraction before time runs out. New Feature – The Expertise feature gives players a
- A new way to improve their equipment with upgrades to base values such as damage, armor, and skill stats. Players can increase their Expertise by using any item in the game. Using more varied items means increasing their level. Expertise also allows players to increase the base stats of each individual item and reach a new power ceiling.
- New Weapons and Gear: The new update will also include a variety of new items, including the Heartbreaker gear set, new Exotics, new named items, and more! Additional rewards will also be offered for players with the Season 9 Pass.
