Ubisoft has announced that “Operation Dark Hours”, the first eight-player raid in Tom Clancy’s The Division franchise history, will go live for all The Division 2 players globally on May 16th 5pm BST. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is available on the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
With “Operation Dark Hours”, Ubisoft introduces the toughest of all challenges to date. “Operation Dark Hours” will test the teamwork and ability of the most experienced agents who have reached World Tier 5 and defeated Tidal Basin. Operation Dark Hours will bring Agents to Washington National Airport, controlled by the Black Tusks who are using it to fly in even more soldiers and supplies. Capturing the airport will strike a significant blow to their operations. Players will discover that the technology available to the Black Tusk is even more advanced than what they have had to face so far.
Players will take on some of the games’ most challenging bosses yet. In a team of 8 players, agents will have to work closely as a team to execute their strategy in order to overcome these tenacious opponents. The Raid will reward players with exclusive loot, such as new gear sets, an exotic weapon, and other unique rewards.
The first team to complete “Operation Dark Hours” after it goes live will be forever immortalized in-game by having their team photo and names displayed in The Division 2’s White House for all players to see. All other players that complete “Operation Dark Hours” between May 16th and May 23rd will receive a commemorative Arm Patch, while players who complete the raid after those dates will be rewarded with a clan banner icon and a trophy in their clan space.
Fans can follow the race by checking out “Operation Dark Hours: Race to a World First” Twitch Rivals Program beginning at 5pm BST.
