Ubisoft has announced that Title Update 6.1 (TU 6.1) for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be available for all players starting December 10th. The update brings a themed in-game event, Situation: Snowball. Some of Washington D.C.’s most elusive enemies have taken to wearing a bright red Santa Hat, and are taunting you about it! Taking these enemies down will drop a new, exclusive weapon that shoots… snowballs.
As part of this in-game holiday event, all players logging-in to the game between December 10th and January 7th will get their own Santa Hat to celebrate the holiday season.
Also included in TU 6.1 is The Silent Night apparel event, 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 will receive one free key, with Year One Pass holders earning an additional three keys as a bonus.
Starting with the Silent Night apparel event players will now also 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 will be part of Title Update 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.
