Tom Clancy's The Division


 

Unlike all other activities in The Division 2, the upcoming eight-player Operation Dark Hours raid will not support matchmaking.

A member of the game’s marketing team, Alexandre Guenounou, confirmed to a fan on Twitter that players will have to create pre-made teams before tackling the raid. As you can imagine, this has not gone down well with players. Guenounou later added that he will talk to the development team to get a full explanation for the decision.

The Operation Dark Hours raid opens tomorrow, May 16th, and sees eight players heading to Washington National Airport to reclaim control of it back from the Black Tusks, who are using it to bring in more soldiers and supplies.

During the raid, players will be able to earn new gear sets, a new exotic weapon, and more. In addition, the first team to complete the raid will be immortalized in the White House with their team’s picture and player names. Finally, all players who complete the raid before May 23rd will get an exclusive arm patch.

In other news, Ubisoft released a new update for the game yesterday that introduced a new Apparel event, the first Classified Assignments, an increase in the component cap, a post-mission summary, and more.

The Division 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
