Information kring kommande uppdatering till The Division 2


Det har släppts information kring fas 2 av årets uppdateringar, som är totalt 4 faser till The Divison 2. Titulerad som ”The Division 2 Title Update 18 PTS Phase 2 patch notes” och här kommer detaljerna.


Many of you dove straight into Descent to explore the new 1-to-4 player PvE mode and were quick to share your thoughts. We wanted to acknowledge some of the key changes:


    • Based on the feedback we received during the PTS Phase 1, post-Nemesis difficulty was dramatically increased up to 39% compared to the previous version
    • Better balance between Health, Damage and Armor
    • Increased difference between Veteran, Elite and Boss-level enemies
    • Adjusted the Rational Level Design system used for balancing and difficulty scaling


  • Changed the placement and affected areas for some of the hazards, making them more intrusive/visible during gameplay
  • Removed the option to bypass Hazards from the shop
  • Increased the frequency of occurrence


Starting with the PTS Phase 2 the new reward system will be in place.

  • XP earned for completing Descent levels will be split into 3 categories:
    • XP awarded to players that have not yet reached level 40
    • XP awarded to players that have reached level 40 and moved on to the SHD level progression path
    • Seasonal XP to help level 40 players progress though the Seasonal Rewards track

Rewards are based on the maximum Descent loops reached and comprise of sealed caches that will be sent to the player’s inventory upon completing the Descent run and returning to their main character. Please note that the LEVEL mentions refer to the main game character outside Descent:
