On October 15, 2019, Massive Entertainment will launch The Division 2’s Title Update 6, which is a massive content drop that includes the Episode 2 DLC, a new Specialization, improvements to the loot system, improvements to the Dark Zone, and more.
Title Update 6 will include Episode 2, which adds two new Main Missions and will be available next week for Year 1 season pass owners first. Non-season pass owners will have to wait until October 22 to progress in The Division 2’s story.
The content patch will also feature a new Specialization called The Technician, the game’s second post-launch Specialization which is equipped with a specialized missile launcher that has the ability to lock-on multiple targets before firing. The Technician class is also equipped with EMP grenades, a new variant for the Hive skill, and other abilities to make it play as a support class compared to the rest.
Players who bought the Year 1 pass will also get two new Classified Assignments and the Technician Specialization instantly locked. Those that did not opt for the pass will need to go through the Special Field Research system to unlock the new class.
