We knew that 8 player raids were coming soon to Division 2. And today, Ubisoft announced the global release date for the first raid! Operation Dark Hours is the title of the first 8 player raid in Division history. It will be available May 16th at 6 pm CEST /9 am PT on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows PC.
This raid is available for those who have reached World Tier 5 and defeated Tidal Basin. The Raid will bring Agents to Washington National Airport, which is controlled by the Black Tusks who are using it to fly in soldiers and supplies. Capturing the airport will strike a significant blow to their operations.
Ubisoft said in a press release that Operation Dark Hours will bring the most challenging bosses yet. Those who survive will be rewarded with exclusive loot, such as new gear sets, an exotic weapon as well as other unique rewards. The first team to complete the Raid after it goes live will be forever immortalized in-game by having their team photo and names displayed in Division 2’s White House for all players to see. All other players that complete “Operation Dark Hours” between May 16 and May 23 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 to the World First by checking out “Operation Dark Hours: Race to World First” Twitch Rivals Program at https://www.twitch.tv/twitchrivals beginning at 9 am PT/6pm CEST.
