The Division 2 Next Patch Release Window, Overview and Loot Changes Detailed

Share this:

In the latest The Division 2 State of the Game devstream, Ubisoft Massive talked about The Division 2 next patch release window, or what the studio calls Title Update 10.1. This is the patch that’s dropping before the big Title Update 11 hits, and while the patch notes aren’t set just yet, the studio did give an overview of some of the stuff being worked on, and when Agents should expect it.

Title Update 10.1

No specific date, but scheduled for the second half of July

Content:

  • Additional Balancing and Bugfixing
  • Mantis Bug is fixed in 10.1
  • Title Update 10.1 will also add the White House portraits for Iron Horse World First winners on each platform.
  • In TU10.1, the developers will increase the minimum item power for higher difficulties, with a slight bump for Challenging and bigger bumps for Heroic and Legendary.
  • more information next week

Title Update 11

Title Update 11 is currently in the works. Stay tuned for more details on what TU11 will bring to The Division 2.


Changes to loot after TU10

  • In TU10, the developers changed the way they decide on item power, between a minimum for each difficulty and a full god roll, which resulted in most items being more centered than skewed toward the minimum.
  • But they also wanted to increase the minimum-values for the different difficulties but that was not possible because of technical limitations
  • In TU10.1, the developers will increase the minimum item power for higher difficulties, with a slight bump for Challenging and bigger bumps for Heroic and Legendary.

Rainbow Rolls

  • This is more a loot generation than roll allocation topic
  • Nothing was changed with TU10 that there are more / fewer rainbow rolls, that is not really something they control.
  • They are looking into the systems so that they have more control over the drops and they are discussing what degree they want to impact the rolls.
  • For example when the core attribute is a red stat, that at least one other is also a red stat – that would help the player that is looking for a complete red build.
  • But there are also many other hybrid builds out there.
  • So they need to find a solution that benefits all players and all builds
  • But that will take some time and is scheduled for TU11.

Given it’s out relatively soon, we should be getting the Title Update 10.1 patch notes by next week or so.

In other The Division 2 news, the second Raid called Operation Iron Horse went live earlier this week, and you can read up on it here.
