June 18th, 2019 — Ubisoft® today announced the release of Title Update 4 in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, including the highly-anticipated Specialization “Gunner”. Agents can now utilize more playstyles with new gear, skills and a new weapon to take back Washington D.C. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is available on the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will also launch on the new generation gaming platform, Stadia. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will also be available on Uplay+, Ubisoft’s subscription service. More details on Uplay+ can be found on Uplay.com**
The new “Gunner” Specialization unlocks a mighty and powerful minigun with rapid fire action, creating massive damage in short periods of time on the enemy while sustaining incoming damage thanks to its bonus armor when the weapon is drawn.
With the Banshee Signature Skill that comes with the new Specialization, players can cause confusion to targets, even when covered. In addition, the Gunner can also use the Riot Foam Grenade, which spreads foam on to the enemy upon impact, stopping them in their tracks.
Starting today, players can jump into the boots of “Gunner” and unleash havoc on their enemies. This new specialization provides another opportunity for players to grow their character and fine tune their skills. To unlock the Gunner Specialization, players must take on Special Field Research, which consists of five stages of in-game challenges. Each challenge has its own set of objectives and rewards. Only upon completion of Special Field Research will players gain access to the Specialization and its signature minigun.
Year 1 Pass holders will instantly unlock the Gunner Specialization. These players can still take on the Special Field Research and will be able to unlock additional exclusive cosmetic rewards, including Fisticuffs and Front Flex emotes, Charcoal and Detritus gear dyes, Rosethorn and Pineapple weapon skins, Gunner mask and the Gunner specialization uniform.
Led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with seven other studios around the world*, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is the next evolution in the open-world online shooter RPG genre that the first game helped establish. Set seven months after a deadly virus was released in New York City, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 brings players into a fractured and collapsing Washington D.C. The world is on the brink, its people living through the biggest crisis ever faced in human history. As veteran Division agents, players are the last hope against the complete fall of society as enemy factions vie for control of the city. If Washington D.C. is lost, the entire nation falls. Building upon more than two years of listening to and learnings from The Division community, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 offers a substantial campaign that organically flows into a robust endgame, to create a cohesive and meaningful experience for all types of players, helping players emphasize their freedom to make strategic choices and hone their own approach.
