And what that means is that come June 16, "Title Update 10" will be sneaking its way into your The Division 2 storage area, updating the game across a number of fronts both in order to address a number of issues and requirements, while also prepping the game for Season 2 of Warlords of New York, which releases June 23 bringing with it new endgame content and hotly anticipated Second Raid.

Here's what you can expect over the next week:
Major Improvements and Fixes

In advance of Season 2, core changes and improved balancing will be introduced. These changes were tested on the game’s Public Test Server, which gathered feedback from players, allowing the dev team to finetune gameplay and deliver on community requested improvements in key areas including:
    Player Power
  • Increased damage for nearly all weapons, including exotics
  • Gear set improvements
  • Brand set improvements
    Loot Generosity
  • Increased overall loot quality
  • Improved loot quality scaling with difficulty
  • Improved quality of crafted items
  • Improved vendor stocks
    Fixes and balancing
  • Major balancing pass
  • Large amount of bug fixes
As you'd expect, Title Update 10 is a free update and should engage automatically, however, Season 2 of Warlords of New York is part of the expansion pay model. Here's what you'll be getting, as a refresher:
On June 23 the second season of progressive endgame content will be available. Seasons are part of the Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Warlords of New York expansion and are a series of 3-month long narrative-driven mini campaigns. In Season 2 – Keener’s Legacy, Division Agents are tasked to take on a new rogue cell and stop them from continuing the plan left by Aaron Keener. Players must own The Division 2 Warlords of New York expansion in order to participate in Seasons.

Much like Season 1, Season 2 will give players the chance to unlock unique rewards, including two new exotics, a skill variant and a gearset. Players with the Warlords of New York expansion can play Season 2 for free and can purchase a Season 2 Pass to earn additional rewards for their progression. The Pass also offers more opportunities to unlock Season specific gear and exclusive vanity items such as a unique Season outfit. Players have until June 15 to complete Season 1 before Season 2 kicks off June 23.

Other in-game activities will continue in Season 2 as well, including:
  • Leagues: A series of challenges for players, with opportunities to unlock rewards based on players’ ability to complete challenges
  • Global Events: Time-limited in-game events during which a global modifier is applied to the entire game and players will be rewarded for completing specific tasks
During each Season, players will grow their Season level to unlock various rewards by participating in seasonal activities and playing the game.

Operation Iron Horse

In the Second Raid players will face a new challenge that teams of eight must work together to overcome. Additionally, exclusive rewards will be available for both Level 30 and Level 40 players as they tackle the most challenging mission in the game thus far. The release date of Second Raid will be revealed in the near future.
So Ubi continues its commitment to post-launch support for its Triple-A stable, and will be divulging even more information at the forthcoming Ubisoft Forward digital event in place of E3, so stay tuned for more as it lands across our desks.

10 levels is not enough IMO. I stopped playing after I hit 30 in the base game.
