Ubisoft has revealed that The Division 2 will be receiving a new season this week, after a lengthy delay that has seen the gap filled by ‘re-runs’ of previous Year 2 seasons. Season 9: Hidden Alliance launches on Thursday, with a new enemy faction, new co-op mode, and more.
Hidden Alliance will revolve around new bad guy, Captain Lewis, the leader of a faction comprising four mini-bosses known collectively as his ‘true sons’. The Season Roadmap lists Lewis as a new target to take down, while eight-player co-op mode 'Countdown' will also be in the offing.
Countdown will have two fireteams working together at different points on the map, as a 15-minute timer ticks down towards your objective. Your goal is to stabilise a power plant before it permanently shuts down. A Season 9 Pass with 100 tiers of rewards, two ‘Apparel Events’, a new ‘Expertise’ feature, and more, are also on the way.
You can take a look at what's in store for The Division 2 Season 9: Hidden Alliance, ahead of its arrival on 12th May, in the trailer below.
