The Division 2's biggest challenge yet starts at 9:00AM PDT on May 16, when Operation Dark Hours kicks off as The Division's first eight-player raid. Open to Agents who have reached World Tier 5 and attained a gear score of at least 490, Operation Dark Hours is a test of teamwork and skill unlike any to come before it. Taking Agents to Washington National Airport, which the Black Tusk have commandeered to fly in new troops and supplies, Operation Dark Hours will pit players against some of the game's toughest bosses, backed by the most advanced technology the Black Tusk has deployed yet.
Players who brave Operation Dark Hours' challenges can score exclusive loot, including new gear sets and an exotic weapon, and all players who complete the raid will earn a clan banner icon, as well as a trophy for their clan space. Also, players who complete Operation Dark Hours between May 16 and May 23 will receive a commemorative arm patch.
A special reward awaits the very first team of players to complete Operation Dark Hours after release: they'll see themselves immortalized in-game, with their team photo and names displayed in the White House for all other players to see. Fans can follow the race to complete the raid through Operation Dark Hours: Race to World First, on Twitch Rivals starting at 9:00AM PDT on May 16.
