The Division 2 State of the Game Recap: Title Update 9.1 Coming Soon, Home League Live Now

The Division 2 kicked off a new League this week, bringing a fresh two-week series of special challenges and rewards to Warlords of New York players. This week’s State of the Game livestream, which featured Community Developer Chris Gansler, offered up a quick look at what the Home League offers, as well as some insight into what’s coming in Title Update 9.1. Some highlights:

  • Title Update 9.1 is planned for May, and will address a number of gameplay issues reported by players.
  • The Home League is live now, with new activities in New York.
  • The first three Season One Manhunt Targets are now available.

State of the Game streams on Twitch, Mixer and YouTube. (To find out what was covered in the last episode, make sure to check out the previous State of the Game Recap).

PRIORITY ALERTS

  • The team is looking into reported connectivity issues across all regions.

Title Update 9.1, planned for May, will continue the developers’ work on bug-fix deployment with a client patch. Issues under review include:

  • NPC aggressiveness
  • NPC targeting accuracy
  • Grenade accuracy
  • FPS drops in the Dark Zones
  • The Warhound Convoy activity is considered too generous as-is, and is something the developers will look into for the patch.

Regular server-side updates will continue in the meantime, including a planned update next week. A release date for Title Update 9.1 is also anticipated next week.

Backpack Trophy & Apparel Keys

  • Log in to The Division 2 to claim until May 5.
  • Three Apparel Keys.
  • Soda Backpack Trophy.

New Event – Home League
