The Division 2 Tidal Basin UPDATE patch notes, server downtime schedule, release date

The Division 2 is about to get a major game update on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The first part of the Invasion: Battle for D.C. storyline begins with the huge Tidal Basin update on April 5.

But before you can get stuck into the new content, you’ll first need to download a big update.

The Division 2 Tidal Basin update will be accompanied by a lengthy list of patch notes and three hours of server downtime maintenance.

“The servers will shut down for a scheduled maintenance Friday, April 5th at 09:30 AM CEST / 03:30 AM EDT / 12:30 AM PDT,” reads an Ubisoft tweet.

“Estimated downtime is approximately 3 hours. We will be releasing the Invasion: Battle for D.C. update during this time.”

For UK fans, the servers will go offline at 8.30am BST, before returning at around 11.30am.

According to the early patch notes, the Tidal Basin update introduces Heroic difficulty level, which provides more of a challenge.

There’s also the Ongoing Directive, True Patriot, and Hard Wired gear sets, as well as a new WTS world tier and a 500 score cap.

That’s on top of Weekly Invaded Missions and perhaps most exciting of all, the Tidal Basin faction stronghold.

“Upon logging into D.C., you will be met with a brief radio call informing you of developments nearby that require your attention,” Ubisoft explains. “Completing this new side mission unlocks the Tidal Basin Stronghold.”

Ubisoft reminds fans that the content will only be available with a 425 gear score at World Tier 4.

Ubisoft also explains how to unlock the Weekly Invaded Missions, which can be played to unlock the new gear sets.

“After completing Tidal Basin, Coordinator Manny Ortega at the Base of Operations will have intel on surrounding Black Tusk operations in D.C,” Ubisoft continues. “This unlocks Weekly Invaded Missions, available on any difficulty! These missions will reset on a weekly cadence and apply to the previous story missions.

“If you are after the new gear sets, the Black Tusks will have a chance to drop pieces in World Tier 5.”

The Tidal Basins update will be followed by the release of the Operation Dark Hours 8-player raid on April 25.
