The Division 2 Update 10.1 Is Out This Week, Brings Loot Changes
The Division 2's Title Update 10.1 will alter loot stats, address bugs, and more.
In the broadcast, members of the Massive Entertainment development team discussed what's to come in Title Update 10.1. Along with addressing various bug fixes and balance adjustments, the upcoming patch will tweak the attributes and stats of loot drops. Loot will now have its minimum item power increased on higher difficulties, with slight bumps for Challenging and bigger bumps for Heroic and Legendary difficulty settings. This is in direct response to the item power change from last month's Title Update 10 patch.
Additionally, Ubisoft is looking into how skills can be swapped when Title Update 10.1 drops. This change is for skills with long cooldowns that make switching between them a hassle. "The team's main priority is to give players back the ability to switch their loadouts while a skill is on cooldown," Ubisoft said. "The planned change will let players switch their loadouts while the skill on cooldown remains equipped."
While Title Update 10.1 is slated to arrive later this month, Ubisoft confirmed that Title Update 11 is currently in the works. No release date has been announced, but the studio said more details will come soon. These could arrive during today's Ubisoft Forward event, which is an E3 replacement presentation focused on Ubisoft's upcoming projects. In the past, these presentations have also included information on live-service games.
Season 2 of The Division 2's Warlords of New York expansion is still underway. The looter-shooter recently received a new Iron Horse raid that was reserved exclusively for Level 40 players. However, the eight-player raid is now available for non-expansion pass owners who are also Level 30. It should allow more players to continue experiencing the game together, particularly with it now being over a year old.
