Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Gets New Mode In Title Update 11
Ubisoft continues to expand on The Division 2, with Title Update 11 set to hit hard drives worldwide on September 22nd. This update will be adding a new mode “The Summit” as well as adding armor transmogrification, improving loot, and making serious – and seriously welcome – changes to how mods work.
The update also adds a new mode: The Summit. This pits agents, either solo or in squads, against 100 floors of action in a high-rise just packed full of enemies. Make it to the roof – you can use Rally Points as checkpoints to resume the action if you can’t dedicate entire days to this encounter – and you’ll fight a special battle.
I’m interested in diving back into The Division 2 when this hits, how about you?
TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION® 2 WARLORDS OF NEW YORK ANNOUNCES NEW MODE “THE SUMMIT” AS PART OF UPCOMING TITLE UPDATE 11
- Starting September 22, The Summit Will Allow Warlords of New York Players to Experience What The Division has to Offer in a Single Replayable Mode
- TU 11 also includes Season 3, Where the Manhunt Continues with Bardon Schaeffer, The Elusive Leader of the Black Tusk

Montreal — September 10, 2020 — Today at Ubisoft’s pre-show prior to its digital press conference, Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft announced that a new game mode is coming to Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2 Warlords of New York, “The Summit.” The new mode is part of Title Update 11, which will go live on September 22. As part of TU 11, Season 3 will begin with a new manhunt, and major improvements will be made to the game’s core features. While The Summit and Season 3 are available for Warlords of New York owners, the game improvements will be available for all players.
Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2 is available on the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC, as well as on Stadia and UPLAY+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.*
The Summit (Warlords of New York Players)
Playing in squads or solo, The Summit will take Division Agents to a high-rise building, where they can scale up to 100 floors of action. Players will face different challenges and enemies on each floor as they progress toward the rooftop, where a special battle awaits. Using Rally Points (permanent checkpoints), players can also choose to focus on select sections of the building. This allows them to play at a preferred difficulty level and be rewarded accordingly for their efforts. The Summit will bring a new way to experience The Division in a single mode and offers high replayability as each attempt will be different. TU 11 will release on September 22 on all platforms for free.
Season 3 (Warlords of New York Players)
Also, on September 22, the third season of The Division 2 Warlords of New York will be available with a new manhunt. Players will target Bardon Schaeffer, the elusive leader of the Black Tusk as he recruits four disavowed agents to form and lead a new rogue cell. They will earn new gear and rewards as they progress through the season.
Seasons are part of the Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Warlords of New York expansion and are a series of three-month long narrative-driven mini campaigns.
Players can also expect a familiar face to return for Season 4. More information to come at a later date.
Major Improvements (All Players)
Core changes and major improvements will be introduced as part of TU 11. These changes were tested on the game’s Public Test Server from September 4 to September 10.
Main Title Update 11 improvements:
- Appearance Mods – or Transmogrification – is a new system to the existing character menu for The Division 2. Players can change the appearance of their gear beyond the normal dye and coloration.
Masks, backpacks, kneepads, gloves, holsters and all armor gear will be changeable. Appearance Mods will allow players to finally get the specialized look they always wanted or change the style of their setup.
Appearance Mods will become a mainstay of the game for all players, Level 1-40.
- The improved ‘Rainbow’ loot will bring an update on how gear is assigning the first attribute on a gear piece. The first attribute will now have a percentage chance to roll the same as the core attribute. Players will experience less rainbow loot, meaning that items for a skill brand (Wyvern) are more likely to roll a skill-related attribute.
- With Agnostic Mod Slots, all gear pieces will change (mask, chest, backpack) to accept any gear mod type. This means players can add some armor regen into their pure red build without sacrificing a recalibration on the mod slot.
Today, The Division 2 also announced that the game will be backward compatible on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PlayStation® 5, allowing you to play The Division 2 on the new generation of consoles. In addition, the game will be cross-play compatible with next-gen consoles. This means Agents on PlayStation 4 can battle it out with Agents on PlayStation 5. Players on Xbox One can also take on Agents on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
