The Division 2 will ring in the holiday season with a new update, as well as a chilly holiday event. They call it Situation Snowball.
The massively multiplayer online shooter will receive ‘Title Update 6.1’ on December 10th. In doing so, it will adopt a dark winter theme, along with a Silent Night Apparel Cache boasting 35 new items to collect. All players who log in during the holiday event will receive one key, while Year One Pass holders will be given a total of three.
In addition, a beta version of the new Hardcore mode will also be added. Within it, death will be permanent, adding a great amount of additional challenge.
So, how about those snowballs? Well, as we hinted above, the cold white stuff will also play a big role in The Division 2‘s holiday event. During the Christmas season, elusive enemies will appear wearing Santa hats. Downing one will grant you access to special weapons that shoot — you guessed it — snowballs.
