In the latest State of the Game, Massive Entertainment talked about the changes that are coming to The Division 2 in the Title Update 6. Players can look forward to increased stash space and a complete revamp of the branded gear sets.
During this week's State of the Game live stream for The Division 2, Senior Game Designer Nikki Kuppens who works on the economy and progression team talked about all the changes that are coming with the launch of Episode 2, Title Update 6.
As earlier announced by Massive Entertainment, the new update will primarily focus on loot and gear improvements and by the looks of it, there are plenty of incoming changes that The Division 2 players will appreciate including the increased stash size to 300.
According to Kuppens, the team is currently working on changes to gear, brand sets and named weapons with a focus on re-balancing of the game with the next update. The devs want to ensure that all gear brands have an item for every slot to remove build restrictions. This should allow players to create unique builds, add more clarity (no more guessing which brand slots are available, and which are not) and new items.
Additionally, only four items will be needed to complete a gear set and unlock its full bonus and chest pieces and backpacks for all gear sets will be made more powerful with the addition of a high-end talent. Also, items from Raid gears sets will become widely available but the backpack and chest items will remain exclusive to the Raid.
As for the named items, the devs are adding special visuals so they are more exciting when they drop and are making them more powerful with new versions of existing talents. Players can also look forward to 35 new named items, including weapons and gear.
On top of these changes, a new system is also coming and it allows Agents to target specific loot from a random rotation. This will show players which zones and in what missions the loot has a chance to drop in. There will be a new UI element to show players if they've picked up the loot they want to hunt.
