Ubisoft have officially confirmed that The Division 2's raid named Operation Dark Hours will release on Thursday, 16 May 2019. The publisher showcased the new raid in the latest trailer and revealed rewards for those who complete it first.

The Division 2's long-awaited and delayed Title Update 3 has finally arrived today on all platforms. Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment detailed all the changes in the full patch notes but, probably one of the most anticipated features is still missing and it's scheduled to arrive separately in just a couple of days. 

Of course, we're talking about the Operation Dark Hours raid which now officially has a release date - Thursday, 16 May 2019. In the latest announcement and new trailer, Ubisoft showcased some of the features, challenges and rewards that players will get once the raid arrives.

Operation Dark Hours takes place on the Washington DC airport and it supports up to eight players - two squads of four, that will have to work together to reach the goal. The raid will offer some exclusive, unique looking rewards such as three brand new gear sets and The Eagle Bearer exotic assault rifle, which is a nice homage to Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

On top of this, players will get to complete new classified assignments - The Nelson Theater and National Bond Bank. These are available only to Year One Pass holders.

Operation Dark Hours will also introduce special apparel event which will bring five new outfits and one uniform. You'll also get to grind for two new masks, four emotes and eight weapon skins.

And last but not least, Ubisoft have something really special for the clan that completes the Operation Dark Hours raid first. As seen in the official trailer above, the clan name and the names of the players who complete it first will be written forever in the White House, along with the photos of the players' characters. A pretty neat reward that will certainly cause a big clan race on Thursday.
