Does someone have a clue what kind of mode that could be?
It's in the release notes I linked: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/146572/pts-testing-phases-and-patch-notes-updated-31-03-22-16-56-cet?lang=en-US
Countdown is a new 8-player endgame mode for The Division 2. Two groups of four SHD agents are deployed to a power plant to prevent a lockdown. Racing against the clock, the agents must work together to secure the site and stabilize the power plant. Believing their mission is complete the agents prepare for extraction and are pursued by heavily armed and technologically advanced hostiles.
8 players PvE
Randomized encounters and flow on a new unique map
New gear and weapon drops [Phase 2]
Available through matchmaking
Not a fan of it being 8 players, but at least it has matchmaking.
Boo to 8 players. I'll try it, but I don't see myself playing it much. Ugh.
I'm all in for the 8 Player thing. Always liked the Raids. Time to get the Team back!
played both 3 times each, will never play them again
I very much like both maps though. I wished they would have make use of these maps for missions and projects as well and integrating in open world, in addition to current mode.
Only one of my friends occasionally plays raids.
Those PvP changes are glorious
Though now everyone will catch wise to my Spotter builds
@apexxxero PC.. but mine is build around not having a shield - it's different than the Meta. I started using it back when Intimidate was still the Meta.
Also uses a .45 Vector for the higher bDPS and innate Crit to allow for a more well rounded build [also have a Shotgun/Opportunist version]. I'll be curious to see what the Brand bonuses are on those new perfect variants.
Granted, I barely use it.. I'm normally just running PfE to make the Landmarks a cakewalk
From my perspective they are wasting resources into the wrong things. I am not interested in any of these things, having played both games more than 2.500 hours each, being at SHD 6.200 right now, having also quite some division friends.
I wonder whether they make customer surveys to check what the majority of the customer wants. Of course I can not make a statistical reliable judgement based on the views of my division friends only , but no one cares about stuff like this.
Of course there are always people being interested in this and that but I would be surprised if this is of interest of the majority of division players.
I am really struggling how someone with a healthy brain can come up with such stuff. Sorry, for my emotions, I got really angry when I read the announcement.

So... what about the PC BUG!? Will this update finally solve that crashing/lagging bug from the beginning of last year!?

They call it countdown, to me it sounds like a variation of "Capture the flag".
@thevigilant-one The description of this new game mode sounds exactly like the third boss in IH Raid.

Will you open up PTS Forums for this?
I see that you already found it but for anyone else wanting the PTS forum it's right here:
