Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 devs talked about the reason behind adding rubber duck easter eggs in the game. Apparently, rubber ducks are a sign of someone you can talk to at any time and they believe it’ll be a fun addition to the game. Fans have been raging over these duck spread out across the open world. They also revealed the story behind the infamous ‘Duck Shrine’ in the map which had the words ‘Producktive’ written behind it. They have also recently introduced Tommy the teddy bear in the game which could point towards a possible easter egg.

Trials Rising is also getting a new track called the ‘Gigatrack.’ The devs claim that this is the longest, most intense track ever. The track takes you through several different environments and tests you to your limits. The best part? This comes as a free upgrade so everyone can challenge themselves. The ‘Gigatrack’ releases this Thursday.
