Both franchises have a viral epidemic and deadly bioweapons as their main elements of the story, so to have a Resident Evil event in The Division 2 seems quite fitting.
As a part of this celebration, The Division 2 is receiving a special set of Resident Evil-themed cosmetic items, including outfits, weapon skins, individual vanity items.
In addition to cosmetics, players will get a chance to celebrate Resident Evil by collecting 7 new back trophies and 4 new patches.
This crossover event launches alongside the newly revamped Reanimated Global Event, which is set to be released with the Update 12.1.
The Division 2 x Resident Evil crossover is a limited-time event, so make sure to grab all skins and other cosmetics on time!
How to get Resident Evil items in The Division 2
To obtain Leon Kennedy RPD 3-piece outfit, the only thing players will need to do is to log in throughout the Resident Evil event at any point, and they will automatically have the skin added to their collection.
The event starts on February 2nd and ends on 15th February, so make sure to grab the free skin before that.
Additional outfits, weapon skins, and other rewards will be available in special Resident Evil caches that contain themed cosmetic items.
Ubisoft hasn't yet announced if these will replace Field Proficiency caches or they will be earned on some other way.
