The Division is moving to a new city. After the first game had us wandering the environs of New York City, The Division 2 is headed to Washington D.C. The game is set in the lawless and broken down ruins of Washington D.C., with players fighting over control of the last vestiges of safe zones and resources within the city.
As was the case with the first game, cooperation will be a necessity to succeed in The Division 2. Expect team-based challenges and modes to be at the forefront here. Ubisoft also detailed a bit about the end-game content for the title.
Players will choose between 3 different specializations, each one offering a unique approach to gameplay. The game will launch with three different specializations: Sharpshooter, Demolitionist, or Survivalist. Each specialization will offer a different power weapon, special weapons designed to differentiate each playstyle. As agents progress through their specialization, they’ll unlock special new abilities that can be used to help tackle The Divison 2’s endgame content and 8-player raids.
Players will eventually be able to gain access to the beta, although details of when that might be, or what will actually be included are pretty scarce at the moment. Check back after the E3 presser and there could be some new announcements. Although we can see new weapons and combat abilities in action in the coverage we’ve seen thus far.
Check out the trailers and announcements below for The Division 2. You can also check out the full Ubisoft E3 2018 presser here.
The Division 2 will be released on March 15, 2019 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
