Ubisoft spent some time during the company’s E3 presentation this week to announced “Tom Clancy The Division 2”. The game was developed on the newly improved Snowdrop Engine and will release worldwide on March 15, 2019 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Players can register for beta access now for a chance to play at thedivisiongame.com/beta. You can also sign up to be notified by Amazon when the game is available for pre-order.
Set seven months after a deadly virus was released in New York City, The Division 2 raises the stakes for players by launching them into a fractured and collapsing Washington D.C. – built as a one-to-one recreation of the city according to the developers. In the wake of the virus, storms, flooding and subsequent chaos have radically transformed the city. From flooded urban areas to ravaged historic sites and landmarks, players will plunge into a dynamic open world with a wide variety of environments and biomes. As veteran Division agents, players are the last hope against the complete fall of society as enemy factions vie for control of the city. If Washington D.C. is lost, the entire nation falls.
Led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with seven other studios around the world, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is the next evolution in the open-world online shooter RPG genre that the first game helped establish. On Day One, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2’s main campaign will organically flow into a robust endgame complete with new challenges and narrative twists, creating a cohesive and meaningful experience for all types of players. Once players reach Level 30, they will be able to choose among different Specializations, such as demolitionist, sharpshooter or survivalist. Specialization is a flexible and versatile character progression system that offers players a new class of skills, mods, unique talents and tools such as the brand new signature weapons for new opportunities to grow their character and fine-tune their load-out the way they want. Additionally, a complete range of PvP experiences, scalable World Tiers and a fully redesigned and rebalanced Dark Zone experience will all be live on Day One. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will also introduce a franchise first: eight-player Raids, which will test the teamwork of the most experienced agents.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will continue to offer regular new content well beyond Day One. Post-launch content will provide new challenges and fresh gaming innovations. On top of that, players will have access to a full year of free story-driven missions, map expansions and new game features. Additionally, an optional premium pass giving players access to one year of exclusive and premium extra contents will be available, with more details to be revealed at a later date.
