First of all, Tom Clancy’s The Division was a HUGELY successful game when it was released in March 2016, spawning a massive community in the gaming world. Now a sequel is due for release right around the corner (March 15th) and we cannot wait! The game follows a lineage much similar to the first game, but this time it’s focused in Washington DC. The game is an action shooter RPG set in an entirely open world, players are able to play in co-op or singularly. There are also PvP modes available for those who want a bit of high octane competitive action. The Division 2 also offers much more variety in missions than the first game, brand new challenges and a new progression system for players. In an effort to keep the game fresh and inviting for months and years to come.
Washington D.C is demolished and in disarray, it’s on the bring of collapse. Consequently, there’s looting in the streets and tons of instability from within the city. Society is a mess, which is emphasised from the fact that there’s always rumblings of a coup. It is up to you and your Division ally’s to save the city. Like in the first game you a part of an elite Division. A Division made up of civilian agents, of whom are the last line of defence for the safety of the city. You are tasked with using the plethora of gear and skills available to take on the oncoming threat. In Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, Washington D.C is replicated in a 1:1 representation of the real city. Furthermore, you are given maps which offer up-close-and-personal views of landmarks and neighbourhoods around the city, including the enemy hideouts!
The here are a range of factions that Division agents have to take on, Divisions made up of those who remain, factions of those who look to cause more harm than good:
- True Sons
- Black Tus
In PvP mode you explore three Dark Zones across Washington D.C. It is up to you to explore these areas of the city, whilst keeping an eye out for players looking to cause harm. In an Player vs. Environment vs. Player experiences.
Such as Skirmish: here you go head to head against other teams in a classic Team Deathmatch scenario. Domination: here you are tasked with capturing locations to claim dominance against other players, in this objective based mode.
Weapons are highly customisable and are vital to your surivial in The Division 2. Differing weapons, armour and cosmetic options for all elements of the game is available to players. This includes things such as weapons, armour and exotic items. Some are only available to the high end players, so best get that grind on! Furthermore, those who reach the endgame have unique specialisations on offer. Allowing even further customisation!
The End Game is a feature at the end of the game which throws in some more challenges, game modes and high end rewards to further test and upgrade agents. Once an agent has reached level 30, players will have to pick a specialisation. Such as Survivalist, Demolitionist and Sharpshooter. Yet, each of the selections will unlock a unique signature weapon and additional skills.
So, much like other Ubisoft games, The Division 2 will be constantly updated and players will have access to a full year of free story-driven missions, map expansions and new game features.
