The Division 2 Takes The Fight To Washington DC, Focuses On Better Endgame Content
Seven months after the catastrophic events in New York City, the Strategic Homeland Division has set their sights on restoring order to the nation’s capital, Washington D.C, in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Ubisoft has released two new trailers along with actual gameplay footage during their scheduled E3 press conference yesterday.
Massive Entertainment will again be in charge of the game’s development. According to Variety, the Swedish studio revealed that The Division 2’s development is focused on giving players a better endgame experience, a lesson that they learned from the upcoming shooter’s predecessor. “The end game for us was a focus from the beginning,” said Creative Director Julian Gerighty. “We have expand options and available opportunities. We have accessible, deep and varied gear that drives the experience.”
Red Storm Assistant Creative Director Terry Spier also expounded on their “end-game first” philosophy and the important part it plays in the game’s development. “It means the game is built to have a healthy end-game ecosystem,” he said. “We are making sure we give them that deep gear game and customization we know they’re after. And we’re making sure we deliver on this setting.”
Ubisoft also promises three free DLC’s, called Episodes, within the game’s first year of launch. Episodes will add new areas, new missions, new solo and group activities, and new gear. The Division 2 is slated to launch on March 15, 2019. You can check out the trailers and gameplay video right after the break.
