Ubisoft’s Division 2 was a huge success last year. The much anticipated sequel to the first game offered a new location and much improved game mechanics, weapons and raids and a multiplayer experience. As with all games of this type however, it can suffer from grind boredom if there is really no new content. You’re playing the game over and over, constantly grinding to upgrade your guns, get better armor and max out your character as best so you can be unstoppable. Once you’ve done that, what’s next?
Unlike the first Division where the content was spaced out over very long periods of time, Ubisoft does not intend to let the Division 2 fall off the map and with that we get the new expansion “Warlords of New York”
The Division 2 goes back to the original location of the first game for some action with rogue gangs that have taken over NY in an extreme way. The gameplay trailer above will give you an idea of what to expect with the newest expansion. More or less, you’re going to be through 4 sectors of NY once again taking on the now strengthened and hardened gangs like the Cleaners and the Rikers. What those gangs lacked in the first time was organization. This time it’s not the case. Not only are they well organized because they’re being run by rogue Division agents. They have better weapons, bigger numbers and the Division doesn’t carry the same reputation as saviors so those that have survived who are not in the gangs have little to no trust for the Division. There’s a whole new dynamic this time around and with a new level cap of 40 you can expect this expansion to have a fair amount of difficulty so your build will be super important.
It’s an exciting time for the Division 2 and something that will turn the game around for quite some time. As a Division 2 player myself, I’m looking forward to playing this new expansion being in a different environment. You can pre-order the expansion now for XBox One, PS4 and PC for $30 in their respective stores and get in on this new expansion when it releases on March 3rd.
