During their E3 press conference this afternoon, Ubisoft announced more information regarding Tom Clancy's The Division 2.
The new squad-based shooter in the popular franchise puts players into the shoes of a Division agent. After a strain of smallpox is released on Black Friday, things take a turn for the worse and the country is falling apart. It's up to the government agency known as The Division to help take back the streets from anarchy.
Ubisoft showed a trailer for the new co-op shooter, which gave a little info about it. This includes the setting of the game. The shooter will take place in Washington D.C. as things descend into chaos.
Another new bit of info regards endgame content. After the main campaign, you must choose a new specialization for yourself. New quests will send you toward making powerful weapons for yourself. This is all to set you up for the big endgame, which includes a major addition to the game.
For the first time in the series, raids are coming to The Division 2. Eight players will be able to take on intense challenges in the endgame. Ubisoft promises they've learned and improved on what they created in the first game.
Another major announcement are the DLC plans for the game. Ubisoft says they'll be supporting the shooter for years to come. For the first year of DLC, there will be three major episodes of content. All of these episodes will be totally free for all Division 2 players to play.
You can register for the beta right now on the Division 2 website. Check out the trailer for the game here:
