The Division 2 getting Warlords of New York Expansion
The next expansion for the shooter arriving in March
Ubisoft has announced The Division 2 Warlords of New York, a narrative-driven expansion available on March 3, 2020.
In Warlords of New York, Division Agents will go on the manhunt for Aaron Keener, a former Division Agent who has now gone rogue. To track down Keener, Agents will roam Lower Manhattan; a former Dark Zone that was recently hit by a devastating hurricane that hit New York City harder than anywhere else in the US. Agents are tasked to explore new zones, each with iconic locations such as Two Bridges, Chinatown, and Wall Street.
While current The Division 2 players can purchase the expansion on its own, new players can purchase the Standard Edition, which includes The Division 2 base game and The Division 2 Warlords of New York expansion. The Ultimate Edition, which gives players both the game and its expansion, as well as all of The Division 2’s Year 1 content, classified assignments and unlocked specializations, will also be available.
Along with Warlords of New York, Title Update 8 will include an RPG overhaul, allowing players to better read and manage their gear inventory. The UI screen will be updated to always show the roll ranges for each stat on a piece of gear or weapon. The overhaul also includes the return of god rolls, improving readability and helping players make better decisions on the gear’s usefulness to their build.
The expansion will also introduce a new post-launch design: Seasons – a 3-month-long themed endgame event with a new main target and his network to track down, introducing them at a regular pace, each with their own stories and unique rewards. The first season begins one week after the release of The Division 2 Warlords of New York. In addition to the Seasonal Manhunt, Seasons will offer new in-game activities.
The Division 2 is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
