Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment made some announcements today during their E3 2019 press conference regarding The Division 2.
Over the next year, three free episodes will expand the battleground of The Division 2. Each episode will bring new areas, modes, rewards, Specializations, and exotic gear and weapons. You can read details about each episode below.
Episode 1 D.C. Outskirts will take Agents outside of the city proper for the first time to explore the surrounding areas and woodlands as they hunt for President Ellis and the leader of the Outcasts. Among these areas will be the Washington National Zoo, where Agents will deal with threats throughout 11 different biomes. This episode will also introduce Expeditions mode, which will confront players with cooperative challenges to take on every week as they progress through different wings of Trinity College. Episode 1 D.C. Outskirts will release in July 2019, and Year 1 Pass holders will get early access to the episode one week before it launches for all players.
Episode 2 Pentagon: The Last Castle is slated for fall 2019. Agents will have to deal with elevated Black Tusk activity and tackle three new main missions inside one of America’s most iconic buildings. Additionally, The Division 2’s toughest challenge—Operation Dark Hours—will be getting some company as Episode 2 introduces a second 8-player raid. This time, players will travel to a remote foundry and take on the True Sons.
Episode 3 Brooklyn: Homecoming will take players back to New York City to confront new challenges at Coney Island. A nemesis is trying to spread the Green Poison virus, and a showdown is imminent when this episode arrives in early 2020.
