Ubisoft released new details for their third-person shooter RPG Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 15.
Following The Division 2’s endgame, players can expect a full year of free post-launch content to experience. This content will be released as Episode which includes new missions and story scenes. Additionally, players can look forward to new PvP and PvE modes as well as specializations. Each specialization brings a new signature weapon and skill tree to unlock and master as players reach high-level challenges.
The publisher details the upcoming content:
- Tidal Basin – releasing shortly after launch, will reveal a new challenging stronghold held by the Black Tusks.
- Operation Dark Hours – releasing soon after launch – will be the first 8-player raid in the history of The Division.
- Episode 1, D.C. Outskirts: Expeditions – releasing in Summer 2019, will take players to the surrounding areas of Washington to fight for the liberation of the city in two additional main missions, a new game mode to investigate the fate of a lost convoy, encountering unexpected threats along the way.
- Episode 2: Pentagon: The Last Castle – releasing in Autumn 2019, will have additional main missions, with players storming the Pentagon and unveil the secrets that hide beneath one of America’s most iconic locations
- Episode 3 – releasing in Winter 2019 will close the first chapter of The Division 2 story and pave the way for more content to come.
However, players who purchase the Year 1 pass, which is included in the Gold Edition and Digital Ultimate Edition of the game as well as standalone for $39.99, will be able to experience the content 7 days earlier. The Year 1 pass also includes:
- Instant access to all Year 1 Specializations as they release
- 8 Classified Assignments revealing more about the fall of D.C.
- Exclusive cosmetics and additional in-game activities, such as a base of operations projects and bounties.

Author’s take: This is interesting and I’m curious to know how the publisher will approach Year Two content. Regardless, looking forward to post-launch stories.
