E3 2019: The Division 2 Episodes Fully Revealed

The Division 2 Review
The Division 2 Review

During the E3 2019 Ubisoft Press Conference this morning we got a detailed look at the upcoming The Division 2 episodes which will introduce expeditions and take players beyond central Washington D.C. to locations previously unreachable, including heading back to New York.

In case you forgot, the helicopter sitting just out the front right of the White House is where you will take off on your expeditions via a matchmaking system, similar to queueing for the various missions throughout Washington D.C.

Starting with The Division 2 Episode 1, players will head out to explore a presidential compound, the National Zoo, and Kenly College. Each area has been taken over by one of the known factions, and it was revealed that you will finally find and take out the leader of the Outcast faction at the National Zoo.

Next up, The Division 2 Episode 2 will focus on The Pentagon, which has been taken over by none other than The Black Tusk. Destroy the enemy forces before they uncover the truth that lies beneath The Pentagon in this epic scale expedition. Episode 2 will also bring the second 8-player raid, but unfortunately we got no news on matchmaking for the raids, or any details about what will be involved in the 2nd raid at the E3 2019 Ubisoft Press Conference.

We also didn’t learn any more about the gunner specialisation which is currently available on the public test server and launching in the title update later this month.

Finally The Division 2 Episode 3 heads back to The Big Apple. That’s right, we’re heading back to New York to find an old brother and perhaps rescue him in New York’s playground: Coney Island.

Watch the E3 2019 Ubisoft Press Conference The Division 2 Episodes Trailers below:

 

Taking back the Capitol was only the beginning. Watch now to see what’s coming to The Division 2 in its Episode 1 and Episode 2 updates. Three Episodes are included in The Division 2’s Year 1 roadmap, and will be available to all players for FREE!

It was also revealed during the E3 2019 Ubisoft Press Conference that Ubisoft is working with Netflix to make a The Division movie. Full details to come at a later date.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed The Division 2 at launch, giving it 4.5 stars, calling it, “a solid third person online shooter with plenty of different options and playstyles for each type of gamer.“ We have also been covering the game post-launch with the release of Tidal Basin, and will continue our support for The Division 2 moving forward as it expands throughout the country’s capital. You can find out more about the game’s first 8-player raid here, and for more official information on The Division 2, head to the official website here.
