Ubisoft reveals The Division 2’s Year 1 road-map


Ubisoft has set out the content that will be added to The Division 2 during its first year on release.

In a video (below), and on the game’s official website, the French publisher revealed that the first year of The Division 2 will see the release of three Episodes which will be free to everyone who owns the game: “We will release three Episodes during the course of Year 1, expanding on the story of The Division 2. These Episodes will introduce new narrative driven content, as well as new ways to play the game. This additional content will be free for all players of The Division 2.”

The Division 2’s Year 1 season will see plenty of content added beyond those Episodes: “We will also release three brand new Specializations for you to take on Washington’s challenges in a new way, each of them bringing a new unique signature weapon and skills tree to unlock and master.”

Ubisoft fleshed out what the Episodes will bring: “The first Episode, DC Outskirts: Expeditions will take you to the surrounding areas of Washington as you chase down elite members of the Outcasts and the Black Tusks and fight for the liberation of the city in new locations. The second Episode, Pentagon: The Last Castle, will bring you to one of America’s most iconic locations to unveil what secrets lie inside this well protected maze. Our third Episode will conclude Year 1 of The Division 2 and pave the way for more thrilling content.”

In addition, Tidal Basin will be added to the game: “Shortly after launch – a new challenging faction stronghold held by the Black Tusk. Next will come Operation Dark Hours, the first eight-player raid in the history of The Division.”

For those who purchase a Year 1 Pass – included in the Gold and Ultimate Editions, and Ubisoft added: “The Year 1 Pass will also become available as a separate purchase when the game launches,” – will, among other perks, get seven-day early access to the Episodes, instant unlock of the Specializations, exclusive access to eight Classified Assignments, plus additional Bounties, Projects and cosmetics.
