Ubisoft has revealed the new expansion Warlords of New York will be available for new and current The Division 2 players this March.
In the new expansion you will go on a manhunt for Aaron Keener, a former Division Agent who has gone rogue. Keener, along with his network of Rogue Agents, is seen as threat to the rebirth of civilisation and players will have to roam Lower Manhattan, a former Dark Zone recently hit by a devastating hurricane, in order to track him down. Players are tasked to explore new zones, each with iconic locations such as Two Bridges, Chinatown, and Wall Street to get to Keener, tackling each of his Rogue Agents with their own unique back stories and skills along the way.
The release of Warlords of New York will also see the release of Title Update 8 that includes a host of gameplay enhancements based on player feedback and includes build diversity, gear streamlining and even more meaningful loot. Title Update 8 will see a RPG overhaul, allowing players to manage their gear inventory more easily. Updated views will also always show the roll ranges for each stat on a piece of gear or weapon. God rolls also return, improving readability so you can see the gear’s usefulness to your build. A more streamlined gear recalibration system, with item and stat usefulness indicators, as well as permanent attribute and stat storage at the recalibration station will also be included in the update. Dark Zones are also being revitalised, returning to a simpler mechanic. The focus is on rewarding player-to-player interaction, whether it’s fighting against each other, or helping a fellow Agent against a tough Rogue player. The will also be a level cap increase from level 30 to 40.
The Warlords of New York will also see the introduction of Seasons, leagues and global events. Season will be 3-month-long themed endgame event with a new main target and network to track down. The first season begins a week after the release of Warlords of New York, with additional season coming at regular intervals.
Leagues are a series of challenges with opportunities to unlock rewards based on players’ ability to complete these challenges. Whilst Global Events are time-limited events during which a global modifier is applied to the entire game and players will be rewarded by completing specific tasks.
Warlords of New York will be available from 3rd March. More on Tom Clancy's The Division 2 >>
