One of Ubisoft's most-anticipated new titles is The Division 2, the sequel to the popular first game that launched back in 2016. The Division 2 is a third-person military shooter which tasks you with stopping malicious forces from seizing control of the government in the District of Columbia.

Today, Ubisoft released a story trailer for the game. Unsurprisingly, it looks like it continues the story from the first game, but the sitatuion is much more dire this time around. If we're not mistaken, some familiar foes make an appearance here. The Division ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger because it didn't resolve a major plot point, here's hoping that The Division 2 fixes that and gives us a compelling, standalone story. The Division suffered due to its mismanaged storytelling. What do you think of the trailer? What did you think of The Division? Let us know.

Recently, Ubisoft announced that it will exclusively release its games on the Epic Games Store going forward. Many consider this to be a major blow to Steam because "AAA" experiences generate a lot of revenue, much more than the sales of a lot of smaller games combined. However, Epic Games takes a smaller cut so the choice seemed like an easy decision.

Ubisoft's Vice President of Partnership Chris Early said, "We entrust Epic Games to deliver a smooth journey for our fans, from preordering the game and enjoying our beta to the launch. Epic Games continues to disrupt the video game industry, and their third-party digital distribution model is the latest example, and something Ubisoft wants to support."
