What you need to know
- Warlords of New York is The Division 2's next large expansion.
- It is not included in the Year One Pass and is instead a separate purchase.
- Ubisoft just released an animated short to prep players.
The massive Warlords of New York expansion, which we previewed earlier this month, is set to drop on March 3 in The Division 2 and Ubisoft has released a short animated trailer giving us some backstory that leads up to the events of the DLC.
We knew Division agent Aaron Keener had gone rogue, and now we see how he manipulates four of his lieutenants into helping him secure lower Manhattan. His lieutenants include chemical engineer Vivian Conley, former drone engineer and hacker Theo Parnell, former Black Op Javier Kajika, and Rikers faction leader James Dragov, who also happens to be a master of heavy weapons.
To celebrate the expansion's release soon, The Division 2 will be free to play from February 27 through March 2. It is also currently only $3 right now on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab), so you really don't have an excuse to pass it up unless you just aren't interested.
Should you take part in the free weekend and decide to buy the entire game later, all of your progress will carry over. The free weekend will not contain any level caps or players restrictions.
