The Division 2's launch trailer captures the chaos in Washington

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. It's unclear how the rest of the country is affected at this point, but we should find out soon enough.

Today, the game received its long-awaited launch trailer. The short video focuses on the plot and the chaos that has engulfed the capitol. It seems like the endgame "Black Tusks" faction is deadlier than they initially seemed.

Last weekend, an open beta took place for The Division 2. A lot of gamers participated so hopefully the final game will be a polished experience when it launches in a few days.

The Division 2 will receive a lot of free updates in 2019 and if you own the Year 1 Pass, you can play them a few days early. The Year 1 Pass is included in the Gold Edition and Ultimate Edition, but you can also purchase it for $40. The pass grants early access to all additional content, instant access to new Specilizations, more Classified Assignments to reveal more about the city, and some cosmetic items that should help you stand out.

  • I played the open data and I have to admit it was awesome they actually fixed the biggest problem I had in the first division game was the level system was so unbalanced I could be level one and my friend is level 30 and I end up fighting level 30 enemies and I get killed too easily it was so frustrating that I gave up playing it permanently so I decided to give division 2 a try and much to my surprise they actually fixed the unbalanced level system I was trying it out with my friend he was level 10 and I just started out level one and I was fighting enemies according to my level and he was fighting enemies according to his level I have to give Ubisoft a round of applause👏 now I'm going to have some fun when I actually get Tom Clancy's division 2 😉👍
  • Glad to hear that 😊
  • Well of course you will get one-shot by level 30 enemies if you are level 15...
  • Open beta was epic. This is one of the top games of 2019.
  • Excited for the 15th
