It should go without saying that if you don’t want real spoilers, you probably should just close this tab or move on to the next article. But if you do, dig right on in.
The Division 2’s first “year 2” DLC is apparently called Warlords of New York. API scrubbers and eagle-eyed watchers of some of Ubisoft’s global YouTube channels have mined up a bit of info about it, including the fact that it’s being called an expansion and it’ll have a new open world map in New York, level cap bump to 40, a “revamped” progression system, new tactical goodies, and an “extended endgame” in addition to the new story. The Ultimate Edition will apparently include the base game, level 30 booster so people can skip the early game and get right to the expansion, unlocks for all endgame specs, exclusive missions, and some exclusive cosmetics. As for the plot?
“New York is under threat. Aaron Keener, a former Division Agent turned rogue, has taken control of Lower Manhattan, backed by four devoted and highly skilled lieutenants. Trained by The Division but disavowing its ideals, they are now the highest authority in town and the most formidable force the Agents have ever faced.”
It appears to be launching March 3rd. Division players will want to catch the whole stream today at 2 p.m. EST, leaks or not.
