Since the full reveal of The Division 2 at E3 2018, we’ve received a ton of information about the game. We know that the game will be set in Washington D.C. and will feature eight-player raids. Now thanks to an interview with GamingBolt, we know that the game will have Dynamic Faction Wars.
Associate creative director of The Division 2, Chadi El-Zibaoui spoke with GamingBolt in-depth about the game and the kind of content it will have. GamingBolt asked El-Zibaoui if The Division 2 would be making use of the kind of randomly generated missions we saw in the first game’s Underground DLC. El-Zibaoui replied, “We’ll have varied content.” El-Zibaoui went into detail about the variety of content players can expect and touched upon dynamic faction wars.
“We have something that is going to add much more dynamic content within the campaign, within the world. So, this is what we call a ‘living world.’ In this context, the factions, civilians they all need resources; after seven months everyone wants food and water, medicine. So, there will be resource control points spread within the city, and the factions will fight for it dynamically. This is something that will add a lot of content to the world.”
The Division 2 will have a larger focus on the survivors of the pandemic than its predecessor. Groups of survivors will form factions and will interact with each other, providing the players with many different gameplay situations. The upcoming sequel will feature a lot more content than the first game which was mentioned during Ubisoft’s E3 2018 showcase.
The game will have a campaign/ story mode that can be played solo. Ubisoft is also improving the endgame content after the criticism that the first game received. One of the ways that they are making the better endgame better adding ‘specializations’. Once a player hits the level cap, players will have access to several specializations with each one offering a unique signature weapon and additional skills. The Division 2 will also have a year’s worth of free DLC that will give players new areas, game modes and story missions.
The Division 2 will release on March 15, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
