Today, Ubisoft showcased more footage of The Division 2 at the Ubisoft E3 2018 Press Conference. The game will be released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on March 15, 2019, and Ubisoft promised more footage of the gameplay after the conference in addition to the gameplay trailer revealed during the event.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is set to the backdrop of Washington D.C. in crisis; Agents of The Division are tasked with pulling the city back from the brink amidst infighting of various factions. It is set roughly six months after the virus of the first game spread, and it doesn’t seem like what the players did in the first game stopped much of the chaos and anarchy that ensued if Washington’s jungle-filled appearance is any indicator.

This particular trailer is a cinematic introduction to the chaos-fueled world of The Division 2, which struggles to real back from the trauma of near-destruction. Developers promise that the game will offer a “compelling story-based campaign”, and that players will focus on one of three classes that will shape the path for the recovery of America: Sharpshooter; Demolitionist; Survivalist. The Division 2 will also feature eight-player raids, shaping it to become a proper MMO. Additionally, Episodes 1, 2, and 3 of DLC will be available in Year 1 and will all be free. Things are looking awfully exciting for fans of the game’s upcoming release.

A beta was recently announced and is available for interested parties at the game’s website. The game will be developed by the same folks involved in the original game’s development, including Massive Entertainment, Red Storm, and Ubisoft Reflections. We got to check out some of the gameplay earlier in a quick-look during the explosive Microsoft conference in addition to the trailers present at this particular conference.

The Division 2 will be released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on March 15, 2019.
