Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Set to Be Playable at XO18

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 from Ubisoft will be playable on Xbox One for those going to X018 in Mexico City this November.

Following the announcements of Crackdown 3 and Kingdom Hearts III being playable at X018, the official Xbox Mexico Twitter account revealed another huge third-party AAA game releasing in early 2019 would be playable at the revived Xbox event taking place this November in Mexico City. The game in question: Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. 

First announced all the way back in March, gameplay was first shown off at E3 2018. The game was playable to the public and press at E3 and has subsequently made appearances at Gamescom, PAX West, and Tokyo Game Show. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has made consistent appearances at gaming events throughout 2018 and heavily features the Xbox brand in its marketing, so its appearance at X018 makes a lot of sense.

Like its 2016 predecessor, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a multiplayer-focused shooter, but it now takes place around Washington D.C. instead of New York City. Players have three classes to choose from – Sharpshooter, Demolitionist, and Survivalist – and is also poised to feature 8-player raid and free DLC. 

While the game takes place in the capital of the United States, Ubisoft Massive COO Alf Condelius still recently stated that the game won’t make any overtly political statements because they are “bad for business.” If you want to see what DualShockers thought about what we played of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 at E3, you can check out our preview. 

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 15, 2019, and can already be pre-ordered on Amazon. X018 takes place in Mexico City, Mexico this November, with a new Inside Xbox Presentation happening on November 10.
