Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: Better than the First Game
If you liked Tom Clancy’s The Division and have been eagerly anticipating a sequel, then you’re going to love this one. Ubisoft recently announced that a sequel has been in the works and it’s finally going to be released on March 15, 2019: Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. It’s not too hard to find nice things to say about The Division. While the game has been in the market for two years, FPS lovers have still consistently clamored over the highly competitive raids it has featured along with certain RPG elements akin to Destiny. And this time, look like we’re in for a treat and a lot more.
Will Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 have a beta?
Given that the release date isn’t that far away, there’s an open beta of the game which you can sign up for if you prefer to get a feel for the game early. So far, there hasn’t been a confirmed date for the beta itself, but it’ll most likely be sometime around January or February. This is a great option for players who want to test the waters before buying or pre-ordering the game since the standard game costs about $59.99.
Is this game all about co-op?
While group work and cooperation is indeed vital, especially on raids, there’s still hope for lone players who just want to enjoy the experience by themselves. Like the first game, there’s a big giant city out there to conquer, and in this case, it’s Washington D.C. While the emphasis is on group play and teamwork between you and your squad, a recent announcement made by Mathias Karlson, the Game Direction, the game can is beatable via the single-player experience. That includes the Division 2’s endgame missions, which will feature notorious difficulty spikes. You can play through the entire story campaign into endgame content alone, but you can also breeze through the same content in two, three, or four player co-op. Furthermore, you may choose the eight-player co-op that’s new to the scene, which are two full groups in the raid if you want a challenge.

What are we getting more of in this sequel?
In a nutshell, we’re getting more blood, more violence, and rampant shooting. This game is not for the faint of heart, but it’s definitely not as bad or as gruesome horror games. Featuring hardened criminals who had escaped from prison, violent looters taking advantage of the city’s shutdown, and action-packed shootouts, Ubisoft’s The Division has the makings of a pretty grim game. According to a recently-filed ESRB rating, Ubisoft plans to take it to the next level with The Division 2!
The folks over at Electronic Software Ratings Board (ESRV) have taken the online open-world third-person shooter for a test-run in order to determine what type of content rating it should be given. So, what does the ESRB think of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2? Well, like the first game, it gave the sequel M for “Mature” rating that broadly warns of not just any of the usual violence that we’re used to dealing with, but intense violence. It was given a Mature rating due to strong language, blood (and lots of it), and surprisingly, drugs. A fictional drug called Spice is “prevalent” throughout the game; You will encounter bags of the drug, drug labs, and all sorts of drug-making paraphernalia. If that wasn’t enough, words like “Drug Kitchen” will be written on some walls throughout Washington D.C.
What lies ahead for this franchise campaign?
The fun does not stop when you reach the level cap. At the end of the campaign, players choose one of three classes which then unlock new weapons, mods, skills, and perks for you to play with. Each one will have a signature weapon associated with them. These classes are not fixed, so you’ll be able to switch from one to another if you want to play a different style. Progress for each one is also saved to that character. There are three “Specializations” to choose from: The Sharpshooter, The Demolitionist, and The Survivalist.
The Sharpshooter has a powerful .50 caliber sniper rifle and a set of tool mods and a skills tree that allows the character to change the tide of a fight even from afar. The Demolitionist unlocks a destructive grenade launcher and has tools and skills that disrupt the enemy’s plans and entrench their positions. And finally, The Survivalist has a crossbow that fires explosive bots, along with tools and skills that leave enemies little to no chance of recovering once they’re hit.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a shooter RPG with campaign, co-op and PvP mode that offers more variety in terms of missions and challenges. It’s for people who want to team up with their friends and enjoy the serious vibes of a competitive FPS game; it’s also for people who enjoyed the first game, of course. However, if your knees go weak at the sight of blood or intense violence, then we suggest you look elsewhere. You can get the game on the PS4, Xbox One, or PC through the Epic Game Store or Ubisoft’s own online storefront.
