The Division 2 has finally made its full debut on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
A follow-up to the 2016 game set in New York, The Division 2 shifts the action to Washington DC.
“Seven months have passed since a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the world population,” reads an Ubisoft post.
“Society as we know it has collapsed. When the virus hit, The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, was activated as the last line of defence. Since then, they have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains, and keep our civilisation from falling into chaos.
“Washington D.C. was supposed to be the last city to stand against total collapse of the nation, but faced with multiple threats, the city is on the brink.
“For The Division, the stakes are higher than ever – if Washington D.C. falls, the nation falls. Empowered as modern-day civilian marshals, you and your team are the last hope to stop the fall of society after the pandemic collapse.”
And the good news for fans of the original is that the early reviews have been extremely positive.
In Destructroid’s excellent review in progress, the writer describes The Division 2 as a polished shooter with lots to do.
The Metro review in progress calls the game “straightforward, predictable, and from what we can tell at the moment sensibly balanced”.
“‘Encouraging’ is generally how I feel about The Division 2 at this point in time,” reads the Gamespot review.
“It’s got a fantastic sense of place and progression, and the combat scenarios and skills continue to be interesting.
“There’s a lot of love, especially among the minor improvements – the small design decisions that make the act of finding and equipping loot so snappy and convenient, or the smart integration of per-mission multiplayer matchmaking that even lets you call upon other players in the middle of a mission.”
Early impressions have also been positive on Twitter, as users praise the opening moments and level of detail.
