Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is an online open world looter shooter set seven months after a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the population. The Division 2 is set in post-pandemic Washington D.C. where a unit of highly trained civilian sleeper agents known as the Division, has been tasked with preventing the fall of D.C. – and the country. Since then, Division agents have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains. This rich new setting combines a wide variety of beautiful, iconic, and realistic environments where the player will experience the series’ trademark for authenticity in world building, rich RPG systems, and fast-paced action like never before. Play solo or co-op with a team of up to four players to complete a wide range of activities, from the main campaign and adversarial PvP matches to the Dark Zone – where anything can happen.
