In Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, you will join The Division again on a new mission, this time in Washington DC. Here is our full Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Review.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is developed and published by Ubisoft. It was released on March 1, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
In Division 2 we go back to the division group that gets a new mission. Save the white house and take back Washington DC and remove the people trying to take down the new civilizations that have been building up since the virus started. The story other than that is honestly not extremely interesting and I felt like the majority kinda got locked behind side objectives while listening to the radio person trying to fill you in on stuff and send you to the next objectives.
Where the game really shines it’s its sceneries and gameplay, both have plenty to offer in this game due to the variety of locations and missions you get subjected to. During the story, you will go from district to district doing various main missions and side-missions, during the walk you will probably come across a few different side-objectives as well, these are also needed to improve your new settlements with the projects system. This system uses a few different things but will give you some great rewards like powerful blueprints and exp.
The gear system is something they made simpler but also harder to understand, depending on how much you want to get into it, the guns feel great when shooting and when you rip up the enemies… if you get a good weapon at least. If you don’t have that, the game can be very frustrating. Something else that is extremely frustrating is the damage you receive, this was something that just ended the gaming session on multiple occasions not wanting to continue. Out of nowhere enemies seem to just obliterate your health without a chance to get cover or to recover when you have taken some damage. Unlike the 1st game, The Division 2 seems to have put the focus more on the strategic element of the game and having to hide behind cover throughout most of the game.
The Main missions all have some amazing set pieces like the lincoln statue, some museums, and underground systems that have had seen a better time, destroyed by the enemy factions that have taken over these locations and made it their own, but also nature that have had some time to take back some of the lands. There are a lot of different types of locations, but non really seems to be like new york’s skyscrapers and parking garages which made that game a bit boring at times. In DC, there are some parks, residential areas, and shopping areas but also an underground system that all get explored during your adventure in DC.
The game has a lot more green to it, something that made it a lot harder at times due to enemies that just camouflaged better in it, but also due to enemies having more places to cover like behind trees or to just run away behind bushes. Sadly you can’t really shoot through anything, even with an LMG, something that got pretty frustrating at times because it would literally sometimes take a full minute for an enemy to show its face when you were waiting to pop one in the head.
The holds up really well, even 4 years after its launch and it even still gets regular updates and it still gets content season with season 11 just having launched at the time of writing. So until a new division game launches it will be worth picking this one up because its been pretty cheap on sales for the past year and if you play with a friend it will become a lot more fun.
