Ubisoft Reveals The Division’s Year 2 Content

Ubisoft has revealed their plans for the second year of The Division. The Division’s year two content includes two free expansion and a new loadout feature.

“The one-year anniversary is a celebration of everything we’ve done in the first year of the game’s release,” creative director Julian Gerighty said. “But we also want to turn ahead and look at Year 2 and how we’re going to support the game for everyone, for free.”

The first of The Division’s year two expansions to be rolled out is a new event system that “drives players to activities that feature modifiers, leaderboards, and unique vanity items.” However, they didn’t have much to say on the on the second expansion, only saying it will be “more content-focused.”

Year two will also include the new loadout feature. This will allow players to choose and switch between their favorite weapons. There will also be a new system to keep track of your feats. However, it doesn’t seem like the second year will feature any story missions.

“Story missions are tricky, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have narrative content,” Gerighty explained. “We can’t really deliver story missions that will fit into the RPG aspects of the game in a simple way. So we’re not going to be doing the classic main mission type of thing, but narrative content is something that we are definitely looking at.”

It also seems like additional levels or new areas. While it is a possibility Ubisoft mentioned that “the focus for Year 2 remains on what they can deliver to the largest player base.”

“That means [Year 2 content] won’t be paid-for DLC. These won’t be paid expansions,” he added. “[This content will put a twist] on how people played the game before and reignite their engagement with the content. You may have already played in one style, but transforming that and then applying a competition filter is a very engaging way to deliver new experiences and new activities to the community.”
