The Division 2 Warlords of New York Expansion launches March 3

By Sean Carey,
A new narrative-driven expansion that sees players journey to a devastated open world of South Manhatten launches on March 3 for Tom Clancy's The Division 2. Players will embark on a manhunt for a former Division Agent in the Warlords of New York DLC.


Players are on the hunt for former Division Agent, Aaron Keener. Keener has gone rogue and along with a network of other rogue agents, is a threat to the rebirth of civilisation. Players will need to traverse the open world of Lower Manhattan; a former Dark Zone that was recently devastated by a hurricane. New zones featuring iconic locations such as Two Bridges, Wall Street and Chinatown are all open to explore on your mission to find Keener. However, to get to Keener, players must eliminate four of his Rogue Agents, each with their own back story and skill. Players will gain that unique skill once you've taken an individual Rogue Agent down.

With the expansion, the level cap will increase from level 30 to 40, and a new infinite progression system the "SHD" level is to be introduced alongside four new skills new weapons, gear and exotic items.

Coming alongside the Warlords of New York expansion is a new title update that makes several changes. According to a press release from Ubisoft, it has been, "taking the time to hear and gather community feedback" and has made numerous enhancements in key areas. Players will now be able to better read and manage their gear, while the UI screen is being updated to always show roll ranges for each stat on a weapon or piece of gear. God rolls are making a comeback, improving readability, allowing players to make more informed decisions on gear choice when it comes to their build. At the Recalibration Station, a more streamlined system is being introduced along with item and state usefulness indicators.

All existing Dark Zones in The Division 2 are being revamped returning them to a "simpler rogue mechanic." The focus has now shifted towards rewarding player to player interaction, "whether it's fighting against each other or helping a fellow Agent against a tough Rogue player."

Seasons are also being introduced into The Division 2 — a three-month-long endgame event that brings a new primary target and a network to track down and eliminate. These events will be added at regular intervals and will feature their own stories and unique rewards. The first season will start one week after the release of the Warlords of New York expansion. Leagues are also making their way to The Division 2 and are a series of challenges that gives players the opportunity to unlock certain rewards, while Global Events are to be re-introduced which offers up time-limited in-game events. During a Season, players will rank up their Season Level to unlock various rewards by simply playing the game or taking part in seasonal activities.
