The Division 2 returns to New York with its latest expansion
Ubisoft has announced Warlords of New York, a major expansion coming to The Division 2 across PS4, Xbox One and PC this March.
Arriving across all platforms on March 3rd, Warlords of New York will see players return to The Big Apple for the first time since the original game, leaving the patriotic streets of Washington D.C. behind for something even more ambitious.
Returning to your old stomping ground will serve as an opportunity to conclude narrative loose ends from the first entry as you and a group of friends seek to take down Division Agent Aaron Keener and his four lieutenants.
Taking place across the hurricane-ravaged streets of Lower Manhattan, players will explore 1:1 recreations of places including Battery Park, Chinatown and Wall Street. If you’re familiar with the city, this should be a fun little reminder of reality, except with far more guns and explosions than usual.

Aside from a bunch of new story missions and narrative additions, Warlords of New York will introduce an increased level cap of 40 alongside a bunch of new gear, weapons and skills to unlock for your Division Agent.
An infinite progression system will also be introduced in the form of an ‘SHD Level’ which will be accompanied by an expanded endgame vision that will incorporate three month seasons with a variety of new things for you to pursue and unlock.
The overall RPG system will also be overhauled, allowing players to more easily compare and analyse gear. Dark Zones have also been reworked in a way that is hopefully more rewarding for players sticking with The Division 2.
Warlord of New York will be priced at £25.99, meaning it’s set to be a hefty expansion compared to all of the updates we’ve seen thus far. It can also be purchased as part of a newly introduced Standard or Ultimate Editions of the game.
