Details on factions, strongholds, World Tiers, and a lot more.
Ubisoft recently held a “State of the Game” livestream for their upcoming looter shooter The Division 2, during which they took a deep dive into what we can expect from the endgame content on offer when the game launches. Tons of new details were revealed on factions, World Tiers, strongholds, and a lot more.
True to Ubisoft’s word, it really does seem like The Division 2’s endgame is going to be a proper extension of the main campaign itself- which promises to be roughly 40 hours long. That means that the factions mechanic of the game, which will see a dynamic world changing based on power struggles and shifting battle lines among these factions, will be seen during the endgame too.
The faction the endgame will be focusing on, though, will be the Black Tusks, who will invade the map once you’ve hit level 30 and finished a particular stronghold. The endgame loop will essentially involving beating story missions that have been invaded by this new faction, with these missions coming in multiple progressive difficulties. There’s also going to be specific strongholds – which are plot missions and areas that present more challenges – over 50 names bosses, and daily and weekly missions and assignments. Completing these allows you to raise your World Tier level, which progressively get tougher and provide better loot.
There’s many more details in the livestream, so be sure to take a look below. It really is looking like The Division 2 is launching with a bevy of content, especially in the endgame, which is a rarity in and of itself for live service games- at least at launch. It’ll be interesting to see how the final product shapes up- we don’t have to wait long to find out either way. The Division 2 launches on March 15 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
