Warlords of New York Season 2

Ubisoft has announced that Title Update 10, a major update for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, will start unrolling on June 16 and include massive improvements and fixes. Plus, on June 23, The Division 2:  Warlords of New York Season 2 will be available, bringing even more endgame content to players, as well as the much anticipated Second Raid.

In advance of Warlords of New York Season 2, core changes and improved balancing will be introduced to the game. These changes were tested on the game’s Public Test Server, which gathered feedback from players, allowing developers to fine-tune gameplay and deliver on community requested improvements in key areas.

These areas include the following Player Power, Loot Generosity, and Fixes and Balancing. In the first area, players will see increased damage for nearly all weapons, including exotics, gearset improvements, and brand se improvements. As for Loot Generosity, the overall quality of the loot will be increased and loot quality scaling with difficulty, quality of crafted items, and vendor stocks will all be improved. Finally, in the area of Fixes and Balancing, there will be a major balancing pass and large amounts of bug fixes.

On June 23, the second season of progressive endgame content will launch. Seasons are part of the Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: Warlords of New York expansion and are a series of three-month long narrative-driven mini-campaigns. In Season 2, entitled “Keener’s Legacy,” Division Agents are tasked to take on a new rogue cell and stop them from continuing the plan left by Aaron Keener. Players must own the Warlords of New York expansion in order to participate in the season.

Like Season 1, Season 2 will give players the chance to unlock unique rewards, including two new exotics, a skill variant, and a gearset. Players with the Warlords of New York expansion can play Season 2 for free and can purchase a Season 2 Pass to earn additional rewards for their progression. The Pass also offers more opportunities to unlock Season specific gear and exclusive vanity items, such as a unique Season outfit. Players have until June 15 to complete Season 1 before Season 2 kicks off on June 23.

Other in-game activities will continue in Season 2 as well, including Leagues, which are a series of challenges for players with opportunities to unlock rewards based on players’ ability to complete challenges, and Global Events, which are time-limited in-game events during which a global modifier is applied to the entire game and players will be rewarded for completing specific tasks. During each Season, players will grow their Season level to unlock various rewards by participating in seasonal activities and playing the game.

Additionally, in the Second Raid, players will face a new challenge that teams of eight must work together to overcome. Exclusive rewards will be available for both Level 30 and Level 40 players as they tackle the most challenging mission in the game thus far. The release date of the Second Raid will be revealed in the near future.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is available on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Stadia. For more information on The Division 2: Warlords of New York Season 2, visit the official website.
