    Seven months have passed since a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the population. When the virus hit, The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, was activated as the last line of defense. Since then, Division agents have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains.
    For The Division, the stakes are higher than ever. Washington, D.C. - the most heavily protected city on earth - is at risk, leaving the entire nation on the brink of collapse. If Washington, D.C., is lost, then the nation falls. As a Division agent who has been in the field for seven months, you and your team are the last hope to stop the fall of society after the pandemic collapse.
    Developed by Ubisoft Massive and the same teams that brought you Tom Clancy’s The Division®, Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2 is an online open world, action shooter RPG experience set in a collapsing and fractured Washington, D.C. This rich new setting combines a wide variety of beautiful, iconic, and realistic environments where the player will experience the series’ trademark for authenticity in world building, rich RPG systems, and fast-paced action like never before. Play solo or co-op with a team of up to four players to complete a wide range of activities, from the main campaign and adversarial PvP matches to the Dark Zone - where anything can happen.
    In the wake of the virus, storms, flooding, and subsequent chaos have radically transformed Washington, D.C. Explore a living open world full of diverse environments, from flooded urban areas to historic sites and landmarks, during one of the hottest summers in history. The streets have been overrun with enemy factions, each with its own agenda and each vying for control of DC. It will be up to you to liberate the city and protect what remains of society.
    Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was built with an “endgame-first” mentality, ensuring players always have access to fresh, unique, and diverse activities long after completing the main campaign. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2’s endgame will introduce brand new challenges and progression systems, unique twists and surprises, and for the first time, raids. Players will also be able to access a wealth of post-launch content, including a full year of free additional story-driven missions, map expansions, and gameplay modes.
    After completing the main campaign, gain access to new specializations such as demolitionist, sharpshooter, and survivalist. Each specialization will open up an entire new progression system with new skills, mods, and unique talents to acquire and maximize your agent efficiency in your chosen role.
    Civilians and enemy factions are constantly striving to survive, vying for necessities such as food, medicine, and ammunition. As the factions face off against each other in a ravaged DC, they will fight to seize control of resources and locations - and for their very survival. The various needs and motivations from each faction will collide, triggering different encounters between enemy and friendly factions, civilians, and ultimately you as an Agent, creating a dynamic living world full of surprises.
    Civilians have banded together in settlements to rebuild their society, but their very existence is threatened. Work closely with them to keep them safe and in turn, they will come to your aid and provide supplies and assistance to build up your base of operations, giving a deeper meaning to the people and the world around you.
    The Dark Zone is an untamed area of the map with some of the best loot in the game. The Dark Zone is also the most dangerous area in the game, where fear, betrayal, and tension are high, as any other agent can turn against you and steal your hard-earned loot. In Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, this playground was designed to provide a fair and exciting experience to all players, regardless of their level of progression.

    raid needs matchmaking, it takes to long to finish for casual players, exotic drop is low you dont even get a exotic when you finish it. change your view most of the players are casual, we have work and family to balance.

    People make me laugh. I was upset about the raid, but then i realized its just a game , and i could really give a fuckless. People need to realize that some game activities are for people that have no life and do nothing but play games. Its pay to win but instead of money its time you invest, and some are not as rich as others.

(it's a 5.11 Tactical backpack) Any clue why this was done or is it a bug?

    I want my mother fucking money back after Ubishit lied and said matchmaking for everything and then the raid drops and there is none!! All to promote the game by you tubers and streamers. The rest of us got F-ed in the A!! because how bad would it look if 8 randoms beat it before the "cool kids" did??!! All they do is make the same videos over and over and over just add a Zero to the Best damage ever build, most of these twats are on PC and most of us are on console and we get F-ed in the A for that as well!! We will not forget this, how long can a handful of privileged streaming twats keep you afloat when the rest of us jump ship???

    How to get raid ready...Step number 1: dont tell people that there wont be matchmaking making most of them to prepare in vain for the raid ...step 2: expect the people to have 7 friends playing the game up to 5+ hours at a time and finally step 3: Expect the people to use outside sources for forming a raid in year 2019 because ubisoft cant be bothered to make a working matchmaking tool within the game itself.

    I hated destiny 2 for not having raid matchmaking and forced you to use third party sites and such. I was so glad division 2 was going to have raid matchmaking and now they don't add it wtf. I don't mind going with random people. Or at least give us a tool in game to make groups for raids where people could apply for a group when browsing a list with raid groups like something they have in wow mythic raiding.

  • John E Memphis (Newfoundland Hip Hop)

    It's funny massive said the raid wasnt for everyone but when they were selling year one passes they invited everyone. No matchmaking? No chance to even try? Kinda feels like getting ripped off by a drug dealer. By the time the next two updates come the game will less popular and my pass will be near expiration. Buy the game yes but I don't recommend the pass. I still haven't had a chance to play the raid. I tried to find a team but I'm in my thrirties man it's embarrassing to recruit a team of eight players with awesome builds and ten hours to spare and season passes. I don't even want my friends knowing I'm a Good player lol

  • Gideo Vamers

  • Jesse Enrique
    Jesse Enrique 28 days ago

    This is stupidly over simplified. You completely forgot about RNG sitting on top of RNG on top of RNG. You have to build a powerful dps set which I still don’t have done and been playing since day 1. I’m up to maybe 800k dps while you tubers sitting at 3 mil dps. A piece has to drop with right roll (RNG one) on right brand set (RNG two) at GS 500 (RNG three) since after being gs 499 forever I still keep getting yellows as low as 494. Please don’t make it sound like this shits for everyone bc it’s not even close. And I’m ok with that but’s not.

    You dont need to be wearing the gear to make it relavent to the gear score of gear you obtain. It just needs to be in your inventory or stash. Should make that more apparent to players. EDIT to all you fools wanting matchmaking for this raid. You are going to die. lol You will get half a team at least, that will be clueless and you do not want this.

    But getting to 500 isn't the important part. What matters is your stats, attributes, talents and synergy.
    I can be 496gs with a really optimised build that compliments itself really well. With that, I'm far more helpful and deadly than a 500gs build that's a complete mess.
    You need to educate the audience that the gear score isn't what matters.

  • egshane

    overall gear score of 490, or the loadout? I have a loadout with 500, but another with 489. can i switch my loadout when i get into the raid?

  • Cassie Spencer
    Cassie Spencer 29 days ago

    Having completed it I can see why they don't have matchmaking. At least not yet. I say that because communications are a must. And with randoms you often get those who don't have a mic or have some other excuse as to why they're not on comms. For these reasons Destiny raids for example don't have matchmaking either. I play with randoms every day in D2. And for the most part everything works out fine. Generally speaking, most people know what to do and know the maps inside out, which is awesome.
    That said, the raid is on an entirely different level. It requires planning and teamwork beyond anything in the game thus far. You have to be able to adapt and change tactics and even weapons on the fly. Hence, communications are crucial. For example, one has to be able to ask questions or explain things, as need be. Anyway, that's just my opinion.

    my congratulations Ubisoft / Massive just removed the division 2 of my HD, I waited until today for an update that made me cling to the game, I joined the division 1 but it did not happen, it was disappointment after disappointment, they could not hit neither the PVP of the game (worst pvp I have ever seen) I bought the ultimate edition and it was the biggest bullshit I ever did, I already got all the masks of the game and even that is inferior to the previous game! were your trainees who developed the game ?? It would be better to upgrade the division 1 by leaving friendly fire active and buffing the MP7, MP5 and MP5 ST (taking a little focus from the house), could raise the map too, put Central Park with new legendary missions and more hunters, weapons like M416, HK416, AN94 and MTAR (already it would be a great novelty) in short, this is my outburst and my hopes for the franchise that I liked and played for a long time ....
