Η Ubisoft ανακοίνωσε την επίσημη ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας για το πρώτο επεισόδιο/ενημέρωση περιεχομένου του Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Με τίτλο Episode 1 – D.C. Outskirts: Expedition οι παίκτες καλούνται να εξερευνήσουν νέες περιοχές, να αντιμετωπίσουν νέες απειλές, και να ξεκλειδώσουν νέο εξοπλισμό και όπλα.

Το Episode 1 – D.C. Outskirts: Expedition είναι κομμάτι του Year 1 Free Content Plan, και μεταφέρει την μάχη έξω από τις γειτονιές της Washington D.C. Το επεισόδιο περιλαμβάνει νέες τοποθεσίες προς εξερεύνηση και συνεχίζει την ιστορία μετά την τελική μάχη του Tidal Basin. Θα βρεθούμε στις γύρω περιοχές της Washington D.C. για να λάβουμε μέρος σε δύο νέες βασικές αποστολές για να εξερευνήσουμε την μοίρα ενός χαμένου Convoy και να αντιμετωπίσουμε νέες απειλές.

Το περιεχόμενο του Episode 1 θα έχει τα εξής:

  • Two New Main Missions
    • Camp White Oak: Division Agents stage a well-planned attack into the presidential compound, as they seek to bring the now-traitor President Andrew Ellis to justice.
    • Manning National Zoo: Emeline Shaw, leader of the Outcasts, fled after her defeat in D.C. and is now held up at the Zoo regaining strength. Agents are on the hunt to eliminate Shaw, nipping the Outcasts’ reawakening in the bud.

 

  • New experience: Expeditions
    • In this new experience, players enter Kenly College, where contact has been lost with a military convoy full of vital supplies. When they receive what appears to be a final broadcast, they form an expedition to find any surviving members in need of rescue. Expeditions will be split in three different wings for players to complete. Each wing will have a specific theme and tone, to be released on a week-by-week basis. Completing all three wings grants access to an exclusive treasure room full of rewards.

 

  • New Weapons and Gear: Players can obtain:
    • One exotic weapon: Diamondback Rifle
    • One exotic gear: BTSU Datagloves
    • Two weapons: Stoner LMG and Carbine 7
  • Classified Assignments: Agents can take on two new classified assignments in Washington’s Central Aquarium and NSA Site B13 (Exclusive only to Year 1 Pass holders).

Επιπλέον, μαζί με το νέο περιεχόμενο, το Episode 1 θα φέρει τις εξής αλλαγές:

  • New Discovery Difficulty setting for the «Operation Dark Hours» Raid
    • The new Discovery Difficulty setting, along with its corresponding matchmaking option, will allow more players to experience The Division 2 in its entirety. While Operation Dark Hours Exotic loot remains exclusive to the Normal difficulty setting, Agents playing the Discovery Difficulty can expect a variety of great rewards, while training for the Normal Difficulty.
  • Crafting improvements
  • Players can now craft their gear up until Gear Score 500 and share blueprints across characters. Additionally, crafted weapons can now be recalibrated.
  • Weapons balancing and skills buff
    • As part of the ongoing updates to answer community feedback, awaited balance and buffs will be added to the next title update.

Το Episode 1 – D.C. Outskirts: Expedition αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στις 30 Ιουλίου για όλους τους παίκτες, και 7 ημέρες νωρίτερα για τους κατόχους του Year 1 Pass.
