The Division 2 DLC Plans Will Include New PvP Content
Just last week, Ubisoft revealed that The Division 2 would feature a revamped Dark Zone, one that includes multiple different sections and will feature new gameplay elements not seen in the first game. While the Dark Zone will be available to players when the game launches, The Division 2 developer Red Storm Entertainment has revealed that new PvP game modes will be added to the title after launch.
The news comes by way of an interview between The Koalition and Red Storm Entertainment senior producer Tony Sturtzel, wherein he reveals some of the DLC plans for The Division 2 post-launch. According to Sturtzel, the developer plans on introducing more PvP game modes as free updates, and that the team’s original goal was to “ship this game with a few maps uniquely built for the best PvP experiences.”
Many that have played through The Division know that the Dark Zone is the focal point of the game’s PvP content, and the developer looks to build upon that by introducing more “story-driven missions and map expansions” post-launch. As with thew new PvP modes, the story DLC will be available to players for free, and according to Sturtzel it is part of the teams’ “ongoing commitment to keep our dedicated community energized and playing.”
Without actually verbalizing it as such, it almost seems as if The Division 2 will take a similar approach to the Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey’s DLC roadmap, which offers both meaty story content and what amounts to side-helpings of other miscellaneous content in between. Either way, this simply means that players will have plenty of things to do even after completing whatever story campaign ships with the game when it launches on March 15th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
