E3 2018: The Division 2's Washington DC Detailed In New Gameplay Footage

New gameplay footage of The Division 2's ruined Washington DC was displayed during Microsoft's latest E3 2018 presentation.


Fans of first-person shooters have been given a lot of exciting reveals during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference. In particular, Microsoft and Ubisoft together revealed some all-new gameplay footage for The Division 2, showing off the game's open environments as the hero and his allies try to reclaim the nation's capital city.

The coverage kicked off with the new cinematic trailer featured below, detailing the elaborate backstory behind the fall of the nation:

After that, the coverage jumped straight into some fresh new in-game footage, the likes of which are featured below.

The latest gameplay reveal showcases the sort of high quality visuals that The Division was known for. Things are a lot more open in The Division 2, however, with lush, overgrown forest environments dotted by broken-down cars and other signs of civilizations now lost. Cover and gunplay look to function the same as ever, which is to say very well, with the hero and his allies doing battle with a number of enemies near the ruined fuselage of Air Force One.

The Division 2 is currently slated to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 15, 2019.

      Looks amazing! probably half the size of the current Division Game, but looks a lot more polished.

      Looks like more of the same.Another grind-fest to get gear. The first one was good,for a while,then just like Destiny,extreme boredom and repetition set in. Sorry,but that's just not for me.

      Also, I just don't understand why they didn't keep it in NY. There are four more boroughs to explore.I know we started in Brooklyn (barely) in the first game,but NY is a HUGE city that I feel like they didn't even scratch the surface of.
