The Division 2 official launch trailer focuses on combat

The Division 2 debuts an action-packed new launch trailer with a focus on combat.


Ready for another dose of Tom Clancy's The Division 2? How about a launch trailer? The game's getting ready to drop in a couple of weeks, and you can get a glimpse of it with this new clip that cobbles some of the most interesting bits together.

The action-packed clip certainly makes it look like The Division 2 is going to be absolute chock-full of moments that take your breath away and get your heart pumping. Of course, that's the point of advertising, but this clip definitely does its job well. 

"We used to be ordinary people with ordinary lives, trained in secret. Only to be activated if the worst happened. Seven months ago, that day came." says the unknown narrator as the trailer tells the story of a virus tearing the country apart. When Washington began to fall as a result, and the leaders began to go dead and missing, that's when "dark forces" decided to take control of the nation.

That's where you come in, as part of The Division, or the "last line of defense." The trailer stresses that you're the last people in the country who are able to "make a stand" and unite DC to grow toward some sort of semblance of cohesion as a country once more.

"We are The Division, and history will remember us," says a defiant voice near the end of the clip. It's certainly convincing. If you weren't on board before, you'll definitely be now.
