Washington D.C and its White House, its Capitol, its Lincoln Memorial, its obelisk and its millions of casualties killed by a deadly virus... After having saved New York, it's time to help the remaining survivors of the US capital with a method that has proved itself efficient: the killing of even more bad guys in Tom Clancy's The Division 2. Note: We've gathered all our previous videos of the game here but we've also taken the time to prepare a 4K video focused on the game's environments on PC (with max settings obviously).
The Division 2 is a successful sequel in that it has allowed Massive to reach the initial vision they had for their game. It is undeniably immersive, it plays great, it runs well and all its different parts come together perfectly. The gunfights are precise and balanced, exploration is interesting and rewarding in this new vast and varied city and the game's different systems make sure you always have something to do, a new objective to reach, new rewards to get, etc. Even the inevitable micro transactions are elegant enough to stay discrete. That being said, The Division 2 suffers from the limits of its very concept. Its realistic setting is obviously pretty conventional and the gunfights cannot offer that much variety as a result. That's probably why some players will get tired of the game before they have a chance to see all the content it has to offer. Even so, you won't regret your time playing The Division 2, especially if you have a chance to share your experience with friends.
