The 10th season of content is live right now for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, continuing the NY-based story, as well as serving plenty of new gear.
(*Bale voice*) Where is he?!
Still very much rolling into its 4th year, even with all of the new announcements, is The Division 2. Ubisoft’s post-apocalyptic, sorta-multiplayer action title is entering its 10th overall season of content, and continuing the tale of Warlords of NY.
A massive expansion for the original sequel, Warlords of NY took the action back to where it all began for The Division, and loaded up a huge new storyline. That story is evolving of course, and now moves on from villain Antwon Ridgeway to new heavy General Peter Anderson. Seems Anderson is taking command of the True Sons with Ridgeway out of the picture, and he’s setting his sights on The Division.
The new season follows the story of the latest target to track down – General Peter Anderson. Hungry for power, and with the True Sons looking for direction after the fall of Antwon Ridgeway, Anderson sees an opportunity to build a new team and take down The Division. Anderson is brokering a peace with the Black Tusk and The Division must find and neutralize Black Tusk Founder Natalya Sokolova’s advanced team (Trig, Micro, Chirpy and Lucky) in order to locate and take down Anderson. Season 10 is the second of three seasons for Year 4 of the Division.Ubisoft press release
