The Division 2 endgame is being completely transformed for the better

If The Division 2 entering its sixth year of content, Ubisoft is giving the endgame a major shake-up. Currently, much of the content is only available after reaching level 40, and to players who have purchased the DLC. But there will be plenty more coming to the co-op shooter and base game players for free in the future. Oh, and if you’re completely new to The Division 2, you can now play the game for eight hours for free and see if it’s for you.

With The Division 2’s Roadmap for Year 6 laid out at the recent Ubisoft Forward, the online shooter is revamping its entire endgame. Tuesday, June 11 marks the start of Year 6 Season 1, with Ubisoft making one message loud and clear: it “will make the endgame accessible to all players of The Division 2.”

Previously, endgame content was available once you reached level 40, which required the Warlords of New York expansion. Now any player can reach level 40 without purchasing the DLC, with a plethora of content becoming available when you reach that goal. This is an incredibly smart move for the co-op game, as it’s based on over half a decade of content. Hopefully this change will help repopulate all endgame activities.

Now everyone can play the Incursions, Manhunts, Countdowns and Raids, and all events will be available to everyone. The new First Rogue Manhunt from Year 6 Season 1 and the new Paradise Lost Incursion will also be available to everyone.

Please note that the Warlords of New York’s new region, unique gear, and story content are all still behind the purchase of the DLC. Ubisoft also believes this should help with overall queues, as it explains the reasons for the change in the following statement.

“This change will benefit all players and level the playing field in terms of access to content. Players who did not own Warlords of New York can now experience and enjoy the real endgame, while those already there will witness the matchmaking queues filling up with new players and a new life that will enhance the social aspects takes over the game.

For old players, Ubisoft says that the current seasonal model, which started in 2020, has “reached its limit” because “it has become a little more difficult to bring novelties and surprises.” This means the model will change, and seasonal characters are at the heart of this shift. This means that each season will be played from level one, with new and accelerated progression to take you to the endgame content while drip-feeding the new mechanics.

Potential new players can now also try The Division 2 for free on PC and consoles. Just go here and choose your platform. You get eight hours and can progress to level eight while playing solo or in co-op.
