None of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2‘s story or endgame content will force players to queue up with other operators, should anyone prefer a more solitary experience.
In a recent interview with AusGamers, game director Mathias Karlson discussed how The Division 2‘s experience caters to all types of players. While the entirety of The Division 2 can be enjoyed in a squad of up to four players, the same content can apparently be played solo. Karlson’s wording makes it sound as though this includes the game’s 8-player raids, but this seems unlikely.
“You can play through the entire story campaign into endgame and [then the] endgame [content], alone,” Karlson said. “[But] you can also do the same content [in] two-, three-, or four-player co-op. Or eight player co-op, two full groups in the raid if you opt into the challenge that we’re adding. So it’s very important for us that you get to pick.”
Assuming the raids will indeed require groups, exclusively solo players will miss out on a handful of adventures. There are several raids launching for the game in its first year, and while the exact number has not yet been confirmed, we predict that one raid will drop with each of the game’s first three DLC chapters, in addition to the first raid coming shortly after launch.
In other The Division 2 news, YouTuber Arekkz has been helpfully breaking down a variety of features fans can expect in the sequel. The YouTuber has a video covering the game’s new Brand sets, as well as one on the changes to weapon modifications coming in the new game.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is slated to launch March 15th, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
