The Division 2 will introduce a new feature that allows players to create and manage clans in-game.
Players will be able to create their own clan after progressing far enough in the game’s story, but a total of four players are required to do so. According to Ubisoft, up to 50 accounts can join the clan, with a total of four characters each, and each clan will have access to two voice channels that can hold up to 25 players each.
When creating a clan, players will be able to design an insignia, choose a clan name that is between four and 15 letters long, set a three-letter clan tag, and write an introduction. In addition, clans have three privacy levels (open, invite only, and private) and the following four ranks to assign to players:
- Commander – The leader of the clan which has access to all administrative functions of the clan.
- Lieutenant – The officer rank, which will be able to send out invites, review applications, promote and demote members as well as moderate the clan feed.
- Agent – The established clan member able to invite potential recruits to the clan.
- Recruit – The recruit is a new member of the clan with limited access to administrative clan functionality.
Clans also come with their own form of progression in The Division 2 thanks to the introduction of Clan XP. All in-game actions taken by clan members will reward Clan XP, which is used to increase the clan’s level up to a limit of 30 and unlock additional customization options for the insignia.
As well as Clan XP, there are weekly projects to complete and an upgradeable clan cache to earn. Clan projects grant additional Clan XP upon completion, with a significant amount of Clan XP being rewarded for completing them all. While the clan cache requires players to earn a certain amount of Clan XP to obtain it.
“There are 3 tiers of reward – bronze, silver and gold. Reaching the bronze tier will unlock guaranteed rewards, while reaching the silver and gold tiers will further improve the week’s rewards each time,” Ubisoft explains.
Finally, each clan will get its own clan quarters in the East Wing of the White House, which will give clan members a place to socialize, collect rewards, and access the clan vendor. As the clan’s level increases, the quality of items offered by the clan vendor will improve.
The Division 2 officially launches March 15th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. However, those who can’t wait that long can hop into the game this weekend when the open beta goes live.
