Season 2 of The Division 2 Warlords of New York expansion has begun, and is based on a new human hunt. You’re tracking another group of five Rebel Division agents, and to track them down, you’ll need to enter the game during limited-time special events for the next 12 weeks.
This season is called Keener’s Legacy, and it’s about finding the people who want to take on the mantle of Aaron Keener, a ‘First Wave’ agent who rejected the Division in the first game. He’s been a couple of steps ahead of players ever since, or at least until he was in the crosshairs during Warlords of New York. Since the launch of the expansion, Division agents have been tracking him through southern Manhattan neighborhoods.
With Keener out of the picture, new corrupt agents have moved in, this group led by another rogue First Waver named Carter ‘Hornet’ Leroux. He was the head of the Russian Consulate mission in the First Division, and now he’s back, and presumably he’s bringing with him the hacking skills of his gamer skills.
Here is the trailer.
While Hornet is your main objective this season, you will first have to go through his lieutenants. During this season, you will need to get closer to these goals as they become available. The first, Termite, appeared today with the launch of the new season. Luna is next, appearing on July 14. Huntsman follows him on August 4, and Titan will arrive on August 25.
Those dates also coincide with other limited-time events in The Division 2. Each will arrive alongside a new competitive League and a new Global Event, and Luna’s appearance will also be the start of a new ‘Phoenix Down’ dress event. That will run from July 14 to August. 4)
As you progress through the ranks this season, you can earn tons of new rewards. There’s a new skill, called Repair Trap, the new Exotic Mantis Shooter Rifle, the Exotic Vile Mask (which looks great as hell), a new Eclipse Protocol outfit kit, an Eclipse set, a brand new set equipment and much more.
You can read more on the game’s official site. Season 2 also announces the arrival of a ton of fixes and rebalances, including a review of how often you’ll see the rarest loot in the game.
