Ubisoft Reveals More About The Division 2's Gameplay and Story

Ubisoft showed off a snazzy cinematic trailer for their RPG/shooter hybrid Tom Clancy's The Division 2, but now we have more information on the actual gameplay and plot of this online title. Fans of the original Division will be excited to know that the gameplay of this sequel is largely the same, but players will be able to explore the ruins of Washington D.C.. A short story synposis helps get players up to speed:

Set seven months after a deadly virus was released in New York City, The Division 2 raises the stakes for players by launching them into a fractured and collapsing Washington D.C. – built as a one-to-one recreation of the city. In the wake of the virus, storms, flooding and subsequent chaos have radically transformed the city. From flooded urban areas to ravaged historic sites and landmarks, players will plunge into a dynamic open world with a wide variety of environments and biomes. As veteran Division agents, players are the last hope against the complete fall of society as enemy factions vie for control of the city. If Washington DC is lost, the entire nation falls.

We also now have a gameplay trailer to go with the cinematic one we got earlier:

Finally, we have our first set of screenshots for The Dvision 2, which you can check out below:
