First Animated Short Film for The Division 2 Warlords of New York Released

Next week, the highly-anticipated expansion for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: Warlords of New York will release. Before March 3rd gets here, though, Ubisoft decided to drop an animated short film of the expansion to give players a little backstory.

The beautifully animated short highlights key members of the upcoming expansion, including former Division agent and leader of the rogue faction Aaron Keener. Check it out!

The animated short depicts how former Division Agent Aaron Keener, who has now turned rogue, manipulates his 4 lieutenants into taking control of Lower Manhattan, putting his plans in motion. Players will discover more about the main targets they must track down in their manhunt for Keener. Among Keener’s rogue lieutenants are chemical engineer Vivian Conley, who has aligned herself with the Cleaners faction, and former drone engineer and hacker Theo Parnell. Then there’s Javier Kajika, a former Black Op on a path for revenge, and James Dragov, master of heavy weapons who is now leading the iconic Rikers faction. All will prove to be merciless opponents to the agents of The Division venturing in Lower Manhattan.

Ahead of the expansion’s release, Ubisoft is gifting players with a Division 2 free weekend. From February 27 to March 2, gamers who haven’t had a chance to experience The Division 2 can jump into our nation’s capital to help liberate its people. Any progress made will be extended into the game if purchased after the free weekend.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: Warlords of New York releases Tuesday March 3rd, 2020.
