The Division 2 Adds Gunner Specialization

Tom Clancy tactical shooter title The Division 2 adds new Gunner specialization within SHD Agents ranks.

Other than mostly being a tactical shooter, The Division 2 has action role-playing aspects and skill system in place for players to focus on. Already three different specializations are deployed so far and the game just added another one.

A fourth Specialist, Gunner is recruited this month as a tank within squad alongside previously added Demolitionist, Sharpshooter and Survivalist class to wreck havoc on the streets of Washington, D.C. and help reclaim it.

Signature weapon for Gunner would be a powerful minigun and receive bonus armor depending on Specialization ammunition amount, when activated. Only downside is Gunner can't go for cover, roll or even vault when drawing weapon.

Though lack of cover would be a disadvantage for any Division agents but that has been compensated with wave of bullets at their disposal. Considered a vanguard for fellow SHD Agents, they have great prominence in both inflicting and sustaining damage.

Gunner has a new skill tree, P320 XCompact sidearm and Banshee Signature Skill to confuse enemies. It will make them coming out of cover and unsettled, only to get blasted into bits or get trapped in place by special Riot Foam grenade.

Unlocking this new specialization class would require players to complete Special Field Research, which are five stages of in-game challenges. Taking on objectives will offer you rewards and allow access of Gunner with newest signature weapon.

The beta aims to introduce players to a shared-world for early gameplay experience and receive community feedback at the same time. Developers have also promised to deliver end-game raids as post-release downloadable content for free.

The Division 2 Will Be on Epic Games Store, Not on Steam

Ubisoft will be releasing the PC version of The Division 2 through Epic Games Store while skipping Steam.

Action role-playing game The Division from developer Massive Entertainment and publisher Ubisoft is returning with an upcoming sequel; The Division 2 that is releasing on March 15, 2019 for major platforms like PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Usually, Valve's digital distribution store Steam offers people to play and purchase PC version of different video games on their platform even if the publisher have an online storefront of their own but Ubisoft is planning to skip them this time for Epic Games Store.

In a way, the game is now semi-exclusive to Epic Games to buy copies for PC version aside from the outlet of the original publisher. This recent partnership between these two companies also heralds the possibilities of multiple other titles heading to the same store.

Steam previously had a featured product page for the title listed on their site, which now simply redirects visitors to the home page since Ubisoft has no current plans with it. Any pre-order made earlier or elsewhere will still be honored though, according to the Official Blog Post.

Epic has managed to secure exclusively for upcoming anticipated titles like Hades from Supergiant Games and The Walking Dead: The Final Season from Skybound Games within only a month after entering the marketplace by launching their game store.

Of course, the 88% revenue split Epic Games are offering has a lot to do with Ubisoft migrating to them but it have the consumers concerned with a lot of issues like lack of local currency support, bad refund policy and no visible user review. Don't believe us? Check out the Twitter thread for yourself.

Several big-name company of the industry like Activision has launched Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on Battle.net exclusively and Bethesda Softworks walked the same way with Fallout 76 through their own launcher, probably to have more control over the distribution.

Place your pre-order now for Standard, Gold or Ultimate editions of The Division 2 on Epic Games Store to secure your access to Private Beta that is coming soon. Both of these companies are seemingly more than confident that moving away from Steam won't hurt the sales.

The Division 2 Announced

Developer Ubisoft's online-only action role-playing game Tom Clancy's The Division came out in 2016 after three years of revealing the title. The game was based on an outbreak in New York City as a group of Strategic Homeland Division agents called The Division gets into the situation to bring order. Recently, Ubisoft has officially announced that a sequel; The Division 2 is currently under development.

This game got some potential and people loved it when it was a brand-new release but that quickly changed when there were almost no post-game content or frequent updates. Within the next few months, The Division saw a huge drop of player count, which is 93 percent in total. This is considerably tragic for a game that broke the record for first-day sales of Ubisoft and was full of promises. The studio then managed to raise the number a little higher with regular updates.

Hopefully, their initial obliviousness had taught Ubisoft to not repeat the mistake of neglecting a franchise post-release and they got back at their feet again. Now they can effectively apply those lessons learned from their past mistakes for course correction as they bring the sequel. A single image of The Division 2's logo was first leaked on Twiiter by Jason Schreier of Kotaku and then the developers officially confirmed the leak after a few hours.



Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is being made by Massive Entertainment and Red Storm Entertainment, collaborating with all the fractions of Ubisoft. Creative director Julian Gerighty of Massive Entertainment states that they always envisioned The Division as part of a larger series and thus comes the sequel. With that being said, we can only guess for a third installment if The Division 2 becomes a successful project.

The developers are going to use an upgraded version of the Snowdrop engine, which was used to create the first game and was unique to it. This is a very good point for the sequel as the impressive graphics and gameplay of the first game was what made it popular. Besides, they have possibly learned a lot from their mistakes and we only hope that they make better use of that learning, which also means more contents and expected updates.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak Details

Though developer Ubisoft has a habit of announcing games too early, we heard that The Division 2 will be fully revealed at E3 2018. On the plus side, they have decided to continue their support for the first game even after the Year 2 Celebration, which includes major initiatives like arranging global events and Xbox One X enhancements. Let's just hope they don't shelve The Division 2 for three years before release like its predecessor.
