At E3 2019, Ubisoft gave more details about its year-one roadmap for The Division 2. The first year of free content updates will include a series of three-story episodes, which will explore more of the Washington DC area and even go back to New York City, the setting for the first Division game.
The first episode, now narrowed from a summer release to July, is called DC Outskirts: Expeditions. It will let you explore the woodlands surrounding DC, including the Washington National Zoo. The mission is to find the leader of the Outcasts, and the new Expeditions mechanic will offer weekly missions to progress through the wings of Trinity College.
The second episode, scheduled for fall, is Pentagon: The Last Castle. You’ll have to defend the Pentagon from Black Tusk and have access to The Division 2’s second 8-player Raid. This one will take place in the middle of an active foundry.

Finally, the third episode is called Coney Island: Homecoming, and will drop in early 2020. It promises a familiar nemesis and a new threat as the agents head back to the source of the outbreak in New York. Each of the packs is said to include new areas, modes, rewards, specializations, exotic gear, and weapons.
Ubisoft will be opening a Division 2 free trial starting June 13, and the game will be on sale through June 24. If you participate in the free weekend and then purchase the full game you’ll keep your progression.
