Tom Clancy’s Division 2 fractions
The Hyenas: They are a gang of “opportunistic raiders that prey on struggling civilian encampments through violence and intimidation” (Ubisoft). The loosely organized gang is the first fraction you will encounter in the game, one of the easiest factions to fight against and defeat.
The True Sons: They are “a group of paramilitary warlords bent on using their combat expertise and overwhelming firepower to dominate and expand their territories” (Ubisoft). This group is better organized than the Hyenas as they are smart, organized, and being led by a former JFT officer.
The Outcasts: are “bitter survivors of a forced quarantine bent on revenge against those who brutally imprisoned them and the society [who] stood by and let it happen” (Ubisoft). This fraction’s leader urges her follows, through her charismatic language, to spread their sickness and murder their victims indiscriminately. This means, anyone who is innocent will get infected.
The Black Tusk: This is the last fraction in the roster. The Black Tusk is a “private military organization that operates on an unknown agenda” (Ubisoft). Their military history makes this fraction one of the biggest threats to the Division as they are highly organized and disciplined.
I have thoroughly enjoyed Tom Clancy’s “The Division 2”, although I have only played 2 hours. The initial character creation it has you dive into was the most fun, as it took me an hour to figure out what design I wanted to be stuck with for the rest of my gameplay. The creation had you choose from gender, eye color, hair, hair color, and stuff of that nature. It also allowed you to place scars and blemishes on your character. From the creation screen, the game will drop you into a tutorial of how the mechanics of the game will run. It will show you the basics, from running to shooting, from hiding to throwing grenades – the typical gaming tutorial. Once the tutorial finishes, it throws you into the your main mission: save Washington D.C from falling.
You will get your call to action at the very end of the tutorial as there is a distress signal coming from D.C. Your character gets sent there to help defend the white house from falling to the Hyenas, a gang of opportunistic raiders. They’re an easy takedown, as you can fight them within 6 minutes and get to your goal of the White House. When my character was dropped into the fight, the game did glitch just a tad as it was loading into the map. As my character is checking their “watch” – your main hub for the division – their arm was glitching on the way up, and as they place it down.
Once you’re at the white house, you can upgrade your skills and gear. Once you meet the leader of the white house, Manny Ortega, he gives you your first order: go to the theater and speak with Odessa Sawyer. After fighting your way through some wild gangs of Hyenas, you will make your way to The Theater, your second safe house. Once speaking with Odessa, she tells you. In an effort to gain her trust, you are to go save her daughter (Eleanor) from the Hyenas. You travel to the a hotel to fight Saint, the man responsible for capturing Eleanor. This mission will run about 20 min depending on how you play. Once you and your team take down the Hyenas, you are sent back to tell Odessa about your now completed mission, gaining her trust and a new safe house, as she “always pays [her] debts”.
The game play is smooth, fun, and taxing as I personally love running and gunning, however that will not always work. I found this out the hard way as I would capture areas from the Hyenas in name of the Division, and get utterly “wrecked” as it was 1v10. You do not have to play with others, as this is an online only game, but you can team up with others in the same area to help finish missions.
