Ever since the events of the first Division game wrapped up, players have been left with one lingering plot hole: the plan and fate of rogue agent and all-around bad guy Aaron Keener. When The Division 2 was released, Keener's schemes were left relatively unmentioned, outside of the occasional audio file taunting players, but Warlords of New York solves this problem by dropping players back into the hunt for Keener and the restoration of the city. There's one catch though: Once you start the expansion, there's no going back to D.C. until the new campaign is complete. The campaign has a fair bit of content to it, but realistically can be completed in about six to eight hours, depending on how you play. From a story perspective, it wraps up the Keener plot thread well while giving a few new twists to the overall narrative. But from a gameplay perspective, it's basically just a way to get a few new skills and to bump up from level 30 to the new level cap of 40.

The Warlords of New York expansion also takes the opportunity to tweak more of how the game handles its statistics and character leveling. The previously confusing mix of various gear statistics has been streamlined into a much more manageable presentation. Players can quickly see exactly what sort of damage, armor, etc., that new gear adds to their character, along with simple notifications of improvements. Crafting has been improved as well, giving players boosts to their overall stats without going through convoluted number crunching. Instead, it's much easier to build a character customized to whatever style of play you prefer. It all makes for the best version of The Division 2 to date, with a solid foundation for future improvements via the new seasonal content. And with more story yet to come, agents can look forward to staying activated for some time to come.
