The Division 2’s first free episode includes new missions, weapons, and gear

Ubisoft has detailed the release of D.C. Outskirts: Expeditions, its first free episode for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.

Episode 1 – D.C. Outskirts: Expeditions “takes players to the surrounding areas of Washington D.C. in two new main missions and a new game experience where players will investigate the fate of a lost convoy, encountering unexpected threats along the way.”

Players can look forward to two new missions in Episode 1 – D.C. Outskirts: Expeditions. The first, Camp White Oak, has Division Agents stage a well-planned attack into the presidential compound, as they seek to bring the now-traitor President Andrew Ellis to justice.

The second mission takes places at the National Zoo. According to Ubisoft, “Emeline Shaw, leader of the Outcasts, fled after her defeat in D.C. and is now held up at the Zoo regaining strength. Agents are on the hunt to eliminate Shaw, nipping the Outcasts’ reawakening in the bud.”

Players will also obtain one exotic weapon (Diamondback Rifle), one exotic gear (BTSU Datagloves), and two weapons (Stoner LMG and Carbine 7).

The first episode will be released one week early – on July 23 – for Year 1 Pass holders. All players will gain access on July 30. There are two more free episodes planned for this year.
