We're back with the Intelligence Annex to introduce the newest feature to The Division 2: Expeditions.
Expeditions are free events that bring players to unexplored locations around D.C. to discover new narrative and gameplay opportunities. These sites offer unique challenges and lore not found anywhere else: new collectibles, treasure rooms, environmental puzzles, unique boss mechanics, and more await every Agent who embarks on our Expeditions!
A new mission will appear on the HUD to get you started. Visit the Helicopter Pilot at the Base of Operations to unlock the Expedition site. Alternatively, players can fast travel to the site via the game map.
A full Expedition site consists of three locations, each having a specific theme and tone. Each location releases one after another, eventually building to a complete Expedition site. If you haven't completed a location before the next becomes available, don't worry! The previous location remains open to explore. We want everyone to take the time to dig into the new elements featured in each location to discover all its hidden secrets.
Completing all three locations grants access to an exclusive treasure room full of rewards!
Mastery System Edit
In addition to exploration, we have an additional challenge layer associated with Expeditions: the Mastery System. These optional, replayable challenges become available after players have completed the Story playthrough of a location. Measured in Bronze, Silver, or Gold ratings, players are tasked with completing challenges tailored to each specific location. Performance is also measured on the individual level as opposed to groups, so your payout will be a direct result of your own efforts. The higher the rating earned, the greater the rewards!
Complete Expeditions in their entirety—achieving Gold Mastery and accessing the final treasure rooms—to earn a variety of rewards! Be sure to complete as many challenges as possible to earn the maximum number of rewards. Don't forget to pick up the loot dropped by enemies along the way!
