Ubisoft is treating the world of a free play weekend for Tom Clancy's The Division. The base game is free to everyone starting on May 4th and running through May 7th. There is no limit on progress as there is in the free trial edition, so players can go as far as the weekend carries them. In addition, all progress will be saved should players opt to purchase the game.
Ubisoft is celebrating the first year of The Division. Players will receive 200 premium credits from March 9-16 along with in-game bonuses such as a 2X multiplier on high-value target rewards (March 9-11) and 2x multiplier on field proficiency caches (March 11). In addition, Ubisoft announced that no season pass will be required for the two expansions coming in Year 2.
The Division will be receiving another DLC with the release of patch 1.6 and Last Stand in the near future. Last stand challenges to players to control a trio of tactical areas on one of the four Dark Zone maps. Within each control point are three objectives that have to be completed in order to get control. Once a location is secured, points are awarded until one team reaches the maximum score to win.
The Division will be updated on Tuesday, November 22nd with the Survival DLC. Survival adds a completely new game mode that pits two dozen players onto the New York City map during a blinding blizzard. As the name implies, they will need to find food, clothing, shelter, medicine all while racing the clock to find a cure for the epidemic crippling the city.
The Division servers will be coming down on October 25th for the deployment of the v1.4 update that brings a massive number of changes to the game including UI improvements and a huge number of gameplay enhancements. In addition, a new feature called "World Level Tiers" will be added that will allow players to choose what level enemies will be encountered that will also determine the quality of reward gear that is dropped.
