We’re under a week away from the release of Tom Clancy’s The Division, and today, Ubisoft has decided to detail the game’s post-release plans for the coming year.
Before we get into the paid content, Ubisoft will release a number of free updates for The Division, the first coming in April with the availability of the first incursion. The first incursion will introduce a new, challenging end-game activity that has been specifically designed for squad play as players work together to face seemingly unstoppable enemies to gain high-level loot. Speaking of loot, next month’s update will introduce loot trading which will allow players in the same group to trade loot collected during a co-op game session.
In May, a second free update, called Conflict, will add new features to the Dark Zone and add a new incursion in the Columbus Circle area of Manhattan.
After the release of those two free content packs, three paid expansions will be released over the course of the year and will be available within its Season Pass and Gold & Collector’s Editions. Here are the upcoming expansions and their details:
- Expansion I: Underground
- Available in June, this first major expansion lets players explore the uncharted underworld of New York City. Players will chase deadly enemies with up to three other Agents through an endless maze of tunnels and subways.
- Expansion II: Survival
- Available this summer, this expansion will challenge players to survive as long as possible by gathering essential supplies in a very hostile environment.
- Expansion III: Last Stand
- Next winter, a new threat rises as players and their squad must prepare to defend against a relentless foe.
