UBISOFT® REVEALS TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION™ YEAR ONE POST-RELEASE PLANS
Free Updates to Start Next Month with New Features and Challenges, Paid Expansions to Follow this Summer and Winter
SAN FRANCISCO— March 3, 2016 – Today, Ubisoft® revealed the post-release plans for Tom Clancy’s the Division™. This evolving online open world RPG will keep players engaged with on-going content that will build on the experience within the game long after release.
Following launch, players will be able to take on new tasks and challenges within the main storyline and end-game through daily and weekly missions as well as Dark Zone events. In addition to these ongoing activities, two free updates will be available to all players, adding new features and most-wanted functionalities:
• Incursions: In April, the first free update will introduce the first incursion, a new challenging end-game activity developed specifically for squad play. Teams will be able to test their skills as they face seemingly unstoppable enemies to gain high-level weapons and equipment. This update will also add one of the community’s most-wanted feature, loot trading; allowing players in the same group to trade loot collected during a co-op game session.
• Conflict: In May, the second free update will add new features to the Dark Zone and add a new incursion in the iconic Columbus Circle.
Three paid expansions will also be released over the course of the year and be available in the Season Pass, Gold Edition and Collector’s Edition of the game. Each expansion builds on The Division, continuing the player’s journey and progress with new content, gear and gameplay:
• 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.
Tom Clancy’s the Division will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on March 8.
@Moonwalker: plus the last 2 trully great R* games were long time ago for me (Bully and SA), so they have to do a lot to top these in my list. (43 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: even though i'm interested to see their 1st game for this gen, i'll try to not get hyped too much.It sounds good and all, but fuck lknows if all these things will work so well. (46 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: its especially weird given the brutality of the finishers. it's like they had some weird moral objection to showing blood...after animating the violent neck stabbing. lol (1 Hour ago)
@AMDman18: Xbox One X. Been seeing the lack of blood since E3. I thought that was just for the show. But nope. Such a weird decision of them. (1 Hour ago)
@Seth: That and you can swim. It's just a little something but more and more it started to look like we wouldn't be able. But it is :) (1 Hour ago)
instead of completely optional collectibles we're forced to put up with their survival systems that affect every facet of the game...yeah, give me backpacks any day of the week! lol (3 Hours ago)
anyways,the game having the MP3's shooting mechanics, dismemberment and varied random encounters/side missions is all i needed to know. (5 Hours ago)
