Ubisoft outlines ambitious post-launch content line-up for Tom Clancy’s The Division. Includes free updates and paid add-ons.

Ubisoft has revealed its post-launch plans for Tom Clancy’s The Division, which will include regular free content updates and paid expansions, after the game’s release next week.

Upon its release, we’re told, that players will be able to take part in “new tasks and challenges” through daily and weekly missions, as well as Dark Zone events. This, we’re told, will ensure that there are fresh activities to do, once the player has finished the main storyline and end-game content.

Though, that is only a small part of the “evolving online open-world” that Ubisoft has planned. It will quickly be followed in April and May, respectively, with two content updates that will add “new features and most-wanted functionalities.” Each will be made available to all players at no additional charge, and are outlined below:

  • 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.

They will be followed by three additional paid expansions – the first expected to arrive in June. As of the moment, the exact pricing of these add-ons is unconfirmed. However, they will be made available for free to Season Pass holders or those who’ve purchased the Gold Edition and the Sleeper Agent / Collector’s Edition of Tom Clancy’s The Division. Each is outlined below:

  • 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.

Undoubtedly Ubisoft has put some serious thought into the post-release content for Tom Clancy’s The Division and understandably so. A game of this magnitude – and with this potential – is going to take some serious dedication and upkeep to ensure that players keep coming back time and time again. New content on a regular basis is an absolute must-have.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is set in New York, after a devastating pandemic sweeps through the city on Black Friday. In mere days, basic services fail. Society collapses into chaos amidst the panic for food and water. In its wake, The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents is activated to restore order.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is scheduled for release on March 8 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Be sure to check out the video below.
