As we draw closer to the first anniversary for Ubisoft’s launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division, the developer/publisher have continued their support for the action RPG through the release of a new expansion, game update and free trial service – all available from today.
Last Stand DLC
As arguably the most substantial new content in this update, Tom Clancy’s The Division: Last Stand is a new piece of paid downloadable content which is available either standalone or as part of the season pass. Released simultaneously on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, this pack will provide new opportunities for players willing to spend the extra money.
When the situation in the Dark Zone spiraled out of control and all semblance of civilisation collapsed, the Joint Task Force had no choice but to withdraw from the area. In the chaos of their departure, they left behind important tactical terminals – SHD tech data relays loaded with operational information – and now rogue agents are closing in to capture them. In Last Stand, players will join a team with seven other Division agents on a mission to prevent that from happening and ensure the Division agents regain control of the situation.
One main objective of Tom Clancy’s The Division: Last Stand is to introduce players to a new way of experiencing the Dark Zone – this time through a session based adversarial game mode featuring clear objectives and win objectives while incorporating key elements of the area. As with the in-universe description above, players will be on a team of eight Division agents, who must fight against a team of Rogue agents in an attempt to capture tactical terminals.
Outside of this, Tom Clancy’s The Division: Last Stand will also feature a new incursion titled ‘Stolen Signal’.
Haven’t experienced the open world streets of New York amidst a surprising Black Friday smallpox outbreak? Ubisoft will begin offering a free trial for Tom Clancy’s The Division from today on the Xbox One and PC, and starting March 9th 2017 on the PlayStation 4. The demo will allow anyone to go through the game’s main campaign, until they reach one of two milestones, whichever comes first:
- Reach Level 8
- Complete six hours of playtime
All progress achieved during this demo can be transferred over to the full game.
Even if you don’t wish to spend money on new content, this latest compilation of updates from Ubisoft also provides a new game update for everyone. Known as Update 1.6, this provides an expanded Dark Zone map (with three new areas unlocked), new contamination events (taking place within an underground Dark Zone location), new weapons/landmarks, Dark Zone leaderboards, and a new Legendary Mode for those looking for even more challenge when playing Tom Clancy’s The Division.
