Ubisoft recently commemorated the seven-year anniversary of the Tom Clancy’s The Division franchise with an exciting Division Day stream, offering fans a wealth of information on three games in the series: The Division 2, Heartland, and Resurgence. The stream also provided a glimpse into new projects that will immerse fans in fresh stories and experiences inspired by the world of The Division.
The Division 2 – Year 5
Year 5 of The Division 2 is set to begin in June, unveiling an array of new content spread across four seasons. Each season will introduce unique features, such as new game modes, story DLCs, Incursions, Manhunts, Leagues, and Events. The new mode, Descent, is now available for testing on a public PC test server. Additionally, from 25 April to 9 May, players who log in will have the opportunity to obtain the Resident Evil Leon Kennedy RPD outfit. Descent mode will be accessible to all Division 2 owners, but to enjoy the rest of the new content, players must have the Warlords of New York expansion. The content of each of the four seasons is below:
- Season 1: Broken Wings (June): This new season brings a new twist on Manhunts and introduces a new game mode titled Descent, a rogue-lite mode available for free to all Division 2 players when Year 5 begins. Players will also see the continuation of a multi-season rebuild of the Castle Settlement that will bring the devastated landmark back to life with a renewed purpose. As a part of the premium pass for Season One: Broken Wings, players will be able to unlock pieces of a Splinter Cell themed outfit to help Fifth Freedom their way throughout DC and NYC.
- Season 2: Puppeteers: A challenging new Incursion will take Agents on a venture out to the Meret Estate for another confrontation with the Cleaners.
- Season 3: Vanguard: Agents will go back to New York City for the holidays and discover new revelations about Aaron Keener and his Rogues.
- Season 4: Black Diamond: New story DLC will be available that adds new zones, new main missions, and a whole new endgame structure.
The Division Heartland
The Division Heartland, taking place in the devastated Midwest town of Silver Creek, introduces a first-of-its-kind shared Base of Operations at Rockit Rink, an abandoned roller-skating rink. This hub allows players to socialize, customize their characters, form groups, and prepare for upcoming Operations. Heartland features three distinct classes for players to choose from: Weapons Expert, Medic, and Survivalist. Each class comes with unique abilities that complement one another in a squad. During daytime gameplay, players focus on scavenging for supplies and preparing for the night. When night falls, Silver Creek transforms into a high-stakes battleground with tense PvEvP gameplay, forcing players to strategize and potentially cooperate to escape with their loot intact.

In addition to the games, Ubisoft revealed a number of new projects inspired by the world of The Division. These include collectible action figures of Caleb Dunne and Brian Johnson, two agents featured in The Division 2’s original announcement. The figures will be available for purchase later this year. Furthermore, a new webtoon set to debut next year will chronicle the journey of a teacher in Houston, Texas, whose watch begins to emit an ominous orange glow as the Dollar Flu outbreak spreads. The webtoon will follow the teacher’s adventures as they forge unlikely alliances and encounter new factions far from the East Coast.
