Tom Clancy’s The Division is free to play for the next four days.
Ubisoft have announced a free weekend of play for open-world shooter, Tom Clancy’s The Division. The promotion runs from May 4 – that’s today, folks – and is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The free weekend promotion is an increasingly popular initiative used by publishers to bolster the player base of online-only multiplayer titles. The Division has come a long way since its initial, somewhat shaky, release, so a return trip to quarantined Manhattan could be a worthwhile venture.
If you do take part and like what you play, you’ll be able to pick up the game’s Standard and Gold Editions with a 60% discount on all digital stores until May 9, 2017. All progress from the free weekend will transfer over to the full game.
You can access the game on each platform during the following times:
- Xbox One: May 4 at 7AM UTC – May 8 at 7AM UTC.
- PlayStation 4: May 4 at 7AM UTC – May 8 at 7AM UTC.
- PC (via uPlay): May 4 at 5PM UTC – May 7 at 8PM UTC.
The game’s existing free trial offer – which gives full access to the main game until level 8, or up to six hours of playtime – will be paused for the duration of the free weekend.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is now well into its second year, and will soon receive two free DLC updates. The first expansion will take the form of an event system that will push players to activities that feature modifiers, leaderboards, and unique vanity items. Details of the second update are more sketchy, but Ubisoft has promised it will be more content-focused, although not necessarily include new story missions.
