Play The Division for Free with XBL Gold This Weekend
With the launch of its biggest free update yet in Ubisofts Division, coming December 5, Ubisoft and Microsoft are hosting a free weekend exclusively for Xbox Live Gold members and offering deep discounts on the full game.
Starting Wednesday, December 6 at 11:01 p.m. PST through Sunday, December 10 at 10:59 p.m. PST, you can play Tom Clancy’s The Division and all three expansions for free and see for yourself why The Division is better than it’s ever been.
For those few who may not know much about the game, it is set just a few weeks after a deadly pandemic plunges New York City into the chaos of quarantine and evacuation, The Division is a striking vision of the collapse of a city. You play as an elite agent called upon to infiltrate the devastated boroughs and help bring vital services back online, but to do so you’ll need to confront the hostile factions that have seized control. Playing solo or in co-op with up to three other players, you must fight your way through the streets, buildings, and tunnels of the city. As you level up and grow stronger, you will outfit your agent with increasingly sophisticated gear and face even deadlier enemies as you strive to restore order and discover the origin of the deadly virus.
With update 1.8 having arrived on December 5, a whole new area of the city is now opened up for exploration. The West Side Pier is an industrial port in the northwest corner of the map dominated by a massive aircraft carrier, and it will play host to two new game modes. Resistance will pit Division agents against an unprecedented alliance of enemy factions, challenging players to fight off waves of powerful foes and formidable bosses. In Skirmish, two teams of four will fight to subdue each other in a trio of new arenas. New rules for going rogue in the Dark Zone, new exotic weapons, and the spread of sinister Hunter enemies will ensure that returning players have their hands full.
The three prevoius expansions will be free for players who own the full game from December 5-10. The game and the expansions will be discounted up to 70% off on Microsoft Store from December 6 at 4 p.m. PST through December 12 at 2 a.m. PST.
