Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division has been available since it released back in March 2016. The game is one of Ubisoft’s most successful releases and for a new IP, it continues to shatter records for the company. As the months have passed, Ubisoft has made a serious effort to improve and enhance The Division.

Everything from new updates, to DLCs, to expansions have all helped make The Division a more well rounded experience. The first expansion “Underground” took gamers into the subways and tunnels of NYC. Close quarter combat is when The Division is at its most intense, and “Underground” brought more of that type of gameplay in spades.

From there, Ubisoft released the second expansion called “Survival,” and it tested a player’s endurance and will. The new mode is extremely intense and asks gamers to survive as long as possible. Whether you are playing against other gamers or AI, “Survival” is absolutely brutal, particularly the longer you, sorry to be redundant, survive. This expansion truly tests a player’s skills and mental strength.

Finally, the third major expansion “Last Stand” generated a wild 8v8, PvP experience where gamers have to capture and hold certain points in order to gain a victory. This mode challenges teams to work well together, and creates some incredibly tense, yet addicting gameplay. Each expansion from The Division‘s first year of DLC brought interesting changes to the main game’s formula.

Updates that Ubisoft has released have brought about great changes to the experience. Things like new Dark Zone areas, adjustments to Time to Kill, fixes to loot drops, the implementation of World Level section and more have made The Division a game worth coming back to. If you have yet to try The Division, now is the time to jump-in and see what you think.

Ubisoft is giving gamers on PS4, Xbox One and PC a chance to play the game for free. Starting on May 4 and running until May 7, the game will be free across all three platforms. There are absolutely no restrictions or limits on how far you can play the game. If you play and progress for 60 hours, you can play and progress for 60 hours.
