The Division Post-Launch Plans Detailed

/ Mar 3rd, 2016 No Comments

The Division

The Division is on track to be one of Ubisoft’s biggest releases when it launches on March 8.

Massive Entertainment’s MMO-esque third-person shooter RPG will have a group of up to four players trying to restore order in a post-pandemic Manhattan. The game will feature lots of loot to help agents level up, an exciting and dangerous PvP area called the Dark Zone, and a potentially meaty campaign. But what about the game’s content outside of launch?

Ubisoft decided to change their previously tight-lipped approach on The Division and have detailed post-launch plans for the game. To keep the game fresh, daily and weekly missions will be introduced alongside Dark Zone events. The month of April introduces an Incursions update that adds a new endgame activity where teams of four players will face endless waves of enemies at the chance for high-level loot. The Incursions update will also introduce the ability for teams to trade loot collected during their co-op sessions. In May, the Conflict update will add new gameplay to the Dark Zone and a new incursion taking place in New York’s Columbus Circle.

Three expansions will also be released for The Division, available as a part of the game’s season pass or individually. June brings the Underground expansion where agents will fight and take out enemies in the tunnels and subway systems throughout Manhattan’s underground. Survival comes later in the summer and challenges players to survive in a hostile environment while collecting supplies and equipment. The final update, Last Stand, arrives and the winter and will pit players against a new, unknown threat.

The Division will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Quick Take

It’s almost surreal that The Division’s release is nearly upon us. Hype for the game has gone up and down over the years with minor and major information drops; but the handful of betas seemed to drum up a lot of interest. Many parts of the game are still unknown, like whether or not there will be raid activities or how long and fun the endgame will be. Massive has had a few years to observe player reaction to Bungie’s handling of Destiny and its long periods of bland content. Time will tell if they follow down the same path.
