Ubisoft has released early details on The Division’s post-release content, as the development team has a complete post-launch plan to keep the experience fresh for all players. This includes some information on the three expansions that are included with the game’s Season Pass. These paid expansions not only have new content, but also new gear, and new types of gameplay that are designed to engage players after they’ve completed the main portion of The Division. We have to wait a little longer for specifics on that content, but we do know the names of the expansions, their release order, and a few of the broader details.
The first expansion, called “Underground”, lets a squad of four players explore new territory in a post-epidemic New York City underworld. In the second expansion, called “Survival”, players will have to try to survive in a hostile environment that will challenge even the most hardcore Division players. The third and final expansion is (perhaps fittingly) titled “Last Stand”.
If you hit the streets of The Division’s New York on launch day with the Season Pass, you’ll get some goodies too, including an exclusive sawed-off shotgun as well as new outfits and weapon skins. Season Pass owners also get monthly perks in the form of exclusive content drops and events.
In addition to the Season Pass content, The Division will receive free updates – available to all players – throughout the year. These updates will be built around new game modes, featuring cooperative challenges that reward your squad’s ability to successfully work together.
The Division Season Pass is currently available as a part of the Gold Edition and Collector’s Edition of the game. Those of you who pre-ordered the game will be able to participate in a closed beta that starts on January 28 for Xbox One and January 29 for the PS4 and PC.
We’ll have more details on The Division before it’s released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 8. In the meantime, check out our previous coverage:
