The Division’s epidemic-ravaged streets will be yours to explore when it launches on March 8, but the experience won’t end there. For starters, as you match wits with vicious gangs and try to restore order to Manhattan, you’ll be able to pursue new daily and weekly missions, as well as Dark Zone events that will potentially put you in the crosshairs of Rogue Agents.
Additionally, two free updates, available to all players, will hit in the months following launch. Beginning in April, the Incursions update will add an endgame activity designed for squad play, challenging teams of four players to face nigh-unstoppable enemies for high-level loot. Also coming with the Incursions update is loot trading. Players in the same squad will be able to trade loot that’s collected during their co-op game session. The Conflict update will follow in May, adding new Dark Zone feature and an incursion into New York’s Columbus Circle.
Three paid expansions are also planned throughout the year, and will be available to players with a Season Pass or to those who buy the Gold or Collector’s Edition of the game. In June, the Underground expansion will send you to hunt enemies in the vast mazes of tunnels and subways that run under Manhattan. Underground will be followed by Survival later in the summer, which will challenge you to survive for as long as possible in a very hostile environment while gathering supplies and equipment. Finally, Last Stand will arrive along with winter, challenging players with a new, relentless threat.
The Division will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 8.
