Tom Clancy’s The Division will have post-launch paid expansions, Ubisoft has announced. Early details on the company’s post-release content plans were announced in a blog post today, with three expansions scheduled. The paid expansions, which are included in the game’s Season Pass, will not only have new content but also new gear and new types of gameplay designed to engage players after they’ve completed the main portion of The Division. Although specifics won’t be announced until closer to each expansion’s launch, Ubisoft did share some details on each one.
The first expansion will be called “Underground” and will let a squad of four players explore new territory in a post-epidemic New York City underworld. The second expansion will be called “Survival” and players will have to survive in a hostile environment that will challenge even the most hardcore players. The third and final expansion will be called “Last Stand.”
Those that purchase the Season Pass in time for The Division‘s launch on March 8 will receive an exclusive sawed-off shotgun in addition to new outfits and weapon skins. Season Pass owners will also get monthly perks in the form of exclusive content drops and events.
Those that choose not to purchase the Season Pass won’t be left in the dark however, as Ubisoft revealed that the game will receive free updates that will be available to all players throughout the year. Those updates will be built around new game modes, such as cooperative challenges that reward your squad’s ability to successfully work together.
The Division Season Pass is currently available as part of the Gold Edition and Collector’s Edition of the game. The closed beta will start January 28 for Xbox One while PC and PlayStation 4 gamers can check out the game a day later. Pre-ordering the game will guarantee participation in the closed beta.
