Today, Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy’s The Division kicks off a free weekend, May 4th until May 8th, this free play weekend commences at 8am GMT today (4th May) and runs right through until 8am Monday (8th May).
All progress from the free weekend will carry over to the full game if players purchase it. The current free trial offer, which gives players full access to the main game until they reach level 8 or complete six hours of playtime, will be on hiatus during the free weekend but reinstated once the free weekend promotion ends. Players who have downloaded the free trial before May 4th will see trial restrictions lifted until the end of the free weekend.
Ubisoft have also stated that “To coincide with this free weekend, there will be discounts on Tom Clancy’s The Division’s Standard and Gold Editions on all digital stores”.
While that discount doesn’t seem to be live at present on the Xbox Store it is possible that’ll it will become available once the free weekend begins, or perhaps it will see The Division included in next week’s Deals with Gold.
Tom Clancy’s The Division takes place weeks after a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. One by one, basic services fail and in only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, is activated to save society. In this immersive online open world action RPG, discover a hostile and dynamic environment where exploration and player progression are essential. Team up with other players to investigate the sources of the virus and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.
Year 2 of Tom Clancy’s The Division will see the release of two new major updates in the coming months. Both will be free and released simultaneously across all platforms.
Will you be taking advantage of the upcoming free play weekend? Whether it be playing The Division for the first time or jumping back in to team up with a friend who fancies their chances against the hordes of gangs and mercenaries who have over run New York City. Let us know in the comments below!
