We’ve got even more new details for Tom Clancy’s The Division rolling in this week, including information on the game’s planned free updates and expansions that will be included in the season pass.
You can’t launch a game without a season pass these days, and Tom Clancy’s The Division is no different. As we’re learning from PC Gamer today, however, said season pass will be further bolstered by additional free updates for all players, as well as new features that will get plugged into the game in the coming months.
According to Ubisoft, a roadmap for The Division following launch has already been concocted, including three major expansions to the open-world action game. The first expansion is called Underground, and it will open up a whole new section of the map for players to explore under the streets of New York City. It would be neat if said expansion opens up a fast travel system via subway, too, but that’s only speculation as to what sort of “new features” might be coming. We would also accept a secret war against a rat-like society, but that doesn’t seem to really fit the feel of The Division.
The second big expansion will be called Survival and, according to the update, it will turn the entire city into a Dark Zone, which will open up the competitive PvP mode to the whole map.
The final expansion is the appropriately named Last Stand, though Ubisoft has kept its lips zipped as to what that bit of content will include.
If you decide to grab the season pass for The Division, it will also include some additional freebies for banking on the game nice and early. Those items include a sweet sawed-off shotgun, special outfits and weapons skins, as well as exclusive monthly events that will include things like content drops and in-game activities.
No word yet on how much the season pass for The Division will cost, but the modern norm hovers around the $20-$30 mark. That’s probably a safe expectation to tack onto the game’s standard $60 price point. If you want to go all out, though, the Gold Edition of The Division will set you back a hundred bucks, and it includes the season pass. No word yet on what other goodies are being offered to warrant that high price tag, so stay tuned for additional details.
Considering the fact that there was a period there where we weren’t sure if The Division was ever going to see the light of day, we’re excited to finally be so close to the game’s actual launch. Even better is the fact that, based on all of the early footage we’ve seen so far, the game looks like some solid fun.
