Ubisoft has announced a free weekend for popular Open World RPG shooter The Division, allowing everyone on PC to try the full game for three days. The free weekend, which is only available on PC, runs from September 14th 7pm CEST to September 17th 10pm CEST.
In addition, The Division’s standard and Gold editions are going on sale this weekend as part of the promotion, though specific pricing was not announced. Also worth noting is that all progress from the free weekend will carry over if you decide to buy it at a later date.
Recently, Ubisoft announced that free Update 1.8 “Resistance” is coming out later this year and adds loads of new content. The update introduces two new game modes; Resistance & Skirmish along with a new area, West Side Pier, which is spread across two new zones and will be accessible for all players.
Resistance is a PvE mode where different factions are teaming up to fight agents. Skirmish is a new PvP mode where two teams of four players will be competing to get the highest number of kills before the clock runs out. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy player is eliminated.
As an avid player of The Division myself i strongly urge anyone to play this game. However keep in mind you will need a pretty powerful PC to run the game. Recommended specs can be found below.
- Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, AMD FX-8350, or better.
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970, AMD Radeon R9 290, or better
