Divsion Day stream

During the Division Day stream celebrating the seven-year anniversary of the franchise, Ubisoft shared more details for three games in Tom Clancy’s The Division universe, including The Division 2, The Division Heartland, and The Division Resurgence. Ubisoft also shared details of new projects in the works that will connect fans with new stories and new experiences inspired by the world of The Division—pulling the worlds together and encouraging fans to explore the franchise together.

The Division Day stream also touched on projects in the works that will connect fans with new stories and new experiences inspired by the world of The Division. Players can purchase collectible action figures of Caleb Dunne and Brian Johnson, Agents featured in the original announcement of The Division 2  later this year. And the series, which is no strangers to comics is also getting a new webtoon coming next year. The new series will chronicle the journey of a teacher in Houston, Texas, whose watch lights up with the telltale orange glow as the Dollar Flu outbreak spreads, as they make unlikely allies and encounter new factions far from the East Coast.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: Year 5

Year 5 will kick off in June, but players can already get their hands on an upcoming new mode, Descent, by participating in a public PC test server available tomorrow, April 21. From April 25 to May 9, the Resident Evil Leon Kennedy RPD outfit will also be available to all players who log in. For a full breakdown of content check out the bullet points below, provided by Ubisoft.

  • Season 1: Broken Wings (June): This new season brings a new twist on Manhunts and introduces a new game mode titled Descent, a rogue-lite mode available for free to all Division 2 players when Year 5 begins. Players will also see the continuation of a multi-season rebuild of the Castle Settlement that will bring the devastated landmark back to life with a renewed purpose. As a part of the premium pass for Season One: Broken Wings, players will be able to unlock pieces of a Splinter Cell themed outfit to help Fifth Freedom their way throughout DC and NYC.
  • Season 2: Puppeteers: A challenging new Incursion will take Agents on a venture out to the Meret Estate for another confrontation with the Cleaners.
  • Season 3: Vanguard: Agents will go back to New York City for the holidays and discover new revelations about Aaron Keener and his Rogues.
  • Season 4: Black Diamond: New story DLC will be available that adds new zones, new main missions, and a whole new endgame structure.

Each season will also continue to introduce new Manhunts, Leagues, and Events. Players will need to own the Warlords of New York expansion in order to access all of the new content aside from Descent mode, which will be open to all The Division 2 owners.

 Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland

A PvPvE experience, Heartland takes players to Silver Creek, once a pleasant town in the American Midwest, left in ruins following the spread of the Dollar Flu. Silver Creek is a hostile environment filled with deadly contamination, roaming enemy hordes, and the looming threat of sickness and dehydration. In The Division Heartland, and for the first time in The Division, Silver Creek’s Base of Operations is a shared space. Silver Creek’s Rockit Rink is an abandoned roller skating rink where players can socialize, form a group, customize their character, and prep for the next Operation.

Each session begins and ends in the Base of Operations, and each time players exfiltrate, they will take back materials and gear they’ve collected better to prepare them for future days in the town. Players will use the Base of Operations to fabricate supplies and ready their go-bag preparing for their time out in the town. Before each session, they can select between three Classes: Weapons Expert, Medic, and Survivalist. Each Class brings a unique ability, and in a squad, each truly shines when complemented by the others. When they venture out during the daytime, players will be scavenging for supplies and preparing to survive the night. At night, Silver Creek becomes much more tenuous, with PvEvP gameplay forcing players to think quickly and potentially work together to make it out alive with their loot intact.

The Divsion Heartland team is taking a test-and-learn approach to building this game, continually conducting test phases and gathering player feedback before moving on to the next phase. Players can sign up for future closed tests here. Those invited to participate in closed tests will also receive five invites to share with friends.

The Division Resurgence

While The Division Resurgence had the least amount of information available compared to other titles at the Division Day Stream, there was still some news. The next phase of testing for The Division Resurgence will be coming this summer in select territories.  For the first time, players with iOS-powered devices will have the opportunity to enjoy The Division Resurgence, along with Android users, in these select territories.

Players can pre-register here for a chance to play in future tests and stay tuned for updates regarding this summer’s test phase.
