'The Division' will get plenty of extras in its first year

Take word, Bungie: this is the way you inform players what they will anticipate for add-ons. Ubisoft has posted a roadmap for The Division‘s downloadable extras, outlining simply what you will get and when within the metropolis-in-disaster shooter’s first yr. Two free upgrades are coming early on. You will get a a staff-oriented endgame mode (Incursions) in April, whereas Might will deliver a Battle replace that features each a Columbus Circle occasion and a brand new Darkish Zone function. Paid DLC begins arriving in June, once you’ll get battles in New York Metropolis’s many underground tunnels; a Survival enlargement launches in the summertime, and a Final Stand state of affairs seems within the winter.

These are coming alongside recent missions (each every day and weekly) in addition to periodic Darkish Zone occasions. As Ubisoft notes, you should purchase both a Season Cross or one of many deluxe variations of the sport (Gold or Collector’s Version) when you’re sure that you’ll be wanting as many goodies as attainable.

There isn’t any telling how nicely the sport will maintain up over that interval, particularly because the free DLC runs out comparatively quickly after the March eighth launch. Nevertheless, the detailed schedule means that Ubisoft is a minimum of conscious of the pitfalls that plague Future and different motion video games within the hybrid on-line/offline vein. It is aware of that these titles can shortly run out of steam if there is not a gentle stream of latest content material, and a timetable might offer you a number of causes to stay round properly after the preliminary novelty wears off.
