The Division Will Expand & Grow Over The Next Foreseeable Year

The Division

The first expansions and updates for The Division have been announced and all part of the recently announced Season Pass for The Division

We all knew that The Division was going to be getting a Season Pass and that it was going to be coming with at least three expansions for the game. It wouldn't be an Ubisoft title if it didn't have some form of DLC to entice gamers to drop more cash. As it is releasing next week, March 8th, it was looking like all we were going to be hearing about in detail was the first expansion and then we would have to wait and see what was coming for The Division. That is until now-ish.

Looks like we have a lot more coming to The Division via updates and said season pass and it looks like Ubisoft has a whole year's worth of content lined up for us all. Some of it free and some of it you can only get if you shell out the extra cash for the Season Pass. Of course as it should be assumed the free stuff will add a few minor things to the game while the Season Pass holders get all the true extras and full on game expansions to play around in. Either way as of now it looks like there will be something to look forward to each month.

You can see the full release schedule for all of the updates and expansions coming to The Division this year but it does look like the updates will house incursions and new features for the Dark Zone. If the schedule stays the same it looks like we'll get two free updates and then a whole expansion from launch until 2017. That of course is extrapolating off what is set down for now until June of this year. None the less it does look like they are taking The Division seriously in terms of not making it a one-and-done title.

The Division — Season Pass

Free Updates

  • Incursions — In April, the first free update will introduce the first incursion, a new challenging end-game activity developed specifically for squad play. Teams will be able to test their skills as they face seemingly unstoppable enemies to gain high-level weapons and equipment. This update will also add one of the community’s most-wanted feature, loot trading; allowing players in the same group to trade loot collected during a co-op game session.
  • Conflict — In May, the second free update will add new features to the Dark Zone and add a new incursion in the iconic Columbus Circle.

Paid Expansions

  • Expansion I — Underground - Available in June, this first major expansion lets players explore the uncharted underworld of New York City. Players will chase deadly enemies with up to three other Agents through an endless maze of tunnels and subways.
  • Expansion II — Survival - Available this summer, this expansion will challenge players to survive as long as possible by gathering essential supplies in a very hostile environment.
  • Expansion III — Last Stand - Next winter, a new threat rises as players and their squad must prepare to defend against a relentless foe.
