The beta for The Division is upon us and the internet hype is swelling. Xbox One began the beta yesterday and PS4 and PC are joining the fun today. We’ll be streaming the beta starting Friday at 6PM PST and will stream each night of the beta at the same time on the Fextralife YouTube Channel. On the heels of all of this beta goodness, Ubisoft has revealed their plans for post launch support and DLC. Let’s take a look at what to expect as laid out on The Division’s official site.
The development team is working on a complete post-launch plan to keep the experience fresh for the months to come, including several free updates, new features and functionality. The free updates to be released for all players will add new game modes such as challenging group-oriented operations to test players’ abilities in co-op mode and win unique rewards.
There are also 3 paid expansions that will be released over the course of the year. Each expansion builds on The Division, continuing your agent’s journey and progress with new content, gear and gameplay as you fight to take back New York:
Expansion I: Underground
This first major expansion opens up a new area to players as they explore the uncharted underworld of New York City with up to 3 friends for intense co-op action.
Expansion II: Survival
In this expansion, players will have to survive as long as possible in a very hostile environment that will challenge even the most talented agents.
Expansion III: Last Stand
There were no details shared on this DLC as of yet.
