Ubisoft has announced The Division: Heartland, a free-to-play game that is part of the universe of the Tom Clancy’s The Division franchise.
Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, the historic studio behind The Division-branded games, Heartland will be a standalone. The game will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC, with a planned release sometime in 2021-2022.
At the moment we don’t have more details on what Heartland will be. Apart from its free-to-play nature, there is nothing to determine what kind of game we will be dealing with. However, it should be noted that Ubisoft declares on its site that the title “will offer a new perspective on the universe in a new framework” . Those interested will be able to try it prematurely through the test phases, by registering here.
We do know, however, that this title is a component of the transmedia extension of The Division, which is available through games of course, but also through films and novels. The expansion strategy is evident by the upcoming Netflix film starring Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal, but also by the announcement of a new novel taking place after the events of The Division 2.
Additional content is also coming for The Division 2. A DLC bringing a new game mode and new ways to advance our agent, with the aim of increasing the variety and viability of builds.
Finally, and for the first time, a mobile game The Division is in development.
