Ubisoft announced today that they’ll be hosting a free weekend for The Division from Thursday, May 4 until Sunday, May 7 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The file will be available to download from the PlayStation Store starting tomorrow (click on Try Free Demo when the Free Weekend is live), and here’s what you can expect:
Starting May 4, you’ll be able to download and play the full game at no cost on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and hit the streets as an agent of the elite Division to reclaim Manhattan. Activated as a last resort after New York is devastated by a mysterious new disease, you’ll battle alongside other players in a fight to take back the streets from criminals, mercenaries, and flamethrower-wielding creeps called Cleaners.
PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold is required during the Free Weekend, and your progress from the Free Weekend will carry over to the full game if you decide to buy it. The current The Division free trial that lets you play the full game for six hours will be on hiatus during the Free Weekend. If you already have the free trial, restrictions will be lifted until the end of the Free Weekend.
Additionally, from May 4 to May 15, the PS4 version of The Division will be on sale for $19.99 USD (standard edition) and $31.49 (Gold Edition) through the PlayStation Store.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft revealed that The Division will receive two free expansions in 2017. Expect more details on the content in the coming months.
