The Division Pre-Order Deals: Complete Roundup

By | 8 months ago 

Tom Clancy’s The Division goes live next week Tuesday on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. No matter your platform of choice, pre-order deals and bonuses are available, so if you haven’t snagged a copy yet and are on the fence, we’ve rounded up all the noteworthy legitimate The Division deals for you to window shop.

With release schedule now in full view, depending on your retailer of choice, you can begin as soon as the server goes live at midnight March 8th Australian Eastern Daylight Time. Preload started yesterday for the Xbox One and starts later Thursday night for the PC. PlayStation 4 owners won’t be able to pre-load until this Saturday, March 6th.

If you’re buying the game on the PC, the best bet is probably one of the third party digital retailers listed below, all of which have preload offers available as of writing. The best deal for PC’s digital Gold Edition (which comes in the form of a Uplay key) is at GMG, where you can knock a full $20 off the ticket price by using coupon PRELOAD20 during checkout.

If you’re planning to play The Division on an Xbox One, one of the best pre-order deals is probably at the Microsoft Store, where you’ll receive free release day delivery if you order by March 4th, 10AM Pacific. Plus, you’ll also receive a free $10 Xbox gift card digital code, good towards any future Xbox Live purchases.

The Division PC Deals

Gold Edition (include Season Pass)

Standard Edition

Update 3/6/2016: All retailers above have pre-load available for Tom Clancy’s The Division. If you pre-order now you’ll receive the Uplay key right away to get started on downloading the game client. Pricing has gone slightly up at select stores with the discount percentage around 18% to 20% now that the game is about to be released.

If you’re a PC gamer, expect to find the best outright discounts. Three reputable retailers are in the running with worthy price breaks: Games Planet, Funstock Digital, and Green Man Gaming. All the retailers listed above are non-coincidentally located in the UK and carry a 18% to 20% discount to £29.99, but we’ve confirmed you can buy these The Division PC/Uplay keys and expect them to work worldwide. If you’re in the US, you’re getting an even better deal due to a favorable currency conversion to about $42. If you prefer to not deal with currency issues, you can just grab from GMG for $48 with the straight-up coupon.

For the Gold Edition, select deals are available at GMG and Funstock. Both offer up the more Deluxe/beefier edition for a higher ticket price, but after discount its far from paying the full $100 at typical brick and mortar shops.


The Division Console Deals

If you’re willing to trade an outright instant discount for a bonus, the PS4 and Xbox One consoles have deals galore. Right now Dell Home is offering a $25 eGift card bonus when you pre-order The Division Gold Edition there. If you don’t have a console to play The Division with, Dell Home is also offering up the 1TB Xbox One Tom Clancy’s The Division console bundle for $399.99 with a bonus $100 eGift card. (Update: gift card deal is now expired at Dell Home, making this not much of a deal).

Want a discount and not a bonus offer? Best Buy and Amazon are where you need to look, but you’ll need to be a paid member of either Best Buy’s Gamers Club Unlocked program or Amazon’s Prime. Both retailers offer the same 20% off when you pre-order with the special membership discounts.

Finally the last noteworthy deal is the previously mentioned deal from the Microsoft Store.  Microsoft is giving away a bonus $10 Xbox gift card when you buy a physical copy of the game there, which Microsoft emails to you about 10 days after they ship your copy of The Division. If you pre-order by Friday, March 4th at 10AM PST, you’ll get the game delivered to your door on its release day – so long as you don’t live in the middle of nowhere.

If none of these pre-order deals for Tom Clancy’s The Division entice you and you’re not keen on playing Day 1 (or the first few weeks of release), you can circle back within a month or two, when we expect pricing on the PC version to remain relatively the same. On the console front, however, unless the game is doing abysmally in sales (we’d say unlikely), you probably won’t see a big discount till around the three month mark.
