For fans who have been wanting to give Tom Clancy’s The Division a go before they purchase it, the developers at Ubisoft Massive has made it so that fans will soon be able to try the third-person shooter for free this weekend. As it happens the full game will be available in a free trial form starting on Thursday, May 4, 2017 until Sunday, May 7, 2017, with the current version of the title’s trial–which allows folks to play until they reach level 8 or 6 hours of game time–will be suspended in order to make the whole release playable.
Of course, the free trial for this weekend will start at different times depending in which region fans reside. In order to paint a clearer picture of exactly when the free weekend trial for Tom Clancy’s The Division goes live, gamers can consult the handy chart from Ubisoft Massive below depicting a global map pointing out the demo period’s start and end times.
For those who end up enjoying their time with The Division during the free weekend trial, they will be able to take advantage of 60% discounts on both the standard and Gold Edition, with the latter including the game’s Season Pass. Not to mention, discounts for the title will be made available on all digital stores until May 15, 2017. What’s more is that all progress made during the free trial will transfer over to any purchases of the game made.
Aside from the upcoming free trial for The Division, the developers at Ubisoft Massive have been working diligently to continue providing ample post-launch support in the way of gameplay changes and refinements. As it happens, Update 1.6 for the title recently made some changes to hip-fire mechanics, Nimble healing, and fixed a litany bugs, errors, and glitches to help improve the multiplayer shooter’s environment. With this being the case, fans who try out the trial and end up buying The Division will hopefully continue to receive such solid attention from the studio.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with the free trial starting on Thursday, May 4, 2017 for each of the aforementioned platforms.
