The developers at Ubisoft Massive officially reveal May’s Season Pass content drop for its wildly popular military action-MMO, Tom Clancy’s The Division.
For those unaware, purchasing Tom Clancy’s The Division‘s $40 Season Pass grants fans access to “special benefits” each and every month, such as materials created for use in-game that are offered up free-of-charge. With that in mind, by way of the action-MMO’s official Twitter account, Ubisoft has now unveiled the extra content found in May 2016’s Season Pass for The Division.
As seen in the tweet below, the free wares for the third-person shooter are a pair of weapon skins and some high-end crafting materials. The new looks for players’ guns are safari purple and burst mountain, while one of the items that’s to be used for crafting is Division Tech.
Earlier this morning, The Division‘s servers were down for maintenance to fix some general bugs and glitches, and to presumably prepare the game to receive the aforementioned content drop. On the horizon, the next major patch for The Division is Update 1.2, which is supposed to buff loot. However, Ubisoft has yet to provide any specific details as to exactly how the system’s “significant improvements” are going to work.
Whatever else Ubisoft plans on introducing into the game may need to be more than “significant,” however, as The Division‘s community is apparently becoming more fractured each day, with some fans leaving without looking back. For instance, about a week ago it was revealed that the action-MMO’s PC player base dropped a whopping 81% since its launch back in March of this year.
Sure, The Division‘s forthcoming Broken Circle Incursion is set to come out this month, and it ought to satisfy a lot of would-be Agents, but if it gets released in the same state that the game’s first raid-like activity was in—that is, Falcon Lost—players might just pack it in altogether. As a matter of fact, some fans ended up losing all hopes for an enjoyable experience after the myriad cheats and glitches in Falcon Lost came about, arguing that the exploits had ruined the game completely.
In any event, while the free goods for May 2016’s Season Pass content drop are nice enough, it’s not the kind of stuff that will keep players coming back for more in The Division. Moving forward, perhaps Ubisoft should take some notes from Rocket League as to how future content and expansions should be handled.
