Getting game titles for free are a gamer’s delight and Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s The Division will be available for free for PC, PS4 and Xbox One users for this weekend.
This is a great chance to try out the game if you were planning to buy it or even otherwise, it’s a great chance to get your hands on a popular title.
The game is set in New York, which has been destroyed due to an unknown plague and your job as an agent of the elite Division is to take back control of the streets of the city from criminals.
The company had been offering free trials, which would give players full access to the game until they reach level 8 or complete six hours playing the game — whichever is earlier.
The free trials will resume once the free weekend access to the full game ends.
“This weekend, the pandemic-ravage streets of The Division’s Manhattan are yours to explore for free. You’ll be able to download and play the full game at no cost on PC, PS4 and Xbox One,” the company stated.
Even if you had already downloaded the free trial before the free weekend starts, you will be able to access the full version of the game.
The free to play weekend was started on Thursday and will continue through Sunday. The exact time of the free-to-play weekend depends on the platform — PC, Xbox One, PS4 — that you’re playing the game on as well as your physical location.
Note that this isn’t the demo that you’re getting for free, rather the full game. So, the sooner you get started with it, the more you’ll come to know if you really want to purchase the game later.
To add more fun to the party, Ubisoft has reduced the price of Tom Clancy’s The Division (Standard edition) to $19.99 for all three platforms till May 15, 2017 — hoping you do buy the game after the two-day long teaser.
The Gold edition of the game is available for $31.49 on PS4 and PC, and $35.99 on Xbox One.
If you plan to upgrade to the full version of the game, all your progress and characters from the free weekend will carry over.
