I kinda forgot that there’s two free-to-play The Division projects: Here’s a look at both

The Division Heartland

We have some actual gameplay now

The Division Heartland was shown off today at the September 2022 Ubisoft Forward stream, which is still moving forward as a free-to-play Division game.

Described as focusing on “streamlined gameplay,” you’ll be defending “middle-America” with new characters and stories: “Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is a free-to-play survival-action multiplayer shooter set in a rural community in mid-crisis. Explore a hostile environment as you fight alongside and against other trained agents and uncover the mysteries of Silver Creek.”. You can get a look at gameplay below. As a reminder, it’s arriving on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X in the future.

Oh, and in case you forgot, there’s another Division game in the works: Tom Clancy’s The Division Resurgence. Here’s how it works: “Explore a highly contaminated area of New York City, fight NPCs to get high-rarity loot and get to the extraction point to save it to your inventory. But beware of other players. Agents can go Rogue at any moment and decide to stab you in the back to steal your stuff, even your own teammates.” That’s also free-to-play, and coming to mobile devices (iOS and Android) with a closed beta coming this fall.

Ubisoft also confirmed that work has begun on Year 5 of The Division 2 proper (beyond the upcoming seasonal shifts happening later this year), so that game is still alive for the time being.
