Take Ubisoft’s open-world shooter RPG for a spin

Ubisoft is holding a free weekend for Tom Clancy's The Division that runs from Thursday, May 4 to Sunday, May 7, giving holdouts a chance to try out the year-old open-world shooter at no cost.

The Division’s free weekend will be available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Players will have access to the standard edition version of the game’s content, including co-op and competitive Dark Zone features.

Ubisoft promises that players who want to continue with the paid version — either standard or “gold” edition, which includes the game’s season pass — will be treated to a “hefty discount.” The game currently costs $49.99 on the PlayStation Store, Steam and Xbox Games Store, but players will be able to purchase the standard edition of The Division for $19.99 through May 15. The gold edition will be discounted to $31.49 to $35.99, depending on platform.

Here are the exact times for the free weekend, via Ubisoft:

XBOX will start on May 4, 2017 at 12:01AM PDT, and will end on May 7, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT.

PS4 will start on May 4, 2017 at 12:01AM PDT, and will end on May 7, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT.

PC will start on May 4, 2017 at 10AM PDT, and will end on May 7, 2017 at 1PM PDT.
