Today during their E3 press conference Ubisoft revealed details on the planned content releases for Tom Clancy's The Division, as well as more information on the game's success.
Julian Gerighty, creative director for Ubisoft, said that more than 10 million players have spent more than three hours a day roaming the streets of New York since launch.
We knew that the Underground expansion, which was detailed earlier in the day at the Microsoft press conference, would be released on June 28 for Xbox One. PlayStation 4 and PC players will be able to play starting on Aug. 2. In a press release issued today, Ubisoft gave a few more details on how the game will expand gameplay options for solo players and groups.
Underground brings a host of new features and loot, beginning with the expansion’s eponymous mode, which puts Agents into subways, tunnels, and sewers generated with random layouts. Additionally, Underground features a new Incursion called Dragon’s Nest, which will be bigger than those found in the previous updates. Set in Hell’s Kitchen, it features the Cleaners as a primary enemy as they continue their haphazard and dangerous attempts to burn the virus out of New York City.
As a show of thanks for the game's success, and to celebrate Ubisoft's 30th anniversary, when Underground is released Ubisoft Club members will have access to three new outfits from the Tom Clancy universe — Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six.
There was also a new trailer for the second for-pay DLC pack, called Survival, described as a mode with endless replayability. While we still don't know much about how, exactly, that expansion will play it does seem to move The Division's storyline forward. In the trailer, New York is set upon a fearsome blizzard. It is a time of scarcity and struggle, but rumors of a cure push Agents further than ever before.
