Ubisoft and developer Red Storm Entertainment have given us a closer look at The heart of the division releasing a cinematic trailer for the upcoming game at the publisher’s Split Day event. The trailer introduces Silver Creek, the country town that will serve as the backdrop for the free-to-play title, along with a new villain named Killian Tower who had disowned The Division and killed his entire team. Players will take control of an agent who tracks Tower to rural America in an attempt to find out why his former commander went rogue.
The companies have yet to announce a release date for the action-survival shooter, but fans can sign up on the game’s official website for a chance to participate (and get five friend invites) for an upcoming closed beta. . When the game comes out, it is expected to be available on consoles, PC, and the cloud.
Ubisoft has also revealed its roadmap for the division 2 Year 5, which will begin with the launch of the first season: Broken Wings, in which players will have to rescue civilians taken hostage. Broken Wings will introduce a new free rogue-lite mode called Descent. Up to four people can play the mode together, though they’ll need to start without gear or any specializations available in the main game. While the first season of the online game isn’t available yet, players can check out Descent mode on its public test server starting today.
Finally, Ubisoft has announced that the next testing phase for The resurgence of the division The mobile game will take place this summer. Fans can sign up for a chance to participate right now, and those who do will get access to a special Joint Task Force cosmetic outfit when Resurgence releases
