The Division is one of the biggest game launches of this year. However, the game had issues at launch which the developers fixed with updates but still gamers are skeptical about the game. Those of you who are waiting to try the game on PC are in luck as the game will be free for the weekend.
Ubisoft has announced that the PC version of The Division will be free for the weekend starting today at 10 AM PST and will end at 1 PM on December 18. Players will have full access to the base game and the additional content updates. However, the DLCs for the game will be off limits.
If you decide to purchase the full game then your progress, that you made during the free weekend, will be carried over to the full game. Also, the game is available for half the price ($25) during this weekend and the Gold edition that includes the season pass is available for $45.
Also, the game is to receive an update this week that will bring DirectX 12 support to the game. According to Ubisoft, The Division DirectX 12 support will provide better optimization for higher resolutions. The developer further noted that there is a known issue where the players are not able to change the brightness with DirectX 12 enabled.
Ubisoft has also announced that it will be hosting another Elite Task Force and this time around it will focus on PvP balancing for update 1.6, and it will start from January 11.
Also, a movie is also in the works based on the game and will star Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain. Gyllenhaal will not only star in the movie but he will also be producing it too.
The Division is a third-person action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft Massive for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
