In terms of killer video game deals, it doesn’t get much more impressive than Ubisoft’s free weekend for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. From now until March 2 you can download and play a free trial version of The Division 2 on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

You won’t need anything extra to access The Division 2 free weekend on PC or PlayStation 4. Xbox One owners, however, will need to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

The entire game is available to play during the free weekend period, and progress will carry over to the full game should you choose to purchase it.

Ubisoft made that decision pretty easy thanks to a hilariously steep discount on the base game: 95% off, which equates to $2.99 for a well-reviewed multiplayer action game that released just last year.

The Division 2 has received numerous post-launch updates and free expansions since release. The first paid expansion, Warlords of New York, is releasing next week on March 3. It adds a new story, an extended endgame, and a return to New York with an increased level cap to 40. Purchasing the expansion offers an instant boost to level 30 so you can drop right in to the new content.

The Division 2 free weekend is going on now. It’s rated M for Mature.

During the Ubisoft E3 2019 press conference, developer Massive Entertainment revealed their DLC plans for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. The Division 2 DLC will include three free episodes throughout the year and into 2020. Year 1 pass holders will receive the DLC a week before launch.

Episode 2 Pentagaon: The Last Castle (Fall 2019) adds three new story missions within the Department of Defense headquarters. It will also add The Division 2’s second 8-player raid, Operation Dark Hours, where players travel to a foundry to take on the True Sons.

Episode 3 Coney Island: Homecoming (Spring 2020) brings it all back to the setting of the first The Division, New York City. Specifically, Coney Island, where someone is trying to spread a new virus to wipe out the rest of humanity.

To get more people interested in The Division 2, Ubisoft is hosting a free weekend this weekend, June 13-16 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Players will be able to keep their progress should they choose to purchase the game afterward.

Ubisoft Donating Over $500,000 for Notre Dame; Assassin’s Creed Unity Free on PC

Posted by | News, PC | No Comments

Earlier this week the world stood shocked as one of the most famous landmarks in the world, the Cathedral at Notre Dame in Paris, France, suffered a devastating fire. Donations from individuals and corporations have been flooding in to repair and rebuilt one of our most iconic landmarks.

French game studio Ubisoft has pledged €500,000 (about $562,000) to aid in Notre Dame’s restoration.

“As the smoke clears on the events that unfolded on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris, we stand in solidarité with our fellow Parisians and everyone around the world moved by the devastation the fire caused,” states the press release. “In light of Monday’s events, we will be donating €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of the Cathedral. We encourage all of you who are interested to donate as well.”

Additionally, Ubisoft is giving away Assassin’s Creed Unity for free on PC, via UPlay. The catch is, well, you’ll need a UPlay account. The free giveaway is also only available for one week, now until April 25.

Assassin’s Creed Unity released in 2014. It took place in France during the French Revolution era of the late 18th century. Notre Dame is a fully explorable location with Unity. Many famous historical landmarks like Notre Dame are painstakingly modeled to be exact replicas of their real world counterparts.

If you’re interested in donating, the French Heritage Foundation has set up an online form for tax deductible donations.
