Year 5 ‘The Division 2’ Roadmap and The Division Heartland Gameplay Details Revealed

Ubisoft’s “Division Day Stream” outlined the many things players can look out for from The Division Franchise.

For The Division 2, Year 5 will kick off in June, but players can already get their hands on an upcoming new mode, Descent, by participating in a public PC test server that will be available tomorrow, April 21. From April 25 to May 9, the Resident Evil Leon Kennedy RPD outfit will also be available to all players who log in during that time.

The full list of content for each season in Year 5 includes:

  • Season 1: Broken Wings (June): This new season brings a new twist on Manhunts and introduces a new game mode titled Descent, a rogue-lite mode available for free to all Division 2 players when Year 5 begins. Players will also see the continuation of a multi-season rebuild of the Castle Settlement that will bring the devastated landmark back to life with a renewed purpose. As a part of the premium pass for Season One: Broken Wings, players will be able to unlock pieces of a Splinter Cell-themed outfit to help Fifth Freedom their way throughout DC and NYC.
  • Season 2: Puppeteers: A challenging new Incursion will take Agents on a venture out to the Meret Estate for another confrontation with the Cleaners.
  • Season 3: Vanguard: Agents will go back to New York City for the holidays and discover new revelations about Aaron Keener and his Rogues.
  • Season 4: Black Diamond: New story DLC will be available that adds new zones, new main missions, and a whole new endgame structure.

Each season will also continue to introduce new Manhunts, Leagues, and Events. Players will need to own the Warlords of New York expansion in order to access all of the new content aside from Descent mode, which will be open to all The Division 2 owners.

More details about The Division Heartland, the new survival-action multiplayer shooter set in small-town America within the Division universe, have also been revealed. Interested players can sign up for future closed tests on the official website.

Check out the overview below:

Heartland takes players to Silver Creek, once a pleasant town in the American Midwest, left in ruins following the spread of the Dollar Flu. Silver Creek is a hostile environment filled with deadly contamination, roaming enemy hordes, and the looming threat of sickness and dehydration. In The Division Heartland, and for the first time in The Division, Silver Creek’s Base of Operations is a shared space. Silver Creek’s Rockit Rink is an abandoned roller skating rink where players will be able to socialize, form a group, customize their character, and prep for the next Operation.

Each session begins and ends in the Base of Operations, and each time players exfiltrate they will take back materials and gear they’ve collected to better prepare them for future days in the town. Players will use the Base of Operations to fabricate supplies and ready their go-bag preparing for their time out in the town. Before each session, they can select between three Classes: Weapons Expert, Medic, and Survivalist. Each Class brings a unique ability, and in a squad, each truly shines when complemented by the others. When they venture out during the daytime, players will be scavenging for supplies as well as preparing to survive the night. At night, Silver Creek becomes much more tenuous, with PvEvP gameplay forcing players to think quick and potentially work together to make it out alive with their loot intact.

Ubisoft’s upcoming free-to-play mobile game, The Division Resurgence, will be having its next phase of testing this summer in select territories. Interested players can sign up for future closed tests on the official website.
