Ubisoft Offers The Division 2 for Free on PC, Console
The Division 2 is currently free to play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Though the looter-shooter has had F2P weekends in the past, this trial kicked off on April 21 and is currently unlimited. Ubisoft has not shared a projected end date for the trial — or if there will be one.
There are a few caveats, however. The free period is limited to eight hours of playtime, and prospective agents can only reach Level 8. After that, you'll have to pick up a full copy of the game to keep playing. Luckily, all of your progress carries over should you choose to do so.
The Division 2 is pretty affordable as well. The standard edition of the base game is currently $29.99 on the Epic Games Store for PC and a crazy-low $9.90 on the Ubisfoft Store for PC. It's $29.99 on PS4 and Xbox One.
It's worth noting that Ubisoft says that any playtime from previous free-weekend events counts toward the eight-hour-trial, and that any character above Level 8 will be ineligible for the trial.
In our official review, we called The Division 2 "the best looter-shooters in years," adding that it "is an improvement on the first game in almost every way, and it's both a fun game and a satisfying investment."
Aside from the game's solid mechanics, both The Division 2's environments and sound design work in concert to create a larger, more encompassing world than in the game's predecessor, something we spoke to Game Director Mathias Karlson about last year.
Since release, the game has seen the addition of new episodes, weapons, modes, raids, and much more, all of which have kept the community engaged and enticed new players to enlist. Warlords of New York, the game's biggest DLC to date, released on March 3 to mostly positive reviews.
