Ubisoft Announces The Division Heartland, a New Free-to-Play PC Game

Ubisoft is working on The Division Heartland, a new The Division game that’s free to play and will release on PC sometime in late 2021 or early 2022.

Ubisoft announced it in a new blog post highlighting changes coming to The Division as a whole.

The Division Heartland is a brand-new experience that expands on The Division world and story but has no barrier to entry.

It’s still a standalone game, so even if you haven’t played previous The Division games, you can still jump in and enjoy Heartland.

What is The Division Heartland?

The Division Heartland is a new, standalone Division game.

It expands The Division universe, but requires no previous knowledge to enjoy.

Since it’s free-to-play, we can likely expect continuous updates once it releases as well, as with The Division 2.

Currently, The Division Heartland is only announced for PC, though that may change closer to release.

The Division Heartland Beta

The game is still too early in development for a proper beta.

However, Ubisoft announced an early The Division Heartland testing phase that’s taking registrations now.

How Does The Division Heartland Tie In With The Division 2?

It’s too early to say, but Ubisoft did mention new content is coming to The Division 2, The Division is coming to mobile devices, and there’s a The Division Netflix film in the works.

With all that, there’s bound to be some kind of crossover involved.
