Gamers will get the chance to access “The Division” for free this weekend.

Gamers can play “Tom Clancy’s The Division” for free this weekend. Ubisoft has even revealed the schedule of the global event on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Ubisoft is giving more gamers the chance to access the online-only “Tom Clancy’s The Division” game for free this week. The French video game publisher has announced the Free Weekend promo for the open world third-person shooter and revealed the different times console and PC players can play the game without charge.


For U.S.-based players, they should take note of the specific times that they can access “The Division” for free. Below is the official schedule of the long weekend promo in the Americas.

  • PS4/Xbox One - 4 May, 12 a.m. PDT until 7 May, 11:59 p.m. PDT
  • PC - 4 May, 10 a.m. PDT until 7 May, 1 p.m. PDT

Since this is going to be a global event, Ubisoft has also revealed the schedule (found below) for other parts of the world.

Europe & Middle East

  • PS4/Xbox One - 4 May, 7 a.m. UTC until 8 May, 7 a.m. UTC
  • PC - 4 May, 5 p.m. UTC until 7 May, 8 p.m. UTC

Asia (Japan) & Oceania

  • PS4/Xbox One - 4 May, 7 a.m. UTC until 8 May, 7 a.m. UTC
  • PC - 4 May, 5 p.m. UTC until 7 May, 8 p.m. UTC

According to Eurogamer, this promo will give players free access to the standard edition content of the game, regardless if they are playing alone, in co-op or in the competitive Player-versus-Player Dark Zone. Also, the Free Weekend event is a way for Ubisoft to lure more players into purchasing the game. For players who will be picking up the full game, the progress they made this weekend will be carried over to their purchased copy.


The publisher is discounting the full game to make the deal even more tempting. The original price of “Tom Clancy’s The Division” is $49.99, but players can get a standard copy of the game for $19.99 from the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store and Steam starting this week until May 15. The gold edition has also been discounted to $31.49 or $35.99 from $89.99 depending on the platform, as pointed out by Polygon.

Expansion Packs

Meanwhile, Ubisoft has vowed to bring new content to the game in the near future. This year, two expansions are scheduled for release, and both will be made available to players free of charge. Creative director Julian Gerighty has also teased that fans can expect more story content to be added alongside the second expansion pack.

The official description of Ubisoft’s online-only, first-person shooter reads:

‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ takes place weeks after a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. One by one, basic services fail and in only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, is activated to save society. In this immersive online open world action RPG, discover a hostile and dynamic environment where exploration and player progression are essential. Team up with other players to investigate the sources of the virus and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.
