The Division Heartland was announced back in 2021, and the Ubisoft-published, Red Storm-developed free-to-play shooter is slated for release later this year, for PS5 and PS4. There’s a pretty good chance we’ll see it at Ubisoft’s Forward event this weekend.
It looks like someone may have jumped the gun, however, as a page for the game appeared briefly on the Ubisoft Store, giving us some pretty juicy details and screenshots before it happened. Quickly kiboshed by the publisher. thanks, VGC Managed to secure some details including the official description of the game:
“Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is a free-to-play survival-action multiplayer shooter set in small-town Central America. Play as one of six agents and choose from three classes in each match, all with their own perks and skills.”
“Fight together in 45-player PvEvP Storm Operations against a group of dangerous rogue agents, an aggressive faction known as the Vultures, all while avoiding a deadly virus. Complete PvE missions, collect gear, activate alerts, and prepare the battlefield in tourism operations.
It honestly sounds great, if maybe a little formulaic. Fans of The Division and The Division 2 will likely embrace this because this tourist operation feels a lot like venturing into the Dark Zone in those games, which was an undeniably brilliant idea. We also got some screenshots, which you can check out below.
