The first two expansions for Tom Clancy’s The Division will be 30-day timed exclusives for Xbox One, publisher Ubisoft confirmed today.
Ubisoft announced developer Massive Entertainment’s schedule of planned updates for The Division last week, laying out a slate of three paid expansions — Underground in June, Survival in the summer and Last Stand in the winter — along with free content updates. Ubisoft has yet to announce individual pricing for the expansions, but all three are covered by the game’s $39.99 season pass.
A promotional video for The Division that GameStop released in February pointed out the downloadable content’s timed exclusivity, which Ubisoft originally announced during E3 2014. We asked Ubisoft last week for details on the exclusivity, but the publisher didn’t provide them until today.
Microsoft’s exclusivity agreement with Ubisoft covers The Division‘s first two expansions, Underground and Survival. Those add-ons won’t be available on PlayStation 4 or Windows PC until 30 days after they launch on Xbox One. The third expansion, Last Stand, will debut on all three platforms simultaneously. In addition, Ubisoft confirmed today that the two free content updates announced last week — Incursions in April, and Conflict in May — will also go live at the same time for everybody.
