Uplay owners can test the mode before it's officially out.
Ubisoft has released a new trailer showing off 'Tom Clancy's The Division's 'Survival' expansion. The second of three expansions for Ubisoft's third-person shooter shows a new side of the open-world game. The 'Survival' expansion adds in the titular mode that fittingly has players trying to survive a blizzard. Players will be stripped of their gear and have to journey to the center of Manhattan in order to retrieve an important package.
The mode will matchmake up to 24 players into the same map, and these characters will all attempt to survive the harsh conditions. To do this, players will have to manage several different in-game systems. These include: warmth, hunger, dehydration and sickness. While the new mode will use the game's main map, there have been new hideouts added and heavy snowfall has changed the environment.
PC owners that also own 'The Division's DLC pass can try out the mode now on the game's Uplay testing server.
While no release date or pricing details were given for when 'Survival' will officially release on Steam and Xbox One, it's confirmed to be coming in 'The Division's 1.5 update. It will arrive on PS4 one month later due to Ubisoft's marketing agreement with Microsoft.
