Ubisoft hosted a special event last night which covered its Division series. Not only did the developer touch on new gameplay updates and content for The Division 2 but Ubisoft also detailed content surrounding its upcoming free-to-play shooter, The Division Heartland.
The Division Heartland has been in the works for some time already. The game was announced back in 2021 and has undergone multiple closed beta tests. We have also covered the game a few times when gameplay leaked online subsequent to these tests.

In a new gameplay deep dive, Ubisoft has highlighted some of the features you can look forward to in The Division Heartland. Unfortunately, we still don’t have a release date for the game and Ubisoft is still riding its “PC closed beta” wave which has been its focus since its announcement in 2021.
Of course, we do know that The Division Heartland is releasing on PS4, PS5, Xbox and PC. The developer doesn’t seem to be ready to open up the closed beta tests to other platforms at the time. The new gameplay content did, however, finally give players a look at some mechanics so you don’t have to rely on those leaked videos anymore.
In The Division Heartland, players take on the role of a Division Agent flown in to protect the town of Silver Creeks. The game features a large open world to explore, survival mechanics and of course, the series’ well-known PvPvE gameplay.
Ubisoft says The Division Heartland takes place at the same time as the first two games. It follows the story of a little town that falls to ruin when the Green Poison is released to the world.
The gameplay deep dive is an extensive look at some of the missions you’ll undertake in the game, how the survival mechanics work and a closer look at the world you can explore. Ubisoft says The Division Heartland closed beta sign-ups are now open but at the moment, they seem restricted to certain regions. However, you can register here ahead of the test opening up to our region.
