You can play The Division for free on PC this weekend

The Division is free to play in its entirety on PC this weekend, Ubisoft has announced.

Ubisoft’s open world third-person shooter is downloadable right now from uPlay and yours to keep until 9am GMT on Sunday, December 18.

Any progress made during the free trial is transferrable to the full game, including all loot, character progress and mission unlocks.

If the trial happens to draw you in, The Division is currently 50 percent off on PC, with discounts applied to both standard and gold editions.

The Division is also set to receive an update on December 22 for PS4 to add support for PS4 Pro. Ubisoft hasn’t disclosed exactly what the patch will do, but with any luck it’ll add a noticeable visual improvement.

We quite enjoyed The Division when it launched earlier this year, scoring it 8/10 in our review.

“Like Destiny, The Division ruthlessly exploits the pleasures of the RPG, MMO and shooter to create one hideously addictive feedback loop. Combine that with the excitement of demanding co-op play and it can be an unstoppably thrilling game.”
