The Division 2 was thoroughly solid when it launched almost a year ago, so being able to grab it for 95 percent off is obviously a properly good bargain.
The promo is obviously designed to coincide with the news of the new expansion, Warlords of New York. You won't get Warlords with the $US3 promo, but there's plenty of content in the base game already.
The deal's available through the Ubisoft Store's US page. It's not listed on the ANZ Ubisoft store at the time of writing - the standard edition of the game for PC is still a full $89.95, although the console versions are selling for $35.97 and the "Warlords of New York Edition" on PC is going for $59.95 right now. But if you've got a VPN that connects through the US, you'll be able to take advantage of the $US3 deal here, as long as you're fine playing on PC.
The Division 2 is headed to New York. That's the big news from Ubisoft's announcement on Wednesday morning, and if you want to see how Warlords of New York is shaping up, here's 10 minutes of gameplay.
It's a good time to jump into The Division 2 too, with Ubisoft Massive reinventing the game's approach to endgame content and its loot. Some of the changes in Warlords of New York were being teased to players back in September - without the context that it'd be part of a standalone expansion.
The makers of The Division 2 have waited until nearly the last possible moment to give their frustrated player base a heap of potentially good news. After spending weeks failing to announce a release date for an expected small extension to the game, they’re revealing today that that mini-expansion—a free, two-mission excursion to Brooklyn’s Coney Island—is but a prelude to much more content, which is all coming out less than three weeks later.
We'll keep an eye on the Ubisoft ANZ page today and let you know if the deal is replicated on the Australian store and, if so, for how much.
