The Division Heartland was announced last month, and will be a free-to-play game. Set in the same setting as The Division, Heartland won’t need players to have any prior experience with The Division games, and will offer a new perspective using the backdrop of The Division. Going by the platforms chosen for the playtests, it will be coming to PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
The Division 2’s senior game designer Trick Dempsey revealed a few details about The Division 2 to us in an in interview earlier this year, with subjects like how the game is balanced to be played around solo players as well as group players, and how the game’s levels were iterated on by using math and claustrophobia.
