UPDATE: The Division 2’s free weekend is live on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
“Play now the Division 2 for free on PC – PS4 – XONE!” Ubisoft confirms. “Access the full game and keep your progression.”
ORIGINAL: The Division 2 is getting the free-to-play treatment on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
This means PlayStation and Xbox users can check out one of this year’s biggest games, completely free of charge.
The only drawback is that the game is only free-to-play for the duration of the weekend, after which you’ll have to pay.
“Free Weekend starts tomorrow!” reads a Ubisoft tweet. “Play the Division 2 for free from June 13th to June 16th.”
If you live in the UK, The Division 2 free weekend kicks off at 8.01am BST on June 13.
Whether you’re playing on PS4, Xbox One or PC, the trial ends just a few days later at 7.59am BST on Monday, June 17.
Download the free trial is just a matter of visiting the PSN Store for PlayStation 4, UPlay for PC and the Xbox Store for Xbox One.
Unfortunately, however, Ubisoft has a spot of bad news for Xbox One users.
While PS4 owners don’t need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play the trial, an Xbox Live Gold subscription is required for Xbox One.
On the plus side, anybody wishing to upgrade to the full version can pick up the game at a reduced price.
The Standard Edition is down to £39.99 on PS4 and the ever so slightly cheaper price of £38.99 on Xbox One.
And don’t worry about losing any save data, because all progress carries over should you upgrade.
The free trial comes hot off the heels of Ubisoft’s E3 2019 conference.
Ubisoft unveiled Watch Dogs Legion at the event, as well as Roller Champions, Gods and Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine.
The company also outlined its plans for The Division 2, confirming that future DLC would be set in New York.
That’s on top of plans to release a new Raid and lots more content throughout the year.
