Some stores seem to have holes like a sieve. Now Ubisoft has given up another game that’s centered around The Division: Heartland.
In fact, the Ubisoft Store itself was once again the source of the current leaks, because there was an entry for Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland for a short time. The entry has since been deleted, but as is often the case, vigilant users have been faster, so that information is now circulating.
Remember: The Division: Heartland is a free casual two-player game from The Division that was announced a while ago. There is no exact date for the game yet, but at least “Coming Soon” in the store gave hope for an early release. It might be announced on September 10th during the upcoming Ubisoft Forward Livestream, who knows.
The description doesn’t tell us much about what’s new: “Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is a free-to-play multiplayer shooter and survival game set in a small Central American town.”
Apparently, the game will have two game modes. Storm Operations appears to be a PvPvE mode for up to 45 players, where you face rogue agents known as Vultures, but you also have to deal with a deadly virus. On the other hand, outings seem to send you on PvE missions where you collect equipment, activate alarms, and prepare the battlefield, whatever that is supposed to mean in the end.
According to the entry, you’ll take on the role of one of six agents from three different classes, each with their own skills and perks.
