The Division Heartland was announced back in 2021, and the Ubisoft-published, Red Storm-developed free-to-play shooter is supposed to release later this year, for PS5 and PS4. There is a pretty good chance we will see it this weekend at Ubisoft's Forward event.
It appears someone might have jumped the gun, though, as a page for the game briefly appeared on the Ubisoft Store, giving us some pretty juicy details and screenshots before being quickly kiboshed by the publisher. Thankfully, VGC managed to secure some details, including the game's official description:
“Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is a free-to-play survival-action multiplayer shooter set in small-town Middle America. Play as one of six agents and select between three classes each match, all with their own perks and skills.”
“Fight together in 45-player PvEvP Storm Operations against a group of dangerous Rogue agents, an aggressive faction known as the Vultures, all while surviving a lethal virus. Complete PvE missions, gather gear, activate alerts, and prep the battlefield in Excursion Operations.”
It honestly sounds pretty cool, if perhaps a little formulaic. Fans of The Division and The Division 2 will likely lap this up as these Excursion Operations sound like venturing into the Darkzone in those games, which was an undeniably awesome idea. We also got some screenshots, which you can check out below.

As someone who was born and raised in small town America, I kind of dig the idea of everyone killing each other in random American town streets, feels just like home.
Nice. Looking forward to this. I don´t think it can beat Division 2 gameplay wise but it looks really interesting.
I honestly love The Division 1 & 2. So i’m really hoping this one is a hit.
For me Division 2 is one of the best games ever made so I am keeping a keen eye on this one. I'm prepared for disappointment though.
Ubisoft, any chance of giving the fans what they want with a Division 3?
I wanted to like the first Division but the combat just felt so unbalanced and frustrating where enemies were total bullet sponges but could kill you in a few shots. Division 2 thankfully fixed almost every problem I had with the first one and having the game set in D.C was also memorable as that is rare in any video game and I actually lived there for a period and could appreciate how accurate most of the streets were modeled.
Pass, I didn't enjoy first game that much but I thought second one was really good, especially when I spent just 3.5 euro for it back in 2020. This one is hard pass however, just not interested in any spinoffs because it won't have offline aspects of the game and will be purely online focused.
The Division should be renamed 'Bullet Sponge - The Game'
I absolutely loved the dark zone in the first game with a few friends.
Nervously trying to get past other groups of players or trying to get your loot out without getting jumped.
I wish they would confirm it takes place in Indiana or not. I don't know why I'm stuck on this, I just want to be right about something for once this year lol
Absolutely loved the first games, especially 2 having grown up in DC was crazy to see it in in such a way yet still know where I was most of the time. Look forward to whatever they have in store and hoping its crossplay to be able to play with the youngins!
I preferred the first game over The Division 2. A snowy NYC is cliché but I loved it.
This. Came right after forcing myself to finish Origins. Recently finally tried Odyssey and uninstalled because of its terribly written, terribly playing snorefest of a soulless game.
Yesterday deleted Division 2 and broke its disc in half lol.
Wasn't even mad. Just had a realization that I'm wasting my life playing these garbage Ubisoft games that require players to put so many hours in their broken aass garbage games. Good riddance. Never again
That setting was the only reason I could play it.
The sound design was fine, you could actually sometimes get immersed in it.
This piece of crap Division 2 though? You'd be lucky if the sounds even load in this garbage game
@BoldAndBrash Yeah, I remember all the ambience being broken on it which totally ruined the immersion. It would be absolutely smashing It down but deadly silent!
I will definitely try it out.i enjoy the division.i play the division 2 also.the division heartland sounds interesting.word up son
I don't know, did myself a favour as it's gonna save me a lot of time by not playing it. Second time trying the game after uninstalling it once before.
I did try Fenyx Rising, but stopped playing that one as well. It was the most fun one out all the above, but still...
These games aren't made for fun it feels like. They're manufactured in a manipulating way to keep the player addicted, but their lacking gameplay, world, immersion and game/ mission design doesn't support that many hours being wasted. I always give them the benefit of the doubt, but never again.
I got Tsushima day one and I liked it a lot! Wished it was more grounded, slower and less arcady maybe, but definitely great!
For a second I thought it's new expansion for the division 2, I enjoyed that game (with it's new york expansion) so I want more of it, playing it only for the single player though.
