Tom Clancy's The Division Heartland is a free-to-play multiplayer shooter with extraction elements coming to PS5 and PS4, and we just got our best look yet at the game yet with a crash course in how to survive the under-siege rural town of Silver Creek.

Heartland is a PvPvE sandbox, meaning players can team up to take on other players or work together to earn gear and other rewards. In addition, AI-controlled enemies will further complicate matters, meaning you will want someone to watch your back.

On top of that is the inclusion of extraction-style gameplay elements, which, while popularised by PC titles like Escape from Tarkov, is something that has featured in the series' awesome Dark Zones since the first Division game launched. Heartland takes this mechanic and goes big with it, meaning other players might be eying that fancy new gun of yours.

We also saw the game's cinematic intro, which sets up the stakes quite nicely, and you can check it out below:
