More Free Content for The Division Season Pass Owners Now Available

Weapon skins and high-end crafting items.

112 Comments

In addition to access to all of The Division's expansions, the game's $40 Season Pass gets you "special benefits" every month like free content. Now, May 2016's Season Pass extra content is available.

As announced by Ubisoft on Twitter, up for grabs this month for Season Pass owners are a pair of weapon skins and some high-end crafting materials. You can see this content in the image below.

No Caption Provided

The weapon skins include safari purple and burst mountain, while one of the high-end crafting materials is Division tech. These items were delivered today to all Season Pass owners across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Earlier today, The Division's servers were offline for three hours for regularly scheduled maintenance.

Looking ahead, The Division's next major update, 1.2, is on the way. Ubisoft is not yet ready to share specifics, but it has teased that the update will introduce "significant improvements" for how the loot system works. Specifically, the quantity and quality of end-game rewards will be tweaked.

The Division launched in March and broke sales records. It hasn't been completely smooth sailing, however, as the game has faced a number of bugs and glitches, many of which have been fixed. The developer has pledged to continue to improve the player experience in the future. You can read this post to find out some of the ways the developer is tackling cheating and exploits specifically.

Your game is getting attacked for not having enough content, so you give some minor crap only to season pass owners. Great idea there, Ubisoft. If 1.2 doesn't somehow magically fix things, then the game will be dead by the end of the year.

5 of each crafting materials isn't even enough to make one weapon let alone gear piece and even if it was, you'd get junk rolls, what a waste of. . .*FacePalm* . . .ugh. . .I like how they're calling THIS an "exclusive content drop."

So much potential, wasted.

What a scam, this is pathetic. Zero respect for Ubi left in me after this farce of a game.

@GSGuy321: The 60 was for the game and the 40 was for the 3 expansions. Or did you assume that by getting the season pass you would get every skin or tech for free?

awesome...skins...those are useful...and Division Tech..useful as well...i mean that one DT will really make an impact lol...this game is a steaming pile of crap right now...has potential, but very underwhelming at the moment, especially after end game content kicks in. Has the same problems every game of its ilk has at start (diablo 3, destiny year one)...they just haven't figured out how to balance things yet, and / or have things work as intended all the time.

Too bad the game is still broken. To this day, some challenge modes fail to start.

Is this game even worth playing anymore? Bought it when it first came out and beat it before they released the so called "patch" to fix HE drops and crafting. After reading the horrible reviews on how the patch really screwed up the game, I haven't played it since. Didn't really see the point other than playing in the Dark Zone.

@blprater: That patch didnt fix anything, instead of getting purple you get gold thats junk and might as well be purple, but the good HE drops are pretty much the same, but you can then deconstruct for crafting material which you will need as they made it ridiculous to craft anything it takes ages to get enough to craft a few rolls and then once you get shit as crafting something amazing is hard, you can find yourself grinding for shit HE again, lets hope the next patch actually fixes things

@blprater: No....I was dumb and bought the digital Gold edition on the X1. Talk about a waster for $100. It still had freezing, lag in dz (not my internet) and challenge modes still fail to start.

I think we can safely say the console MMO and MOBA experiment has failed. Please go back to making normal games again.

It's a shallow dull repetitive game that I have not played in weeks to be honest.

(Insert snarky voice here.) Yeah brightly colored gun "Skins".

After a couple weeks of solid play when it first came out I haven't picked it up since. And every update with all it's new balance, drop rate, and general issues each time has not drawn me back at all. I put it down and never really looked back. Too bad to, the original concept seemed so neat. But it's one of the most hardcore-repetitive, loot-stat chasing, mission-rinse-n-repeat game I have ever played.

I think I was doin one of the "Daily" Missions about the 30th or 40th time that I realized.... "I don't want to do this. This is dumb. It'll be the same freaking missions layout and spawn points tomorrow, or the next day, or just another one of the 8 or so Story Missions that get repeated as "Daily" Missions with a slightly harder setting. Over and over and over and over.....etc."

@ltjohnnyrico: But you did pay for it! Season pass states specifically that it includes extra skins and crafting items, which you paid for by buying season pass.

@ltjohnnyrico: I pre ordered a game in-full. It's gonna be free for me once it's released!

Regardless, it was actually never free. Whether I paid at this point or that point, I had to pay.

You're just being purposely difficult. I get it

@ltjohnnyrico: Because you already paid for it when you bought the season pass. If something is listed as part of a package for a purchase and you have to pay money to gain access to said items, that is not free. You paid for it.

@CruiserCaptain: I'm not paying extra for it .. these little bits are free .. if they say in advance with the season pass we will also give out free content every now and then .. its still at no extra cost (Free) .. not really sure why you're that bothered as you don't have to pay any extra for it if you have the season pass whichever way you spin it !!

@ltjohnnyrico: You are kidding, right? You have to see that everything you are getting now is what you paid for when you got the season pass? You are not actually getting anything for free. You have already pre-purchased it when you got the season pass.

It is like when you order something online, pay for it at once even though you are not getting it until next week. The thing was never free, you just payed for it in advance before you got it.

@ltjohnnyrico: I think you have fallen for some pretty obvious marketing tactics. But hey, if you feel that it is free then I guess that is good for you. I think it is bullshit and that is why I do not buy season passes at all. Each his/her own.

@livedreamplay: played the beta and canceled my preorder. Actually the only reason i made the preorder was to try it out via the beta, glad I did, cause I wasn't too interested in playing more destiny. Now enjoying Uncharted 4

@PayneKiller: Same here with the pre-order, but I actually contemplated buying it a few days after launch when everyone was playing it and the hype was enormous. Glad I managed to resist it though. I'm playing uncharted too at the moment. Have fun.
