Last Stand, the 3rd DLC for Tom Clancy's The Division will release tomorrow along with update 1.6. In addition to the DLC, new players can get a taste of the core game with a free trial starting up. The trial gives full access up to level 8 or 6 hours of gameplay, and all progress will carry over to a purchase of the game. Both the DLC and free trial will release simultaneously across all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
After a rocky launch there have been significant changes to the Division and hopefully the free trial might work to re-ignite the player base in a type of game that requires a rich player ecosystem to thrive. There is a really clever world in play powered the lore surrounding the experience, so much so the film adaptation is still moving forward.
The Last Stand DLC is available as a standalone purchase or included with the Season Pass. The DLC adds 8v8 gameplay, a new Incursion, new events, weapons, and a legendary mode to crank the difficulty to 11. The launch trailer is below and press release after that.

When the situation in the Dark Zone spiraled out of control and all semblance of civilization collapsed, the Joint Task Force had no choice but to withdraw from the area. In the chaos of their departure, they left behind important tactical terminals – SHD tech data relays loaded with operational information – and now rogue agents are closing in to capture them. In Last Stand, players will join a team with seven other Division agents on a mission to prevent that from happening and ensure the Division agents regain control of the situation.
Last Stand introduces players to a new way of experiencing the Dark Zone through a session-based adversarial game mode featuring clear objectives and win conditions while incorporating key elements of the Dark Zone such as PvE enemies and landmarks. Players will be on a team of eight Division agents fighting against a team of either Rogue agents as they attempt to capture the tactical terminals. Last Stand will also include a new incursion, Stolen Signal.
The free Update 1.6 will release alongside Last Stand and provides robust, new content for existing players including an expanded Dark Zone map with three new areas unlocked, new Contamination events that take place in an underground location in the Dark Zone, new exotic weapons and landmarks, Dark Zone leaderboards, and the new Legendary mode which provides an increased challenge for the top players of The Division.
