“The one-year anniversary is a celebration of everything we’ve done in the first year,” said Creative Director, Julian Gerighty, echoing a sentiment by developer Bungie over its RPG-shooter, Destiny.
“We also want to turn ahead and look at Year 2 and how we’re going to support the game for everyone, for free,” Gerighty continued.
Year 2 will be made up of two new free expansions, available later in 2017. The first will be “an event system that drives players to activities that feature modifiers, leaderboards, and unique vanity items that will only be available through these activities.”
The second will be “more content-focused,” but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will include new missions or a new campaign.
In terms of freebies, The Division players will unlock 200 premium credits and a celebratory emote over 9-16 March.
From March 9-16, players of The Division on all platforms can unlock 200 premium credits, a celebration emote and a 2X multiplier for high-value targets. A 2X multiplier on field proficiency caches will also be in effect from 11 March.
