The Division 2: How to Get Early Access
free DLC episodes. The Year 1 Pass does grant players some exclusive content, but the story episodes will be available to everyone that owns The Division 2, not just Year 1 Pass owners. However, those that do have the Year 1 Pass will be able to play the DLC episodes a full week before everyone else, so it still may be worth purchasing for hardcore Division 2 fans. Some Division 2 players may not be happy that Ubisoft is letting some players pay for early access, giving players able to spend more cash on the game a three day head-start. While The Division 2 is largely a PvE experience with story missions, eight-player raids, and the like, the game also has its fair share of PvP elements as well, including the infamous Dark Zone. By giving certain players a head-start, they could have an advantage over those that join the game on Friday when it has its proper launch. However, it’s unlikely that Ubisoft or any other major publisher will change its model of giving players who pay more early access to online games like The Division 2. It’s apparently proven to be a lucrative business model, as the practice is becoming more common with the biggest third-party releases. Regardless of whether or not it’s in the best interest of the community to have paid early access periods for games like The Division 2, the game is available to consumers right now. Those interested in paying the extra cash can jump into The Division 2‘s online world and explore Washington, D.C. to their hearts’ content. The Division 2 launches on March 15 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
