Tom Clancy’s The Division is shaping up to be one of the best new intellectual properties to be released in this generation as millions of gamers have participated in the multiplayer beta so far. If you are planning on buying the multiplayer-based third-person shooter, we also suggest picking a few other complementary products so that you can get the most out of your time with The Division.
For better or worse, Tom Clancy’s The Division is getting a season pass. For being a subscriber, you will get three major expansions following the game’s launch over a one year period: Underground, Survival and Last Stand. These major packs will be made available first for Xbox One gamers before arriving for the PlayStation 4 and PC 30 days later.
Season pass holders will also get exclusive gear (such as the sawed-off shotgun), outfits and weapon skins. Furthermore, Ubisoft announced that the pass will get other benefits, including exclusive content drops and events, on a monthly basis.
Alternatively, you can also pick up Tom Clancy’s The Division Gold Edition, which comes bundled with both the main game as well as the season pass. You can do so with the following pages: PC version, PS4 version and Xbox One version.
Tom Clancy’s The Division: New York Collapse
If you want to find out more about the lore of Tom Clancy’s The Division, then you might want to pick up Tom Clancy’s The Division: New York Collapse as well. The companion book covers the events that led to the collapse of New York City. The product also comes with several artifacts, including a full map of the city as well as a used transit card.
You can purchase Tom Clancy’s The Division: New York Collapse here.
The Art of Tom Clancy’s The Division
Fans that enjoy the aesthetics of the videogame should consider getting the official art book too. This product will showcase over 300 concept art pieces, images and sketches. It will also come with commentary from the artists and creators of the third-person shooting game.
The Art of Tom Clancy’s The Division is available with this link.
Tom Clancy’s The Division Xbox One 1TB Console Bundle
If you don’t already have a system capable of running Tom Clancy’s The Division (as it will only come out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC), then you might want to pick up the Xbox One system bundle.
The product comes with a Xbox One console with 1 TB hard drive, digital version of Tom Clancy’s The Division, Xbox One Wireless Controller (with the included 3.5mm headset jack), 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold, AC Power Cable and HDMI Cable. You can buy the Tom Clancy’s The Division Xbox One 1TB Console Bundle, if you are interested, with this page.
Being an open-world third-person shooter with multiplayer elements, having a good headset is crucial in the Division. We recommend getting the following if you want one that supports 7.1 Surround Sound at a relatively affordable price: Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 500X Premium Fully Wireless Gaming Headset for Xbox One, PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset for PlayStation 4 and HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset for PC.
Aiming accurately is essential in The Division, especially if you are inside the Dark Zone. If you don’t like the default analog covers of the PlayStation 4 and/or Xbox One, you might want to take a look at some alternatives. This is especially true for the DualShock 4 as the default rubber tends to break down after some usage.
We suggest taking a look at the thumbstick covers from Grip-iT and Ortz as both are not only great in terms of quality, but also quite cheap (not to mention that the two are compatible with both the DualShock 4 as well as the Xbox One Wireless Controller). Check them out with the following links: Grip-iT Analog Stick Covers and Ortz Analog Thumb Grip Stick Covers.
Xbox One Elite Controller
Xbox One gamers may want to check out the Xbox One Elite Controller as well if they want even more customization options. The premium gamepad comes with a set of two interchangeable directional pads, four interchangeable back paddles and six interchangeable thumbsticks. The Hair Trigger Locks should allow you to fire your gun faster as well.
So, while it may be more expensive than the standard gamepad, the Xbox One Elite Controller does offer plenty of advantages if you are looking for a competitive edge over other players. You can find the Elite here.
PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold
In order to take advantage of the online elements of Tom Clancy’s The Division, you will need to subscribe to PlayStation Plus on PlayStation 4 or Xbox Live Gold on the Xbox One (the online is free in the PC version). The good news is that there are other benefits to being a PlayStation Plus and/or Xbox Live Gold member, such as being able to download free games monthly along with exclusive discounts.
So, if you are planning to purchase Tom Clancy’s The Division, make sure to check out the complementary products we listed above as well if you want to get the most out of the multiplayer third-person shooter.
