In a move that will definitely not rub some people the wrong way at all for any reason whatsoever, developer Ubisoft just released a blog post stating that the first two paid expansions for Tom Clancy’s The Division will have a 30-day exclusivity for players on the Xbox One.
The first expansion, titled ‘Underground‘ and coming at some point in June, is set in the many underground tunnels and subway stations of Manhattan and has teams hunt and fight the dangerous enemies lurking there in close quarters as both a lone wolf and a valuable member of a squad.
The second expansion, titled ‘Survival‘ and is set to release somewhere in the summer of this year, puts players survival skills to the tests as they collect valuable resources in hostile territory. For more information on The Division‘s post-release content, you can check out an article we wrote right here. These expansions and more are available in the game’s season pass but can also be purchased separately.
Ubisoft notes that, while these 2 paid expansions will be exclusive to Microsoft’s console for 30 days, the planned free content updates will be coming to all platforms at the same time. The final paid expansion called ‘The Last Stand‘ will also be released on all platforms simultaneously when it gets released at some point during the winter of 2016.

Earlier today we reported on a huge datamine done by some diligent Redditors which you can read here, and we’ve got a first impressions after yours truly played the closed beta which is available for your perusal here.
