Ubisoft hasn’t said much about The Division Heartland since its announcement back in May 2021, but Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson has exposed some of the free-to-play shooter’s purported game modes, map details, enemies, and other details in a new exclusive report.

According to Henderson, The Division Heartland features at least two modes, the primary one being “Storm,” a PvPvE mode that challenges players to survive, loot, and extract from Silver Creek, the game’s massive, virus-contaminated map. “Excursion,” The Division Heartland’s other mode, is a PvE mode that is designed to prepare players for Storm.

Serving as the game’s central hub is the Base of Operations, an abandoned ice rink that allows players to customize loadouts, sell weapons, select daily and weekly missions, and more. It even features a small arcade with older Ubisoft games, although it’s unclear whether they will be playable or not.

Henderson suspects that The Division Heartland will be released by March 2023.
