Free Gear Sets for The Division

January 19, 2016

imageHey agents, Ubisoft/Massive is offering four sets of gear that were previously exclusive to UK pre-orders of The Division. Click the link: and select your platform of choice (uh, that would be XB1 for most of us in this community). The link will ask you to sign into your Uplay account & enter the code ‘AGENTORIGINS’. Uplay will then provide you with a redemption code, and send you a copy of it to your attached email.

You cannot redeem it until the game launches on March 8th! Otherwise, it will just give you an error and possibly void your code. Who doesn’t like free content?

EDIT: Apparently, it’s an exclusive U.S. promo. Uplay is recognizing anyone’s account who is not located in the U.S. & restricting access to the codes.

EDIT #2: Apparently, some people from Canada are able to snag a code. So it may be a North American promo.

    Check out the following live-action vids. Ubisoft is starting to ramp up their marketing for the game!

      I’m surprised that Freddie Wong didn’t direct any of these short films himself even though Rocket Jump actually made one of the films (The Division: Conspiracies). Nevertheless, these films were well done!

    Thanks for compiling the vids into one neat comment.

    I tried the link for the free skins, but before I could choose a platform or log in, it bounces me back to the Home page in both Chrome and Firefox. After half and hour of trying to get in, I figure that it must be a “hidden” link that they didn’t want to release to the public yet. The page only displays for about 2 seconds. Hmm…

    EDIT: According to the reddit thread, I am not the only one. Looks like it is an IP browser filter thing.

      Nope, the link is live, Suns. I already got my code along with many people on subreddit who have also confirmed that they were able to get theirs. Perhaps have Johann & Tim try it in Canada, but I suspect that it’s probably a U.S. promo. The site might be filtering you out because it’s detecting your region. If you email me your Uplay user name & password, I can grab you a code. You can change it afterwards, brutha.

      Yep. Looks like people in New Zealand are having the same problems.

      Ok, will do. Thanks!

      Check your email, Suns! There’s two of them with attachments.

      OT: Make sure to d/l the latest system update because it reinstates whose in a party now. We can once again see who is in the party before joining it.

    Proximity Chat is confirmed in the Beta. Kenny, was there anything we are supposed to do to secure our Beta tickets? Or do we automatically get in since we played the Alpha?

      I read about proximity chat during my lunch. I’m glad that Massive was able to work out the snafu in time for the XB1 beta because it was supposed to be implemented by launch. The Division subreddit has been my second home for the past few months! Lol

      As in regards to the beta, all alpha participants are automatically entered into the upcoming beta. Codes will be emailed next week in time to pre-load the beta by Tues., Jan. 26th. So there’s no need to do anything until you receive that email.

    • January 20, 2016 9:04 pm

      Good, good. Then 2GN (Cornie and I) are all set. And to your comment below, the reddit has really picked up in traffic!

  4. January 20, 2016 6:28 pm

    Meh. LOL

    Going to purchase Far Cry: Primal. Seems like a nice combat heavy caveman epic.

    • January 21, 2016 5:08 pm

      Inflammable materials is a very cool difference, as is the combat and the “pretty”. I will definitely take a closer look once it has halved (or less) in price.

      DOH! It is single player only!?!

      “DOH! It is single player only!?!”- Suns


    • January 22, 2016 12:50 am

      yeah the mp was prety much a bullet point in far cry 4 even though it was fun to play co-op custom maps and some 5v5 versus. It emptied out over time.

      Ubi did the same with Syndicate and so far it proved a wise decision as it is smoother, prettier and has a better story structure.

      I’m buying it day 1 mainly because it has what Ark hasn’t. It can complement it, and vice versa. But probably a better summer purchase at a discount.

    • January 22, 2016 1:24 am

      @Blankman Yeah, yeah, laugh it up, fur ball! 😉

      @frank, agreed, it compliments Ark, and vice versa. It does look very cool!

  6. January 21, 2016 8:37 pm

    More OT

    For those who haven’t/won’t buy the game. Zos was talking about it the other day. I might still buy it at one point.

      Suns, this is also single-player! Bwahahahahaha!!!

    Am actually considering preordering The Division. Which is really truly pointless, since I should be out of the country the week it releases.

    Also, everyone can get The Witcher 2 (not 3) for free for the next few days and play it on the Xbox One.

    The pre-load for the beta will be available 48 hours before Thursday’s beta release for the XB1. The XBL inadvertently had the beta pre-load for Singapore for a brief period today. People switched their region to Singapore on their account and were able to pre-load the 26gb file before MS shut it down.

    The beta codes will be sent to your email that is linked to Uplay. People that participated in the alpha or pre-ordered the game will receive their beta notifications sometime tomorrow, Tues., Jan. 26th. Unfortunately, it seems like Ubisoft is going to cheap out on their server support at 12:01 AM on Sunday, Jan. 31st, like they did for the alpha test. That’s three days of beta play for the XB1, and the PS4 & PC will only have two days. Ridiculous time frame for a new IP that’s “trying” to sell itself to potential customers. Ubisoft needs to get their ish together. It takes $$$ to make $$$. Talk about being ass backwards.

    OT: The Warriors absolutely stomped the Spurs with a final score of 120-90. That’s thirty points! Curry broke Leonard’s ankles without even having the ball.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the Beta. Our school has their entrance exam this week, with marking all day Saturday (after which I have a meeting in the evening). I will try to download it and at least take a peek at the upgrades, but I will not get to play it very much. Regardless, sharing the price with Cornie, unless there are many bad reports, we still plan on getting the game proper come March.

    And YEAH! about the Warriors. They aren’t just really tough to beat, their basketball is amazing to watch. Haven’t even seen the highlights yet, but I was watching the live score updates on Gonna take more than Duncan to fix what isn’t good enough about the Spurs – and being second in the league with their own amazing w/l record, it is not like they are chumps. The Warriors are an historical team.

    Apparently, Aldridge was no match for Green, either. Frenik gave us the heads-up on that one back in October.

    And, since we’re talking sports, I was blown away that the Broncos beat the Patriots. Had I been forced to bet money, without any doubt or hesitation, I would have put it all on NE. I called that one completely wrong. The Broncos defense is amazing, and while that was a well known fact, it was still breathtaking to see in action.

    And I don’t know cats from birds, so I wasn’t in a place to pick a team between the Panthers and the Cardinals, but Carson Palmer dropped the ball, literally, twice, and threw it into the Panther’s hands four times. Lots of people didn’t see that one coming. Did he choke, or was it just the Panther defense that made him look awful? I ask the question honestly having seen nothing but the highlights.

    I am looking forward to seeing that Denver defense play against the Panther offense. I believe (and I don’t think I am taking much of a risk here) that the Panthers will win soundly, though I am hoping for a close one.

    EDIT: I just bought the pass for 12 bucks to watch the Superbowl, other games, and NFL Network. Football is uniquely North American in flavor and it is always “soul food” at this time of year. Just wish those games weren’t on my Monday mornings!!

    EDIT 2: I just remembered, the highlight of the bench Broncos pointing and laughing as Manning ran the ball (for what, the second time in his career?), was EFFING hilarious! Priceless, even.

    Just got my beta code. Gonna download it and give it another shot when it starts on the 28th. Not really going in with high hopes after the alpha though.

    • January 28, 2016 2:43 pm

      I don’t think I can invest time to really have a good opinion after the alpha. I have been watching streams of it, and I don’t think it’s all that different. The game is what it is. Alpha, Beta or Release, is not going to completely change it.

    • January 28, 2016 5:13 pm

      Yeah its pretty much the same exact thing as the Alpha. I never got into the Dark Zone in the Alpha however, and I can say that it is definitely the one bright spot for this game. Its a lot of fun hunting for loot, calling in the extraction and then fighting off hostile players that want to kill you and get your loot. Gun play seems to be a bit smoother in the beta as well.

      Its definitely growing on me now…

    Get ready for this weekend’s beta, agents! Here are the official times of start & finish for the XB1:
    Beta will begin on Thursday, January 28th, @ 4am EST/1am PST, and it will end on Monday, February 1st, @ 6am EST/3am PST.

  12. January 28, 2016 2:27 pm

    hoping the beta is a hit!

    Ark servers have been awesome all morning. Hope the noobs stay in division until June.

    • January 28, 2016 6:04 pm

      Bwahahahahaha! Trollalalalala! Love you, Frenik! Yes, gamers of all creeds win! Gonna make a new post about The Division.

      And though it is apples and oranges, Ark is one of my favorite game of all time. I will be playing it for the duration of this generation, especially as Wildcard has promised expansions.
