The Division: Heartland closed beta gameplay footage leaks on-line
A bunch of gameplay footage from the recently-announced The Division: Heartland has leaked on-line. Beta testers are below NDA, and Ubisoft is shortly cracking down on the movies. The unique video footage uploaded to Vimeo has since been eliminated. However that is the web, and just like the lethal virus in The Division, the movies are spreading.
The leaked footage is grainy, low-res, very laggy, and from the attitude of somebody who is usually exploring and messing round with controls and emotes. Not precisely the sort of materials Ubisoft needs to point out off. However hey, emotes!
We did not know a lot about Heartland earlier than this—besides that it needed to do with The Division—and now we will see that it is a third-person cowl shooter with random loot drops. So it is lots like The Division, unsurprisingly. The non-player enemies proven within the leaked footage are known as Pilgrims, and are available straight out of The Division 2, with enemy varieties that vary from grunts to heavily-armored elites. Brokers can equip two weapons and a melee weapon, and carry out dodge rolls and sliding runs—together with capturing whereas sliding a la Apex Legends.
An apparent distinction between Heartland and the opposite Division video games is the agricultural Silver Creek map, which is paying homage to State of Decay or PUBG. Between missions, gamers spend time within the Rockit Rink, a neon-soaked, transformed skating rink that serves as the bottom of operations for brokers in Silver Creek. Like bases in earlier Division video games, it is stuffed with NPCs with upgrades, crafting, gear, and quests. The menus additionally verify the existence of a Battle Cross.
One leaked video, shared by Skyleaks through Twitter, reveals lead designer Taylor Epperly introducing gamers to the closed beta, and describing what Heartland is all about.
“On this free-to-play, open-world, survival-action shooter, we transfer from the massive cities to a small city American metropolis known as Silver Creek,” says Epperly. “You will come to know Silver Creek and its mysterious story by way of a co-op PvE mode known as Expedition.”

Expedition sounds just like the opening tutorial. Epperly subsequent describes a “PvEvP mode”, known as Storm, that includes 15 groups of three gamers every, for 45 whole gamers. “Each modes can have you scavenging, exploring, looting, combating, and surviving, all whereas avoiding essentially the most aggressive and unpredictable virus contamination The Division has ever seen.” Sounds a bit like Scavengers, probably.
Mockingly, the video ends with Epperly reminding the viewer that beta testers are below NDA, and should not share any of this data.
Primarily based on these leaks, it looks as if Heartland is increasing on The Division’s PvP Darkish Zone, maybe with eyes on video games like Escape from Tarkov. And perhaps it will be one other swing on the battle royale style: Ubisoft’s final try, Hyper Scape, launched final 12 months to little fanfare.
