PS4 free game download: Grab 2019 smash hit at no costs on PlayStation

PS4 owners can tuck into another free game this weekend, courtesy of Sony and Ubisoft.

The latest PlayStation 4 free game weekend kicks off today (October 17) and runs until 9am UK time on October 21.

And this week’s freebie is a big one, as Ubisoft makes smash-hit shooter The Division 2 available as a free download for a limited time.

Better yet, you don’t even need a PlayStation Plus account to download the game.

PlayStation 4 owners can access the free trial by visiting The Division 2 page on the PS Store.

Alternatively, you can grab a free Division 2 download by searching for the game on the PS4 console itself.

Ubisoft announced the good news on Twitter, just hours after the release of the game’s big new content update.

“Looking to recruit a new Agent to your squad?” reads an Ubisoft tweet. “The Division 2’s Free Weekend will allow anyone to play for free from October 17-20!”

In a follow up post, Ubisoft confirmed that the full game will be available during the free weekend, including all the latest content.

Fans will also be happy to hear that any progress made during the free trial will be carried over if players decide to purchase the game in the future.

And now’s the time to make the purchase, because The Division 2 is heavily discounted on the PlayStation Store.

The Standard Edition is down to just £19.99, while the Gold Edition costs £24.99 and Ultimate Edition is £29.99.

A follow-up to the 2016 game set in New York, The Division 2 shifts the action to Washington DC.

“Seven months have passed since a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the world population,” reads an Ubisoft post.

“Society as we know it has collapsed. When the virus hit, The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, was activated as the last line of defence. Since then, they have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains, and keep our civilisation from falling into chaos.

“Washington D.C. was supposed to be the last city to stand against total collapse of the nation, but faced with multiple threats, the city is on the brink.

“For The Division, the stakes are higher than ever – if Washington D.C. falls, the nation falls. Empowered as modern-day civilian marshals, you and your team are the last hope to stop the fall of society after the pandemic collapse.”
