Tom Clancy's The Division - Expansion I - The Underground

Overview -

'The Underground' is the first paid DLC in 'Tom Clancy’s The Division' season pass. It follows the large 1.1 update and a bunch of other free stuff. 'Underground' includes, among other things, its own Incursion, randomized levels, and four new gear sets. It arrives alongside Update 1.3, which includes the new shared social space, The Terminal.

Video Review


There are a couple of novel locations in the randomness of the Underground, including a mission where we fought at a nightclub, 'John Wick' style, but with less punching. The vast majority of these locales are quickly forgettable, however. It’s dingy, squalid and destroyed, like most of post-Green Poison Manhattan. As I mentioned in my write-up for 1.1, the armor set pieces might have nice bonuses but look kind of blasé.

Audio Review


The only recognizable changes in the audio are the short bits of dialogue introducing the Underground and the very brief surface mission preceding it. The sound effects and music remain the same as the base game - very good.

Final Thoughts

Perhaps season passes have jaded me after all these years, but this is exactly the kind of filler DLC that pads out most season passes. It doesn’t change much, doesn’t add much, doesn’t take any risks. There is a familiar fun in the arcade sensibilities of the Directives, but the novelty doesn’t last very long. 'The Underground' is worth trying out if you’ve committed to a pass, but certainly not worth buying on its own.
