The Division PC

[adsense250itp]Tom Clancy’s The Division will release for PC in addition to the previously announced versions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, publisher Ubisoft announced.

The Division is an open-world action RPG set in New York three years after a lethal virus swept through the country on Black Friday. The city has been looted by survivors, who have banded together to form clans that will stop at no cost to survive. A top-secret unit of tactical agents known as The Division is activated by the president under Presidential Directive 51 in order to save the city.

Agents serving as members of The Division are highly trained operatives designated for special emergency situations. Players will take on the role of an agent of The Division as he explores the ruins of real-world New York environments such as the subway, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty.

Complete details on The Division have not been announced but the vast open world encourages players to explore and earn upgrades via combat through an RPG-like player progression system.

As players explore the world of The Division, they will experience jump-in, jump-out multiplayer experiences both cooperative and competitive. The Division is a unique multiplayer experience that will also encourage players to trade items amongst themselves. Multiplayer will also include the use of additional devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Ubisoft developed a new engine called Snowdrop to power the game and other next-gen titles.

The Division was originally announced during Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 in June. The title is expected to release sometime during the fourth quarter of 2014.

For more information on The Division, check out Gaming Illustrated’s exclusive interview with producer Fredrik Rundqvist and game director Ryan Barnard and more information about the game’s debut at E3.

Ubisoft released a brief trailer featuring Rundqvist announcing the game will be on PC. The video can be viewed below.
