The Division PC

At E3 on Monday, Ubisoft announced that it had begun development on Tom Clancy’s The Division (TCTD), an openworld Action RPG to be released on the next-generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Division will be set in New York three years after a lethal virus swept through the city decimating the population. New York has been looted by its survivors now banded together into clans that will do anything to survive. Society collapses in chaos. The President invokes Presidential Directive 51 activating The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents.

As a Division Agent specially trained to operate independently of command in special emergency situations, players will have the opportunity to explore the ruins of New York including the subway, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty. Exploration of open-world New-York will be mixed with combat and RPG player-progression. Tom Clancy’s The Divison will also include multi-player online co-op gameplay. Players will be able to team up with friends, jumping in and out of games to help complete missions and trade.

The Division will be powered by Snowdrop, Ubisoft’s brand new gaming engine tailor-made for next-gen consoles. Snowdrop will feature enhanced detail and visual effects, dynamic global illumination and stunning procedural destruction.

Ubisoft is also developing a companion game to The Division for use on smart phones and tablets. The companion game will give players a bird’s eye view of the battlefield as well as the ability to place targets and enhance capabilities for allies.

Also on the docket for future games in the Tom Clancy franchise is Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist which will feature a modern-day special-ops storyline. Splinter Cell Blacklist is being developed by Ubisoft Toronto.

      You are correct, Johan. That is indeed the case. It was a simple mix-up. We will edit it very soon. Thanks for the catch!
