The Division Gets More Tactical in New Screens

By Marc Hollinshead, 5 years ago
The fragile and complex world of Tom Clancy's The Division sounds fascinating so far. The unique mid-crisis setting of New York encourages players to get their hands dirty and invites them into a world full of conflict, exploration, and customisation. These newly released screenshots give us a bit more insight into what that conflict looks like in action, as well another peek into the bleak looking New York.

As well these shiny new screenshots, Ubisoft have answered a few questions from the community on PvP, co-op, and character creation in the game for that extra bit of clarification.

The Division is an RPG, so we really want the player to feel unique; there will be tons of possibilities to customize your agent (thousands of weapon types, skill combinations, gear and much more).

The Division is an online, open world RPG experience where exploration, objectives and player progression are all essential. You can team up with a group of friends in co-op and jump in and jump out at any time. In certain areas, you can also seamlessly engage in PvP and experience suspenseful scenarios where danger can come from anywhere and anyone.

Player vs. Player combat will play a very big role in our game. The choices you make as a Division agent can either spur a recovery or plunge the city further into chaos. The people you meet in certain areas of the game can either be your best friends or your worst enemies. So you’ll constantly be making decisions that will impact the world around you.
Although I'm happy that we're in a world that isn't on the brink of complete annihilation, I'll gladly jump into the world of The Division when it releases sometime next year.

You will usually find him getting stuck into story heavy action-adventure games, RPG's and the odd quirky title when he isn't raving about Dark Souls and Mass Effect. Outside the world of gaming, Marc attends and helps out in his church on a regular basis and has a not-so thrilling job in a supermarket.
