To kick off things at gamescom, Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s The Division will not be limited to just the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but will also be shipping for the PC. Kudos to Ubisoft for listening to fan feedback on this! If you missed out on our E3 coverage for the title, here’s a little bit about the title before we get to the shiny new trailer:
The Division takes place in New York three weeks after a lethal virus, released on Black Friday, has swept through the city. One by one, basic services have failed. Society has collapsed into chaos. The President invokes Presidential Directive 51, and The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives, Division agents are trained to operate independently of command in this type of emergency situation. When the lights go out, their mission begins.
In a Tom Clancy’s universe dedicated to realism, players can explore the once-familiar streets and landmarks of the Big Apple, now decimated by looting and overrun by clans that will do anything to survive. From Central Park to the subway to the Statue of Liberty, nowhere is safe. Discover a persistent, online, open-world New York where exploration, combat, and RPG player-progression are essential.
The game is coming courtesy of Massive Entertainment in Sweden and is scheduled for sometime in 2014. Check out the trailer for a sneek peek at the game in motion.
