The division is a new Ubisoft game from the mind of Tom Clancy creator of splinter cell and rainbow six, due to be released for the next gen platforms Ps4 and Xbox one. In this game you immerse yourself in a frighteningly chaotic and devastated New York City, where a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, The Division agents are trained to operate independently of command, as all else fails. Fighting to prevent the fall of society, the agents will find themselves caught up in an epic conspiracy, forced to combat not only the effects of a manmade virus, but also the rising threat of those behind it. When everything collapses, your mission begins. The game will be an online, open-world Action RPG where exploration is key and your life will depend on your skills, weapons and trading, in a dynamic environment. The game is powered by Ubisoft new game engine Snowdrop, which takes advantage of next-gen consoles with dynamic global illumination, stunning procedural destruction and an insane amount of detail and visual effects. Now is the beginning of a new co-op style where you will be able to join your friends in real-time gameplay with exclusive characters via your smart phone or tablet. The app gives you a bird’s eye view of the battlefield, the ability to attack enemies and to place target for your allies or enhance their capabilities. The game is set to be released sometime 2014 for both the PS4 and Xbox One.
