Ubisoft Announces Tom Clancy’s The Division
Ubisoft today announced the development of Tom Clancy’s The Division, an online, open-world action RPG for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Division will arrive in 2014.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is being developed by Massive Entertainment, the Sweden-based Ubisoft studio known for the World in Conflit series.
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.
