CAN’T F*CKIN’ WAIT: The Division

Tom Clancy’s The Division is an upcoming third-person shooter developed by Ubisoft under the Tom Clancy brand for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Announced during Ubisoft’s E3 2013 press conference, the game utilizes the Snowdrop engine to craft an open-world, multiplayer RPG set in a world devastated by a deadly pathogen. Players will have to fight enemy factions, loot abandoned buildings and level up as they explore a ravaged New York City.

“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 is inspired by Operation Dark Winter and Directive 51, real-world events which “revealed how vulnerable we’ve become”; society has become “fragile” and “complex”. In the game, a disease that spreads on Black Friday causes the United States to collapse in five days. The reason for its devastating speed? Germs on money, which on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year in the US, travel like wildfire. The player is part of a group called the ‘Strategic Homeland Division (SHD)’, or ‘The Division’. The group was established to combat threats brought about by the outbreak, and are given direct authority by the President of the United States to do whatever it takes to “save what remains” in a massive multiplayer online situation, pitting them against AI-controlled enemies, as well as other players.
