News just in on the next instalment of a great ongoing franchise in the Tom Clancy series and games
In 2015 Tom Clancy’s the division will be hitting the shelves of game stores and supermarkets.
The game will be based
“On Black Friday 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, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, the agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.”
So from the press release we know that the story of the game will mostly be based around the breakdown of society and the aftermath of the events that occur.

Take Back New York
Welcome to a new generation experience in a persistent and dynamic environment, where exploration and player- progression are essential. Teaming up with other Division agents, your mission is to restore order, investigate the source of the virus and to Take Back New York.
A Living and Breathing World
Game Changing Skills
Choose and upgrade your skills smartly and synergize with your team mates to increase your chances of winning in combat. Use the ECHO skill, a data collection tool that renders moments frozen in time, to learn valuable information about your immediate environment, find hidden loot, and help you to uncover the truth behind the pandemic.
Enter a universe where the time of day and weather conditions deeply impact your gaming experience. Use the environment to a strategic advantage to dominate fights and ambush your enemies. Utilize your gas mask to provide protection from the virus and upgrade it to enter the most highly contaminated areas.
New York City is being overrun by hostile groups that are trying to take advantage of the crisis. One such group is The Cleaners, who travel throughout the city wherever the contagion levels rise. Wearing hazmat suits and wielding flamethrowers, the Cleaners leave nothing but ash in their wake.
The Agents of the Division
Trained to act independently from any chain of command, Agents are autonomous and adaptive, working alone or in small groups. They are the last line of defence, activated when all else fails to save what remains.
As a member of The Division, harness state-of-the-art technology: both networked and prototyped. Loot fallen enemies and upgrade your gear. Customize your character and your back-pack, your lifeline in the event of a collapse, and communicate with the other agents at all times with your smart watch. Customize and level up your weapons. The choices you make will help forge a recovery or plunge the city deeper into chaos.
Social Seamless Multiplayer
Seamlessly team up with friends to take down your enemies and achieve group objectives. Raise the security and morale levels of the surviving citizens of New York to unlock and secure bases of operations. Fight through a city where danger can come from anywhere and anyone, at any moment.
Revolutionary Companion Gaming
On your tablet, join your friends in real-time gameplay. The app gives you a bird’s eye view of the battlefield, the ability to aid your allies in combat by attacking enemies or identifying targets and raining destruction down on your enemies.
Powered by the fully new gen Snowdrop engine, Tom Clancy’s The Division sets a new bar in video game realism and open- world rendering. Experience a chaotic and devastated New York like you’ve never seen it before.
Looking at the features this will be interesting to see how Rainbow Six Division comes out as Ubisoft have broken away from the normal mould when it comes to game mechanics and play style of Rainbow six, granted Rainbow six has changed a lot from the first game I have played of the series and has become more FPS based then the planning stages that you went through on the original games, which I will be honest I do miss in Rainbow six franchise.
