Tom Clancy’s The Division is an upcoming online open world third-person shooter role-playing video game. The game was developed and published by Ubisoft, with assistance from Red Storm Entertainment, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is set to release on March 8, 2016.
The Division is set in a smallpox pandemic hit Manhattan, open world game environment with it’s own destructive environment which are free to be explored by the players. The player’s mission is to restore order by investigating the source of a virus. The gameplay is similar to other third-person-shooters, in which player character can carry three weapons, and explosives like sticky bombs and smart mines to fight against enemies. Players may take cover behind objects during firefights to avoid taking damage from enemies, and to give them a tactical advantage when attacking. As the game is set in a third-person perspective, the character model is visible. As players progress, they earn experience points and currency. They can use these points to customize their character’s appearance, upgrade weapons and gear, and learn new talents and skills. Players have to complete missions to learn active talents such as the ability to throw healing grenades, deploy automated gun turret or use radar pulse, which can tag enemies. The game features a dynamic, time based weather system which may bring benefits or disadvantages to players. For instance, storms can hinder player’s visibility and make aiming difficult. The game also features a day-night cycle which will change the behaviors of enemies in the game.
