Ubisoft has announced Tom Clancy’s The Division, a new online open-world action RPG from Massive Entertainment, coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2014.
The game is set in a decimated New York City, three weeks after a lethal virus released on Black Friday has swept through the city. One by one, basic services have failed. Society collapses, the President invokes Presidential Directive 51, and The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents, is activated. These agents lead seemingly ordinary lives, but are trained top operate independently of command in emergency situations. When society collapses, their mission begins.
“Our goal with Tom Clancy’s The Division is nothing short of completely changing the way people play online RPGs,” said Fredrik Rundqvist, executive producer, Ubisoft. “With the power of next-gen consoles behind it, The Division puts players in the middle of breathtaking, persistent multiplayer thriller in which they will explore, fight and work together as modern society collapses around them, all with the authenticity for which Tom Clancy’s games are renowned.”
