At Ubisoft’s E3 Press conference this year they released a lot of information about The Division. For the first time we were shown a high quality gameplay trailer which looked phenomenal. They showed off a lot of automatic weapons that are available in the game as well as a deploy-able turret and remove controlled bomb.
One of the players in the trailer was not playing on a console or PC but he was playing on a tablet. There was no character in-game but a flying drone like device which he could control using the tablet.
We also got to know some more information about the story itself. The whole game is focused around one group, The Division. This group tried to stop a weaponized virus that got released in the United States but they failed. A huge part of humanity got wiped out and now their main goal is to save the people that are still alive and try to fix the whole society.
At E3 some people had the ability to try the same gameplay as shown in the trailer and according to the people that played that demo the gameplay was really smooth and seamless. The controls were very fast and easy to use and the shooting mechanics were great.
Tom Clancy’s The Division will not have any classes in the game. This is because the developers want you to be able to build your character however you would want and not be stuck with a certain class and its own skills. This way there is a much greater diversity of skills but what I am afraid for is that there will be a certain ‘build’ that is just much better than any other combination of skills.
During Microsoft’s E3 press conference they game some more information about the game itself and showed a cinematic trailer which, as usual, looked quite interesting. Then they finally gave out the release date for The Division, March 8, 2016. Not only that but they also confirmed a Tom Clancy’s The Division Beta! This will be a great opportunity to play the game before it gets released And help the developers with improving the game!
Personally I just can’t wait for the game to release. For more information you can always visit Ubisoft’s main website.
