Ubisoft's big IP surprise at their E3 conference ended being Tom Clancy's The Division, an online open-world action RPG for the Xbox One and PS4 (where you and your friends) become a "classified unit of self-supported tactical agents" out to restore some order in New York. You see, The Division takes places three weeks after one very bad Black Friday shopping weekend where a lethal virus sweeps through New York and basically devastates the whole city. Basic services have failed, and rampant looting and rioting have reduced New York to ruin.
That's where you step in: as an operative of The Division, you've been trained to respond independantly to precisely this sort of emergency when law enforcement fails. You're no space marine, but you'll still make use of some nifty gadgets like the smart watch used to communicate with your team mates and get your bearings. You'll customize your agent with weapons skills and gear which you must loot, find and craft; you are a self-supporting agent after all! You'll need to make use of all these tricks of the trade as you investigate the cause of the virus that devastated New York in the first place, while neutralizing some now very hostile elements.
Tom Clancy's The Division is currently scheduled for launch some time next year for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
