Tom Clancy's The Division

A wave of online console-focused shooters is forthcoming and at the forefront of them all is Tom Clancy's The Division. Teased with some of the best looking demo footage seen yet on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Ubisoft may have set expectations high for this near-future shooter where players form squads and struggle to maintain order in a post-apocalyptic society.

After a highly contagious disease spreads starting on Black Friday, the United States Government collapses almost immediately. It's discovered the disease spreads through the use of cash, and no the disease isn't known as greed... I think. The President activates a secret force of citizens, The Division, or bands of citizens able to act without direct leadership, to contain the fall of civilization and help rebuild the city of New York.

How will players do this? Largely through third-person combat and a mission-based structure almost certainly designed to be a time-sink. Players will customize their character heavily, including picking one of several classes. They'll pick a weapon and armor and then take that out into the wild against both AI and real-life opponents.There are RPG mechanics for Division players to customize their own playstyle, but mostly there's just a lot of shooting.

The Division is planned for release in 2015 for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. After Watch Dogs' visuals were heavily downgraded on the modern generation of platforms The Division has not been shown to the same degree. This is leading some to say The Division will face a similar amount of downgrades.
