    Tom Clancy's: The Division has been announced by Ubisoft. The post-apocalyptic online RPG takes place three weeks after a global pandemic devastates the population. The game was announced during Ubisoft's E3 press conference, alongside a video demonstrating an early level set in New York.

    Players will have the ability to scan dead bodies for causes of death and can access skills via modified wrist watches. The demo sees players attempt to secure a police station using cover tactics and co-operative gameplay. It ends with a standoff against other players, presumably teasing the game's seamless multiplayer integration.

    The Division - Ubisoft ask PC gamers to show interest, petition almost hits its goal.

    It seems that Ubisoft wants to promote a possible PC version of The Division in a really clever way. During this year’s E3, the French company announced that this great looking game would be coming on XBOne and PS4. Even though it did not rule out other platforms for a future release, the company stated that it was currently focused on the console versions. However, during Machinima’s interview the developers of The Division said:

    The devs said that PC gamers should go ahead and ‘sign petitions, get on the forums and post their requests‘. There is already a petition for The Division PC that has almost hit its initial goal of 7500 signs. We don’t know the amount of signs that are needed for this petition to be successful, but we are pretty sure that a petition that has been signed up by 10K PC gamers is a pretty good number. Those interested can sign up the petition here.

    Truth be told, though, we are a bit puzzled by Ubisoft’s strategy. The French company was satisfied with Far Cry 3′s sales on the PC, and it claimed – in the past – that the PC is its lead development platform. Therefore, it’s a bit odd that this MMO game – and since its an MMO, it almost felt a given that it was suited for the PC – is not officially coming to the PC.

    Did Ubisoft suddenly change its strategy? Is PC not anymore the company’s lead development platform? Or is Ubisoft trying to promote the PC version of The Division via a cheaper way, while at the same time present ‘fake excuses’ for a possible delay?

    The Division - Might make its way to PC after all.

    One of the highlights of E3 this year was Ubisoft's reveal of Tom Clancy's The Division, but it came with a glaring omission. Its release was announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but no mention of PC. That might change very soon. When talking with IGN, a Ubisoft representative commented:

    This was in reference to an online petition in favor of a PC release -- a cause that's more than 111,000 supporters strong at the time of writing. The spokesperson went on to state:

    Hopefully The Division does eventually end up on PC; the game looks good enough that it should be in as many peoples' hands as possible.

    The Division - New multiplayer details, drop-in co-op explained.

    Ubisoft impressed onlookers with its E3 reveal of the open-world online RPG, The Division, but admits that it left many with questions on how the game will actually work. Senior community developer Antoine Emond has moved to clarify the game's always-online co-op and PvP mechanics in a recent community Q&A. He explained:

    Speaking more specifically on player-versus-player scenarios, Emond explained:

    Emond promises that extensive character customization and collectibles will offer every player a sense of uniqueness. He added:

    The game, which has been in development for a little over a year for Xbox One and PS4, takes place in New York following the release of a devastating manmade virus. Players step into the boots of agents from The Division, a classified unit fighting to prevent the collapse of society.

    The Division - Is a real, true, RPG experience.

    The Division was one of the surprises of E3 this year, and VG247′s Sam Clay was able to sit down with Massive Entertainment’s creative director Nicklas Cederström and production director Petter Mannerfelt to discuss the online, open-world RPG’s key game pillars. Despite the what if story scenario, it all remains grounded in reality and ties into Tom Clancy’s Clear and Present Danger. Watch the video below.

    The Division is slated for PS4 and Xbox One in 2014. It may come to other platforms.

    The Division - Supporting Companion Character, Tablet Play Explained.

    Tom Clancy’s The Division developer Ubisoft Massive has told VG247′s Sam Clay all about the shooter’s revolutionary companion apps, which will see players getting involved via Android & iOS. During the clip, the developers told us that from a tablet or supported device, players will be able to view the game running from a top-down perspective as an overhead drone. You will be able to upgrade your drone and earn unlocks just like levelling up a character in the game.

    Speaking of The Division’s companion app, you can check out Sam Clay’s video interview with Ubisoft Massive on how it lets players pilot drones over the world’s map using a tablet or other device. Elsewhere, Massive shed light on its consultation with various individuals to make The Division’s survivalist New York setting as authentic as possible:

    The Division - Begins recruiting closer to the end of 2014.

    During Ubisoft's first quarter investor call today, CEO Yves Guillemot narrowed the release window of open-world Xbox One and PS4 RPG The Division to late in 2014. Guillemot said:

    He added a follow-up clarification that he meant for the calendar year and not the fiscal (which would have meant Jan.-Mar., 2015). Today's call emphasized Ubisoft's next-gen strategy, which will be a heavy investment and focus on open-world games with multiplayer components.

    The Division - Behind The Scenes.

    Ubisoft has released a new video that goes behind the scenes at Ubisoft Massive, the Swedish studio making upcoming Tom Clancy game The Division. The video covers the run-up to the online action RPG's reveal at E3 last month, where it wowed attendees and online viewers during Ubisoft's press conference. In development for a little over a year, the game takes place in New York following the release of a devastating manmade virus. Players step into the boots of agents from The Division, a classified unit fighting to prevent the collapse of society.

    Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said on Wednesday that The Division release date will fall closer to the end of 2014 than the start, possibly lining up the well-received title as a major Christmas release.

    The Division - No unique features planned for PS4 or Xbox One currently.

    The Division developer Ubisoft Massive is bringing the game to both PS4 and Xbox One but says it has no current plans for unique content for either version, stressing that it wants the same content on both formats. Speaking with OXM, game director Ryan Bernard said:

    Given Ubisoft’s long history of pushing out format-exclusive DLC and bonuses in its games there’s every possibility that The Division will have some sort of unique content on a particular format.

    Tom Clancy's The Division - Companion Gaming Trailer.

    The Division will feature co-op mechanics that will allow a player using a tablet device to assist those engaged in battle in the main game. In features seeming not dissimilar to those of Battlefield 4, a player with the companion app installed on a tablet device will be able to join games as a remote drone, healing allies, identifying enemies and even calling in missile strikes in real time using a top-down map view.


    The online third-person shooter is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4 and, as confirmed on Tuesday, PC.

    The Division - Dev feels sense of community in online games is dead.

    The Division developer Ubisoft Massive hopes to re-establish a sense of community among online gamers, something studio member Ryan Barnard feels is dead. Speaking with OXM, Barnard said:

    The Division is indeed an online experience, one that will see players collaborating in a ravaged America, both in the game-proper and from a distance using the companion app.

    The Division - Finding food and water is important part of the game.

    The Division developer Ubisoft Massive has confirmed that while your solider won’t suffer from hunger or thirst, scavenging for clean water and food within its post-apocalyptic cityscape is an important aspect of trading. The team has also shed new light on the shooter’s classless progression system. The Division’s design director Axel Rydby said:

    Rydby added that while the game sets your soldier off with a kit bag full of basic supplies, where you go from there – in terms of scavenging and progression – is up to you. he explained:

    The Division is very much a game founded on the idea of choice and putting players in the shoes of someone dealing with the fall of society. To that end, how your soldier levels up and gains new skills will not be bound by class, but rather, an evolution throughout the game based on your choices and ability. Rydby was then asked if New York’s abandoned cars could be used by players, to which he highlighted even more choice:

    On the issue of cars, game designer Mathias Karlson added:
