Call it the biggest Ubisoft surprise at this year’s very big E3 show. Toward the end of the pre-E3 media briefing, Ubisoft’s CEO stepped back onto stage for a final time to announce just one more game: Tom Clancy’s The Division. Cue thunderous applause, followed by lines wrapped around the booth for the next three days, all to get a fleeting glimpse at The Division in action.

Tom Clancy's The Division - Grand Central Station

We’ve walked you through the gameplay (Tom Clancy’s The Division – First Look at Genre Redefining Action RPG) and showed you the game in action (The Division – E3 Gameplay Video). But there’s so much more to this innovative next-gen open-world action-RPG. So we did what any gamer with an all-access E3 pass would: We infiltrated and interrogated the dev team – and we’re back with some intense new intel on what’s shaping up to be one of the most thrilling games of 2014. Our findings below…

World in Mid-Crisis

 
Despite being hit with a bio-terror attack… despite having a city in lockdown… despite calling in the big guns to take back New York, there’s hope. “A big part of the game will be restoring the infrastructure of New York,” says Game Director Ryan Barnard. “So the players will actually see the impact of what they do in the game. They’ll fix New York, which is in this ‘mid-crisis situation’ where communication, law enforcement, power and water are all failing.”

Tom Clancy's The Division - concept art

That term – mid-crisis – is key to the game’s setting. Things are bad, but they can come back. In that way, The Division’s New York is both familiar and alien: familiar because it’s set in an iconic and recognizable city in the very near future; alien because of the crisis – but New York is never so far gone that players don’t feel like they can turn it all around. “You’ll be able to see how you basically reconnect areas of New York that have lost power or lost water back to the grid and get them functioning,” Barnard says. In the E3 demo, for example, we witnessed once such event: securing the police station. In The Division, these events chain together to help the city come back alive.

“We’re not a post-apocalyptic game but we’re also not stopping something before it happens,” Barnard continues. “The virus that started the downfall has already happened. It’s a new way to experience the world: while it’s in collapse. I haven’t seen a lot of games tackle this kind of mid-crisis setting.”

Classless Characters

 
Although the E3 demo shows the players adhering to general RPG archetypes – Nick is the damage-dealer, Bronson is the heavy, Megan is support – we also catch a moment when the team literally switches up skills on the fly. This is a key pillar of The Division. “We don’t have hard archetypes in our game,” Barnard explains. “If you play RPGs, you know a lot of time there will be a healer, DPS and tank. We want that trinity, and that holy trinity is important for any RPG in general. But the way we are doing ‘classes’ is different.”

As you play the game, you’ll level up and acquire points you can spend. You can then use those points to basically spec yourself into a role, but those choices are totally open, totally up to each player, and totally changeable. “So in the first 15 minutes of the game, we’re not asking you to choose what you are and how you want to play The Division. You’ll discover how you want to play while playing the game.”

Communication and teamwork are key, as showcased in the E3 demo. Barnard points to the moment when Nick changed his specs to do more damage, after Megan told her fellow agents that she just loaded up her group healing. It’s all about synergy, Barnard says. “How your Division agent and mine work together is very important. Being open and not being class-locked will allow you to go back to your skills and talents and make adjustments.”

First-Class Second Screen

 

Like many next-gen games, The Division has a robust companion app. This one, however, promises to go far beyond what we’ve seen so far in a second-screen experience. “It’s something we’re really, really proud of,” Barnard beams. “It’s where we’re really setting the bar for next-gen games. Our companion gaming is real-time simultaneous gameplay on the tablet. You will be able to play as a drone and join a group, just as if you’re another player. You have your own persistence within the drone and have progression and skills and talents, a lot like the main game. So it’s not just a fluffy armory or an application. It’s a real game client that you can use to interact with the game itself.”

Tom Clancy's The Division - Companion App

In a behind-closed-doors demo at E3, we saw the app in action. Not only did the drone serve as an eye in the sky – spotting and tagging hard-to-see foes – but it was able to buff allies (increasing their offensive damage) and debuff enemies (decreasing their shields). And heal, of course. Through its actions, the drone can also build up a resource meter, represented in this demo by an orange bar – and when the bar was full, the drone was able to launch a devastating missile strike from above.

The companion app is fully real-time and can be played anywhere there’s an internet connection.

Together or Alone

 
First, it’s important to note that The Division is fully playable solo. (“It’s a wonderful single-player game!” Barnard promises.) So you lonely types, go on… play it as you like. But for the rest of us, The Division promises a rich, varied and seamless multiplayer experience that includes co-operative tactical action, factional conflicts, and full-on player-vs-player (PvP). “What a lot of games do in this genre is split it,” Barnard says. “So I play my single-player experience and then I’m kind of done with that part of the game. Or I go play multiplayer or PvP. We want to approach this differently. We want to make it part of the journey and make it part of the main experience for the game.”

Tom Clancy's The Division

A few examples from the E3 demo: When the Division agents peer down into those underground tunnels, they’re noticing a group event they can join. However, securing the nearby police station is more “critical,” so they ignore the event for now. Also, after securing the police station, the agents need to complete the sequence with what’s called an extraction. This begins after they exit the station via the back door and Megan shoots a flare in the air. A countdown begins… but the flare draws the attention of other nearby players, who rush to the area to (we’re guessing) snag the goodies the Agents earned during the event. This is one example of the PvP that can happen on the fly in the game. And while we’re told you can’t play as an unfriendly faction, we do know faction gameplay is huge in The Division – and we can’t wait to learn more about how it unfolds both competitively and cooperatively.

Tom Clancy's The Division

Finally, the game will have a fully functional black-market economy. “You’ll be able to craft new weapons and items for yourself or your fellow agents, or put it on the market,” Barnard says. “The market will take a cut of it, of course. But having a very deep economy is important, so players have activities that aren’t always just about fighting.”

The Beginning

 
“There is an end game,” Barnard promises. However, The Division will continue to be playable beyond the story’s ending. The team isn’t talking about any of that just yet, but the opportunity to extend this game beyond the finale or outside of New York is entirely possible.

    I love how Ubisoft is pushing tablet apps to compliment their games. Ghost Recon Network, Far Cry 3, soon The Crew etc. My only question is, during E3 they showed an iPad. As someone who refuses to buy an Apple product will they continue to support Android with these apps also? I love being able to modify my weapons in Ghost Recon on my Nexus 7 and then come home from work and see them in action
    • ChevelleLover’70 on June 17, 2013
      I think the way these games will have that second screen feature is through an app like Xbox's SmartGlass, as for the PS4, you will have to own a PS Vita. The plus to that is you can take the game with you though... I already got SmartGlass on my Galaxy! I also am very excited for more information on this feature and this GAME! What a new look on our society, just like WATCH_DOGS. Ubisoft has my money!
      • DSR on June 17, 2013
        Sony already said they will release an app for iOS and Android. VITA is for remote play.
        • wolfking2010 on June 22, 2013
          lets just hope that Sony makes the app available to all android devices not just the ones Sony is affiliated with.
          • brock on June 27, 2013
            Sony is known for letting people use aftermarket parts and devices not made by them, for example, you want to put a new harddrive in your ps3, you can do that, any brand

      Yeah I have an add on to this app thing. Can I just play the drone on my computer instead of having to play on a mobile device. And if I can't do they have it for microsoft mobile devices?
    • Mike McGuire on August 27, 2013
      They better, I ran out and bought a galaxy tab 2 after e3 just to play this game with! In so excited for this game! All their other apps have been available on android so I have no doubt that this will be too. It makes no sense financially to make it ipad only. In just hoping that it's not only on ipad and Microsoft surface because I want toplay on my note 2 and my tablet. Make it happen guys, ive already got many people excited for this game who haven't heard of it yet, in making a branch for on down to play so please let us have more than 2people per lobby, keep. I the good work I can't wait to see what. You come up with

    • MoHa on July 1, 2013
      The one thing that really made me look at the screen of my laptop while my mouth was wide opened, was playing as a drone while in the game!!! Simply Amazing!!!
  3. Charlie Peat on June 17, 2013
    What perplexes me is why they havn't mentioned a PC release at all! Especially with a petition with almost 75,000 signatures. I hope they listen to their fans.
    • Casey on June 17, 2013
      I heard they're going for 500,00 or something like that? I hope you guys get it thought, that be awesome!
      • gunnar on June 27, 2013
        the largest one (i have found) is at 115,000. i just cant effort a new console. money or space wise. just simpler to have one machine that does all i need. college work, movies, games etc.
        • GuitarGuy on July 6, 2013
          ill sign that potition even though i wont get it for PC. Everyone needs to get this game.
        • UbisoftAlltheway on January 5, 2014
          in the division website they say they will do it for PC I think not 100% but yall might want to check it out
    • Mark Lumb on July 3, 2013
      Look, if they don't release a PC version they will aggravate a whole bunch of fans and also make a lot less money. I for one won't be getting a next-gen console for at least 2 years so the PC crowd will be a massive help to this games development and release.
    • Kyle on October 6, 2014
      PC is 100% confirmed

    • Harry on June 18, 2013
      What are you going to do, play it on console? $100-120 Membership a year. For a server of max 32 people. Oh how PC is so crap :( - No membership and servers that can hold over 64 people. Idiot
      • RonDo on June 18, 2013
        I am not sure for what you want to pay $100 to $120. Costs for MP on consoles is about $50 a year and you can get it even cheaper. And who told you that only 32 players-server are available, or 64 player would be available on PC?
      • Branden on June 18, 2013
        None of the services cost $100 per year or ever have, are you braindead or just an idiot? The max so far on any device has been $60 per year. Also, nobody said anything about the max amount of players, nice job with the assumptions.
      • Trevor Thomas on June 21, 2013
        Yeah. I'm sorry, but ton of MMO games on PC charge $15 a month versus $7 for Xbox and $5 for PS4. And this is only for one game while the console gets the whole service. And this game isn't coming the consoles in which the PC has been superior too. This is coming to Xbox One and PS4, which are remarkable machines if you haven't noticed. And plenty of games are coming out for them that have more than 32 players AND 64 players so please. The Elder Scrolls Online? Most likely Battlefield 4? Warframe? Even DC Universe Online was able to operate on the PS3, don't disclude Final Fantasy XIV by the way, OH and Final Fantasy XI which came out on the the PS2. So please tell me how consoles can't handle more than 32 players. Please. Idiot
        • Nodbon on August 16, 2013
          remarkable machines? HA, xbox one and ps4 are only remarkable machines when compared to their predecessors. and i have a feeling those low to mid range ( hell a mid range pc makes consoles look like low end crap) remarkable machines will have alot of over heating problems, i bet alot of ppl will haft to mod the cases with more fans, and only adults and some teens actually keep the dust from building up in vents
      • Alex on June 29, 2013
        Are you daft? It's an open world, not limited to 32 players. Also, XBL and PS+ are $60 per year.
        • Brandon on June 30, 2013
          Their not both the same and its not like defiance. It's open world sure but it seems their "seamless" multiplayer has lots of unanswered questions. If we get to play in NY its big but if alot of players are playin in new york wouldn't it be like the average working citizen walking around? Streets would be full if everyone stuffed in the same server. Trust me, sometimes you want 64 servers.
      • lolz on July 14, 2013
        PC player has a look at console game, PC player gets boner for console game, PC player proceeds to talk of how crap consoles are...hahahahahahahahahahahaha makes sense oh superior one lololol.
        • Troll on July 27, 2013
          Lol look at all the nice things we got the last few years you getting boners and hard feelings over one game, more or less. Would be cool if it came to pc if not though titty
        • Common Sense on July 30, 2013
          Being its a console game and a PC player likes it means nothing.
        • Bigger Troll on October 10, 2013
          Lol Consoles? arent they just glorified Pc's, especially the next generation.They have a CPU Check, They have a GPU Check, They have a HD Check.Seems to me they are really Pc's in a smaller box that fit in your living room. Check
    • Troll on July 27, 2013
      So when you (ps and xbox )guys whine and bitch about everything then its okey but when we ask for something you start crawling out of the wood work and put your hands together and say pc this pc that. Just remember without the pc, consoles how they are today would not have existed.

  10. Devil_Inside on June 18, 2013
    I don't get it about pvp. If you're a group of agents trying to save the city, and there are other groups of agents trying to save the city, why are you fighting?
    • shane3x on June 18, 2013
      Basically, as society collapses the government doesn't have central control so as a result part of some secret government directive allows these stand alone cells to operate independently and do whatever they seem fit to restore order. Now how this directly fits...hard to say right now but I'd imagine when you have numerous groups operating independently of each other they aren't all going to agree from time to time or miscommunication mistakes them for enemies,
    • Conor on June 19, 2013
      They said that will be explained in the story, as to why agents are fighting each other
    • Brandon on June 30, 2013
      just because you have the same objective doesn't mean you agree on how others do it. plus if someone got your favorite gun you want, its not like they can't respawn. KILL EM AND TAKE IT! basically what government does anyways. They want your land or guns they just gotta drop an executive order.
  11. Rich on June 18, 2013
    It looks amazing. I would like to voice my desire for a pc version as I am primarily a pc gamer.Also, while that video looked amazing, I have serious concerns that only specific buildings will actually be accessible. If this is truly open world, with many players occupying it, limiting us to only a handful of accessible buildings in our immediate areas (respectively) will be a major letdown and significantly damage the wonderful dynamic opportunities this game is capable of.I am very impressed with what I have seen, but I would welcome more information on these 2 points.
  12. Ray on June 18, 2013
    Can we get more gameplay? or what were they really playing this game on?
    • GuitarGriff on July 6, 2013
      they were playing it one the ps4
      • gdavid on December 24, 2013
        I believe you are mistaken. Almost all, if not all, games are made on pc. Even if they are not released on pc, they are made on pc with console specs. Thats why every launch you hear about games not looking as good as advertised. During the videos I watched, I saw no button commands relating to the ps4 or xbox one. I know it would be nice to say it was run on a console because it really looked amazing, but history speaks a different language. I own an xbone, I love the machine, just as gorgeous as ps4, but as much as i would like to believe xbox games are showed using the xbone, they simply arent. There is nothing to implicate the demo was using ps4 or xbone, especially when 90 percent of games shown for those consoles are pc's downgraded to console specs. This is not fanboy talk, I hate pc with a passion, but im a realist and am not afraid to tell it how it is. Im sure the games will look amazing on all systems.
  13. finn on June 18, 2013
    I hope they make all their apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 tablets. If not a lot of People won't be able to use these apps.
  14. Raymond Wold on June 19, 2013
    I have a very strong feeling that this is going to be the best game ever created. If you question that statement, all I have to say is this. You'll see.

      I agree if you mean best so far but best ever? This gen just gettin started.

      The game might come out for PC but it wont come out for PC at the time of the game release i am guessing don't take my word for it, But i do agree with you PC is the best especially what the Graphics Cards do to make the game make for realistic.
  20. Alex on June 19, 2013

    Hey Ubi, I have to laugh as you're saying post-finale the game might be playable beyond New York. I'm from New Jersey and already live in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. hahaha j/k Would you guys consider someplace like Denver? Taking it to the Rockies would be cool. (Plus it makes me think of the old TV show Jericho - anyone remember that?) :) Really looking forward to the game. Looks amazing.
  29. Tyler on June 23, 2013
    I'm confused about the multiplayer. so what it sounds like, you can play with your friends to help fix the city and then you can see the results of what you do. Then you can come across other players and have some pvp and they can steal your loot from the event that you just played. It seems like with a ton of people playing the city would be all fixed pretty darned fast. So how does it work exactly?Then Ive heard of the dark zone areas...... supposedly you go there and thats where the pvp happens, but are there objectives??? how do they work??
    • Alex York on June 23, 2013
      I guess (and im pretty sure they said it) you can play 2 fractions. One will rebuild other - destroy city.
      • Tyler on June 23, 2013
        oh..... ok. well that makes sense, there would just need to be a balanced amount of players in each faction. it sounds like there can be pvp anywhere though, so whats with the dark zones?
  30. Alex York on June 23, 2013
    I say they will make a PC version, I am completely sure, but it will be like a year or half after console versions. Come on people its UBISOFT. They make games on PC, a lot of them actually, and this game is no exception. I would argue about PC version if it would be an exclusive for only next-gen console, but its not.
  31. martin on June 23, 2013
    Nothing against consoles ( own a PS3..mainly for Blu rays tbh), but I always get frustrated when it comes to shooters aiming takes forever, so I either hope that they come out with a control device like a keyboard and mouse or just make it available on a PC .Looks great though ( and I normally don't like shooters)
  32. JerrellJohnson on June 23, 2013
    Pc sucks its all about console Xbox one and Ps4 The Division have you customize your own characters and weapons Pc just doesn't cut now of days next gen graphics consoles hear we come
    • YouAreSilly on June 24, 2013
      While yes consoles will have decent graphics PC's are still way ahead of the consoles in terms of graphics capabilities. Yes it will be a little more expensive but you can also do way more things on a PC than a console. So stop being so silly good sir :)
      • Tyler on June 24, 2013
        eh, i just cant stand playing keyboard and mouse for a shooter. it works for strategy games or mmo's like world of warcraft, but shooters are just more fun with a controller and requires more skill than point and click imo.
        • gunnar on June 27, 2013

      Um most people use consoles these days and pcs these days aren't true next gen gaming mainly cause of the fact games like Crysis 3 still run on low end pcs but pcs still are awesome just don't expect them to catch up with the ps4 and the xbox one.
  36. DRAY on June 27, 2013
    Holy mother of the Jesus lord (not religious) this really is going to be game of the decade. Like holy crap I cannot wait. These next gen consoles are bad a too. They are almost better than my pc and my pc was 950$ with tax. They rly do need to come out with a pc version because definitely will get it for both Xbox one and pc. This game is gonna be sick, can't wait :)
  37. JerrellJohnson on June 27, 2013
    This is not going to pc they have the best chance of stealing the show again with the best game of the year 2014 I cannot wait tell this comes out Xbox one Ps4 no PC

    any plans to control the drone with a PS Vita??
    • Brandon on June 30, 2013
      All they said was "tablet gaming" so as long as the specs are good enough, all you have to do is download this "companion app" and buy the game.
  39. Vidise Crimson on June 28, 2013
    I want to know if it is pay-to-play. I know about the PS+ but I have dug around and found that the PS+ will not be required to play free-to-play games and MMO's but then it will still fall to Ubisoft wanting to still charge for the game. If it follows a Guild Wars 2 business model it will be bought by me, otherwise... I can't really afford something like that... and to be honest, I wouldn't really want to pay to play.
  40. Brandon on June 30, 2013
    For everyone repeating that they want it for PC. Why can't you understand that these next gen consoles are built with really advanced RAM and graphics while your PC for the same price of these consoles ($400 and $500) sometimes your not getting what you need to run it. Till they can find a way to manage they don't wanna screw you over with a game you can't play. And if their thinking as jerks lookin for money then its because when everyone starts complaining cause the game is too strong people won't buy so dealing with complaints and making little money on it won't be worth their time. JUST WAIT. I ALMOST GUARANTEE THEY WON'T PASS UP ON JACKING YOUR MONEY.

    I'm mostly a PC gamer and wasn't going to bother getting a new console, however after watching the game play demo of The Division, I'll be buying it the day it comes out for xbox one.In all honesty i could care less about a PC version. Both ps4 and xbox one are quite powerful machines, just polish the crap out of the game, so it runs nice and smooth.It's been a long time since a console game had me this excited, I keep watching the game play demo over and over and over, cant wait for this to come out! Congratulations UBI, you have my money!
  42. kody on July 5, 2013
    is there a character creation function
  43. Riderrocklee on July 9, 2013
    this game is going to change the world and i was not planing on buying a new console because the games were not impressing me until ubi came with two hot games watch dogs and The Division
  44. walch on July 10, 2013
    Hi, Game looks gooood. Would be nice if we can use S Vita consoles to play exacly the same content that are running on tablets. Would do you think about it?
  45. Trevor on July 10, 2013
    Love it . This is going to be my only thing that will get me to buy a PS4 as was skyrim the only reason i got a PS3
  46. Jim on July 12, 2013
    I know it's early, but I really think The Division has a legitimate shot at dethroning Call of Duty. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge COD fan, but their FPS formula is growing tired. RPG's offer so much more depth, and with The Division being a military shooter at heart, I believe it's going to steal a lot of COD fans away from Activision - the type of fans who are looking for something more from a shooter experience.
  47. Karan Vadhan on July 14, 2013
    https://www.change.org/petitions/ubisoft-release-tom-clancy-s-the-division-for-pcme and all the people on pc would throw money at the screen to have it
  48. B1@QUE_R3!gN on July 15, 2013
    Screw COD. Gemaplay never evolved and still hasn't. BO2 gives us "cool colors" for our guns as a prize. Nuthing else. Think about all the money spent over the years for colors. Really? Just hope that Ubi can find a way to intergrate all of it's games into this world. That's innovation.
  49. JerrellJohnson on July 15, 2013
    The Division is going to be bad ass for next gen consoles I am buying both Xbox one and Ps4 .Ps4 online game is going to be killer for The Division Xbox one may comeback a little stronger with there graphics for this game and online is little almost good but not great
  50. michael on July 16, 2013
    pc pc pc pc pc please
  51. zz4zMCLOVINz4zz on July 17, 2013
    The division should be released for PC it's an amazing game.
  52. JerrellJohnson on July 17, 2013
    More gameplay
  53. troppo snoman on July 18, 2013
    Please let those P.C people hang UBI SOFT, they are the biggest reason for money loss with piracy. Consoles are locked down effectively and for once Snobby attitudes have turned to sookie winges. They want everything now, sounds like a bit of a spoilt brat mentality. chalk one for the consoles. Thank you UBI SOFT.

  55. Khaos231 on July 20, 2013
    I think its hilarious that everyone is whining about wanting this on PC when there's a year and a half before its even released! Geez people. I'm looking forward to this as much as anyone else but we really don't have much info yet!
  56. Doddridge on July 21, 2013
    Everyone is wanting to know if its coming out on PC. I want a release date!!!
  57. Snake Eyes 75 on August 2, 2013
    A year and a half? I've been reading that the game is set to release sometime near the end of 2013. It would be nice to have a confirmed release date from Ubisoft to clear things up!I'm excited about this game, can't wait to play!
  58. Thames on August 9, 2013
    Gosh I would love to play this game this year, but I understand that making a game which is Quality is worth the wait.So Cheerio friends this is something I will be playing on my PS4
  59. Rip on August 9, 2013
    hmmm...what do i want from one of my favorite developers in this game...gonna talk single player here and leave all the pvp s**t to the sociable types...hmmm...let me think bout this...ny city...totally f**ked up...the entire city a mess...just like will smith in that movie...first thing i want are safe houses throughout the city...make me scour the city looking for stuff to upgrade my safe houses...generators, lights, cameras, motion detectors, alarm systems, booby traps, etc...here's the scenario i'm picturing...i'm out scavenging and i see somethin i want but in the process of acquiring it...i piss off a gang of maybe 10 or 20 creeps. i check my map and see that i am only 6 blocks away from one of my better equipped safe houses. i take a hit or 2 but have meds and take out 2 or 3 creeps on the way to my crib. a block from the house i equip a remote controlled machine gun i installed on a traffic light and pick off another 2. when i get to my crib it's dark. the creeps have a general idea of where i am and are actively searching for me but didn't see which building i went in.when i get in the house i activate all my cameras...lets see...2 out back in the alley...2 comin up the fire escape...and 8 more out front in the street...i place a flashbang mine in front of the window to the fire escape...i go up to the roof and take out the 2 in the alley with the silenced sniper rifle i keep up there...don't want them to know where I'm at yet...i then go out on my 3rd floor balcony that overlooks the street...I flip on the spotlights...blinding most of the creeps...i then flip another switch and a voice rings out loud and clear...SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND...followed by the helicopter music from Apocalypse Now...I then proceed to mow them all down with the 50 cal gatling gun I equipped my front porch with.Suddenly the flash bang goes off in the living room...let's see...what was that "break neck" move that other agent showed me last week?
  60. nodbon on August 16, 2013
    in the game demo, when they went into pvp the timer for extraction went off. so playing solo will suck if your flagged for pvp and a group of guys happen aupon your flare. also i want non-pvp and open world pvp servers (pvp even if you dont use a flare) dayz is awsome cause you can get attacked at anytime. tho that to sucks at times.
  61. JerrellJohnson on August 20, 2013
    The Division will be the best game o f the year when I get my hands on it I am going to assemble the best taticel team yet ever seen in this game I am going to be the silent type but deadly because you won't see me coming
    • Munsor502 on May 11, 2014
      Agreed, i'd love to be able to snipe with my squad while there pinned down or somthing
  62. adam on September 1, 2013
    I know the article said it would be playable solo... But does that require an internet connection? Or does this mean the game has a standard single player campaign? Anyone know?
  63. marty on September 15, 2013
    This looks like they will do like valve did with half-life.. best game of the year...Is this MMO will be available to play from PC?This rocks so far can;t wait to play the game
  64. Longshot_28 on September 22, 2013
    After I saw this during E3 nothing else mattered. Absolutely my most anticipated game for my PS4.
  65. J’Rome20 on November 21, 2013
    First, I love what im seeing with the division, it looks like a great game i can't wait to play it. I just have one question?? Will you guys be implementing a dog?? I think that will be a great asset to the best game ever!!! Thanks for your time get back to me asap thanks
  66. Stephen Jones on December 19, 2013
    I love the fact they don't give a cr*p about people who want a singleplayer introduced but don't want to lose that part of the player base and so it's "playable". Wow, thanks a lot. If they had spent the time they used on useless tabletplay and created an actual singleplayer campaign that isn't contaminated by other players, it would've payed off a lot more. Guess I'll just take my money elsewhere.
    • Los on December 23, 2013
      No one cares what you think , this game is mostly based on playing with your friends and exploration , stop being a little girl
      • Stephen Jones on December 25, 2013
        If they didn't care what people think, they wouldn't have issued the bullshit statement to begin with. If it's a mp game, don't give me the "great sp experience" crap. As for the insults, try again kid.
  67. J on January 9, 2014
    Pc is better blah blah blah no shyt... We cant interchange hardware in the ps4 its all computers its the same crap.. So sick of u computer nerds crying... Id prefer not to update my hardware at the expense of a little detail.. All personal preference.. So choose one n shut the hell up.. Game looks git!! Seems like i wont get bored.. I hope so.. Customization is a biggen gentlemen.. I dont wanna look like the guy i just shot up in a parking lot ya dig?
  68. Joseph on January 14, 2014
    Will u guys have it's for ps3 and when will it come out the game looks really cool and I want to try it out when it comes out
  69. Макс on February 10, 2014
    The Division просто БОМБА,СЦЕНАРИСТЫ И СОЗДАТЕЛИ этой игры просто СУПЕР ЛЮДИ.Это тот же шедевр МИРОВОГО УРОВНЯ ИСКУССТВА.Лично для меня это больше чем игра!!! Очень жду!!!!!!!!! СЦЕНАРИСТАМ и СОЗДАТЕЛЯМ ПОКЛОН и ОГРОМНЫХ УСПЕХОВ В ДЕЛАХ!!!
  70. Jokerkid on February 14, 2014
    What About Pve So we Can Play With Friends Without Being Bothered By Other People Online.
  71. Ramon on March 3, 2014
    Looks like we`ve a lot to do. I mean, to play! :)
  72. TommyHonore on March 25, 2014
    Hey. anyone know about Death penalty?? do you lose your gear? if im going solo will other player groups still hunt me?? can me and my friends play the game without any pvp action?
    • Eyan S on March 31, 2014
      Yes, you and your friends can play the game the game without any PvP. The PvP only happens within the Dark Zones, so just avoid Dark Zones...they do however hold much better loot than the Private Zones (or PvE)
  73. Максим on April 6, 2014
    Скажите пожалуйста будет ли в игре stelth развитие персонажа и будут ли там элементы паркура т.е. можно ли будет лазать по стенам свешиваться с уступов т.е. какой предел действий будет для stelth подхода к противнику можно ли будет спрыгнуть на противника сверху и тем самым нейтрализовать его? Ответьте пожалуйста!!!
  74. BUDDERMAN on April 28, 2014
    I hope that they add realistic army gear in the game and a thug like look with a Bandanna and snapbacks and stuff.
  75. Munsor on May 11, 2014
    I wonder if snipers will be obtainable in the game if so that'd be awesome, Wouldn't mind getting to a high vantage point on a the bridge or high building while picking off players.
  76. Bullzi on June 9, 2014
    Dont care if this comes on pc, coz it will just be another ubi game, another watch dogs. Dont bother porting if you are going to do a watch dogs job.
  77. Cotton on June 17, 2014
    Will we be able to use melee weapons during combat( knives, machete, hatchet)

Have something to say?
