The company provided the following statement: “Good news for PC gamers: We heard you, and we are happy to share that Tom Clancy’s The Division also will be available for the PC, in addition to the Xbox One from Microsoft and the PlayStation 4 from Sony.”
The Division takes place in New York three weeks after a lethal virus, released on Black Friday, has swept through the city. One by one, basic services have failed. Society has collapsed into chaos. The President invokes Presidential Directive 51, and The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives, Division agents are trained to operate independently of command in this type of emergency situation. When the lights go out, their mission begins.
In a Tom Clancy’s universe dedicated to realism, players can explore the once-familiar streets and landmarks of the Big Apple, now decimated by looting and overrun by clans that will do anything to survive. From Central Park to the subway to the Statue of Liberty, nowhere is safe. Discover a persistent, online, open-world New York where exploration, combat, and RPG player-progression are essential.
Developed by Massive™ Entertainment, the Sweden-based Ubisoft studio renowned for the World in Conflict® series, Tom Clancy’s The Division will arrive in 2014.
