Ubisoft Unveils Best Look At The Division’s Gameplay To Date; RPG Shooter Launches In March


The latest in the long line of gameplay demonstrations for The Division unsurprisingly made its way into Ubisoft’s E3 2015 presentation, bringing with it a new batch of information about the setting and the dangers that await players once they get to dive in.

The new multiplayer demon focused around the same group of players that eager fans will have recognized from the previous videos and sees them take their quest for useful loot into the game’s dangerous Dark Zone. Said Dark Zone is explained as being the game’s large quarantine area in the middle of Manhattan and was described as the most unpredictable area of The Division.

Once inside, the players in the video quickly identify a potentially vital loot crate, though it seems to be under the watchful eye of a band of enemy NPCs. While the team plots how best to deal with them, they are quickly surprised by a rival band of gamers, which leads to a tense standoff while each group waits to see what the other will do.

Eventually resolving to work together, the two groups neutralize the enemies and split the loot equally in a tenuous companionship. This proves to be short lived, however, and it seems the scope for betrayal and self-serving motives is incredibly large in the cut-throat world of The Division‘s New York City.

Check out the trailer above and let us know if you’ll be picking up The Division when it launches on March 8, 2016.
