Tom Clancy’s The Division Launch & Beta Dates Announced
Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s The Division, an immersive online open world action RPG, will launch on March 8, 2016, available for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society. Team up with other players to investigate the source of the virus and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.
In Tom Clancy’s The Division, discover a hostile and dynamic environment where exploration and player progression are essential. Not bound by a specific class, players can change their loadout at any time to fit the needs of the situation, playstyle preferences or to complement the choices made by up to three other specialized agents on their team.
Players can upgrade their weapons, gear and skills to fight through a city where danger can come from anywhere, anyone, and at any moment. Revealed at E3, players can enter the most dangerous part of the Big Apple with the Dark Zone, an abandoned quarantine district that provides a suspenseful multiplayer experience with emergent gameplay, unique encounters and legendary loot. Within this zone, players can collaborate with other agents or attack them to steal their hard earned loot.
Those who pre-order any version of the game will receive guaranteed access to the upcoming betas, starting with the exclusive beta on Xbox One this December, and get the Hazmat Gear Set for their agent. Players can also sign up for the beta program now at http://www.thedivisiongame.com/beta.
Further details on the betas and Season Pass content will be revealed at a later date. For more information about Tom Clancy’s The Division, please visit www.thedivisiongame.com or follow Ubisoft’s Facebook pages at www.facebook.com/UbisoftSEA.
