'Tom Clancy's The Division' news: RPG gets positive reviews days after release; DLC plans announced by Ubisoft


“Tom Clancy’s The Division” has piqued the interest of gamers, when it was first unveiled two years ago at E3 2013. In the months leading to the release, Ubisoft, has also conducted a series of dry runs an Alpha test last December and a Beta one last week, to give gamers the chance to experience the game before it gets released. Now that the third person shooter video game is already out, majority of initial reviews are raving about the game.

PC Game Asia recently cited down a couple of great reasons to dive into virus stricken New York and delve into the problem. Given that the RPG is set on a real city, gamers would be able to roam around a chaotic Manhattan in the game. “The Division” gives a decent replica of one of the most famous areas in the world where fans can even cite their favorite NYC landmarks. While the range of the game is not necessarily as big compared to other open-world games, the density and eye for detail in the graphics are enough to keep gamers occupied.

Attack of the Fanboy, on the other hand, said that “The Division” made sure that players will actually care about the situation and not just randomly go on a mission without a cause. The website pointed out that while the narrative is not necessarily original or over the top, it had enough surprises to keep gamers engaged and motivated.

With the seemingly positive acceptance of the game, Ubisoft announced a series of expansion packs that “The Division” fans can take advantage of which will start rolling in April starting with “The Inscursions.”

“‘The Incursions’ update will add an endgame activity designed for squad play, challenging teams of four players to face nigh-unstoppable enemies for high-level loot,” Ubisoft explained in their announcement.

“Also coming with the ‘Incursions’ update is loot trading. Players in the same squad will be able to trade loot what’s collected during their co-op game session.”

“Tom Clancy’s The Division” is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
