Tom Clancy’s The Division is an online only action RPG set in an open world environment. Step into the shoes of a Special Agent of the Strategic Homeland Division (aka The Division) and save New York City after a terrorist cell has unleashed a deadly virus in Manhattan!
On Black Friday a deadly smallpox virus was released in Manhattan after being planted in bank notes. Naturally the disease has caused widespread panic and chaos, forcing Manhattan to be shut down under quarantine. Special sleeper agents of The Division have been activated inside Manhattan and it’s up to them to investigate the cause of the outbreak and take down any criminals that get in their way.
With the ability to carry up to three weapons, explosives and mines, you’re never short of firepower. As you complete missions you’ll gain XP points which you can use to buy weapons and equipment and learn new skills. There’s a day/night cycle and a time-based weather system which can often prove to be both an advantage and a disadvantage on occasion, depending on each mission scenario. Since launch there have been numerous add-ons and updates. The most recent was released in December 2017 and features a new area called West Side Pier and two brand new game modes; Resistance (where you have to fend off waves of attacking enemies) and Skirmish (multiplayer mode where two teams consisting of four players each, battle it out until one of the teams reaches twenty kills).
