The Division screenshots reveal more post-apocalyptic New York

The Division

The fresh batch of Tom Clancy’s The Division screenshots reveal some new perspectives of the post-apocalyptic New York landscape.

Ubisoft has been beavering away quietly on The Division for quite some time now, but the publisher occasionally drip feeds us a few screenshots to keep the intrigue about the game bubbling away.

The latest collection of screenshots from the game provide some pretty stunning birds-eye shots of New York, while others reveal the squad creeping about in the night-time air.

The game is set in a New York City that has been swept by a pandemic, causing the basic services to fail and the society to collapse into chaos.

With the squad struggling to fight against the effects of a manmade virus and those who released it, the game certainly takes a new tack for a Tom Clancy game.

The effects of the pandemic are clearly seen in these screenshots, with piles of dead bodies seen rotting in the street.

You can also see the Division squad members sneaking up and grabbing an enemy from behind, or searching the streets for vital supplies a la The Last of Us but military style.

From the looks of the screenshots, The Division will have some impressive lighting effect thanks to Ubisoft’s new Snowdrop engine powering the game.

Although Ubisoft has yet to confirm a solid The Division release date, CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed it will launch “closer to the end of 2014 than the start.”

The game will launch for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Looks amazing.

Shame that Watchdog's recent shenanigans has ruined any hope I had for next-gen consoles being able to run anything remotely like this...

has ruined or did? because the gameplay demo for this game is ran on a ps4 and ha been confirmed by devs.


March 26, 2014, 2:06 pm

In that case has not ruined.

This demo video is on PS4? That's pretty impressive, and makes me happy.

An unfinished game like this running on a ps4/xbox one is possible however dont expect it to be this amazing on your consoles, join the PC gaming and experience gaming at its highest quality

Haha, I don't have a console, but I take an interest in them and their games. Particularly the latest ones as they are so close in architecture to the PC. The reason I was talking about 'hope' for the consoles is purely because I was kind of hoping for more powerful machines when they were both released. Maybe push graphics and gameplay on in bigger strides than what we've seen already. I know it'll get better in time, but this along with Watchdogs have the potential to be amazing.

well your full of bs m8 .... you do realise the snowdrop engine was made specifically for NEXT GEN CONSOLES not for pc's .. yes the games coming out for pc but the engine was made for ps4 / xbox one.

also ontop of my previous comment ... the game was never planned to be released onto pc in the first place . They decided to release it onto pc 'after' the gameplay demo . So no .. unfortunately pc is not top priority anymore to certain Devs.

Didn't mean to offend just stating that a $500 pc vs a console will be stronger. Hopefully we will see cross platform :) see ya guys in the apocalypse

its not just about being stronger is it ... i dont need to worry about defrag / spyware / malware / any kind of virus scans etc etc etc (computer maintenance in all) i also dont need to worry about bots / cheaters / any kind of hacking.

I can happily turn my console on and start a game up almost instantly. simple , cheap , and does the job very well.

I also have not noticed any difference in graphics on the current games that are out on ps4 and pc.
