When the Division arrives this March, there’s bound to be many a comparison made between this new Ubisoft IP and other games already on the market.
With its strong multiplayer integration, the first one will be Destiny. And for its persistent open world – GTA 5, Witcher 3 and even watch dogs
In fact, you could say The Division is the game that Watch Dogs should have been, crossed with everything that’s good about Disney . And so much more.
Firstly, there’s the setting. You find yourself in New York in the middle of a crisis. A smallpox outbreak, a targeted chemical attack, has begun on Black Friday – the disease has been spread on banknotes. The emergency services and national institutions have buckled, citizens are rioting and there have been massive casualties.
And what’s even more terrifying is that The Division’s plot is actually based on a real simulation carried out by the US in 2001, called Dark Winter.
