After The Division’s gameplay trailer earlier today at the Microsoft media briefing, the game reappeared at Ubisoft’s briefing. This trailer focused more on the story side of things. It began with a time lapsed video sweeping through New York and went on to detail the games character. Beforehand, developers detailed that the player is a member of ‘The Division’, a group of sleeper agents who were activated to track down the global pandemic’s origin.
You play right after they are activated, approximately three weeks after the outbreak. As expected the world looks gorgeous and tragic as the disease has taken it’s toll on the city. The newly revealed story sounds like an interesting hook and I’m excited to hear more. Check it out below to see it for yourself:
