Tom Clancy’s The Division is an action video game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft, with assistance from Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Annecy, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It is set in a near future New York City in the aftermath of a smallpox pandemic; the player, who is a Special Agent of the eponymous Strategic Homeland Division, commonly referred to simply as “Division”, is tasked with helping the group rebuild its operations in Manhattan, investigate the nature of the outbreak, and combating criminal activity in its wake.
The Division is set in an open world mid-crisis Manhattan with destructible environments that can be freely explored by the players. The player’s mission is to restore order by investigating the source of a virus. The player character can carry three weapons, and explosives like sticky bombs and seeker mines to fight against enemies.
Players can take cover behind objects during fire-fights to avoid taking damage from enemies and to give them a tactical advantage when attacking. The game is played from a third-person perspective, meaning the character model is visible.
