Here’s Something The Division Won’t Have (Which Is A Good Thing)

It’s nice to see at least one AAA developer put their foot down against some of the more crooked practices of our modern industry. Gamers who played the beta for Ubisoft’s The Division noticed something called “Phoenix Credits,” and assumed those were representations of in-game currency that could only be obtained by swapping them with […]

The Division Beta Has Concluded — Here Are The Results

Ubisoft’s open multiplayer beta for their upcoming shooter The Division is over. What was learned over the weekend of testing, and what needs tweaking? Ubisoft isn’t saying, but they are bragging about the number of users registered: a record 6.4 million. That makes this beta test the largest ever conducted for a new IP during […]

The Division Beta Extended Another Day, Just In Time For PSN To Go Down

Ubisoft is currently putting their upcoming shooter, Tom Clancy’s The Division, through its beta-test paces. Or rather they were, but not at the present time. On March 31 Ubisoft announced The Division’s multiplayer would remain open beyond January 31, the original cutoff date. As misfortune would have it, on February 1 — today, which would […]

Ubisoft Reveals Contents Of The Division’s Season Pass

Given that the game isn’t even out yet (and that beta testing just began), isn’t it a little early to be talking about Season Passes and the DLC they cover? Maybe, but that hasn’t stopped Ubisoft.

Ubisioft Presents The Division: The Short Movie

It can be tough to get people interested in a AAA game that happens to be a brand-new, never-before-tested IP, like Ubisoft’s The Division (though it has “Tom Clancy’s” emblazoned on it). To that end, Ubisoft has financed a 30-minute short live-action film, Agent Origins, that serves as a prequel to the game’s world. Said […]

Here’s A Feature Ubisoft’s The Division WON’T Have

One feature growing in popularity with co-op games is the ability to buy, sell or trade items you collect — not to NPCs or store merchant bots, but to other players. It’s commonly called a player trading system, and it was popularized in World of Warcraft. It was rumored that Ubisoft’s upcoming shooter The Division […]

Delay Hits XBox One’s Beta For The Division

There’s been a change in plans for the testing phase of The Division, Ubisoft’s shooter set in post-apocalyptic New York. Originally the beta for the game would have gone out later this month for XBox One gamers who preordered it….but Ubisoft has changed their minds and now prefers to do beta-testing cross-platform, meaning the One, […]

Ubisoft’s The Division Lets You Use Up To Four Characters

Why limit yourself to just THREE character slots like some other, unmentionable, Brand-X co-op shooters do? Ubisoft’s upcoming entry in the genre, The Division, lets you have FOUR! So take THAT, Destiny! It’s been a while since we heard any news regarding The Division. Ubisoft released a new Q&A video today with associate lead UI […]

Ubisoft’s The Division Launches March 8

During Ubisoft’s E3 press conference this afternoon, new gameplay footage of Tom Clancy’s The Division was shown, as well as a definitive release date. Said release date won’t be until March of next year, BUT you may be able to get to play it sooner than that, if you don’t mind the beta version. A […]

The Division Delayed Into 2016

It’s been a while since we’ve had a shooter with the words “Tom Clancy’s” typed across its logo, but that might’ve changed this year — if the game hadn’t been just delayed. The Division will be a post-apocalyptic open-world game that emphasizes co-op gameplay and level building, much like Destiny except set on this planet. […]
