Tom Clancy's: The Division was an extremely fun title if you did not get your hopes too high, many people got built up in the hype of the game and took a disliking because their expectations of the game had gotten too much. On the other hand what else have we come to expect from Ubisoft titles, the games are presented in a manner to the public in which they want the game to be as appealing as possible to the widest market.
The game has continued on with a dedicated user base, the daily log in count has dropped from the high volume it received at launch. This is only natural with other titles such as Ghost Recon Wild Lands coming out from the Tom Clancy banner. Though Ubisoft are still supporting the Division and are rewarding their fans with a free map expansion in the 1.8 update titled "Resistance" due for release this Autumn. The Resistance will unlock a large section of the map at the West Side Pier where players will encounter new PvE and PvP modes for the game in the Skirmish and Resistance updates for the title.
The Division has been met with mixed opinions since its release, and yet I still find myself returning to the game from time to time. It is an open world of city blocks and exploration, not to forget many bullets flying in impromptu gun battles in the open. Tomorrow sees the launch of the 3rd expansion to the games campaign, The Last Stand sees players go up against familiar enemies in an unfamiliar territory. New game modes and a new incursion mission await players in this upcoming expansion to the already sizeable game. The best thing is, The Last Stand releases 28th February.
Tom Clancy games have always had an element of realism surrounding them. The majority of their games focus on wars, cartels, and even a couple casino robbers. Each of these games have tended to bring a realism mode of difficulty where fatal shots will kill you. Nowadays there are a lot of live action trailers accompanying a video games release, take the recent Final Fantasy XV for instance, that had a mix of real children and CGI characters. But Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (which we will refer to Wildlands as its quite a mouthful) has gone for a live action documentary. Take a look:
Tom Clancy's: The Division's first DLC pack launches today for Xbox One and takes players under New York City. Players find themselves fighting familiar foes beneath the city having driven the gangs from the streets. This expansion touts a randomly generated series of tunnels, sewers and subways. How unique each experience will be remains to be seen, but the lure of loot should keep seasoned players coming back for more.
Also included is a new Incursion in the Dragon's Nest. Set in Hell's Kitchen, the Cleaners are developing a new weapon to cleanse the city starting with The Division's base of operations.
Tom Clancy's The Division made an appearance at Microsoft's E3 press conference with the look at the upcoming Undergrounds DLC. Ubisoft kept some news about the rest of the DLC to announce at their own press conference.
One announcement was that if you are a member of Ubisoft Club and play The Division, in the near future you will have 3 outfits for your character unlocked in the game. The outfits will be based off of Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell and Rainbow 6; that is a lot more Tom Clancy franchise integration.
