“Tom Clancy’s The Division” will not include Brooklyn, at least not at the launch. If reports are to believed, the developers are currently focusing on the story line rather than any thing else right now.
Gamespot quotes, “The ambitious shooter will not include the borough, at least not at launch. Instead, Ubisoft is focusing exclusively on Midtown Manhattan for the game’s release.”
Creative Director Magnus Jansen exclaims that there will be more details and density in the main Midtown Manhattan Map.
The Examiner quotes Magnus as saying, “For Tom Clancy’s The Division we are going with Midtown Manhattan.”
“It is because of the 1-to-1 recreation and the way the pandemic has [happened]. Basically, everything has been hit and there are no more resources because everyone tried to get out. There is no more gasoline in the cars, there is no traffic, you’re on foot.”
Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft have been developing the game for quite a while now and fans expect everything bit of information there is to come to them.
“With the level of detail we have, doing Midtown Manhattan is a huge open-world experience and more than enough to sink your teeth into. It is a very sizable open-world game,” Jansen further adds.
One of the recent developments has some information about DLC being available for “The Division”.
Gamspot adds, “It’s possible that Brookyln–as well as other boroughs like Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island–could be added post-launch.”
The developers have been stalling the release of the game for months now. But now, finally the release of the game has been scheduled for March 8 and shall be available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
According to the reports, the game’s closed beta begins on Jan. 28 for Xbox One users and Jan. 29 for PS4 and PC consoles. The pre-release play period ends on Jan. 31.
