UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF PIONEERING NEXT-GENERATION ONLINE OPEN-WORLD RPG, TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION ™
LOS ANGELES – June 10, 2013 – Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, Ubisoft® announced the development of Tom Clancy’s The Division, a groundbreaking online, open-world RPG, for the Xbox One from Microsoft and the PlayStation® 4 from Sony, coming in 2014.
The Division takes place in New York 3 weeks after a lethal virus, released on Black Friday, swept through the city. One by one, basic services have failed. Society has collapsed into chaos. The President invokes Presidential Directive 51, and The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, Division agents are trained to operate independently of command in this type of emergency situation. When the lights go out, their mission begins.
In a Tom Clancy universe dedicated to realism, explore the once-familiar streets and landmarks of the Big Apple, now decimated by looting and overrun by clans that will do anything to survive. From Central Park to the subway to the Statue of Liberty, nowhere is safe. Discover a persistent, online, open-world New York where exploration, combat, and RPG player-progression are essential.
“Our goal with Tom Clancy’s The Division is nothing short of completely changing the way people play online RPGs,” said Fredrik Rundqvist, executive producer, Ubisoft. “With the power of next-gen consoles behind it, The Division puts players in the middle of breathtaking, persistent multiplayer thriller in which they will explore, fight and work together as modern society collapses around you, all with the authenticity for which Tom Clancy games are renowned.”
Tom Clancy’s The Division is developed by Massive™ Entertainment, the Sweden-based Ubisoft studio renowned for the World in Conflict® series.
The game is the latest title set in the Tom Clancy’s™ universe, which has sold more than 76 million games worldwide across its different franchises. Other forthcoming Tom Clancy’s-branded experiences from Ubisoft include Splinter Cell®: Blacklist™, developed by Ubisoft Toronto, which delivers a gripping modern-day special-ops storyline with a new level of technical innovation and quality.

@jmd749: the LG SJ850 and 950 aren't that much cheaper than their B7 here. I predict it will be on sale the days before new year. (42 minutes ago)
And FOX has been removing stuff from Netflix for a while too, at least in the USA. These are two publishers they were already losing. (1 Hour ago)

@Melmoth: I'd get a LG nano cell 65" instead or a 55" OLED and invest in a GTX 1080 ti. I have a liquid cooled MSI SeaHawk 1080Ti and during gameplay I get temps around 40 degrees centigrade. (4 Hours ago)
