The long-waited online third-person shooter game is finally making its way to release this year. It has been under development by Ubisoft Massive for quite long and it seems the results are interesting. The game has now been officially rated by the ESRB and it has got an M for Mature rating. This is due to the fact that the game features some pretty violent scenes and will be hyper-realistic.
The official description of the game by ESRB reveals some cheeky details about the game. It reads as follows:
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a sleeper agent of The Division, a secret government agency designed to respond to major disasters. As players explore urban areas after a bio-terrorism attack, they combat street gangs and militias in realistic tactical fire fights; characters mostly use machine guns, shotguns, turrets, and grenades to kill enemies.
But we basically know this already. Now something more interesting:
Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large splashes of blood. Several sequences depict corpses, some tied up or hanging from railings, and players must rescue hostages in some levels of the game. Cutscenes occasionally depict bound hostages being stabbed or shot in the head. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.
Reading the description from ESRB, we get an idea what the online-open world will be like. It sounds a hell lot of fun and finally what we expected from Ubisoft.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is being developed using the all new Snowdrop Engine built from scratch for the eighth generation consoles. It will hit shelves in March for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
