PVP dark zones and more revealed in an alpha leak for Tom Clancy’s The Division

1 min read

Tom Clancy's The Division

It’s been a while since any new data has been revealed about Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world game, The Division. Like a rare and majestic unicorn, details on the game have been incredibly scarce. But right now, said game is currently undergoing some alpha testing. And thanks to that test, a whole new stack of details have come to the light.

YouTuber Open World Games posted the following video. If you can’t be bothered to read it, there’s a summary below of all the new info:

According to the video, The Division will feature Dark Zones, PVP arenas where players can fight it out. After passing through  a decontamination area, players can head into these arenas which can house between 50-100 participants. Players who spend more time being hidden and unseen, will be more visible on the map, thus creating tense survival scenarios. Other details mined from the Alpha include:

  • Aggressive AI that will make effective use of cover
  • Customisable weapons that can be crafted with choice of colour parts
  • Items found in dark zones need to be decontaminated before they can be used, and will have a level of rarity attached to them
  • The current map size in the alpha is described as being roughly the size of downtown Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto V, with more locations to be added

Sounds kind of promising. I’m still curious to see more of the cross-play that Ubisoft was boasting about with this title, as an E3 presentation last year had a developer using his tablet to get some extra gadgets and call in some explosive support. There’s no word yet on just when the game is going to be released, although the alpha testers feel confident that The Division will be a 2015 game.

    I’m hoping there will be a solid replay value/mmo element to it. With randomized/new mission added often ect.

    Was really amped for it, but the longer it is getting delayed and the more “classic” MMO features being revealed to more interest I’m loosing.

    yet another MMO without true open world pvp . . . I doubt I’ll enjoy it nearly as much because of that

    So you’re saying that you get penalized for being stealthy? That’s crap.
