The Division's use of tablets looks amazing

I don’t normally get into multiplayer games, especially if they involve shooting. Sorry, just not my style. But, the Division looks fantastic, and the use of tablets is really cool.

Here is a video showing what the tablets can do in the Division’s multiplayer support:

Highlighting enemies, calling in drone strikes – it just looks great. Β Plus, I really like the idea of being able to play it from bed. Yup, I can lie in bed with my tablet, while everyone else is hunched over their PCs/consoles. This companion app seems like a great idea, particularly because of the exclusive playable character complete with experience and progression path. It just makes sense that the aerial drone would be controlled by mobile device. I think I’m getting too excited for this game, now – it really looks impressive!

      I think that depends on the developer /publisher. If it’s EA at all don’t bank on android support because of “security flaws which will risk our online auction houses” which should actually read “we can’t enforce proper DRM on Android”
