We finally have some form of confirmation from UbiSoft of what the map featured in their upcoming title The Division will look like, and it may leave more than a few people disappointed.
The area featured in the map is that of Midtown Manhattan, meaning well know locations such as Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island are not included, this despite Brooklyn being feature in the 2013 E3 trailer and 2015 live action “Silent Night” trailer.
The screenshots below show case the areas and districts available in the map as well as what isn’t included (special thanks to Eurogamer and Open World Gameplay for the images)
In a recent interview The Division creative director Magnus Jansén stated: “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,” The Division creative director Magnus Jansén told Examiner. “It is a very sizable open-world game.
For Tom Clancy’s The Division we are going with Midtown Manhattan. It is because of the 1 to 1 re-creation 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.”
The map stretches the width of Manhattan from 56th Street, just south of Central Park, all the way down to the southern edge of the Flatiron district. So there should be plenty to explore.
As well as exploring, this map area should also mean you’ll be able to feast your eyes on some classic land marks, including but not limited to, Times Square, The Chrysler Building and most iconic of all The Empire State Building.
So knowing what the map will include (or won’t include) in terms of locations and iconic imagery are you put off The Division or are you still just as excited as you were prior to the release of this information?
