Eager to hear more about The Division
in the wake of the E3
media blitz? For those of you not on the ground during the convention, the latest development blog
recaps the fine points on display in the game's E3 demo. As the blog explains, the core conceit of The Division
is that you're not accepting the collapse of civilization but pushing back against it, chiefly by shooting the heck out of bandits and creeps until they're not a problem any longer.
As described by the blog post, the game utilizes a complex AI for enemies -- sniping a bandit but not his friends results in the others running back for reinforcements, leading to a pitched firefight and a chance to use special unlocked abilities. The demo also showed off using the support app to take control of a drone, allowing you to see around walls and provide important data to allies even without being directly in the game. Check out the full recap
for a thorough breakdown of where the game is right now in terms of game mechanics.
