After debuting some gameplay this morning at Microsoft’s E3 conference, Ubisoft used their own time to pull us a bit further into the story of The Division.
Usually when we play an apocalyptic game, we’re coming in way after the apocalypse has occurred – Fallout, The Last of Us – you know the drill. With The Division, however, we’re joining the fray as things are happening.
Ubisoft’s story trailer highlights this, showing the way homes change after a world-altering event occurs and how lives are affected.
Epidemic viruses usually aren’t fun, and the one in The Division is no different. It’s hard to tell right now much of a role the story will play in the game considering its strong multiplayer focus, but Ubisoft is doing a good job so far of setting the mood.
