Ubisoft Massive is living up to its name with Tom Clancy's The Division, an ambitious open-world RPG in which you're cast as a special agent tasked with restoring Manhattan to some semblance of normality following the outbreak of a virus that's plunged society back into the dark ages.

Like any RPG worth its salt, The Division promises levelling, progression, customisation, exploration and plenty of loot, as Ubisoft Massive Game Director Ryan Barnard told us when we managed to get a few minutes with him during a special Ubisoft event at Gamecom.

We quizzed Barnard on the workings of PvP, the game's scope, its story, venturing into new territory with The Division, and much, much more. Watch the interview below. The Division will be heading to next-gen platforms in winter 2014.

  • I have pre-ordered this little beauty already! Shame its a Winter 2014 release :(
  • Its without a question that when Ubisoft showed this beauty off at the ubisoft conference at the E3 everyone was blown away, including writing one here! There where def games that had my obvious attention, but nothing can describe it, when they showed this :) Just the shear detail thats going on and the graphics and how fluid movement and gunplay was. There is alot of these little details like someone can join in with his/her tablet and be basicly the "eyes & ears" of the team, in short the drone. If they nail everything right untill its release date i,m bold enough to state, this might end up GOTY. Can't wait!
