PvP will play a big role in The Division

The Division

Multiplayer has become a part of more and more games. For some developers it’s become part of a checklist given by publishers. The problem with this is that in most games it hasn’t been any good to play and executed poorly. The Division has a surprisingly fresh take on multiplayer including “a very extensive web-based clan support system,” and an Android app allowing players to take part in PvP combat in real-time.

At first I wasn’t too impressed with The Division multiplayer, having seen very little of it, but the more I see, the more I like. Applying MMORPG features to shooters don’t often take off as well as it should, the developers of The Division though, are doing things right. The game will be faction based; some will be neutral to you as a Division member, some of them will be hostile and one of the factions will be one big happy faction consisting of various law enforcement and the likes.

The game will also have a companion app running on Android allowing players with an internet connection to take part in battles in real time. Players will see the map from a top down view and control a drone with which you can debug enemies, shoot at them, mark enemies and even heal your team mates.

As for the game coming to PC, it seems that if the interest is big enough, it just might happen. The Division will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2014. All the above details are discussed in the interview with IGN below.

I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?
