The Division’s experience will be “really something”
The second-screen experience for upcoming next-generation Tom Clancy game The Division will be “really meaningful,” Massive Entertainment game director Ryan Bernard has said.
R.I.P. Tom Clancy as he passed away last week and we lost one of the best writers of the century, This game will be a tribute to the master game maker.
Thomas Leo “Tom” Clancy, Jr. was an American author best known for his technically detailed espionage and military science storylines that are set during and in the aftermath of the Cold War.
“We are creating a second-screen experience that will be really meaningful for the game,” Bernard told Xbox Wire. “It will be a whole new experience for the group, through simultaneous and asymmetric gameplay between the mobile device and the console/PC game.”
Explaining some of the functionality, Bernard said those playing through the app will be able to “seamlessly” join a game anywhere they want, as they control a drone. While playing as the drone, players will see the scene from a bird’s eye view and are able to provide tactical support for teammates.
The Division is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game is powered by the Snowdrop Engine and will be released in fall 2014. Check the video below for The Experience!
