The Tom Clancy series of shooter games have been known to be the most detailed titles in terms of warfare technology. There have been a ton of titles under the Tom Clancy brand, including amazing stealth games like the Splinter Cell series and more action-oriented shooters like Rainbow Six. The next game in the franchise looks to outdo past titles as The Division is shaping up to be a very promising game.
Tom Clancy?s The Division is scheduled to hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 8, and with the recently concluded open beta, the game has already impressed fans. The beta gave players a taste of what?s in store for them at The Division. Below are some of the reasons why The Division could be the next big thing in gaming.
Standard Shooter with RPG Elements
At its core, The Division is the basic cover shooter that gamers can play with others. What makes it more special than other shooters is that it has RPG elements like EXP, skills and quests. This has been a staple formula for other hit franchises like Borderlands and Fallout, so there?s little chance that things could go wrong.
Solid Single Player and Co-op/Competitive Multiplayer
When it comes to playing, gamers can scour New York city on their own. Alternatively, they could also play with or against other players. During the beta testing periods, players experienced both play styles, and it?s looking good so far. Games like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain offer players a hand at solid single and multiplayer experiences, and it?s made a success of the game, giving players several ways to enjoy it.
Thrilling High-Risk High-Reward System
One of the core gameplay features of The Division is the ability to go rogue, betray your allies and take all the loot at the end of each mission. If the player does go rogue, he has to hold out for some time to officially claim all the loot. This is a simple mechanic but it is sure to add more suspense to the game as players will be on the edge of their seat after each mission.
