For the second year in a row, Ubisoft drops a brand new IP on us at the end of the Ubisoft conference, an online open-world shooter called The Division. Basically, money ruins the world, and the Division has to pick up the pieces. Oh, and the action shown in the trailer looked pretty damn cool.
Are we crazy, or is Ubisoft trying to send a message? First they tell us that technology can be turned against us at any time in Watch Dogs, then they tell us that money causes the world to crumble in The Division. What’s next, a television wave signal turns frequent TV watchers into mindless drone zombies? Hm...that’s actually interesting.
