Tom Clancy's The Division sets its doomsday clock for March 8, 2016

Ubisoft's snowy, post-viral apocalypse simulator Tom Clancy's The Division (opens in new tab) will hit Xbox One, PS4 and PC on March 8, 2016, the developer/publisher announced at E3 2015. Xbox One owners will get the first taste of urban survival thanks to a December Division beta (opens in new tab), which was announced during the Microsoft E3 press conference.

In case you've been living under a Ubisoft-free rock, The Division stars you as a member of a militarized emergency response team (The Division), trying to keep order in a ravaged New York City. Survivors, scavengers and rogue agents will present opportunities and threats as you scour the city for supplies and vie for control.
