Three new characters join the hunt: Blackbeard, The Jaguar and The Orchid, each bringing their unique set of skills to battle for the title of best Assassin.

Blackbeard, wielding his sword and short temper, is not to be trifled with. His reputation as a feared pirate is justly received, and his preferred kill moves include using his tremendous strength to throw his targets off balance and quickly finishing them with one clean strike.

The Orchid, a deadly Assassin, grew up in China and served as a military advisor during the Qing Dynasty, honing her murderous skills. She executes opponents swiftly and gracefully with her blade, an extension of her mind and body.

The Jaguar, Cuali, an Aztec warrior from Mexico, took to the sea to fight against the Spanish conquest of Central America. A fighter, he survived the destruction of his community and joined forces with a growing contingent of native Templars who sought renewed peace and order. Driven by a mystical force, The Jaguar strikes swiftly and quietly with his preferred weapon, a discreet axe.

Tom Clancy’s The Division Trailer Released and Snowdrop Next-Gen Showcase

December 9, 2013 – Excitement over the release of Tom Clancy’s The Division has us here at Game Revolver already counting the days before we will be able to get our hands on Ubisoft’s latest release that marks the introduction of a Tom Clancy title specifically made for the next-generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That’s right; The Division was designed with the next-generation gaming consoles in mind since it will be using the Snowdrop engine, which will allow for some impressive real-time large-scale effects that will push the realism factor to newer and better heights that the current-generation just can’t handle.

What this means is that Tom Clancy’s The Division will not only feature an incredibly detailed environment but, thanks to the Snowdrop engine, the game will drop us in an environment that makes the environments and the characters interact with it in a realistic manner that will add to the gameplay elements.

Here are some visual examples of what the Snowdrop engine is capable of displaying and give you an idea of what it is able to create during your gameplay experience.

No release date has been issued as of late but we can expect this title to be available in 2014.

The Division takes place in New York three weeks after a lethal virus, released on Black Friday, has swept through the city. One by one, basic services have failed. Society has collapsed into chaos. The President invokes Presidential Directive 51, and The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives, Division agents are trained to operate independently of command in this type of emergency situation. When the lights go out, their mission begins.

In a Tom Clancy universe dedicated to realism, players can explore the once-familiar streets and landmarks of the Big Apple, now decimated by looting and overrun by clans that will do anything to survive. From Central Park to the subway to the Statue of Liberty, nowhere is safe. Discover a persistent, online, open-world New York where exploration, combat, and RPG player-progression are essential.
