My friend and I love shooting games a lot. We play a lot of CSGO but it donned to use that we need a new game to enjoy.
Just this year, there is a new shooting game called Tom Clancy’s The Division. It was one of the most highly anticipated games in recent memory, but does it deliver? We will find out in this article.
The story starts when a smallpox virus was transmitted via infected banknotes. These banknotes circulated around New York City and trouble began after the smallpox was widespread.
They dubbed this smallpox virus as the “Dollar Flu” and Manhattan was severely hit, forcing the government to place it under quarantine. This means that neither anyone inside or outside the city can go in nor out.
The government then assigned “Sleeper agents” to help solve the problem. These sleeper agents are known as “The Division”.
The main protagonist was prepped and ready to go to the quarantine zone along with his fellow agent, Faye Lau.
Unfortunately, the vehicle that was supposed to deliver the agents to the quarantine zone was bombed, killing their commander and some of their comrades in the process.
After knowing that their supposed VTOL was bombed, both of the agents took the helicopter instead.
Upon arrival, they were asked to reclaim a post office building because that building will serve as their base of operations.
After both of the agents helped and set up the base, they were then assigned to subdue criminals.
You see, during the aftermath of the disease, some criminal groups were trying to reign supreme in the city.
These groups are the Rikers who are prisoners who escaped the infamous Rikers Island; the Rioters who are just common thugs that just want to cause havoc; and Cleaners, people who are demented and thinking that everyone is already infected with the virus.
After some missions, the two agents were able to get a sample of the Dollar Flu virus. It was then found out that the virus was heavily modified by a biologist that goes by the name of Gordon Amherst.
During the course of the game, players will find clues to the whereabouts of Dr. Amherst.
The Tom Clancy’s The Division is a very interesting game not only because of the storyline but also the gameplay.
The Division is unlike any shooting games I’ve played. Instead of using the first-person perspective, the game uses the third-person perspective instead. This means that you can see your player while you move throughout Manhattan.
Players are free to roam the area and they will be met with resistance such as the criminal groups I’ve mentioned above.
During the course of the game, players will gain experience points by completing objective and killing or subduing criminals. They will also be rewarded with in-game money as well.
The in-game money can be used to purchase weapons and other gears that are essential for combat.
In the base camp that you will set up early in the game, there are three major wings you need to be familiar with: the Security, Tech, and Medical Wing. Each of the wings has different missions that players can do in order to receive more exp and in-game money.
