With the launch of The Division now only weeks away Ubisoft is sharing a bit more about the enemies our agents will be facing in the streets of New York.
The trailer showcases each of the game’s factions. There’s the Rioters, Rikers, Cleaners, Last Battalion, and, of course, The Division itself. While the Rioters’ name is pretty self-explanatory, the Rikers are the escaped criminals from Riker’s Island, and the Cleaners are a group committed to eradicating the small pox disease that has destroyed New York. Meanwhile the Last Battalion looks to be baddest of the bad, an organized military force trying to take New York, even if it means killing everyone else to do it.
The Rikers and the Cleaners were both featured in the recent Agent Origins live action YouTube series Ubisoft put together in the lead up to The Division’s release. It was also recently announced the game will be holding an open beta starting February 18th. If you’re thinking of jumping in, be sure to check out our impressions of the game’s recent closed beta.
The Division launches March 8th on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. What do you think of the game’s factions? Let us know in the comments.
