Murder With Friends: Tom Clancy’s The Division

By Alice O'Connor on June 9th, 2014.

Where are your friends, pal?

I should get better video game chums by the time Tom Clancy’s The Division comes out. A five-minute staged “gameplay demonstration” fresh out of E3 shows friends being friendly, supporting each other, using abilities carefully, and generally making the game look awfully good fun.

Earlier this year, Ubisoft surprised precisely no one by announcing that trigger-happy paranoia propaganda MMO The Division would, in fact, be coming to PC after all. You know, for three whole seconds there, I was kinda but not really a little bit worried. There is, however, a difference between an earnest PC development push and a port so sloppy it ought to be mummified in paper towels and flushed down the toilet. So where will The Division end up?
