There’s a good selection of video games releasing in 2014 and one of the more interesting titles comes from Ubisoft.
They have a good history of making games that people enjoy. The one thing you can expect in their games is plenty of exploration that has a terrific combat system.
The next game from them that looks great is called The Division, and it marks a shift in the type of games you would normally see from one of their studios.
It could be the best game from Ubisoft in 2014.
The Division, from developer Ubisoft Massive is an online, open-world, RPG game.
The plot of the game is that it takes place in New York three weeks after a lethal virus is released on Black Friday.
A secret organization is created to handle this kind of emergency and it’s made up of civilian agents, called the Division, that’s tasked to respond to the crisis.
There will be a dynamic and persistent open-world in which players will have an environment that feels alive and ever-changing.
One cool feature in the game is that replaying a specific area will vary from session-to-session.
The Division will stand out from other role-playing games in a variety of ways.
One of the ways is by giving players the ability to experience a deep skill and talent system with immense variety, as well as full character customization.
The game will also have a very large choice of weapons that will synergize with the players’ skills and talents.
The other way it stands out is that players will have the chance to explore every part of the ravaged New York area and discover its hidden stories.
One more thing that will make The Division great is the game engine.
For most games the engine is normally not a cause for celebration, but this is the exception to the rule.
Snowdrop was developed around three pillars – empowerment, real time and fun.
The Snowdrop Engine is capable of capturing light realistically via a volumetric lighting system, which will help establish a more believable atmosphere.
The Division hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.
