Ubisoft Massive is living up to its name with Tom Clancy's The Division, an ambitious open-world RPG in which you're cast as a special agent tasked with restoring Manhattan to some semblance of normality following the outbreak of a virus that's plunged society back into the dark ages.
Like any RPG worth its salt, The Division promises levelling, progression, customisation, exploration and plenty of loot, as Ubisoft Massive Game Director Ryan Barnard told us when we managed to get a few minutes with him during a special Ubisoft event at Gamescom.
We quizzed Barnard on the workings of PvP, the game's scope, its story, venturing into new territory with The Division, and much, much more. Watch the interview below. The Division will be heading to next-gen platforms in winter 2014.
