Tom Clancy's The Division was playable as a closed alpha earlier this month. It is usual policy to prohibit those taking part in such closed tests from publishing video footage and screenshots, as was the case this time around. However there are a series of videos showing actual gameplay from this release live on YouTube at the time of writing.
YouTuber DeproFan has a series of three 20 minute video segments showing gameplay footage of The Division closed alpha. I've embedded the first of the segments above, it includes your character design at the beginning, before setting off to be dropped into the first mission scenario via helicopter. Please be aware that these videos may be removed, so if you are interested in seeing gameplay from The Division its best to look through these videos now, before any digital whackamole commences. The YouTube footage is from Xbox One.
The Division is described in brief, by publisher Ubisoft, as an online open-world RPG experience. It is set in a chaotic, devastated New York city. You are a Division agent sent in to help restore order to this complex world. To progress you will develop your character, taking part in missions, utilising your skills, wits and experience. You will be in dynamic environment which combines Tom Clancy style authenticity and tactics with RPG action, loot, trading and social elements.
Last week we saw an official The Division trailer published by Ubisoft with a Christmassy theme. The trailer asks "When our world is on the brink of collapse, what's left for us to save?" Pretty bleak, but a good scene setter to whet your appetite for the game launch.
