The player, who is an agent of the Strategic Homeland Division, commonly referred to as simply “The Division,” is tasked with helping to rebuild the Division’s operations in Manhattan, investigating the nature of the outbreak and restoring law and order in its wake.

Ubisoft are making a real push in getting its properties to the screen with Assassin’s Creed starring Michael Fassbender and Splinter Cell set to star Tom Hardy.
