The Division Is A Game Worth Buying A Next-Gen Console For

Last year at E3 we saw games that aimed to show off the next-gen hardware of both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The only game that really has me sold so far, however, is The Division: an open-world RPG set in post-apocalyptic New York City. Check out this gameplay.

The Division is set in a world where an infection has been transmit through the population via the currency, turning cities into wastelands and citizens into mercenaries. You are a sleeper agent who awakes in the apocalypse with one objective: survive.

The game centres around co-op gameplay to scrounge for supplies and secure territory. Groups of other players are trying to do the same thing, and there’s always the risk of you running across them and getting into a giant firefight. Awesome.

With beautiful graphics and a UI to die for, The Division is a game worth getting a next-gen console for. Thankfully, it’s not an exclusive title, so both PS4 and Xbox One players can enjoy it come-2014.

Here’s the story trailer.

Here’s hoping we see more at this year’s E3, coming up soon.
