The Division is definitely a game which is viewed from a third person perspective and coming to consoles and PC from the 8th of March 2016. It has shooting and some multiplayer elements but honestly we're still not entirely sure what it's going to be like during moment to moment gameplay.
Well a lengthy video has been released which might give us some proper hints on that score. This comes from an early closed beta, with more players being allowed onto the servers by the end of January. It has also been upscaled to 1440p and 60 frames per second to try to get past the horrible compression on YouTube. The full game won't look like this.
The combat certainly looks meaty and there's plenty of interesting tech which you can bring to the fight. The fire effects look marvellous and enemies take a serious amount of bullets before they stop attempting to kill you back. It's definitely a shooter, and we're still not 100 percent clear how much of the game can be played with other real-life humans. You can definitely fight against real folks in the Dark Zones, which are more challenging areas with better loot.
Hopefully all of this will become clear before the launch of the game on the 8th of March 2016.
