The Division: New Screenshots Show Subway Station and Open Street of New York

Ubisoft has released three new in-game screenshots of its upcoming open-world action title, Tom Clancy’s The Division.

The latest batch shows us a glimpse of the subway station, an open street of New York city, and an in-game map of the city that portrays the entire architecture from atop.

The visual power being boasted by this game is simply stunning. Ubisoft’s new Snow Engine really is the ideal one to power up a game such as The Division. At first glance the subway station actually looks like a real-life concept art, it’s that good. In the second one, the lighting and bloom effect plays in effect to the time of day.

Now here comes the hope that these are actual in-game screenshots that have undergone no tweaking or additional procedures to make it prettier for the media. Ubisoft took it as its civil duty to tone down Watch Dogs for whatever reason. They do not need to follow a similar path with The Division. In fact this is the perfect time for the company to redeem itself by offering us the exact same thing they showed us at the game’s original E3 reveal.

The Division was supposed to release late this year but was then delayed to 2015. The game is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The storyline is set in a post-apocalyptic frozen New York city, which saw to a lethal virus being spread on Black Friday that swept through the city and killed off almost all of the population.
