New The Division screenshots are a graphical showcase

Three new in-game shots show a wintery New York

Ubisoft has released new screenshots of its much anticipated online RPG, Tom Clancy's The Division.

The game's high-end visuals are very much the focus in these three new images, which show off ambient lighting and particle effects, geometry and character detail.

The Division was revealed at E3 with gameplay footage for Xbox One and PS4, before Ubisoft confirmed a PC version at Gamescom.

The ambitious title aims to blur the lines between multiplayer and single-player experiences by launching players into an adventure set in a post-apocalyptic New York. As players work their way through the story they will band up into squads with fellow players and proceed through missions that bring them face-to-face with other squads.

The game will run Ubisoft's new 'Snowdrop Engine', which was recently given a video tech demo showing off its capabilities.

The Division is set for release in the second half of 2014.
