The Division screenshot teases underground gameplay

Ubisoft has released one new The Division screenshot.

The online, open-world role playing shooter takes place in New York following the release of a devastating manmade virus. Players step into the boots of agents from The Division, a classified unit fighting to prevent the collapse of society.

While previous screenshots have shown street and rooftop action, the latest shot highlights that players will also be able explore the tunnels beneath the city. "New York City offers endless possibilities of exploration," according to the text accompanying the image, which was recently posted on the official The Division Twitter account.


In development since 2012, the Xbox One, PS4 and PC game is principally being developed by Ubisoft Massive, although Ubisoft Reflections, creator of Driver and upcoming open-world racer The Crew, is also collaborating on the project.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said that The Division release date will fall "closer to the end of 2014 than the start", possibly lining up the well-received title as a Christmas release. Exclusive The Division DLC will be released on Xbox One before and after the main game's release.
