Tom Clancy's The Division


 

The beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division sparked some confusion amongst the fan base after players discovered that Brooklyn was seemingly not part of the game’s full map, in spite of the borough featuring heavily into the first gameplay demo. Turns out Brooklyn did find its way into the full game, just as a tutorial zone.

Several gameplay trailers suggested the setting would be playable based on participants proximity to the area’s most iconic landmark, the Brooklyn Bridge. Ubisoft recently announced that central Manhattan was the only borough players could explore, but multiple gaming outlets with early access to the game are now reporting this isn’t technically the case.

Eurogamer captured a pair of images showcasing the Brooklyn areas:

Many were hoping Brooklyn would manifest in the game as something more impressive than a tutorial location, perhaps in DLC, but there’s still a possibility considering the substantial post-launch support Ubisoft has planned for the title.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is slated for release tomorrow, March 8th, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Division does take players to Brooklyn after all—just not for very long
