Leaked Tom Clancy’s The Division video reveals new gameplay footage

New gameplay footage from Tom Clancy’s The Division leaked Tuesday after an Italian-language trailer was briefly posted online. Though the trailer has since been taken down, an enterprising third party has republished the trailer independently.

The trailer shows many areas of the game, including an abandoned underpass, or ruined and intact versions of a New York subway station. The video specifically highlights that game’s “safe zones,” which will serve as hubs for shopkeepers, quest-giving NPCs and players looking for a helping hand. The video also features clips of the game’s cover-based combat with a variety of weapons, including assault rifles, rolling grenades, a flamethrower, and an automatic turret. After one battle, the video shows how players can mod their weapons on the fly using parts found from defeated enemies.

The massively multiplayer online version of Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy brand, which comprises series such as Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six, The Division sets players loose in the ruins of a recently emptied New York city, which has been cut off from the world after a mysterious “epidemic” cripples the city’s infrastructure. Players control members of The Division, “an autonomous unit of tactical agents” activated in times of extreme crisis.

The new trailer comes shortly after publisher Ubisoft held a private alpha for the open-world shooter on Xbox One in December. The studio announced last June there would also be a public beta on PS4 and PC prior to the game’s release. Though Ubisoft has not announced an official start-date, a Reddit-fueled rumor suggests the beta may begin January 29. Players interested in the public beta can get access by pre-ordering the game or purchasing a key as part of a premium tier in this week’s Tom Clancy-centric Humble Bundle.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, March 8.
