The Division underground trailer showcases deadly new area not included in beta

The Division underground area

Some new footage of The Division has emerged out of the IGN First program, who are running all month with exclusives on the game. It showcases an underground area, mapping the bandit-infested sewers and ex-subway tunnels of New York. Naturally, you'll be heading down there to collect loot, kill bosses and be told to keep doing what you're doing by civilian bystanders. If only they know how you spent your off hours, shooting innocent noobies in the back for a meagre amount of experience points and the last pack of Nik-Naks in the western hemisphere, eh?

The Division is quickly climbing up my personal most anticipated upcoming PC games list.

There's a little more verticality to the area, as well as offering longer range combat without a straight route from one battle line to the other, shooting at each other across a couple of bridges.

Looks rather good, I think, and a nice counter-point to the more open city areas. They've managed to make top-side Manhattan look and feel claustrophobic in their post-money apocalypse, but delving into the sewers here is the real deal. Not so sure about that boss fight at the end, that's a lot of pumping bullets into what looks like an ordinary human wearing a rather large coat. One of the places where The Division's more contemporary setting hinders it, I think, versus the massive robot-spirits of Destiny.

This area won't be available until launch, not even in the upcoming Division open beta, so you'll have to wait to explore it yourself. If you missed it, by the way, Ubisoft promised fixes for the various hacks, cheats and glitches that were running wild in the most recent closed beta.

Thanks, IGN.

With this being confirmed as DLC... It really makes me worry about how they are going to keep this game interesting.

My biggest concern from the beta was the small map. Even with most of it blocked off, you can see how small it actually is in total.

But blocking off regions and selling areas as DLC to an already existing $60 game, is really surprising, and it's going to ruin the game if they continue down this route.

All regions should be unlocked for everyone, even new ones. If they want to sell DLC's, then it should be in forms of mission packs, and content like that. But selling areas of the map, it's really going to screw the game over in the long run.

Expansion I: Underground

This first major expansion opens up a new area to players as they explore the uncharted underworld of New York City with up to 3 friends for intense co-op action.

Expansion II: Survival

In this expansion, players will have to survive as long as possible in a very hostile environment that will challenge even the most talented agents.

Expansion III: Last Stand

Stay tuned for more information.

I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned in this article

While I didn't know about the names and themes of the DLC areas, I'm 99.99% sure this footage is not from those DLC areas and is just from somewhere not in the beta. I'm going to look into it though.

Asked Ubi about it, they say it's from the main game, not the DLC.

Wouldn't get your hopes up. Probably will release as a DLC just like Brooklyn etc.
