We have previously reported on Tom Clancy's The Division only a few days ago, and although the game looks to be very promising, would-be-players are disappointed by the delay.  Those that are awaiting Tom Clancy's The Division have at least some small thing to look forward to as it is available for pre-order on Amazon for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC Update. 

Unfortunately, if you click on any one of the Amazon pre-order sites, like the one for the PC, it will tell you that the item will be released on December 31, 2015.  The News site for Tom Clancy's The Division doesn't confirm that date, and the release date is usually displayed quite prominently on most official sites devoted to a specific game.  The release date of December 31st  2015 is often just a filler until the game actually gets a formal set release date, and usually means that the company has promised the game to be released "sometime in 2015".  For example, the long-awaited Final Fantasy XV has the exact same release date on its Amazon pre-order page. 

In addition to the excellent gameplay and story, Tom Clancy's The Division includes "revolutionary companion gaming".  This enables the play to join friends in real-time gameplay with exclusive characters on a smartphone or tablet.  This application allows the player to have a bird's-eye view of the battlefield, giving him or her ability to attack enemies as well as place targets for allies.  I'm not certain if the "revolutionary companion gaming" is a first for Tom Clancy's The Division, but it certainly sounds like something that could be a new gaming standard. 

According to IGN, Tom Clancy's The Division takes place in New York three weeks after a lethal virus is released on Black Friday.  Society falls and the President activates The Division, a top-secret unit of self-supporting tactical agents.  Division agents are trained to operate independently of command, and players will delve into the world of fallen New York City, which has been overrun by clans willing to do anything to survive.  The gameplay involves exploring through New York through very familiar landmarks, and there will be a lot of third-party shooting. 

This would be the first time that Tom Clancy has tackled anything in the post-apocalyptic genre, which is quite common in most video games and other science fiction franchises.  Tom Clancy, an author who passed away on October 1, 2013.  He left behind a legacy of novels that are most famous for introducing the now iconic character of Jack Ryan.  In addition to his book contributions, he has inspired a video game series known as Rainbow Six, about an counter-terrorist unit focusing on teamplay and realism.  There is another video game in that franchise which is pending release known as Rainbow Six Siege, and it also has an unknown release date. 

It is possible that Tom Clancy's The Division could make an appearance at E3 2015.  If that is the case, then perhaps the game could have a possible holiday release, which is a good time for games to be released.  It is possible to pre-order it on Amazon now for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
