Tom Clancy’s The Division will have a single player mode according to a report by BehindGames.

The game is built around seamless online integration. Going from playing alone, to playing in a group, to playing PvP will all be handled with very little or no interruption.

We’re creating what we believe is going to be the largest and most detailed New York City ever seen in a video game and we want the player to feel like they are actually exploring the city with all its landmarks, street names and atmosphere.

We took a few creative liberties, but you’ll definitely feel you are at the heart of a chaotic New York City. In this massive open-world game, we want to give the player as much opportunity as possible to explore and live their own adventure. With the power of our engine, Snowdrop, we can take this very far.

Ubisoft has a long history of working with experts and consultants. For The Division, we have consulted with ex-CIA agents, the military, survivalists, doctors, as well as experts in this kind of scenario.

We are also lucky to have in our teams, people who have experience on these matters, which is valuable for this game. Some team members have participated in survival training to develop first-hand experience of living without the things we all take for granted like food or water.

In the game you will be able to team up with a group of friends in co-op and jump in and jump out at any time. In certain areas, you can also seamlessly engage in PvP and experience dangerous, suspenseful scenarios; but you will be able to play as a group without being exposed to PvP.

Our goal is to create the best game possible, offer the players a truly immersive game experience and make them feel like they are part of a real-life situation.

The Snowdrop engine allows us to create a universe offering a wide variety of features, such as a reactive living-world system with complex AI, procedural destruction and dynamic global illumination. We are also able to integrate more objects than ever before in the environment in order to create a devastated New York City that looks both realistic and frightening.”

According to reports in January, it looks like Tom Clancy’s The Division might miss out on a 2014 release. Ubisoft has refrained from commenting on these developments, allowing many to believe that they might just be true.
