Those looking to play Tom Clancy’s The Division as a single player title will be able to do so according to a new developer Q&A released by Ubisoft Massive yesterday.
While The Division may be more of a multiplayer centric title, it seems that Ubisoft Massive are taking into account players who want to play the game alone, or may not have the option to play the game online.
A user named dark_grom asked if players can “jump between “single player mode” and multiplayer mode with the same character”. According to the Ubisoft Massive representative answering the questions, “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.”
If you’re wondering what he means by seamless integration, Need for Speed: Rivals is a game that featured seamless integration wherein you could instantly jump from playing alone to playing online with another group of players. The difference between the two, according to Ubisoft is that “there won’t be any offline support” for The Division.
We reached out to Ubisoft to see if we could gather some more details on how the game would change if played as a single player title, but the development team currently isn’t talking details at the moment, so it may be a while before we hear any big new details on The Division in regards to its single player components.
There’s still no word on the release date for The Division either as the developers are looking to simutaneously release the game across the PC and Next-Gen platforms rather than stagger the releases as many next-gen games have done ala Titanfall PC, XB1 and Xbox 360 releases.
@Auptyk That’s the idea. 😉
