At Ubisoft’s E3 2016 showcase, Ubisoft Massive developers announce that The Division gets three new outfits themed after Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, and Splinter Cell.
As stated during Ubisoft’s E3 2016 press conference, the company is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. With that being the case, in honor of the game developer and publisher’s existence of three decades in the gaming industry, the developers for the wildly popular third-person shooter The Division declared it will receive three new outfits themed after other classic franchises under the Ubisoft banner’s Tom Clancy imprint.
Ostensibly, The Division developers decided that going with outfits themed after other Tom Clancy titles would not only pay homage to Ubisoft itself, but that the clothes would also fit the tone, style, and themes of the post-pandemic military shooter. As it happens, players will eventually be able to put their Agents in outfits based around Rainbow Six Siege, Splinter Cell and the forthcoming Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
As seen in the image below, Ubisoft Massive did a great job porting the outfits from the aforementioned games into The Division, with many fans no doubt eyeing the prominently placed sneak suit made popular by Splinter Cell‘s protagonist Sam Fisher. Fans looking to gear up in these pieces of garb will be able to do so soon enough, as the studio has declared that players who pre-order The Division‘s Underground DLC will get them.
This isn’t the first time that Ubisoft Massive developers have offered fans of The Division some cosmetic skins. As a matter of fact, shortly after the game’s launch earlier this March, the studio almost immediately had day one DLC on sale, with players being able to purchase several different styles of military uniforms and urban warfare attire.
Obviously, Ubisoft Massive is attempting to give fans who pre-order The Division‘s Underground expansion, which is the first instance of paid DLC for the game, a bonus for putting their money down. Of course, while the outfits are certainly neat-looking, some players may still be reeling from the seemingly near-constant state of maintenance that the action-MMO is in to fix glitches, so it’s possible a decent portion of the fan base might hold off on laying down their dough for the add-on just yet.
What do you think about The Division‘s outfits based on Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege, and Splinter Cell? Is it a good enough incentive to pre-order the game’s Underground expansion, or will you be waiting until the all clear sign is made to indicate that it’s free from the title’s litany of bugs? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
The Division is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
