The highly-anticipated and long-awaited The Division is bringing its post-apocalyptic vision of New York City to the masses tomorrow with the game’s official launch this week, but if you happen to be in The Big Apple and can’t wait to jump into the game tonight, the party will all begin at the game’s big New York City launch event tonight.
New details have been revealed about the previously-announced launch event for The Division, which will take place at The Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The launch event will officially begin starting at 9pm ET and run past midnight when the game is officially released, where those looking to attend can begin lining up an hour before at 8pm.
Aside from being among the first to pick up the game at its launch, attendees will also be treated to “an evening of food, music, and prizes plus gameplay and special guests,” including Ubisoft producer Tony Sturtzel, The Division game director Terry Spier, and Microsoft’s Larry Hryb (“Major Nelson”). NYC-based Twitch streamers Swiftor and Futureman Gaming will also be in attendance to celebrate at the event and streaming on-site.
The event will also provide a limited edition The Division poster to the first 200 guests at the event, while “exclusive” items based around the game will also be given away throughout the night to attendees.
While those that may not be able to attend the event in person will miss out on some of the exclusive physical goodies, those interested in the event can also watch a livestream of the game’s launch on Twitch.
The Division will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8th, 2016.
Stay tuned for pictures and more as DualShockers will be in attendance to celebrate The Division‘s big launch tonight in New York City.
