on August 8, 2014 7:13 AM

Alongside anticipated titles from this year like Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed Unity, the new RPG/shooter hybrid The Division is set to bring a unique flair to Ubisoft’s slate of titles for 2015, and along with it a pretty accurate and realistic portrayal of New York City: luckily, you can see for yourself in a new video.

In a video published through the PlayStation Access YouTube channel, the new video takes viewers through The Division‘s painstaking recreations of New York City by comparing the in-game versions with its real-life landmarks, such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, the Subway stations of Midtown Manhattan, Madison Square Garden, the James Farley Post Office building, and many more iconic NYC areas.

The Division will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015 – in the meantime, you can check out the new comparison video of the real-life and digital versions of New York City below:
