Tom Clancy’s The Division won’t restrict you to certain places in its open world due to your level. It also won’t have loading screens, which allows for a seamless and smooth experience.
Ubisoft Massive’s Community Developer Hamish Bode revealed the news in a recent interview. He said that the game doesn’t have any place that is unlocked after a certain level, however, you will have a hard time trying to go into areas which need better and more advanced gear.
“The game is open to an extent that you can go anywhere you want from the start. You can go in any direction, you are not gated. So in terms of open world – very!”
“Yes, there will be parts of the world that will be too difficult for you to accomplish what you need to. So you can go to other areas, but good luck.”
Bode continued to talk about the game’s PvP area, Darkness Zone. Once you leave the normal places on the map and enter it, matchmaking happens in the background and you are ready to fight.
“So there is no loading screens, we are on a team doing our missions and collecting loot, then we enter the Darkness Zone. This is an PvP area where matchmaking all happens behind the scenes. You will be in a zone where you cannot tell who is nice who is going to cause problems. It’s all one seamless experience.”
Tom Clancy’s The Division releases on 8 March 2016 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
