New Preview Screens for Tom Clancy’s The Division Companion App

The latest update to come out of Germany deals with Tom Clancy’s The Division and its companion app for tablets. Much like Battlefield 4′s commander mode, or Dead Rising 3′s smartphone app, The Division’s companion app will allow gamers to interact with the game world from the comfort of their tablet.

Microsoft has released a few new screens for this app, which can be seen after the break. (Android, iPad, PC, PS4, Tech, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Xbox One)

Second screens will fade.... everyone thinks its cool right now. but after playing with it for a while no one will use it... just more ways to try and suck money out of us in the future once they see if ppl like it...

but it will fade like the wii

I had a second screen on my high-tech keyboard once. Crysis had that feature. I looked at it about 3 times in my life to see information that was already available on my main screen. Second screens are a gimmick.

Plus, looking at your second screen throws you off balance when you're playing a game. When you look up you have to reorient yourself. It just doesn't work well and it's much better to have all the information on screen. I cannot imagine using a second screen in an online game

Yeah I remember that on my PC screen. I also think one of the Battlefields did similar, pointless.

I kinda disagree cause I can see a lot of causal gamers using the tablet to play. My sister love touch based games (the whole reason y she bought a DS) and I'm pretty sure i can get her to play on the tablet while my brothers and I play on our consoles.

Same thing can be done with a child, wife, girlfriend, or any other causal gamer

I don't think you'll be able to play on the console and remotely at the same time. I think it would require the console to run two games in parallel.

I don't really know though. Can you?

I dont think it can both run on the console. I think its tablet only. Thats y I would let my sister play the companion app on her ipad

I have to agree. Your definitely not gonna stop or pause the game just to look over to second screen on another device. Youll get the same results in the ingame options.
