Jordan says, "After hearing so many good things about The Division’s Closed Beta, I was eager to sink my teeth into the Open Beta which launched recently on PSN. I got pretty much what I expected: a deeply customizable tactical shooter with the requisite slick presentation and controls one would expect from a modern AAA release. What I never expected, however, was how much I would become enraptured by the world during my brief time with The Division. I ended up wanting to explore every nook and cranny, because the more I explored, the more I found that my character wasn’t the central focus of the stories in The Division, but the world was.
While vague and not really fleshed out in the beta, the story of The Division is fairly simple. After a catastrophic chemical attack in New York during Black Friday, the city is left in a state of Bedlam with gangs running amok and paranoia running wild. Playing as a member of the mysterious “Division,” players are tasked with exploring the city and doing side missions with the eventual goal of reclaiming the city from the madness."
