The Division still has car doors that close when you run into them

The Division

Important news from Microsoft's E3 press conference: The Division still has car doors that close when you run into them. Last time we heard from Ubisoft's open-world survival-shooter, we saw a police car have its door shut by a man who was shimmying alongside the vehicle.

Today, in an exciting turn of events, we bear witness to a taxi cab the door of which is shut by a woman crouch-running into it. The Division: Car Doors That Shut is scheduled for a 2015 release.

Ubisoft's on-stage demo showed off some other aspects of the co-operative third person shooter, besides the car doors. Some unsettlingly well-acted voice-chatter demonstrated the need for communication between players in order to progress through battlegrounds strewn with cars and other obstacles, as four survivors fought to reach a giant safehouse.

There's a backstory to be discovered through techno-wizardry. In an abandoned subway station, players can project a holographic scene of the last moments before the area was abandoned, revealing a bunch of commuters pegging it towards the exits. More clever HUD elements can be seen when players flip through contextual menus to select skills, the last of which shown is a sort of cluster bomb useful for taking down heavier enemies.

Ubisoft's drawn a bit of flak for having hyped the socks off of the distinctly boring Watch_Dogs with fancy, overselling trailers, so it's probably wise to be somewhat wary of promises being made for The Division. Also, Ubisoft proudly announced that somebody has paid somebody else a lot of money to make sure the Xbox One receives some exclusive DLC — your standard anti-consumer rubbish. Cynicism aside, those car doors really are something else.

Its this sort of paradigm breaking tech which makes Ubisoft the most loved of all game developers....

In all seriousness, I think they got off veeeeeeery lightly with the Watch_Dogs bait and switch. Never ever buying a Ubi game again.

I will be giving away a copy of Watch_Dogs soon.. when my new graphics card arrives. Watch the forum for an announcement shortly!

Anyway, looks very nice, now let us hope it keeps looking that way.
