The Division closed alpha footage shows lots of wandering around snowy New York


Update Dec 21st: Ubisoft have pulled the videos from YouTube with a copyright claim.  

Despite it being an age since Tom Clancy’s The Division was announced, we’ve not really seen all that much of the game in action. You can remedy that now with forty minutes of footage that has leaked from the current closed beta.

Prefer your MMOs a little more traditional? You’ll find something great in our roundup of the best MMORPGs on PC.

The closed alpha has been going for a couple of weeks, and non-disclosure agreements were part of the deal so don’t expect this footage to hang around forever. The two videos show a sole players exploring districts of the game’s open-world New York, and embarking on some quests. The MMO feel is certainly there, with NPCs to hand out missions and vendors to purchase new equipment from.

Thanks, Polygon.
