Massive Entertainment reveals how a pandemic destroys The Division's New York

CGI trailer teases the game's harrowing story

Massive Entertainment has shown off a new video which tells the story of how New York is destroyed by a pandemic to become the region we see in The Division.

It's a pretty rough journey of quarantined buildings looting and eventually the city being left to its own devices.

It also hints at how teamwork will help players survive in the game which is quite possibly Ubisoft's most ambitious online-only title ever.

It's shaping up to be a really impressive experience and we hope that its delay into 2015 will only help Massive Entertainment realise this vision more fully.

We need to talk... about 'gamers'
Because that term has a much wider definition than it used to.
