The impending comic series for Tom Clancy’s The Division has gotten a little more info today. Catch up with what’s happening post-pandemic.
The Division might be the most uncomfortably-realistic scenario yet from the brand that is Tom Clancy. While previous franchises have either involved private wars or cloak and dagger scenarios, The Division is about bio-warfare. Is your skin crawling yet?
The Division’s version of the US has been ravaged by bioweapons. NYC is in tatters, and soon, Washington will be as well. Infused with co-op multiplayer gameplay, it’s a formula that’s been well received by both fans and press. And now of course, it’s a comic too.
Writer Christofer Emgård will be teaming with artist Fernando Baldó for a three issue mini-series. It’s one that seems like it will be building on what’s come before, while keeping events tied to a smaller scale story.
Months after a bioweapon attack devastated New York City, the Division agents are the last hope of a United States struggling to hold itself together. During a mission gone horribly wrong, Division Agent Caleb Dunne’s partner is gruesomely killed and Dunne vows to track down the mysterious woman responsible. As he gathers clues to her whereabouts, he uncovers a grave threat to a nation already on the brink of total collapse.
I love the ideas that’ve gone into The Division, but I’m not a fan of multiplayer gaming. So of course I’m into this. If you are too, you can catch the first issue of Tom Clancy’s The Division: Extremis Malis on January 9th.
