Ubisoft's Xbox One/PS4/PC Game The Division Gets an Eerie E3 Teaser Trailer

Teaser trailer uses off-tune version of Christmas carol "Silent Night" for dramatic effect.

67 Comments

Ahead of E3 next week, Ubisoft has released a special teaser trailer for its upcoming third-person shooter, The Division. The eerie trailer uses a slightly off-tune version of popular Christmas carol "Silent Night" to set the mood.

Ubisoft will show off The Division during its E3 press conference on Monday, June 9 at 3 p.m. PDT, followed by a live developer Q&A to be held on Twitch on June 10 at 8 p.m. PDT. The publisher is also bringing games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew to E3.

The Division was recently delayed to a release sometime in 2015. Revealed at E3 2013, it is a third-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic New York. Ubisoft has said the title will feature an "unprecedented level of realism." For more on The Division, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Seriously Ubisoft? After you delay The Division to "sometime in 2015"

(it's only June of 2014 mind you)

you have the nerve to tease us with this? I call BS.

(BTW last Ghost Recon was a joke and Watch Dogs is a lame GTA knockoff. Quit screwin around ;) )

Never trust anyone's pre-release trailers, especially from E3.


All the publishers lie through their teeth. More so when it comes to console release's at E3, for which they show down sampled 4k trailers recorded from promotional builds running on high end PC's.


Ubisoft are bad for it but Sony are by far the worst. (4D gaming anyone?)

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> You're a bandwagon follower. Assassins Creed 3 was not that bad and it's mechanics are EXACTLY like AC4. GR:FS was not a terrible game. It has it's moments but it was not terrible. People just always look for something to hate on. The Last Splinter Cell was the absolute best of the series. Better than Chaos Theory.

This was one pretty crappy teaser... and wtf is the point of a teaser we already saw gameplay at the last E3.. just to remind people that this game still exists?

Very skeptical about this game for some reason... probably because Watch Dogs had one of the most blatantly dishonest marketing campaigns I've ever seen and ended up being the worst modern open world game I've ever had the displeasure of playing.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Wow ever play GTA? I tried that last one GTA4? Played the game for 5 mins and was glad I didn't buy the game as I put down the controller. Watch Dogs lets you go anywhere from min 1 and actually has a story.

I don't think The Division will look anything like what they're showing. Ubisoft has already demonstrated with Watch Dogs that they misrepresent their games for bigger sales.

<< LINK REMOVED >> My thoughts exactly. HOWEVER, I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt on this one. This time around, the game isn't being being made for the old consoles. Dunno if that will make a difference, though.

That's the biggest waste of my time I've had in a while. The only thing eerie about it was how crappy and worthless it was.

What is the point of watching Ubisoft trailers, teasers from E3 coverage. After Watchdogs digital lie and super poor optimization on the PC I am not inclined to believe that the final version of the Division will look as per released teasers/trailers. Ohhh yeah. Eat your own lies Ubi ! and give us a patch please, pretty please.

Don't think that i'm gonna be quiet with my opinnion. I'm not gonna be quiet because my unique opinnion is rightful. This is the internet and i have the right to my opinnion.

I really hope they don't hype up this game, then release some buggy, bland, mediocre game like they did with watch dogs.

<< LINK REMOVED >> why is everyone hating on WD so much? I'm about 15 hours in and I'm loving it. I haven't encountered a single bug yet, the graphics are solid, and the gameplay is fun. Go in the corner and cry because it doesn't look exactly like the E3 trailer.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> that;s your opinion, power to you. Gamespot, IGN, Polygon, Metacritic and many others gave WatchDogs 8/10 or better. It's a good game. I honestly can't figure out why the community hates this game so much.

It's a large open world, with fun gameplay and there's so much to do. Not just my opinion.

It better not have lame ass multiplayer as Watch Dogs did. Im not saying what Watch Dogs had was all bad, but the vs was something i would have expected from 10years ago; no pre-grouping for the 4v4?, so lame. Well, hopefully they show a lot of important things about the game, but 1/2 of it im sure will all be misleading.

I can't wait for this but theres really no sense in showing us videos and teasers for a game that won't be released for a year and a half.


Speaking of Tom Clancy, how bout telling me where my Rainbow Six Patriots is? Hmmm?
