Tom Clancy's The Division is a classless RPG, according to Ubisoft, with the game encouraging players to experiment with various talents rather than locking them to one skill tree.
"We like to call ourselves a classless RPG," says game director Ryan Barnard released yesterday by Ubisoft, "so we don't want to front-load our players with a choice right when you start the game, when you don't know how the game works or how you might want to play."
"We'd rather have you discover how you'd like to play - what weapon types you like, what skills you like, and give you the freedom to make the choice yourself," he concludes.
The video also details one faction you'll be testing those skills against - the fearsome Cleaners. These guys are dead set on removing any traces of the virus which has ravaged The Division's version of New York City. That essentially means barbecuing anybody they suspect of carrying said virus with a flamethrower. They're a little unhinged.
There's a few more bits and pieces of information in the video if you're interested in the open-world shooter. The Division is set to come out next year on PC and consoles.
