It’s been a month since Ubisoft released their latest Tom Clancy branded title, The Division. Agents everywhere were activated and poured into New York City with the goal of liberating the Manhattan from the clutches of a terrorist’s modified version of the smallpox virus.
Numbers are a universal truth and when it comes to The Division they show us that players have been playing, a lot. Over on the Ubiblog, Ubisoft Massive has shared some interesting information on everything from the number of enemies killed to the most popular shirt players have equipped.
What is perhaps most surprising about these numbers is that they show that a 57.2% of players play The Division solo. This is very strange given the game’s emphasis on cooperative play, not to mention that some of the later encounters in the end game are brutal and therefore require cooperation. What these numbers do not tell us is the amount of players have actually reached the endgame content, or if these are players that have picked up The Division and only played through part of the way. It also is unclear if these solo/co-op percentages represent individual play sessions or overall total play time.
The next big update for the title arrives tomorrow April 12th and brings with a whole host of changes including the new Incursion (The Division‘s version of endgame raids like the ones you find in Destiny) Falcon Lost, which sees players infiltrate an underground facility located in the Stuyvesant region in the South Eastern corner of the world map. The official description of the Falcon Lost invites players to “Find the missing Joint Task Force patrol and stop the Last Man Battalion from massing inside the underground facility.”
No doubt these statistics will continue to grow with the release of another free update coming sometime after tomorrow’s update, and the game’s three paid expansions (Underground, Survival, and Last Stand) coming throughout the year.
The Division is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
