Watch the Contagion and Outbreak-esque story of Tom Clancy's The Division unfold in this dark trailer focusing on a horrific epidemic plaguing New York.

This story trailer for The Division sets the tone for Tom Clancy's dark tale. "They said it was just the flu… But it turned out to be something else entirely…” The Division takes place in a quarantined New York where there are a collection of unfortunate people still within the city limits who haven't succumbed to disease. With the military and police gone, bandits and looters aplenty have taken over the city. There are also plenty of innocent folks just trying to survive within the city limits who are prey to these nefarious sort. As a special agent, it's up to you and your squadron to set up a survivor's camp, save the innocent and ward off any would-be threats.
