The Division Update
Marcus (Hype Tank!): “It’s been said your goal is to create “the most detailed NYC ever seen” – how are you working to make this possible?”
Having the most detailed NYC is definitely our goal. New York City is so diverse and we want people to feel that when they explore the environment. To create this “true NYC”, we have been putting a lot of effort into gathering meaningful reference, data and any information that will help realize our vision. We film, take pictures, record sound; going so far as to create mathematical models of resonance data based on real locations. This way, when you’re in our game, you will really hear and feel what it’s like to actually be there. Of course, we still have to take into consideration the experience of our gamers to make it as fun as possible; finding the right balance between realism and a compelling game experience.
