We've featured a number of new games announced at E3 this week, but we've so far overlooked one of the best demos shown there: Ubisoft's The Division, the latest installment in the never-ending Tom Clancy franchise. Mr. Clancy must be a very busy man.

Quite nice, I think, other than the voice actors being hopped up on Xanax. Way too mellow.
The game runs on Ubisoft's new Snowdrop engine, and it looks to be taking good advantage of the latest GPU hardware. The Division planned for release next year, although there's some question about whether Ubisoft will be offering a PC version.
