If you’ve been following The Divison as tightly as many have, you already know the game is going to be massive, and many already know that Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid, Zone of the Enders) stated he was impressed by the game and that it made him feel he had to work harder on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain(via Ubiblog).
To help draw more interest in the game, Ubisoft has announced today that the live-action film was developed by them, produced by Corridor Digital in collaboration with top talen, RocketJump and devinsupertramp. The film will be called Tom Clancy’s The Division: Agent Origins. The show will show the backstory behind the four Division agents and will be viewable on January 19th, exclusively for Amazon Prime members starting today. The show is a thirty-minute short film, as well as five minute exclusive scenes via the Amazon Video app on TV’s, connected devices and even mobile devices. Don’t have any of the above? Just head on over to Amazon Prime Video to get into the show!
“We’re excited to be able to offer our content across multiple platforms,” said Corridor Digital’s Niko Pueringer. “It has been an adventure to bring the world of Tom Clancy’s The Division to life.”
“Agent Origins and this first of its kind collaboration with Amazon is exciting and we’re thrilled that Amazon Prime members will be able to take advantage of watching exclusive footage that won’t be available anywhere else,” said Adam Novickas, VP of marketing at Ubisoft. “Agent Origins will provide the opportunity to introduce the game lore to consumers and immerse Amazon members into the world of The Division before the game’s anticipated release.”
Tom Clancy’s The Division will launch on March 8, 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. Stay tuned for our upcoming review of Tom Clancy’s The Division.
