Massive Entertainment’s Lead Game Designer Mathias Karlson and Design Director Axel Rydby sat down for a chat at the end of November to answer more questions about the upcoming post-pandemic stricken world of Tom Clancy’s The Division. While some of the questions discussed have been answered in the past, the team also touched on some other aspects of the game such as the immersion and balancing the RPG elements in a shooter type game, the importance of a good co-op experience, communication, and the open-world setting of a disaster-stricken New York following the collapse of society.
One question asked that led to an answer that only leads to more speculation was about the possibility of using vehicles. The answer given by Axel Rydby is one that could mean that fuel may be a limited resource in the game, one of which you’ll have to decide how to use it. Would you use it for a power generator, clean water, or to fuel a car? Without confirming anything, that does pose an interesting dynamic to the survival aspect. That’s assuming it’s a planned feature and not just speculation. In any case, you can watch the full video below.
