Weather, Time Of Day Can Impact The Division's Gameplay

Weather is often a component in modern video games.

But perhaps none you've ever played will have such realistic weather and time effects as Tom Clancy's The Division.

In a new developer blog, the team talks about how both the current time and weather can really impact the experience. For instance, senior game designer Fredrik Thylander says storms will limit visibility and worse storms can even hinder features like aim assist and detection ranges for both players and AI.

Characters will even prepare for inclement weather, presumably by bringing clothing and equipment into the field designed for such contingencies. They also talk a bit about how the time of day will cause players to "experience civilians and wildlife differently." Obviously, your surroundings will become that much more forbidding depending on whether or not you're wandering about in the sun or suffering through a blizzard.

The Division has been looking really great for a while, despite a few delays. Even other developers like DICE, Bungie and Hideo Kojima have expressed their interest. The anticipated title is now scheduled to launch on March 8, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
