Ubisoft’s most ambitious ongoing project, Tom Clancy’s The Division, continues to pique our interest. E3 introduced a disturbing cinematic trailer focused on the fall of New York and some engaging gameplay as players attempt to take back the city.

The UbiBlog caught up with game director Ryan Barnard, who gives us a bit more insight into the Cleaners. These slightly mad thugs seek out the most infected areas to burn bodies and eliminate any living people they suspect of carrying the contagion.

We also get a look at some of the technology that players will have at their disposal when the game arrives next year. For more on The Division, check out our additional preview coverage from E3.
