The Division May Include All New York - Including Staten Island

Staten Island is an interesting setting for this, given the game's scenario, as well as what Staten Island used to have that could be used in the plot.

A fan seems to have made an interesting discovery for Tom Clancy’s The Division.

As you can see in this map below, the game may include all the sections of New York, including Staten Island. Staten Island was clearly labeled at the bottom part of the map of Brooklyn, highly suggesting that there will be a point when Division agents make their way to the area. It is worth noting that New Jersey, which is also in Brooklyn’s vicinity, is not found in the same map.

The map has unexplained lines emanating from Brooklyn into Staten Island as well, as well as other lines going outwards of the city. This may be a visualization of how the pandemic has spread outwards to the city, and may also indicate the directions and / or paths you and other agents will be taking.

One wonders what awaits players if they can go into a playable Staten Island. Of course, it is one of New York’s five boroughs. Here are some real life facts about the island that may play into the game:

·         The island used to have the largest landfill in the world, Fresh Kills Landfill, although at this time the area is being remade into a public park, with much of the area now being filled with vegetation.

·         The Navy also used to have a base in it, simply called Naval Station New York. This was closed in 1994 and converted into a mixed-use waterfront neighborhood.

·         You can enter Staten Island from Brooklyn via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the ferry that takes commuters and visitors all the way to Manhattan.

So, do you guys think Ubi took the extra mile and will incorporate these into the game? Or am I looking too deep into this? Share your thoughts in the comments. The Division is coming to Windows, Playstation 4, and Xbox One in 2015.
