The Division

Ubisoft has announced that their upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online open-world title, The Division will not feature Player Trading System at launch. Player Trading System is a feature that allows users to buy and sell items with one another. This was revealed by Ubisoft’s creative director Julian Gerighty during an interview with GamesRadar. Julian told GamesRadar that The Division will not include Player Trading System, at least not at launch.

“It’s the reality of production. Some features make it, some features don’t, ” said Julian. Julian also added that instead of this, they came down to a “priority of different features.” Though he stated that The Division will get a number of updates after its release and the Player Trading System might make its way into the game through one of them.

Along with this, Ubisoft Massive’s creative director Magnus Jansen recently told VG247 that The Division will not include Microtransactions. According to him, they don’t want to include something through which players can pay to get better gear or equipment, as they want everyone to get the same experience.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is set to launch on March 8, 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A closed beta for the game is set to take place at the end of this month, on January 28th for Xbox One while PC and PS4 players can jump into the beta on January 29th.
