When it comes to unveiling a virtual map for a video game, we're starting to see a lot of creativity.

For example, Techland is revealing the huge new map in the Dying Light expansion The Following piece by piece, as part of an innovative Twitch/Twitter campaign .

Now, even though it's a bit more straightforward, Ubisoft has offered us a very slick glimpse of the map in Tom Clancy's The Division . As the company detailed on their blog , you can check out the environment in the upcoming tactical multiplayer shooter via Google Maps-like interactivity. You can find it at the game's official website ; it will allow you to get up-close-and-personal with the post-pandemic streets of New York City. You can learn more about certain locations and even obtain information about how the in-game weapons and systems will operate.

If you're wondering why you're only seeing Midtown Manhattan, it's because that's the only section that will be included when the game launches. Ubisoft has explained why we're not getting the other boroughs, and it's primarily because Manhattan is plenty big enough. Also, don't forget about the newly revealed live-action prequel series .

The Division is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 8. A beta test kicks off on January 29 for PS4 users.
