Earlier today, Ubisoft took the stage during Microsoft’s E3 press conference to showcase a new gameplay demo for The Division. 

But during their own conference? They revealed the story behind the game in a new cinematic trailer. Focusing on the cause of the outbreak that ruined New York and created the setting for the game, the trailer showcases how things went bad via a time-lapse, before going into the main characters behind the game.

You can view the full trailer below, and tell us what you think in the comments!
