Posted by Rocky on Wednesday, July 3 2013

This has been pretty much well advertised and well recieved by the PC community, but if you haven't already heard, Ubisoft's latest Tom Clancy title "The Division" is currently under petition to appear on the PC.

Currently only slated for next gen consoles, PC gamers are rightly grumpy that they are to be excluded from this new Clancy title, that seems to use a fair bit of Future Soldier assets in the gameplay.

The petition has already passed 100,000 signatures, so add your name to the list now and let's have this great looking title on the PC.

If you need more persuasion, The Division is coming to you from Massive Entertainment, the source of the fantastic PC title World in Conflict.
