Tom Clancy’s The Division developer Ubisoft Massive has told VG247’s Sam Clay all about the shooter’s “revolutionary” companion apps, which will see players getting involved via Android & iOS.

During the clip, the developers told us that from a tablet or supported device, players will be able to view the game running from a top-down perspective as an overhead drone. You will be able to upgrade your drone and earn unlocks just like levelling up a character in the game.

From there they will be able to debuff and mark enemies and shoot at them in real-time. They will also be able to help their friendly squad-mates by spotting enemies, buffing them and healing them.

What do you think of The Division’s asynchronous drone gameplay? Let us know below.
