Get ready to start worrying about the bacteria found on everyday objects.


The Division has a new viral marketing push that aims to highlight how easy it is for viruses to spread using everyday items such as banknotes. This is thematically appropriate for the game’s story, which focuses on the breakout of a deadly epidemic.

The campaign begins with a new trailer as well as a website that claims to tell the story of the money you have in your wallet. If you go to the site and type in the value and serial number of any cash you have, the site tells you about the sort of substances found on the surface of it, and they’re not pretty.

Alternatively, you could watch the trailer below.
