Created by author Alex Irvine, New York Collapse is described as a cross between a diary and “urban survivalist’s field guide” of sorts, complete with handwritten notes and artifacts discovered by the character April Kelleher.

She survived the pandemic, and in the meta novel, the character adds “cryptic clues” discovered which point to what’s “really going on” in The Division’s story.

A look at what to expect in the novel is in the trailer above and three pages from New York Collapse are below.

The book is available for pre-order through Amazon (US) (UK), Barnes & Noble and Chronicle Books.

The Division is out on PC, PS4 and Xbox One March 8. If you’re looking for like-minded folks to play the game with, head over to and give their LFG solution a try.
