Massive Entertainment’s Tom Clancy’s The Division remains one of the most played online games since it launched in 2016. The game dropped groups of online friends in a post-apocalyptic virus ravaged New York that hosted some of the most fun firefights for survival. Ahead of the game’s upcoming sequel, Dark Horse Comics is expanding on the story of this world at war.

Dark Horse and Ubisoft tapped writer Christofer Emgård (The Whispering Dark, Mirror’s Edge: Exordium), artist Fernando Baldó (Deep Gravity, Thief), colorist Michael Atiyeh (Conan the Avenger, Green lantern: Rebirth) to further explore the world of Tom Clancy’s The Division in Tom Clancy’s The Division: Extremis Malis.

Months after a bioweapon attack devastated New York City, the Division agents are the last hope of a United States struggling to hold itself together. During a mission gone horribly wrong, Division Agent Caleb Dunne’s partner is gruesomely killed and Dunne vows to track down the mysterious woman responsible. As he gathers clues to her whereabouts, he uncovers a grave threat to a nation already on the brink of total collapse. -Dark Horse PR
