Ubisoft’s open-world shooter, The Division, looks good on its own, but it also has the first companion tablet app to actually pique my interest. While players roam a virus-stricken New York City on their consoles, tablet users can take control of a drone and provide air strikes and health drops from above. The tablet view isn’t some cheap abstraction either; it’s an top-down look at the actual game world, updated in real time. It seems like a clever way to stay connected with your squad even when your own console is out of reach.
Release Date: 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One
