#5: Tom Clancy’s The Division

the division survival

Even though The Division lagged a little at launch due to its repetitiveness and enemy AIs, now Ubisoft has patched the game with some nice DLCs. Both the Underground DLC and the Survival DLC rose high up to fans’ expectation. The Division allows you and other three players to join co-op and take on enemy AIs in a devastating New York City while you can go PvP on the Dark Zone. As an open-world game, the Division is large enough for its map.
