It's always nice when various items from pop culture merge, but even more fun when a video game developer throws in an Easter egg from a random geeky thing, such as the animated series Adventure Time.
It seems that Adventure Time gets a nod in Tom Clancy's The Division, an online open world third-person shooter that's officially in beta right now.
And although beta players probably aren't supposed to share screenshots or information about the game, one player noticed something that needed sharing, and posted it on Reddit: a screenshot from the game that features a wall with a painting from Adventure Time. Don't worry, though, this player doesn't violate any NDA: Ubisoft released players from that agreement for its beta.
Adventure Time is an animated show on the Cartoon Network, a quirky series about a boy named Finn and his shape-shifting dog, Jake, who live in a post-apocalyptic world. Their adventures have them interacting with a variety of odd characters, such as Princess Bubblegum, the Ice King and Marceline the Vampire Queen.
Inspired by Dungeons & Dragons, Adventure Time premiered in 2010 and quickly became one of the most popular shows on Cartoon Network. Not only is a new season underway, but Cartoon Network also plans on turning it into a feature film.
When The Division releases next month, it's likely that it could topple Destiny as the most-played MMO out there (especially as more Destiny players become disillusioned with that game, thanks to things such as the addition of microtransactions and the delay of Destiny 2).
The Division takes place in New York, shortly after the outbreak of a virus, but this isn't another zombie apocalypse game. Players take on the roles of agents meant to handle the chaos that ensues after the outbreak starts wiping out the population, and they also take on other players to earn loot.
If that sounds a little confusing, Tech Times recently released 30 minutes of footage from the beta of the game to help players better understand The Division's story and gameplay.
The Division releases to the public March 8 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
