UPDATE 13/1/16 8.45am: Here's yesterday's leaked trailer, now in officially published Ubisoft-o-vision:

ORIGINAL STORY 12/1/16 3.05pm: It's been a long wait for The Division, but now - eight weeks from release - Ubisoft looks set to finally draw back the curtain on its post-apocalyptic online shooter.

A new Italian trailer for the game popped up online this afternoon and was quickly pulled - but not before it was hosted elsewhere.

The three minute video includes our best look yet at the game's gunplay and New York open world.

Freshly-revealed areas include a ruined train station and underground metro, as well as the game's more familiar snowy streets.

There's also a good look at The Division's safe zones, areas where players can relax, talk to NPCs, stock up and team up with friends before journeying back out into dangerous territory.

You'll face enemies with riot shields and robot gun turrets. You can also be set on fire by foes with flamethrowers or incendiary grenades.

The Division's release date is finally rolling around - it's set for 8th March, with a public beta expected to take place before. A private alpha test took place before Christmas, although only for a select few on Xbox One.

It won't be too long until Ubisoft releases its new The Division trailer officially, but until then - you'll find it elsewhere online.
