Shaun Of The Dead Easter Egg in Tom Clancy's The Division

Someone at Ubisoft has a great sense of humor as they planted an easter egg in Tom Clancy's The Division that pays tribute to Shaun of the Dead, the 2004 zombie-comedy written and directed by Edgar Wright and starred Simon Pegg (Star Trek).

In the film, Shaun and his group are nearly at The Winchester, but they'll have to get over some fences to reach their target. Shaun gets a bit cocky and says the memorable line: "What's the matter, David? Never taken a shortcut before?" He then tries to leap over the first fence, which quickly collapses. In the game, that same line is used when players are trapped in the "alleys between 23rd and 22nd Street." How's that for a slice of fried gold?

Check out the "Shaun of the Dead Easter Egg" in the video below.

Tom Clancy's The Division hits stores March 8, 2016 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you pre-order, you're guaranteed a spot in the multiplayer beta ahead of the game's release.
