You can bounty hunt rogue agents in The Division

Looking for a fun place to vacation next year? We do not recommend The Division’s Dark Zone, unless you find a lawless area of player conflict and terrifying threats an ideal destination.

A new blog post on the upcoming title talks about its specially designed PvP zone. The Dark Zone isn’t a mere pit in which to kill each other but a place where missions are assigned and separate teams have to decide to work together or against each other.

The most interesting mechanic of the Dark Zone is the rogue flag. Whenever a player attacks another player in the area, he’s flagged as a rogue for a period of time. For the duration of the flag, other players will get a reward bonus for killing the rogue. Ubisoft anticipates that some players may choose to operate as bounty hunters and track down rogue agents.

The Division is heading into beta in winter 2015 and will release next March.

Yeah Ubisoft have not had the best track record of late. That said the new Ghost Recon almost looks like it might not be terrible. Which is not something I wouldn’t have expected myself to be saying. 
Honor looked kind of interesting too, sort of Bushido Blade meets Chivalry with some Dynasty Warriors. I saw somebody saying that Jason VandeBerghe was working on it. He’s done some nifty melee stuff like Red Steel 2 on the Wii and he’s a big fan of Bushido Blade too. There’s a fair chance it might not actually suck either.
I feel the urge to start checking everyone for goatees just to make sure I’m in the right universe now. ;)

Lirik (popular twitch streamer) and his crew is going to have a field day with this; I can almost guarantee it considering how he interacts with other players in DayZ and such already…

It will be glorious (to watch) lmfao

Not a PVPer so won’t be going in the Dark Zone myself ever (zero appeal) but I shall be watching some twitch stream of it for sure as you know a mechanic like that is going to lead to some CRAZINESS.  People will be ganking the heck out of each other for each others loot. lol

I liked the backstab during the demo yesterday, that was great. Going to make for a lot of potentially interesting interactions…and frustrating ones.

Dystopiq deekay_zero Ubisoft always tries way to hard. They try to be hip and it’s just obnoxious.

Dystopiq Yeahhh they overacted what is no doubt going ot be extremely uneventful average gameplay “WHOA WE GOT THOSE GUYS OVER THERE” “DOn’T DO IT TRUST ME, THIS WAY”

And on top of that, no players would show up behind other players and NOT kill them. Denial of fun is what multiplayer is all about.
