i'm sad

The first real beta test for The Division 2 kicks off on February 7th, but fans have got some new compiled information about the game courtesy of Reddit. Players will be holing up in the White House as the game’s base of operations, with the events of the sequel taking place seven months after the events of the first game. So one you retake the White House, you’re free to liberate more civilian settlements and start putting the city back on the path to rebuilding.

Not that this will be easy; endgame players will be moving from a focus on individualized raider parties and malcontents to fighting off the highly advanced and organized Black Tusks. The story will supposedly take around 40 hours to complete, with a great deal of post-launch content planned to continue the storyline and give you new things to shoot. You can see the first glance at how this will look in action on a special development stream today if you can’t wait until the 7th to get your hands on the game.

All they’ve said in the video describes the gameplay of The Division 1. “Base building” (i.e. unlocking perks for your characters via enabling facilities in your headquarters), “gathering NPC allies” (unlocking wings in your base) etc. – all of this is in the first version.
Mechanically these are practically identical games with corrected graphics, numbers and a new map. I guess it’s happening because the devs couldn’t (or didn’t want to) invent sustainable money making scheme for the existing game outside of initial sales after player numbers have dropped by 85% in just three months.

Nonetheless TD2 is going to be good – exactly because it’s a corrected copy of TD1 which became a very good game after multiple patches.

This is one of the few games on my “must play” list this year. I hope it’s as good as the first one.

WYSIWYG. Ubisoft is not a good guy publisher but they have done well to not overhype, show that it’s still The Division 1 with new locations, mechanics and polish. If you’ve played the first game, watching the videos so far, you know what your going to get.

I would not be disappointed if it was more of the same with more story content to shoot and loot my way through. Just give me a detailed world to stalk through along with an interesting story to go with it and I will be fairly happy.

While Ubi isn’t blameless, I do feel like I trust them more than any other major publisher at the moment. EA, Activision, and Bethesda are the only other ones I truly compare Ubisoft to, and of those four I’m probably least pissed at Ubi on a regular basis.

They’ve been known to release things too early and in a buggy/incomplete state, but I feel like all the games I’ve bought from them eventually deliver on the open world promise and offer satisfying gameplay
