The Division 2 releases one more trailer ahead of launch

The last of whoever.

We’ve had an open beta, so reason would stand that we’re now nearing a full launch for The Division 2, but is a game ever truly launched without an official launch trailer beforehand? Oh, wait nevermind, there it is.

Yes, The Division 2 is continuing to roil up excitement for its brand of online multiplayer scooting, looting, and shooting with a launch trailer full of the usual trappings like cinematic gameplay shots and licensed music. There’s even PR full of excited flapping and promise that this game will bring a little something for everyone:

“Building upon more than two years of listening to and learnings from The Division community, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will offer a substantial campaign that organically flows into a robust endgame, to create a cohesive and meaningful experience for all types of players.”

The Division 2 officially goes live across all current platforms worldwide on Friday, March 15th. You can take in the trailer below and maybe guess what the song they used in the background is.

Licensed Music. It didn’t work for me in this trailer.

So far, the only ones to really get me on were The Outer Worlds with Iggy Pop and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with Queens of the Stone Age.

Also: Both Destiny’s with Zeppelin & the Beastie Boys just go without saying. I mean c’mon…It’s Led-fucking-Zeppelin. Just a shame the games didn’t live up to the legendary status of such artists.

But yaaaaay….Division 2…yaaaaaaaay.

Gonna give it a couple months to get things ironed out. Those Black Tusk guys were way too spongy and omfg, so many drones.

Hate to break it to you but from what I read, those things you mentioned just get worse. One thing to note though is that they expected people to take on the Dark Zone missions and PvP gameplay. The loot drops were far better in the Dark Zone than in the demo PvE missions. I went back through the last PvE mission after getting gold/purple gear drops in a few hours of PvP play and it was a breeze killing Black Tusks compared to wearing the blues/greens you get in PvE.

I was talking about the endgame, post-specialization mission Black Tusk—where they give you a char with high-end gear to test with.

Ah, didn’t get a chance to try it but I do recall others saying it was not intended to do solo’able as it’s considered group raid content.

Well, that would explain it…A good player could solo the parts that I got though, but I definitely couldn’t.

It’s an RPG first, shooter second. Always has been, always will be. The game isn’t about popping guys with headshots and insta-killing them. Enemies have HP, just like any RPG, and need to be whittled down.

What’s the difference between this and any other medieval RPG where you beat on an orc for 30 seconds until it dies? People have no problem with the latter, but when a shooting game does it then it’s bad.

I quite liked the original although I always played it more casually and as a second game, so I guess I’ll give this one a shot too.

I remember Division 1’s gameplay trailer where they used actors to do voice overs of the players, which was hilarious because no gamer actually talks like that.

I wish they did the same thing for Division 2’s trailer for nostalgia’s sake.

The beta ran well but I have to say I was completely bored after the first main mission. There just doesn’t seem to be much to this game and Anthem has made me gun shy.

blah blazh

It really opens up after the first few main missions

You mean it becomes more than just a cover based looter shooter?

What were you expecting from a sequel to a cover based loot shooter?

A launch trailer that’s all in-game footage is always reassuring that they are confident in their product. The pre-orders incentives for TD2 are welming so I’ve decided to wait until after launch to get reviews before I decide to buy, which I probably will. This is the first solid looking multiplayer purchase game of the year so far.
