Tom Clancy's The Division 2 (PS4/XBO/PC)

  • Youtube Video

    Put a couple hours into it yesterday, my first impressions are excellent!

    I never played the first one so I can't compare but it feels very good to play if you're into "cover shooters". The game looks amazing, there's soooo much detail in the environments. I feel like most of this stuff is often wasted on games like that though, since players will mostly run around and focus on getting from A to B as fast as possible, but I appreciate the effort. There's even hidden collectibles and extra loot to encourage exploration.

    The first proper mission I played was surprisingly long and engaging too. If this level of quality is representative of the entire main story, it feels like a game worth picking up even if you have no intention of staying for the endgame. Haven't tried playing co-op yet, maybe later today!

    Anyone else planning to pick it up?

  • After trying out the first game for a bit recently, I'm now interested in picking this game up. Still waiting for the reviews though, I need to find out how fun it is for solo players. I'll probably get DMC V first too so it might be a while until I get this game.

  • Another agent reporting in!

    I have played 350 hours of TD1 on PS4 (starting with patch 1.8, actually, and it was my most played game in 2018) and from what I have seen and played so far (~7 hours) TD2 seems to be really, really good. Playing on a PS4 Pro with an external USB3 SSD and in contrast to the betas it has been running very smooth for me and without any problems or hitches.

    I have only done the first main mission yet, though. I will take my sweet time exploring the environment and the city, which seems awesome so far. No need to rush, taking a knee. :-)

  • I am level 24 at the moment and kudos to Massive and Ubisoft, the game is amazing!

  • Going back and forth trying to decide if I want to get this or not

  • @dmcmaster Watch the latest Frame Trap, Huber will sell you on it!

  • Still not my cup of tea because I rarely play games online with friends but I have to say, Division 2 does sound like an honestly solid co-op game. The art direction is pretty solid and they gameplay systems look to make for some fun challenging scenarios.

    I think of all the loot shooters, this one is the most appealing to me. I think I would have liked this back in grade 10 when I had time.

  • @dipset You can easily play it solo if you want to. In fact, that is what I did 95% of the time so far in TD2. In the first game I played more with random groups for grinding and loot drops in the endgame (which was fine and without problems) but so far I stick to running solo because at the moment I just want to explore the amazing city and missions on my own pace.

  • Is there an Easy Allies clan or Discord for Division 2? I caved and bought it :-)

  • @wrynnax The one with Huber in it is full, totally don't know about any other EZA clans if there's any. Maybe this forum should make one specifically.

    After watching the Huber Syndrome and the latest Frame Trap, I think I'm sold. Hopefully I can get this soon.

  • Picked this up for 5 US$ a few days ago, played for a couple hours already and have just reached level 6. It's pretty great so far.

    The gunplay is much more fun that it looks. It's not the flashiest shooter in town, but the weapon feedback and variety are solid, and they did a good job of portraying the enemies as absolute assholes.

    From what I have explored so far, Washington feels pretty dense in terms of activities, and the amount of objects, debris and whatnot does so much to sell the post-apocalypse vibe. The world's structure seems to be in line with other Ubisoft open world games, and I'm cool with it since the structure actually fits the theme of the game.

    I like that the game didn't immediately overwhelm me with all of it's systems. I think it does a good job of easing me in, unlike another looter shooter I played sometime ago.

    The story and characters are meh at best so far, but the presentation is not too distracting so I can live with it.

    I think playing this actually made me a bit hyped for Massive Entertainment's Star Wars game. I don't think I would be too hyped if it's another loot focused game, but I think they definitely can make a great SW game. Hopefully this game can keep up the momentum as it goes, I'm pretty hooked right now.
