The Division 2 - Make Washington D.C. Great Again


#21

Does anyone play PvE or PvP survival anymore? Last time I played (sometimes in 2017 iirc) I’d sit for five minutes in the queue until being placed in match by myself.


#22

Yeah, absolutely! What’s your PSN name?


#23

Same as my forum name: merryprankster


#24

Preorders have opened up, and you’ve got your choice of five editions:

It’s hard to get excited until I find out how badly they completely fuck up single player again. But otherwise I’m looking forward to the game. It’s too bad Gears of War 4 couldn’t have adopted the cover system Division uses. Division 1 has best cover system ever, while Gears of war 4 is garbage.


#27

Garbage is a bit hyperbolic as the cover system in Gears is just fine. I prefer the ones in Tomb Raider and Ghost Recon Wildlands though: soft cover where you automatically take cover instead of snapping hard like in The Division and Gears, as it makes the system a lot more fluid and flexible.


#28

It’s garbage

It’s clunky.

It’s a 360 era junk system that works like shit and the whole game feels dated because of it.


#29

The cover system in The Divsion is far more clunkier compared to Wildlands than Gears compared to The Divsion. And, honestly, I can’t even remember that much differences between those two games (at least with a controller).


#30

They’re still showing the same environment. Really like to see more of the city.


#31

‘Story’ trailer. There are apparently bad people and you should shoot them. In D.C.


#32

So they mean the current administration?

#34

I like the Dark Zone changes they’re working on - 3 separate Dark Zones, each week two of the three will have stat normalization to even up the playing field, while the third will be a total free-for-all along the lines of the first game.


#35

My CTRL-F found zero instances of Single player or solo. Dakfuq. Perhaps it’s better in every way except for the most important way.


#36

I imagine it will be fully as playable solo as the first one was.


#37

That’s too bad. Guess I’ll pass. That’s okay, not interested in a DC setting anyway.


#38

That’s fair, I understand a lot of people found playing the first game solo to be a pretty frustrating experience. Looks like I’ll be finding out firsthand how the sequel plays since I don’t think my friends are buying.


#39

I am interested to buy but yeah, hope they made solo playing easier. I don’t want to die so often.


#40

Solo wasn’t really an issue in the first game, as I played the Xbox version solo without any major issues (while I played the PC version with friends). And the matchmaking for the campaign missions was great too if you didn’t want to play solo.
