Yeah I dived back in to work on finishing up the PvE story. Game tells me I am at 63% so I have a ways to go. It’s a ghost town trying to find people to help with main story missions. I want to like this game so much, but I just struggle immensely playing it solo.
Coming back to this after the Division 2 beta, the setting of NYC over the winter holidays is just so much better that what I’ve seen of the Division 2.
Oh and hey an Ubisoft office Safehouse!
So a friend told me to just go experience the visuals of the DZ while I am playing now, else I probably never will bother, so decided to put on my big boy pants and do that.
Overall it has some of the most dark/bleak/depressing sights in the entire game, and if anything it makes me a bit mad to see how its lost/wasted on the PvP portion on the game. How many people made it up to the DZ09 area and just looked around?
I spend an hour today sneaking my way around DZ01 thru DZ09 and once you get far up north it you can really see that the shit hit the fan. It’s pretty easy to avoid combat up that direction as squads of enemies are less frequent. But any one of them can 1 shot kill you it seems.
Up till DZ08 body bags were mostly laying out in certain areas and trash/contamination bags were piled high as seen above. After DZ08 shit got real, and you could see the degree of life lost.
I wish the game had a exploration mode with almost zero combat and just tons of stories to discover. And like 100x more echo’s.
