Ubisoft Massive takes us back into the world of The Division to delve into the aftermath of the Black Friday virus for the sequel, but how does it measure up?
The Division 2 launched last week, and drops players into Washington D.C. seven months after the outbreak in New York. A lot of the gameplay and mechanics will feel familiar, but there are some new elements to spice things up for returning players, including the overhauled Dark Zone.
There’s a clan system this time around, and for the first time ever, we’ll see raids in the game. Dark Hours is the first, although it doesn’t have a release date, and hasn’t been officially announced just yet.
Once you slog your way to level 30, you can really get things going by picking your end-game Specialization; you can opt for Demolitionist, Survivalist, or Sharpshooter.
If you didn’t pick up the game last week, or you just want to know what your favourite outlet has to say about it, then cast your eye over the reviews below. But if you’re after some quintessential Kirk, you can check out his review of The Division 2, which he describes as “a game with nothing to say but plenty of tactical bumbags,” because of course he did.
