Will give it a crack, although the review Herman posted on FB said Destiny fans would probably hate it.

To be honest I prefer it to destiny already lol.
Agreed, the third person view took a little while to get to grips with after moving over from playing destiny but other than that I can't see Destiny fans hating this.

That was his opinion, If you're used to COD/BF/SWBF/Destiny It may seem a bit slow but it is a tactical game.

Patch notes for Ubisoft’s open beta for the company’s early-March shooter The Division have some good news for those who tried the game’s recent closed beta and saw some flaws in its promising quasi-player-vs-player Dark Zone section.

The notes indicate, among other things, that the Dark Zone will have more enemies and give a little more feedback about which fellow players you should be wary of.

The highlights:


  • “Non-Player Enemies in the DarkZone have been significantly increased in number.”
  • “A new warning icon has been added to indicate an Agent who has shot another player but has not done enough damage to go Rogue.”
That should help with the main complaints we and some of you had coming out of that first beta.

To catch those of you up who haven’t played the game, the main part of The Division involves the player patrolling the streets of New York City shortly after a bio-chemical terrorist attack. The streets are fairly empty of civilians, but rioters roam the avenues of Manhattan. As you roam through, you take cover and do a lot of shooting. You can play in co-op and collect loot as you shoot, which is one of the reasons the game is drawing comparisons to Bungie’s popular shooter Destiny.

The most interesting part of The Divisionmay well be the Dark Zone. That area encompasses more treacherous blocks of virtual NYC where players who encounter each other can team up or, if they’re more devious, shoot each other. Shooting other players, rather than helping them, is called going rogue. It triggers a bounty system but also is a risky but rewarding way to grab loot from other players.

You can find out more about that in our impressions of the first beta, but what you’ll also find in various articles and comments sections about The Division are complaints that the Dark Zone was too desolate, too devoid of enemies and was too inscrutable in terms of who was friend or foe. These changes address that.

The open beta starts on February 18 for Xbox One players, a day later for those on PS4 and PC. It’ll run through February 21.

It’s always nice when a beta isn’t just marketing and leads to improvements, no?

With being an open beta I hope the dark zone doesnt get camped by male chickens just trolling.

Looking forward to playing this again thou. Gtreat news that there are more enemies in the DZ hopefully dropping some high level weapons. DZ must be played in teams makes it so much better, had some great battkes in there especially when I dropped back a bit from the team to cover them from rogue players
