I forgot just how nice this game looks.
The last time I played it was on a standard PS4 with my old TV and I thought it looked amazing but firing it up on a Pro and 4K tv really does show just how much effort was put into the visuals of the city. Game worlds like this and Assassins Creed Origins really show just how far the ability to create believable spaces has come along even in just the last 10 years.
If next gen can continue this trend the places we'll go to should be a treat for the eyes and a joy to just be in without even playing the game.

I enjoyed wandering around the city in The Division even without playing the missions; it looked so good :) .

It seems that The Division has changed a lot since launch. Quite a few new reviews are appearing, based on playing the game now rather than when it first arrived... and the general view seems to be that it's a very cool game.

Not according to the state of the game. They have no idea when it will be out.

I just ran a few round of Lexington. They the PUG seemed to be boosting a freind, he would hide round back while "we" did the work, when I say we I mean they all seem to hang back.

I did get a Big Alehandro from a GE case, so nice.

On top of the world ma! Well, on top of a bus stop at least..

Got the bug mask yesterday too, yay for me. Was planning on doing nothing but grind GE monies but hey ho you start up the game and then hit with a server maintenance message. Well done Ubi, one before the GE and one during :slol:

You should give it a try, it's become an addiction for me with this game a lot better than I'd ever thought it would be.

Guess everyone is busy farming missions for GE monies as the DZ is so quiet, just gone round on the hunt for Div Tec and didn't spot a single player even during the multiple extracts I called in. Think I found the culprit to the CTD's I kept getting, DX12 renderer might have been causing it when on. Makes zero difference to performance or looks with it off so no loss and at least it hasn't CTD yet!

Want to play this again but I'll probably drown in having no idea what's changed in the past year.

Couldn't tell you, Xeno might be better explaining any changes as I've only been playing it since December (I think that's when I bought it) only just got into doing the HVT's after all the hours I've sunk in to it so far..



Just unlocked the Showstopper shotgun, talk about overpowered much :slol:

Upgraded gear sets called Classified. They have extra abilities if you have a 5 or full 6 peices. The also allow you to respec 2 stats on each armour peice. They also have higher base stats.

West side peirs is a new area and has a new mission type where you deal with waves of enemies called resistance.

Underground has random Hunter spawn which give nice rewards.

Gear optimisation which allows you to upgrade the stats of weapons and armour.

New Guns, guns, guns!

Showstopper is amzing. I am looking forward to doing the shotgun run with it.


Oh I forgot GE event. They drop GE points which can be redeemed for a case (i know) which can drop exotics and classified gear.

Jesus, 193 hours which beats anything I've played on Steam for total amount of time played. Actually I think either Titanfall or TF2 are the only games that comes close but still off by about 50-60 hours.



Seen that and bought a Gear S2 watch just for that face :fp: :lol:

Cheats, strawberry floating cheats. Bastards make my blood boil. Total joy though when we somehow managed to win.

Over 285 hours playtime now with no sign of slowing down :lol: Had some cracking DZ runs last night as Rogue and being a target for a manhunt a couple of times, don't think any other game has quite given me a rush like this one has at times.

Met this guy in the DZ, that being the only downer..

I like your enthusiasm for the game, Kj :) . I never played much of it but, graphically and atmosphere-wise, it was fantastic. It seems to have been expanded quite a lot since launch, too. Personally I found the gameplay to be really tough but I had fun on the couple of occasions I played alongside others. I wonder if the game will see a sequel appear?
