Fair enough. It’s a bit unfortunate that it clashes with the early access though. And my day off.

Do you know if they usually stick to the estimated hours? I guess it might be a different matter for the first downtime for Div2.

It’s well known that they are usually on time with the maintenance schedule.

Good to know. Thanks. Itching to get started now.

Played a little more last night. Did the first story mission and unlocked the first safe house and a load of small side missions, SHD Caches and other bits n bobs. Gonna stick to small stuff for now I think. Might not get too much chance to play tonight anyway, so I'll be back on Friday.

Check out some of our stuff!

The Static/Fuzzy/Distorted effect on opening the inventory has been patched out.

It was after reports from Epilepsy sufferers that it might trigger a seizure.
But I'm more than glad that it's gone - it made my eyes go strawberry floating apeshit weird at times, like their ability to focus would go haywire for a second.

Only played a little bit so far, but I’m getting the usual menu overload. I like to know what everything does, but I’m forcing myself to get on with playing the game instead. I’ll pick it up. Probably not helped by the fact I didn’t play the first game much beyond the first 6 months, so it’s been a while.

I presume most here are on PS4?

Played this for the past 3 days (PC level 10) and it's good. Very good in fact. Sure it has it's issues - menu and U.I. is mental busy, and it's considerably harder than Division 1 (not so solo friendly - but doable) but there is so much good stuff here. Loads of content from the get go, beautiful visuals, great performance, responsive controls, a great gameplay loop and a superb soundtrack!
I've enjoyed my 10 hours with game more so that my 30 with Anthem.
I do miss that snow and Christmas theme from the original though.

I have got to level 18 so far. I am taking my time and wondering around looking looking at everything and thoroughly enjoying it.

164.5GB of free space on my PS4 and I can't download the game because I don't have enough space :fp:

Doesn't the PS4 require double the required space of a game to download and install it? I think the game is like 90+GB.
