  In this mission of The Division 2, you are tasked with two main objectives: Reactivate the ISAC Node in Jefferson Trade Centre, and rescue the missing agent - Espinoza, who went in ahead of you. The fact that he hasn't been returning the Division's calls is not a good sign. You're also introduced to a Hyena named Coyote in this mission and she has…

The Division 2 ditching Steam is “a long-term positive” says Ubisoft

As part of Ubisoft's latest round of mostly positive financial reports (which, unlike Activision, were not accompanied by massive layoffs) CEO Yves Guillemot shed a little light on the publisher's decision to thumb its nose at Steam and make The Division 2 exclusive to the Uplay and Epic stores. In his words, it's not just about the smaller cut Epic takes, or whatever up-front money…

The Division 2 open beta dates, release date, PC system requirements, PC preorder bonus

Ubisoft have announced The Division 2's open beta dates, which comes off the heels of the private beta that concluded recently. Though the Private Beta had its issues, they were minimal compared to other recent betas and gave us a good chance to take a look at the game before the final launch. Ubisoft have also set out to explain what features to expect on…

The Division 2 is free to try in open beta on March 1st

I missed out on the recent beta weekend for The Division 2. After hearing a lot of praise for the loot n' shooter from folks I trust, I'm glad I get another shot at it before launch - Ubisoft and Massive are opening their doors to everyone on Friday, March 1st. The free beta weekend will run until March 4th, hopefully giving the developers a…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven't been put off by the astronomical prices of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card. Below, you'll find a…

The Division 2’s Dark Zones offer a fairer chance at PvP rewards

Most of Tom Clancy's The Division 2 might be friendly and cooperative, but the lawless Dark Zones are returning in the sequel, giving players a chance to fight each other over some of the game's best loot. It's not quite as cutthroat as it used to be, thankfully, thanks to Ubisoft Massive protecting starting areas with automated turrets and player stats being normalised for a…

Podcast: What games are we looking forward to in 2019?

 New year, old friends. The boys and girls of the RPS podcast have not been reborn, they have no resolutions, no ambitious goal to learn German or eat more spinach. They just want to play more videogames. Unbelievable. So let’s listen to them chat about the shooters and RPGs that have them most excited. That’s what they do on these podcasts, you know, they…

The Division 2 and other Ubisoft games skip Steam for the Epic Games Store

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 won't be launching on Steam, but Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft's upcoming co-op shooter will launch on Epic's increasingly popular games store, as announced here. Ever since Epic unveiled their store in early December, they've been racking up independent exclusives, but signing a multi-game agreement with Ubisoft feels like a big deal. The game will still be available direct from Ubisoft…

You can solo run The Division 2 from start to finish

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is not a political game. We've heard this from Ubisoft, who insists that their title about an uprising set in Washington D.C. will avoid being political. No politics... in Washington D.C. and that's final. Sorry, I guess all of my coverage of the game needs to start with me shaking this scaldingly mild take off, like a wet dog covered…

Feature: Hands on

The Division 2 is a sunny but familiar run ‘n’ gun

It seems like more of the same. To say this of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 might make you fire your rifle into the air and shout “yeehaw” but it’s more likely to make you shrug. ‘Ubisoft sequel marginally different from previous game’ is not exactly a surprising headline, I’ll admit, but it’s all I’ve got based on the 15 minutes of footwork and firefights…

Podcast: The best and worst of E3 2018

The festival of dumb explosions known as E3 is over, but that won’t stop us. The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, goes deep into the show, picking out our favourite games, the oddest moments, and best rats (spoiler: it was the one crushed by a shelf in the Resident Evil 2 trailer). We’re also introducing two new voices this week. Who are these strange…

The best games of E3 2018, from cyberpunks to twisters

During this year’s E3, I saw the largest screen I’d ever witnessed, folded around the corner of a building like a giant piece of glowing paper. It told me to buy Nike. LA is already the neon futuretown of California, never mind Night City. But I didn’t just see ads for shoes at the LA convention centre, I saw a lot of games too. From…

Every PC game at Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference

Ubisoft's conference included everything we expected, from a closer look at Beyond Good & Evil 2, to confirmation of the leaked Assassin's Creed Odyssey, to the now traditional (and delightful) Just Dance dancy party. If you don't have time to watch the conference in its entirety however, here is a showcase of the trailers that were shown and links to the associated news from Ubisoft.

The Division 2 adds raids and drops season passes

Tom Clancy's shooty MMO-lite The Division 2 has a lot of endgame planned for those who burn through its main story, Ubisoft announced at their E3 press conference. After completing the story, you'll get to choose a prestige class with its own dedicated special weapon, as well as unlocking a new set of "specialisations". You'll probably need a few of these extra ranks under your…

Every PC game at Microsoft’s E3 2018 conference

Microsoft had a lot of games to announce at E3 2018, but it's a little murkier this year to find out what was relevant for PC users. Some games were coming to both, others only to their Xbox One consoles. You could of course watch the entire conference right here, but for some there just isn't enough time to wade through the entire show. Not…

The Division 2 fighting for Washington DC in 2019

Ubisoft today revealed The Division 2, continuing their near-future post-apocalyptic online open-world shooter-RPG series. This time, players will be fighting for survival--and to establish order--in Washington DC. Unlike the first game's snowy New York City, this seems quite a pleasant place, aside from the virus and all the gangs and factions murdering each other. Here, watch the first lump of gameplay footage in a demonstration…
