Massive announced earlier today that they're delaying Title Update 3.0 from April 25th to an indeterminate point in May, giving them a little longer to tweak and tune balance on the just-launched Public Test Server.

The owls are watching in The Division 2

The Division 2 may have no central narrative to speak of, but that hasn't stopped Massive Entertainment sneaking some exciting, ARG-styled mystery tales into it. As of last week's endgame-expanding update, players have been spotting wooden owls hidden around post-invasion Roosevelt Island, each guarding a candle which can be lit. Seven owls in total, and if all seven candles are lit in the right order,…

The Division 2 temporarily disables daily and weekly Projects

Ubisoft have temporarily disabled The Division 2's 'Project' quests due to an issue which let players repeatedly claim rewards and--heaven forbid!--get more loot than intended. They tried to fix this on Sunday with an emergency server restart but that didn't work, so the Projects are disabled until a full fix is in place. I hope you're happy, you rotters. By squeezing more loot out the…

The Division 2 adds World Tier 5 and Black Tusk’s stronghold on April 5th

The Division 2 is a big game, taking most folks around thirty hours of looting and shooting before you even meet its fourth set of 'endgame' villains. Next Friday's big update on April 5th will give players even more to chew on for free, especially those who have worked their way up through the World Tiers battling Black Tusk forces. Those who have looted and…

The Division 2 has (mostly) fixed its skill cooldown bug

Our boy Brendy is still roaming the wasteland of Washington, Detective Comics before presenting to us all Wot He Thinks of The Division 2, but one thing I can tell you is: one nasty skills bug is fixed. Massive Entertainment have stamped on a number of bugs which were causing deployed skills to just plain misfire and go on cooldown. Sure, everything is busted in…

Vivendi finish selling Ubisoft shares from failed takeover

It's the end of another long day at Fags & Mags & Rab(bid)s, a wee family-owned shop and video game company on the corner of a sleepy street in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil. Michel Guillemot is down on his hands and knees, fishing under the pick 'n' mix display for loose sweets he then dusts on the lapel of his brown cotton shopcoat before…

The Division 2 open beta now locking and preloading

Ahead of The Division 2's free open beta test running this weekend, you can now preload the beta client so you'll be ready to go when it's go time. Well, you'll be ready if you can download 44.5GB by tomorrow morning. Yes, that preloading period does seem a little short for folks without mega-whizzy connections. But hey, if you want to scamper about apocalyptic Washington…

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 is free to try in open beta on March 1st

I missed out on the recent beta weekend for The Division 2.

The free beta weekend will run until March 4th, hopefully giving the developers 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…

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…

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…
