In the fiction of The Division 2, there must've been some folks who gave pause to the whole concept, right? Who, when their orange watch started beeping, reckoned they needed some time to decide whether they really wanted to become state-authorised secret soldiers? I can't say, but Ubisoft will, at least, now let you take a brief shot at The Division 2 for free -…

The Division 2 is bringing the heat to New York City later this month

See the sights, ride the rights, and extrajudicially murder a riverboat's worth of masked mercenaries. Episode 3 is sending agents off to the fair later this month, to finally see about curing…

The Division 2 brings The Last Castle crashing down in today’s story update

The Division 2's street-fashion soldiers have packed their bags, loaded their rifles, and titled their baseball caps backwards for their most dangerous mission yet.

Ubisoft’s numbers say subtitles are really jolly popular

95% of Assassin's Creed Odyssey players kept subtitles on, Ubisoft have revealed, and 50% of The Division 2 players are currently playing with them on too. These surprising statistics and more come from a wee tweetblast this week confirming that yes, subtitles are hugely desirable even in murdergames. Even as someone who often plays with subs on, I'm surprised by the numbers shared by David…

The Division 2 puts big honking miniguns in players’ hands today

Because subtlety is overrated and ammo is cheap in the post-apocalypse (so say Ubisoft), players can lug around their own rotary-barrelled bullet hose in The Division 2 now. Available immediately for Year One Pass owners or after completing a series of in-game challenges for everyone else, the Gunner is the latest Specialisation; a prestige class you pick once you hit the level cap. While defined…

Ubisoft continue to claim their games don’t have political stances, are still wrong

Ubisoft, who make RPGs about a 3000-year-long battle between freedom and order, FPSs about liberating occupied lands, and military shooters so jingoistic they cause governmental complaints, have been arguing for a long time that their games aren’t political. Yesterday, they posted an interview with Tommy Francois, vice president of editorial, in an attempt to clarify their position. It did not help.

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 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.
