  • Guest, I'm signing an executive order to make Courier the official sarcasm font on UnionVGF.

It didn’t download for me when I was away so that’s a 45 gig DL under way right now. Not sure how much time I’ll get to play it.

Got to play about 3 hours tonight with menace-uk- and i really like the quality of life changes they have made when compared the first one. Didn't get to do everything but what I played was enough for me to pre-order.

So, what's everyone's impression so far and what platform are they going with.

Me, without playing dark zone, I love scavenging and the encounters and grouping up with others to do the campaign. I haven't played Division in a long time and really missed the gameplay of it.

I'm still deciding between Xbox and PC. There's no cross-play with this, right?
I got it on PC.
I like it but its division 1.5 and I'm cool with that.

I found another key to beta test it on PC. I'm definitely going that route. Yeah, it's more of the same, but I'm OK with that.

Just like the 1st game, this one fails to capture my interest. Played the beta for a few hours and couldn't for the life of me get into it. The game play is just not my cup of tea. I understand it's a beta, but the engine needs some serious optimizations. I see there is still CPU utilization issues that were present in the 1st Division. Frame rates are all over the place and it shouldn't be that way for a game that has mediocre graphics.

I dunno i think the visuals look pretty good especially the HDR and considering the scale.
Mind you i am playing it on a 75 inch so bad visuals i notice.
Performance is a mixed bag like the 1st as i can't play in ultra 4K and get 60fps so i tweaked a 3K res to achieve ultra/60fps.

It plays better in DX12. If they can improve DX12 support I might just give this game a chance. Hitman and Shadow of Tombraider in DX12 was a game changer performance wise. I'd like to see that level of performance enhancements in D2 (DX12).

Only played for 3 hours yesterday but overall I thought the performance was solid. On two occisions I came across a noticeable framerate drop. One was moving from one game region to another and the other I think was during some combat. There are a number of outstanding bugs on the beta so i wouldn't be overly concerned about it.

You play PC on a 75 incher? Isn't that against PC law.

I remember getting screamed at on PC centric forums when I said I played on a 42 incher.


As for Visuals, I like it. The colour palette is a lot better. The lighting seems better too.

Damn, Skill Up just tore into this game on his beta impressions video. He was on PC and included video evidence of his sessions and it was not a pretty site. I figured some bugs would persist with the same engine but to not have them fixed in this sequel at this point in development is not a good look, he even spoke of reported PC cheats already in the beta. Hopefully things turn out better when the game goes live but Massive has a well.......Massive job ahead of them.
