I’ve been curious about this title. I did enjoy a lot of The Division as I was working out my preferred playstyle and weapon mix, and I like the cover mechanic (except for their default keybinds). I played largely solo or with a squad of my cousins, and didn’t do PVP. I didn’t enjoy endgame bulletsponge enemies or the repetitive nature of the loot grind. Most of the end of my play was spent putting together various armor sets to see which ones I liked best for my playstyle at long, medium, and close distance, and how much pressure it would allow me to apply.
I’m curious how The Division 2 changes it up, but I have been a bit weary of Ubisoft’s shooters because they are ultimately unfulfilling. Wildlands was merely OK. I was actively bored in FarCry 5 and haven’t bothered to finish it. Unexpectedly the game that grabbed my attention recently was Conan Exiles, which I’m playing on a small 10-person private PVE server with my cousins. It lacks rich encounters and memorable locations, but the ability to free-explore and build almost anywhere in the world is pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing what advanced mechanics they add…right now it is pretty basic.
