The Division Beta left us divided
The Quit or Continue panel played The Division Beta but came away with as many concerns as reasons to be cheerful.
Join Mike and Andy as they chat about their co-op romp into The Division’s quarantined zones (we held hands and everything) and a semi-successful raid into the PvP depths of the Dark Zone.
The Division Beta left us divided podcast – QorC Ep. 50
Will The Division’s admittedly great gun-play and smooth online be deflated by repetitious, rinse-‘n’-repeat missions and do the game’s human bullet-sponge bosses jar with the real life setting?
We also have a theory that The Division Beta didn’t allow us to explore far enough? For although there were endless random encounters, there was little on show in terms of variation. Could The Division have hidden depths to its missions that the beta didn’t reveal, or will players have to be content with the variation coming from the equipment they use and the tactics they employ?
Somehow, we think it’ll be the latter, but does that even matter in a world where Destiny can attract millions of us to loot wizards from the moon in the name of fun? Hell, even we’re tempted to reach into our festering pockets to find out.
