After the damp squib that was Watch Dogs, I have to admit I'd lost interest in Ubisoft's next big hitter.
Turns out I might have been wrong about that.
Here's a telling moment. My brother in-law, an avid regular Destiny player, searching in vain for a fireteam because every single one of his Destiny buddies were playing The Division instead.
It seems to be a miracle of good timing combined with a video game that actually lives up to the hype. People are playing and loving The Division from what I can tell, and while I'm unsure whether I can commit to another time-sink like this, I have to admit The Division has me intrigued.
I'm keen to hear what you guys and girls think. How are you finding it so far?
