Might The Division 2 finally scratch people’s loot shooter itch for 2019? I was wondering a similar thing on the weekend, so I fired up the game and kicked off a little stream to go with it.
With the Epic Games Store giving me a full-size prompt that the open beta was playable, and with not much else to do on Sunday, I figured I’d give the game a shot. My internet connection has also recently gone from “regular Aussie garbage” to something actually passable in 2019, and having spoken about doing more video and streams in a couple of comment threads here, I figured I’d fire up Twitch again.
Everything worked out quite well – minus Windows setting my Blue Yeti to ’90s telephone quality for some reason I can’t quite fathom – so it’s definitely something I’ll look at doing more in the future. The stream ran for long enough to give you an idea of what the opening missions and structure is like, as well as the introduction to the Dark Zone, and the visual quality is solid.
You’ll get the best result watching through Twitch, so the embed for that is below:
But if you’re having troubles with that, or you simply prefer your video content through YouTube, the Kotaku Australia channel there has it as well.
As mentioned, I’ll be testing this out more in the future. When things are more planned in advance, I’ll notify everyone ahead of time through the site as well. And if there’s particular games or things you’d like to see, let me know in the comments!
