Ubisoft started selling The Division 2 for $US4 last week, but there was a catch: you needed a VPN and a fake US address, because the deal was only available on the US uPlay store. Thankfully, that deal is finally available on the Australian store for even cheaper.
The official uPlay Store is selling the standard edition of The Division 2 for $4.50 dollarydoos, which is about a buck cheaper than what the deal would have cost you last week after converting from USD. Not having to mess about with a VPN is nice too, and for those complaining about uPlay - it's an Ubisoft game, so you would have ended up using uPlay regardless.
The deal was supposed to end sometime today, but it's still live at the time of writing. Even if you don't end up picking up the story expansion that drops next month, that's still a great price on a looter shooter that's a nice visual treat. Division 2 is one of the best games on PC for those that have HDR monitors, it's well optimised to boot, and the patches over the last year have helped rectify some of the more annoying problems.
The makers of The Division 2 have waited until nearly the last possible moment to give their frustrated player base a heap of potentially good news. After spending weeks failing to announce a release date for an expected small extension to the game, they’re revealing today that that mini-expansion—a free, two-mission excursion to Brooklyn’s Coney Island—is but a prelude to much more content, which is all coming out less than three weeks later.
The Division 2 is, among other things, a maths problem. Sure, it’s a cover-based shooter and a guns-and-ammo fantasy about post-disaster America. But it’s also a game about stats and figuring out how to tweak them, improve them, and ensure that your character’s numbers are better than your enemy’s. It may sound as exciting as a new function being added to a spreadsheet program, but the sweeping changes make a world of difference and improve the gameplay.
