The Division Shows Promise on PS4, But There Are Worries

Our thoughts after five hours with the beta

Every time that we have something good to say about Tom Clancy's The Division, there's a 'but' at the end of the statement. Maybe we're just miserable gits, or perhaps we're just wary of Ubisoft's ability to con us into thinking something's really good when deep down, it's actually pretty unremarkable...

Pre-Ordering The Division on PSN No Longer Gets You Access to the PS4 Beta

FYI

A couple of days ago, some cheeky PlayStation 4 users discovered that they could gain access to the beta for Tom Clancy's The Division without spending a penny.

It's a big one

If you've been looking forward to digging into the upcoming beta for The Division on PlayStation 4, we'd advise redeeming your code as soon as you possibly can. Why? Well, mainly, it's because it doesn't care much for your spare hard drive space: all in all, the beta will set you back around 28GB. Oof. As you've probably guessed,...

You Won't Be Able to Trade Equipment with Friends in The Division at Launch

Mine, mine, mine

We remember when people were mad about the fact that you couldn't trade weapons and armour with your friends in Destiny, but really, that particular feature would have put a bullet in the game's lasting power. With that in mind, and with all of the recent comparisons between Bungie's sci-fi adventure and Tom Clancy's The Division,...

A Portion of The Division's Open World Has Been Cut from the Finished Game

Bye-bye Brooklyn

When Tom Clancy's The Division was initially revealed, we were thrown into a snowy recreation of Brooklyn - one of New York's most famous boroughs. However, according to a statement from creative director Magnus Jansen, published by Examiner, Brooklyn won't feature in the finished game - at least, not at launch. "For Tom Clancy's...

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India (PS4)

We can't think of a pun(jab)

The Assassin's Creed series – hell, Ubisoft's entire portfolio – has been getting a lot of flak lately due to the samey nature of each instalment. The expected announcement of Watch Dogs 2 seemed to excite no one, and it seems like no one really cares about the Assassin's Creed movie that's coming out this very year...
