E3: Commented gameplay of The Division

E3: Commented gameplay of The Division

The fans of Tom Clancy's The Division were a bit disappointed by the gameplay demo shown a few days ago at the press conference, so maybe this long commented walkthrough video of the game will help with their confidence in this (formerly?) much hyped title.

Great snow setting!

But i am still wondering if you can play this game offline solo against bots and still get the good stuff like leveling up, loot, customization...etc.?

That's exactly what I was thinking about....game is great. Along with new Ghost Recon, these games will keep me entertained for a long time. :-)

In other words, i am forced to pay for ps+ to be able to play it...unless its like Destiny. Play it online with no ps+ but you wont get the full experience, thats fine by me lol

I want to see more of Ghost Recon, trailer looked great, but i wonder how open it really is and if there is any character customization, along side with weapons, is it as big as say, Far Cry games?
Fascinating to say the least.

Nah no offline proper single player mode which is why ill not bother with it, I don't want to play a game in a shared world with other people around

it looks like it will be great gameplay .. However...

Again.. another downgrade.. I will buy the game because the options seem like it will offer quite the great gameplay BUT

WHY are companies aloud to show gameplay that is not the same as the final product. DAMN IT man this has to stop... STAND UP for this lie..

once again. GREAT gameplay and will be bought but... MAN they are pulling a witcher 3 and watchdogs.

COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! errrrrrr

Graphics get downgraded if the devs thinks framerate will be an issue to the stuff they put more into the game in the future.
But since its Ubisoft ALWAYS expect a downgrade from reveal to closer to release.

What Ubi should learn is to NOT show something that is never going to happen in the first place. Watch_Dogs and Division are two examples of that. I wish more companies could do it like Bethesda. Let people wait and wait...then announce the game out of the blue with a gameplay video showing something that is not impossible for the consoles and better yet...release that same year.

Was never hyped. Very clearly showed my distaste for this game since E3 2013.
A friend's comment back then: "But Andrew look at the way the windshield broke on that car door, HOLY CRAP."
Me: "Oh yeah the way it did in The Getaway on PS2 11 years ago?" Yawn.
Looks as interesting as Destiny or Evolve was to me, nothing.

My most hyped up E3 game, For Honor, will meet the same fate.
But if you LOVE the gameplay, some downgrade visually wont happen as long as they dont screw up the original idea of the gameplay.

Downgrade as always but if gameplay will be good, I don't see any problems.
Commented on 2015-06-17 12:59:29
Downgrades are a consequence of development, as the game gets more complex and more assets and systems are thrown in, performance starts to suffer and as such they adapt. Unless a publisher is still doing it on release (such as Watch Dogs) I see no inherent "evil" in it. That's not happening with this game, they are showing the game more and not hiding the fact it's downgraded a bit.

I think this game will fulfill what Destiny originally promised / was supposed to be - a giant open world quasi-MMO action RPG with many social tools and social situations (even betrayals and the sort), a trade market, and hopefully a decent story. And it's coming to PC as well, which is great.

It's the open world environment. Something on that scale will inevitably have it's set backs, and I think anyway, is the reason why we see certain things get scaled or cut back.

I really like it, but I hope I will be able to disable that extremely cluttered HUD. Very annoying. I like clear visual. :-) From the first shows I thought the weapons sound had more impact, but still....it's amazing game and I want it. A little disappointed on that "online side", but what can we do? I will go as a lone wolf like in DayZ. :-) So pure survival and many respawns. I like how he is carrying that Vector as a sidearm. One thing is very unrealistic in this presentation.....players controlled team and NON-HOSTILE???? That's very unlikely to happen in this kind of game. We all have out experience form similar games, right? ;-) I hope we will have the opportunity to do some rescue/help missions to other players or something like that. That's my style...

Have you ever played a shared world multiplayer game before? Happens in GTAV online as much as hostiles.

Yes....le't play DayZ and show me some friendly face there. GTA isn't really a type of multiplayer I was talking about and it doen't fit Division style MP.

OK...I'm glad You have this kind of experience, guys. :-D
Commented on 2015-06-17 15:17:09
Maybe it's because, when You kill someone, You are getting nothing except some skill points or something, but in this kind of game, You are actually fighting over something. That's the main difference, I think.

Glad me not only 1 bad @ engrish.

As with everything in life...so much better without an annoying woman barking orders.

Obvious downgrade in graphics though...a set up of the internal battle between wanting surprises at these shows, and not wanting to have to wait 2 years for them when they are shown...sadly, you can rarely have one without the other. Personally i'd rather devs just show gameplay for the first time of known games that are hitting this year...denied any real shocks and surprises at E3, but also denied the misleading PR bullshit of showing something far too early before it's the actual game...in order to gather preorders,investers, and awards.
