The Division Features Challenging Content Outside of Dark Zone, End-Game Teased
Will The Division receive raids?
Tom Clancy’s The Division has heaps of attention on it these days thanks to a recent spate of gameplay impressions from various sources. While the map size seems a bit limited at this time, Ubisoft Massive has promised plenty of content to keep players interested. Though a lot of the challenging content centres on the game’s Dark Zone, creative director Magnus Jansen promised other challenging content in a recent chat with GamerTagRadio.
“There’s absolutely going to be enough content outside of the Dark Zone. You don’t have to play the Dark Zone even though of course, I think you should. There’s definitely a lot of content, a lot of challenging content and a lot of end game content that is not in the Dark Zone.”
Perhaps more interestingly is the tease of other end-game content, more specifically raids. Though Jansen didn’t confirm as much, he did reveal the desire to cater to end-game players who want the highest level of challenges. “Some people blow through the content very quickly. We’re not ready quite yet to communicate what we’re doing and what people will be sinking their teeth into once they’re done with the main game, but we know very well what needs to be done and that we need to be able to provide the fastest and most accomplished gamers with stuff to do.
“They’re going to reach the max level and then they’re going to want challenges, they’re going to want something that’s hard and something they can aspire to, something that can put their character and player skills to the test. We’re definitely going to be communicating very close to release what we’re doing, what our plans are and when they can expect to be seen. Hopefully, what we have at release is going to last people for some time and then we are ready with the updates very shortly after release.”
Tom Clancy’s The Division is out on March 8th but its closed beta begins on January 28th for Xbox One. PC and PS4 receive it on January 29th.
