    Can hardly wait, this is one of my favorite games. Love the combat and graphics. I heard they were working on a movie. Hopefully that will be good also.

    Can the story missions be soloed? 

    Reading online some say yes and some say no.  The game looks like fun but since my friends have all stopped gaming and puging is worse than being set on fire .  I would like to solo ;D.

    So far I've only done solo stuff. Completed the story mission on two characters and nearly done on a third.

    The game is more immersive when played as solo. Of course playing in a group has its benefits especially on the highest difficulty levels during end-game but playing solo is very enjoyable too. Don't worry about that.

    I'm assuming the game still has that bullet sponge feel to it? Such a simple, yet frustrating feature that seems to put it odds with the "Tom Clancy's" stamp associated with the game.

    Yes, so far everything can be soloed except for (some/all?) incursions. 

    Just curious, @Octagon7711, why roll alts in this game?

    I've got the game and it looks fantastic but haven't got around to really getting stuck into it yet. Keep meaning to but DOS:II has me by the balls and won't let go :(

    Some of the dungeons are really tough to solo. So there will be instances where even a PuG is better than nothing.

    Hm, you think the game has become better I have been thinking about installing it again myself given I've just updated to a 8TB Drive Array and have it uninstalled currently?

    I like the whole story behind it, but the character models, and graphics needed improvement last time I played has there been any major updates to the game?

    And hows the player population last time I tried the game like last year it was very low.

    I wanted to see how they played and try different load outs on them, but did end up playing just the one mostly as I usually settle on the same gear.  I also liked the story a lot.

    Player population has been ok. It's never empty. A bit less crowed at times.

    You know this is for the new update to the Division and not Destiny 2.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    How is it different and similar to D2? Are they similar at all? I figure Division doesn't have the fast Quake-style mobility. Is it pvp or can I just do open world pve with the occasional strike, like Destiny?

    The Division is an awesome game... graphics are absolute top shelf. Only problem I have is there's just too much garbage loot filling up your inventory all the time.

    Both games are looter shooters so they share a lot regarding progression and gear grind. The Division is more believable since it plays in an alternative version of New York. It has a really good and immersive atmosphere especially when you play it during the winter. The open world PvE map and all the PvE encounters are instanced and scaled to a solo player or a single party of players and the PvE content has selectable levels of difficulty once you reach end game. You can play it completely solo if you want to. There are safe houses that function as player hubs though. I think the world and the story itself is much deeper and bigger than D2 and the leveling part provides a lot of game time espacially for your first playthrough. Besides the PvE content The Division has a survival (PvE or PvP selectable) mode similar to other survival games where you have to race with other players for loot and an ultimate objective. The game has a huge separated open world PvP+PvE map called the Dark Zone and it also has smaller scale objective based and skirmish PvP modes too. Despite the fact that the players and NPC's have a selection of super human abilities the weapons and gear pieces are modeled after their real world counterparts. The Division is a great looter shooter for those who like minmaxing various builds since it has a lot of options for stat rerolls, gear optimization, gear modding and customization with a fairly good variety of gear and weapon options. It is also a great game for players who play games just for the story and the immersive plot. Of course the game has its flaws but I think it's the best looter shooter made for the PC so far.

    One big difference between the two games is that The Division gives you better weapons and gear management.  D2 forces weapons on you because the best stats usually belongs to the gear and weapons you don't like as much, so you may use weapons and gear not because you prefer that type of weapon but because it has the best stats.  With TD it's pretty easy to put together an effective build using weapons you really like.

    I enjoyed both stories and the PvE is good in both.
