Hello all readers! Today is the third day that we, the Beartai.com team, participated in the Taipei Taipei Show 2019, the great international show. After demo division 2, this time we were interviewed. Development team?
We, Beartai.com Invited Ubisoft Interview with you James Norris Senior Game Designer Division 2 Tom Clancy, teams from GamingDose and Thaigamewiki to take part in this interview at the same time.
Based on an interview with James, he provided many new information and long-awaited questions. He is also a fan of this game. Before he was given the opportunity to develop the Ubisoft game, he loved Division 2
"I was gone three days before the division was busy before Ubisoft came to buy my company, and I was involved in the development of Division 2. I was really excited." James Norris
For Division 2, James Norris has confirmed that new content will appear. And fix things from the first game The first thing is that the game will use the summer in Washington DC as a telling story. The whole story will take place after the first 7 months of the event where you are the Agent of the division must find a way to return the city.
And why is Washington DC ??
James said Washington DC is an important place for Americans. It has many famous places. And it should create an atmosphere for players to feel the most in America. Originally in the first game, New York was also an iconic place. The team has forced the city to adapt to see the breakdown of the outbreak in the first game.
But Washington DC in Division 2 will be more than a word of extermination. Because this game is running this summer With the wider scene People live in illegal life. Ecological collapse No longer interested in the city There are many trees. Water is all that the city thinks it will definitely give players a new experience.
He confirmed that a new enemy had been added. He began with the real sons who had previously been a JTF soldier, with an ideology that wanted to restore the human social system or ecosystem from the first episode, but they decided to take over all. Outcasts Is a person who is infected with a virus that has been transferred to the city But caused a mistake Because he is very dissatisfied
And the last party is Hyena They are people who like to steal the others. And they kill everyone, including you, they do not like it anymore. Besides entertainment, only
Of course, each side will have different combat skills and in the demo we played We've seen a new type of weapon in the True Sons faction, which is to say the most desperate scammers. Players must constantly use the battle plan to match the situation. And, of course, the player's arsenal is also improving.
And as you know, besides the Division, there are many similar games. If you show an example like Destiny or Warframe, and what division 2 is different and superior to other games
James addresses this matter
"I think our strength is Dark Zone, which distinguishes it from other games."
In this sector, the Dark Zone will be divided into two types: the first is the Dark Zone, which will bring players together by creating a level of Sync Gear Level between each other, which will help nothing else and use Skill Play purely.
The second type is the traditional Dark Zone For those who like cruelty and challenge, there is no Sync Gear. But we received no confirmation from you. James said both regimes would have the same item or not. But because DZ, Sync Gear Level, will be more Fair Play.
In the first game it happens that many players complain about the end game content that is meant for grinding. In most cases, James insists that the final game content of division 2 will improve from the first game. Of course When players climb to level 30, the game will provide an experience during the end of the game for players from day one.
As you know, in Division 2 the game has added a specialization system to create different games, and James has also come to the conclusion that there will be Raid in this sector who will have to work with other players. When performing a mission For players who play MMO, they will know that Raid is the content that each MMO should have, and it's also a hardcore content level.
"You can finish all the stories and other parts of the game in Solo."
There are many people who like playing the Solo division. In this part, James insists that players can access all of the content in the game itself, but apart from Raid it is definitely too difficult. He also said he himself likes to play Solo, so you can be convinced that in Division 2 he will be friendly to the Solo Agent.
What about new players?
James understands it well. Whether you played the first game or not You can look forward to division 2. The game will have a tutorial system that will teach players the basics before understanding the game. And, of course, the new clan system has been added to help create a new company. And it helps new players who have just played in game A of course, there is a clan reward system that has not been made available at this time.
Let's talk about DLC. Ubisoft has previously announced that Year 1 includes all the games. Allows all players free of charge It is expected that those who buy Year 1 Pass will have access to these content 2 weeks before and will have VIP Premium, the same as Rainbow Six Siege, which uses this marketing plan. And very successful
In the first game, DLC is very popular with players. This means Survival and Underground, so we asked the question: Will you be able to see these modes in Division 2?
Mr. James said he still can not confirm. But that does not mean it is not possible But what it can confirm is that in the 1st content the game will consist of 3 large expensions that will be updated to free games. But he could not talk much about it at this point and still concluded that he would support Division 2 for a long time until he was successful.
In the first division, the Loot Box is not a problem. Because it is actually a cosmetic object that does not affect any game
Mr. James insists that there will be a system in Division 2, but he can be pleased because he will have no object that could increase the character's ability to sell with real money or put in a box.
As for cosmetics, the first game is quite limited in dressing And, of course, character creation here, James remarked that he wanted the game to remain realistic. If a character can wear too much It would not be too much. Overall, the character or dressing system should be the same in the first part.
A division is a game that has two big problems: Server and Hacker. Here James gave a very interesting commentary.
Improved the structure of the new game. In the next step, the game will send all data using the Server to Client system, not the client-server, in the first game. This means that after all the events that occur within the game, the server will be calculated and sent. Player player to help detect fraud
"We know that this is a problem in the first game, we learned and tried to fix it in division 2." James Norris
In addition to servers and hackers, many complainants complain about the injustice of fighting in the Dark Zone. There are many players who are run without warriors. Here the team edited the new Dark Zone format.
The first is the synchronization system that was previously described. And so he narrowed the scene to a limit of 12 players per session and Gear in the Dark Zone. The following players have the opportunity to receive items that are not contaminated. And it does not need extraction before use
And the last story many people would most like to know The game will have Battle Royale mode to play or not. And from my personal feeling that the Battle Royale trend is going down in the downward direction.
It was also said by James "There is no plan for Battle Royale in Division 2" Playback modes, PVP, PVE, Raid and many other systems themselves should be able to provide a variety that makes players happy Or you just do not
Inspired to create James "Division 2," he said it was a very interesting story. What do you do if all the events that have become a real event? And there are still many that can not be said Because time is not enough When we talk about the motivation that has made him to create such a world
Then the Thai media set the final question: "Is there anything you want to give Thai fans?" Then James was silent for a moment. Before you say it
