Did you buy the Ultimate Edition? Because the regular version doesn't come out until tomorrow/late tonight

I got the Standard but I thought I at least get the code by now and be able to input it. I know on the store front (PSN)...Buy now and play at midnight....I just haven't seen the code for the game. Also...I assume I have to DL that mega patch...or least something...I saw mentioned the other day but the way it was written it seemed like that was for anyone who bought the disc version....but they were saying an insane 90gb Patch....good grief....

I don't think that third party DL codes can be released prior to release date. I don't think they have the pre-download option outside of the PSN and Xbox Stores.

I bought through Green Man Gaming and received my PC code right away. I believe I've got it preloaded too.

In your Amazon profile there should be a separate section for digital purchases or something like that. That's where I've had to go to get download codes before. Or just open a quick chat with support and they'll tell you where that stuff is.​​​​​​

I mean you could be proactive and check w/Amazon just to be sure it won't be a 1pm tomorrow. It'd probably take upwards of five minutes to do it. Or you can just wait. Up to you.

If the code has been issued yet, it would be listed under Your Account > Your Digital Items (Games and Software)

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

My buddy was at BB today and they swore up and down that they weren't selling the game tonight. It's in the ad they are. I guess there's sort of a caveat, if you read the fine print. They aren't staying open past 9pm (my store's closing time). You have to be inside the store before 9pm, then once they close, they will sell you the game at that time. Weird. I've never seen that before. My buddy and I are going to go down there at 8:45 pm and hopefully pick up our copies.

Is this not on Steam? I went to check it out and ended up buying Warhammer Total War 2 at more than half off. Stupid good deals.

Epic Games Store or direct from Uplay, I think. No steam .

In the Xbox versions, you download 390 MB off the disc, and then 43 GB via internet. If I wanted the digital copy of the game I would have bought that.

Par for the course these days. And if the full game is on the disc, there's a great chance you have a massive day 1 patch anyway cause why release a finished game when you can make all your customers wait a couple hours before they can actually play it.

Jesus, did they ever bother putting it on a Blu Ray or did they throw it on a CD?

Wow, this game is really good. Also, if your a lower rank then the people your playing with, you get temporarily boosted up to their level when you play with them so you're not just a sitting duck - awesome.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

Yup this is a really good game, playing co-op is a must.

also be careful when choosing your skills as itís hard to get more skill points to correct them, I use the turret but donít like the seeker air burst, you have to motion it somewhere.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I was only able to spend around 90min playing today, but so far I'm really enjoying it.

I ended up picking the pulse thing as my first ability, and I wish I'd gone with the drone or turret. I remember using pulse a lot in D1 so I figured I should get it in 2, but it's boring. And as a solo player, I feel like I should've started with something a little more dps/offense focused.

This game is hard after coming from Anthem. In that, I just soak up the damage. In this, you have to duck and cover frequently or you are toast.

Three of us played the first part last night. One is like Two Levels above. I now understand how the enemy scaling works and it was very challenging early on. We made it to Level 6 and really don't have much in gear with matching pieces and just trying to get the most Health and Armor. But we did go down a lot...but I wouldn't call it "Insane & Unplayable A lot". We had to use about everything at our disposal....but it didn't take much to get your Armor almost down in no time flat. We can see the need to equip one skill for revive and enhancing an ally in group play. Which in a way should be part of the team and strategy. We'll see later on as we progress and play as three....for now the game is pretty good...just seems they upped the aggressiveness of the enemy a few ticks.

I really have to get out of my anthem mindset with this game. I go running in and just get waxed. Can't do that.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

Ugh I'm getting the bug that doesn't allow abilities to deploy properly. Right after I activate them, they will disappear and go into a 15 second cool down. Drone, turret, throwable pulse variant - it happens to all of themt. The devs have acknowledged the issue, but it still makes me want to hold off on moving towards more difficult content.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

We're loving it but we're not too keen on the Skill Stuff...the controls, results, etc....I picked the Chem Gun and Firefly since I really didn't get a chance to play with them like Firefly. I was hoping Firefly was like the one in COD Black Ops III (Firefly Swarm) which was my favorite and worked like a charm. I hate the way this has to be deployed. I got Blinder to see how it worked and when it does it's fine but is only for like 2 seconds.

Chem Launcher is great as you just aim, see a red circle and release and it lights them up. I just got Oxidizer for it but haven't tried it yet. A friend got it and said it does great and is actually better against tougher armored enemies. But Firefly...I'm not certain right now if I want to put more into it. It feels like The Drone in terms of controls and zeroing in where it has to be just right. I had issues with The Drone in both betas as you almost had to have a clear flat area and plus you have to tag two targets clearly.

Friend I'm playing with has The Turret and Pulse. He's had no issues with The Turret but the Pulse...it marks the enemies but fades away in like 5 seconds so it's useless. We thought it was to mark and keep the enemy tagged. So both of us are probably going to have one Offensive and One Defensive skill since it's just us two playing thru...and it seems like The Hive is getting thumbs up in that area. The Hive has a huge radius...which hopefully they won't Nerf shrinking it. Curious to hear what others have experienced with the skills on the pros & cons.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

Skills are shaky at best - the drone works good but I don't understand the firefly - even after deploying it and trying to press multiple buttons, nothing happens. the seeker works good but I don't like how easily the enemy can destroy it now - it's also BS seeing as how many rockets they have (endless).

Sad to say, this game is damn near impossible when playing alone. Really thought they would ease up on that but it seems they just want you to struggle no matter what.

I do love how when free roaming the hyenas ambush you out of nowhere - makes it more realistic, no more just seeing the enemy from a distance and planning your attack (I mean that ability is still there but you have to be on your toes more in this game).

It's still a great game but they need to fix how the AI is always a crack shot and unfortunately now that I'm a level 10, the purple and yellow enemies are becoming bullet sponges.

I get it too. If you switch to a weapon quickly, you should be able to get out of the glitch.

what level are you? I was having a bitch of a time from 7-9, but now I am at 10, I am doing way better solo.

I also feel like I am getting better at cover and moving than I was early in the game.
