Hello, all readers! Today is the third day that we, the Beartai.com team, have participated in the great international show Taipei Taipei Show 2019. After having tested Demo The Division 2, this time it reached the # 39; interview Development team?
We, Beartai.com Invited by Ubisoft To interview you James Norris Tom Clancy's The Division 2's main game designer, with teams from the GamingDose and Thaigamewiki websites to participate simultaneously in this interview.
Based on an interview with James, he gave many new information and long awaited questions. He is also a fan of this game. Before receiving the opportunity of Ubisoft to develop the sequel to the game, he loved division 2
"It was going to come out. The 3 days to come to sit The Division hard before Ubisoft came to buy my company. And it made me participate in the development of The Division 2. I was very excited." James Norris
For The Division 2, James Norris confirmed that there will be new content. And fix things from the first game The first thing is that the game will use summer in Washington DC as a place to tell stories. All the story will take place after the first 7 months of the event, where you are a Division Agent you must find a way to go back to the city.
And why Washington DC?
James said that Washington DC is an important place for Americans. It has many famous sites. And it has to create the atmosphere so that players feel as much as possible in the United States. Originally, in the first game, New York was also an emblematic place. The team took the city to adjust to see the destruction of the outbreak in the first game.
But Washington DC in Division 2 will be more than the word annihilation. Because this time the game is running in summer With a larger scene People live in unlawful lives. Ecological collapse No longer takes over the city There are many trees. And there is water in the city. All this, the team thinks it will definitely give new players experience.
He confirmed that a new enemy was added Starting with the True Smokers who had been JTF soldiers before, with the ideals that wanted to restore the social system or human ecosystems from the first episode, but decided to take their entire place. Outcasts Is the person who is infected with the virus that was taken to the city But it caused an error Causing they were very dissatisfied
And the last match is Hyena. They are people who like to steal others. And they will kill everyone, including you, they do not care about anything. Apart from having fun, just
Of course, each side will have different fighting abilities and in the demonstration we have played We have seen a new type of weapon in the True Sons faction that must say that the most desperate cheats Players must use constantly The battle plan to adapt to the situation. And, of course, the player's arsenal is also improved.
And as you know, in addition to The Division, there are many similar games. If you give an example, such as Destiny or Warframe and what Division 2 is different and more prominent than other games
For James commenting on this matter
"I think our strength is the Dark Zone that makes it different from other games."
In this sector, we will have the dark zone divided into 2 types: the first one is the dark zone that will include joint players making the level of synchronization between them, making nobody have more advantage and you will have to use the skill pure skill
And the second type is the traditional dark zone For those who like cruelty and challenge, there is no Sync Gear. But we have not received any confirmation from you. James said that both modes will have the same item abandonment rate or not. Because, however, DZ is the Synchronization Gear Level.
In the first game, what many players complain about is the Final Game Content, which is designed to grind. In most cases, James insists that the final content of the game of division 2 will be improved from the first game. Of course When players reach level 30, the game will provide an experience during the final game for players of day 1.
As you know, in The Division 2, the game has added a system of specialization to create a variety of games, and James also concluded that in this sector there will be a Raid that will have to join other players. When you reach the mission For those who play MMO, you know that Raid is the content that every MMO should have and that it is also the level of hardcore content.
"You can finish all the stories and other parts of the game in Solo".
There are many people who like to play The Division Solo. In this part, James insists that players can access all the contents of the game for themselves, but with the exception of the Raid that is definitely too difficult. He also said this. He likes to play Solo as well, so he can be sure that in Division 2 he will be friendly to Solo Agent.
What about new players?
James understands it well. Whether you've played the first game or not You can enjoy division 2. The game will have a tutorial system that will teach the basics to the players before you understand the game. And of course, it has incorporated the new Clan system to help create a new society. And helping the new players who have just played the game And of course, there is also a system of rewards of clan that has not yet been released.
Let's talk about DLC. Ubisoft has previously announced the Yearly Content for all games. It will allow all players to be free. It is hoped that those who buy the Any 1 Pass will have access to these content 2 weeks before and will receive VIP Premium, which is the same as Rainbow Six Siege that uses this marketing plan . And very successful
In the first game, the DLC that players like a lot. That is, survival and the subway, so we have asked the question: Will there be the possibility to see these modes again in Division 2?
James said he still can not confirm. But that does not mean that it is impossible. But what you can confirm is that in the content of Year 1, the game will consist of 3 major expenses that will be updated in free games. But he could not speak much of this at this time and still came to the conclusion that he would support The Division 2 for a long time as long as he was successful.
In the first division, the Loot Box system is not a problem. Because in reality it is a cosmetic article that does not affect any move
James insists that Division 2 will also have a system, but it can be comforted because there will be no element that can increase the ability of the character to sell with real money or put them in the Loot box.
And regarding Cosmetic, the first game is quite limited in dressing and, of course, the creation of characters here, James commented that he wanted the game to continue being realistic. If the character can be used too much it would not be too much. And, in general, the system of character creation or dress must be the same in the first part.
The division is a game that has two major problems: server and hacker. Here, James gave a very interesting comment.
The structure of the new game has been improved. Then the game will send all the data using the Server-Client system, not the client to the server, in the first game. This means that tracking of all actions that occur inside the game will be calculated by Server and will be sent. To the player of the player, making it easy to detect the cheat
"We know that these are problems in the first game. We learned and tried to fix it in Division 2." James Norris
In addition to Server and Hacker, how many players complain? This is the injustice of fighting in the dark zone. There are many players that are managed without fighters. Here, the team has adjusted the new Dark Zone format.
The first is the synchronization system that has been discussed above. And the team has reduced the scene with a limit on the number of players to 12 people for 1 session and Gear in the Dark Zone. The following players have the opportunity to receive items that are not contaminated. And it is not necessary to extract it before using it
And the last story that many people want to know the more The game will have the Battle Royale mode so we can play or not. And from my personal feeling that the tendency of Battle Royale is beginning to be in a low tendency.
Mr. James also commented on this "There is no plan for Battle Royale in The Division 2" Only, playing modes, PVP, PVE, Raid and many other systems should be able to offer a variety that makes the players happy Or just not having it
Inspired to create James' The Division 2, he said it was a very interesting story. What will you do if all events are a real event? And there are still many that can not be said Because time is not enough If we talk about the motivation that made him create the world like this
Then, the Thai media set the last question: "Is there something to give to Thai fans?" Then, James shut up for a while. Before you say
"Thailand number one" James Norris
