The Division 2, the latest game in the Tom Clancy series, will be available in early access on March 12. The download size for the Day one patch will be massive, so be prepared.

Upon release, The Division 2 will be available to download alongside title update 1. As is common with many other games upon release, this day 1 patch will address various bug fixes and provide improvements for the main game.

Whether you are on PS4, Xbox or PC, the game requires an enormous amount of space to download.

OG PS4 and Xbox users will need to make a large percentage of their hard drive available. Both the original systems only come with 500GB of storage. The premium versions, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, aren’t much better with just 1TB of storage space.

As per the Ubisoft support page, The Division 2 will need between 88GB and 92GB of hard disk space. This means that on the original PS4 nearly 20% of your hard drive will need to be free. It also means even on a PS4 Pro, close to 10% is required.

UbisoftTom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be released in full on March 15…

The download size for the Xbox and PC is somewhat better, albeit still large. Both systems require 48GB to 52GB of space.

These systems need less space to download because, while not confirmed, the PS4 allocates twice the space that is required. There are also posts suggesting that the way the Playstation compresses files is different to Xbox and PC.

Division 2 release date

Massive Entertainment’s newest game (no pun on the download size) will be available in early access on March 12. The full release comes on March 15.

Players who are downloading the game digitally, as opposed to buying the physical copy, can preload the game now to save time. However, PS4 players will need to wait until March 15, unless you have pre-ordered the Gold or Ultimate Edition.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
