The Division 2 might be just around the corner, but Massive Entertainment’s latest state of the game address has given fans some insight into the bigger changes since the franchise’s first installment. 

A Twitch broadcast, which went live on March 6 from The Division’s official channel, featured both the project’s senior community developer Hamish Bode and Massive’s senior game designer Trick Dempsey. 

The pair discussed how the game has been freshened up this time around, ahead of its March 15 release, with some exciting new information on the game’s campaign, levels and details about how tiers will differ from others.

Strongholds

Strongholds are much larger than missions and will be significantly more important, in terms of the development of The Division 2’s plot. However, in order to play Strongholds you will have to complete missions first. 

Players will be introduced to this concept quite quickly, the pair revealed, as it will feature fairly early in the game’s main campaign. As you move closer to the endgame, though, Strongholds will become some of the most important parts of gameplay.

What to expect from the Campaign Mode

The main campaign will have a number of different tiers, which will decide how difficult the gameplay will be for you – as expected. 

This will allow players to work their way through a number of missions and Strongholds until they reach a point where they can move on to the next tier.

Tiers explained

Dempsey and Bode discussed how the tiers, which range from 1-5, will have a variety of different content in each. 

Three Strongholds have been revealed for World Tiers 1-3, which will include two invaded missions as well. Once the first Stronghold is out of the way, that will grant you access to the next tier – so on and so forth. 

52 bosses will be named throughout the campaign as well, all of which you will come up against throughout the story, and players will be rewarded with bonus loot for obtaining cards from them. 

After the first three Strongholds have been completed, players will move onto Tier 4, which is being left as a surprise for the game’s release. This includes a ‘priority target network,’ which will set bounties for hard, challenging and heroic progression. 

Specifically related to the new story, fans were told to expect to meet ‘Otis Sykes’ during their time, granting access to bounties. From there, a final Stronghold will be unlocked – called ‘Tidal Basin’ – and the completion of that will take you closer to the endgame. 

So, there you have it. Those are all of the details from the March 6 state of the game address and we will continue to keep you updated on any more details on the game as the release date quickly approaches.

Son Heung-min builds his dream “Ultimate player” in FIFA 21

Tottenham star Son Heung-Min sat down with Irish footballer David Meyer to build the ultimate Hotspur card for FUT 21, and it would be an absolute titan were it real.

Son is generally considered one of the best wingers playing today, and was named EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month for the third time in October 2020.

Along with Meyer, the South Korean concocted an Ultimate Teammate, a monster of a card combining the best stats from Tottenham players including himself, albeit a bit reluctantly.

Each of the six stats that make up a FIFA player card — Pace, Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, Defense, and Physical — were included, and the end result is a Frankenstein’s Monster of skill that you would never want to go up against (though, we’d take him on our squad).

So, let’s take a look at what Son managed to cook up, starting with Pace, and running on through the list:

Pace — Lucas Moura

EA Sports
Lucas is certainly speedy, so we can’t fault Son here.

For any fan of the Spurs, the choice of Lucas Moura for best Pace will come as no surprise, boasting a highly decent 92 on his regular gold card.

“Lucas is definitely faster than me,” Son laughed, when prodded by Meyer that he might actually have the edge in speed. EA apparently agrees, only giving the Winger an 88 Pace for his standard card.

Shooting — Harry Kane

Who else but Harry Kane? That 92 shooting will fit in quite nicely.

For shooting, the choice was none other than Harry Kane, who comes in with 92 in that category, one of the highest on Tottenham.

Again, Son was reluctant to name himself. Possibly because he’s a crack FIFA expert and was aware Kane has six more points in shooting than his 86, that, or he’s just doesn’t want to leave anyone out.

Dribbling — Lucas Moura

Despite considering Steven Bergwijn and himself (again) for best dribbling on Tottenham, Son once again went with the reliable pick of Moura.

While Bergwijn is only an 85 DRB, it could have really gone either way between the final two contestants, but an unwillingness to give himself much credit led to Lucas getting picked once again.

Passing — Giovani Lo Celso

Argentine Giovani Lo Celso was Son’s pick for Tottenham’s best passer.

For Passing, Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso got the nod, but only comes in with an 82 for his standard card in the stat. Still, we have to remember this was only Tottenham players that were able to be picked.

That, and Son has hooked with Son quite a few times for memorable goals over their careers, which could have been another factor in the pick.

Defending —Toby Alderweireld

Belgian back Toby Alderweireld’s 85 DEF got him a spot on the Ultimate card.

After joking that the upgrade to make his DEF 45 for his latest POTM card might be enough to finally make him choose himself, Son made a more reasonable choice and went with Alderweireld.

87 Defence is definitely nothing to scoff at, and put together with our sixth and final stat, it helps to make this “Ultimate Card” absolutely freakish.

Physical — Moussa Sissoko

Looking at the stats, it’s easy to see why Sissoko got the pick here.

Finally, rounding things out at Physical is Moussa Sissoko who comes in with an 89 — his best stat by far. This was one area where Son probably wouldn’t be considered either, on top of Defense.

Altogether, we get a 99 OVR card boasting 92 Pace, 91 Shooting, 82 Passing, 87 Dribbling, 87 Defense, and 89 Physical. Just imagine for a moment the price tag that would come along with the SBC for this bad boy.

EA Sports
An absolute monstrosity, in more ways than one.

Luckily, Son’s Ultimate Teammate card will most likely never make it into FIFA 21 itself, as it would be massively overpowered — if you haven’t picked up on that already.
