The Division Dev on Possibility of Sequel

Ubisoft and developer Massive Entertainment have supported The Division well after its launch in March 2016, and speaking to IGN, Massive’s Managing Director David Polfeldt indicated the developer fully plans on continuing to so long as players remain invested in the game. But that doesn’t mean successive titles like a sequel or other offshoots are out of the question.

Though no official announcements of a “The Division 2” have been made, and Massive’s focus is squarely on The Division and the studio’s upcoming Avatar game, Polfeldt indicated the studio does want to tell stories beyond the ones created from the first game.

Life Is Strange: Before The Storm Episode 3: Hell Is Empty

The final act of Life is Strange: Before The Storm is so caught up in the interesting question of whether the truth is better than a lie if the truth only causes pain that most other things Chloe Price has been dealing with are hastily pushed out of the way. The theme is present in both the small, inconsequential choices and the path-dividing decisions presented throughout this chapter. This motif constantly challenges Chloe to question her angsty, black-and-white, no-BS views. This episode, called Hell Is Empty, asks us over and over again what justifies deceit and, if it was fine once, why not again? If dead suns can be beautiful stars, can bad people be good fathers? This constant barrage picks away at her resolve and builds into a final choice where no answer feels completely right or wrong. This constant lump of grey uncertainty in your throat brings the story to a deserving though abrupt close.

MechWarrior 5 Makes Its Mech Combat Feel Massive

Getting back into the pilot’s seat of a giant mech felt just like coming home – albeit, a dangerous and challenging to control home that I hadn’t been to in 17 years… but home nonetheless. I grew up with the MechWarrior games, and am thrilled to say that demo I played for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries makes the long wait for a sequel seem like it may be worth it.

MechWarrior 5 sits somewhere between an FPS and a flight sim, with quick action and lots of explosions, but some complex controls to make that happen. Your mech moves more like a tank than a Gundam, with a throttle instead of simple WASD controls. There’s also heat to manage, specific health and armor for each body part, and whole lot of other systems that make MechWarrior 5 an extremely engaging shooter without ever getting too overwhelming.
