The Division 2 Easter Eggs Reference For Honor And Grow Home

Now that The Division 2 is rolling out, we've quickly discovered some Easter Eggs, and of them relates to other Ubisoft games.

At a certain point early in the game, you'll unlock an upgrade to the Theatre Settlement that helps bring joy to the apocalypse through the art of video games. To boost morale, a video game section of the Settlement becomes unlocked. And wouldn't you guess it, but the children have decided to play none other than Ubisoft's sword-fighting game For Honor.

Not only that, but in another nod to a Ubisoft game, there is a Grow Home board game clearly visible on the table. You can see images of the Easter Eggs embedded in this post.

It appears Lucasfilm is gearing up to make some announcements about Star Wars: Episode IX. The company has confirmed that a panel dedicated to the upcoming film will be held during the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago next month.

It's unknown if any of the cast will appear on the panel or if we'll finally get a trailer.

The panel will take place on Friday, April 12, and thankfully it'll be streamed live. Episode IX is the final instalment in what's called the "Skywalker Saga."

about X hours ago from

Following the Overwatch League that launched in 2017, Activision is creating another city-based professional gaming league focused around Call of Duty. ESPN has more information about the league, including how much it may cost to set up a new franchise. According to sources speaking to ESPN, Activision is charging a franchise fee of $25 million per team. That's higher than the reported $20 million fee that Activision charged for Overwatch League teams.

The report says existing Overwatch League team owners get first dibs on negotiations for Call of Duty teams in their existing home markets.

ESPN's sources said Activision Blizzard executives have recently sat down with potential buyers; none were named outright, but some are said to be established Call of Duty pro teams and those who are already invested in Overwatch League.

about X hours ago from

Battlefield V's third chapter of content, Trial by Fire, kicks off later this month, and one of the most anticipated features it'll bring to the game is Firestorm, Battlefield V's take on battle royale. Developer DICE hasn't yet announced when Firestorm will go live, but we'll get our first real look at the mode very soon.

DICE is broadcasting Firestorm's reveal trailer tomorrow, March 14. We don't yet know how long the video will be or what it will showcase, but it's scheduled to go live at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET. You'll be able to tune in right here on GameSpot and watch the trailer via the embed below.

While tomorrow's trailer will provide our first official look at Firestorm, fans got an early look at the mode recently when Firestorm's tutorial video recently leaked online. According to that video, the mode will support Solo, Duo, and Squads options, and just as in other battle royale games, each match will begin with players parachuting out of a plane, then scrambling to find weapons and other items to help them survive.

Following Apparent Borderlands 3 Teaser, Gearbox Hints At Another Game

about X hours ago from

Gearbox recently teased something that is almost certainly Borderlands 3, and now it has issued a second teaser for another game. This time the studio was less coy, outright stating that it will be showing the new game at PAX.

But while the first hint was relatively clear--the number three on a dusty road, suggesting Borderlands 3 news--this one is decidedly less so. It does state that this is "another game," so it's not just another clue for Borderlands, but other than that it's just a stark scene. In it we can see some kind of machine or robot hooked up to wires in a laboratory.

The Division 2 -- Early Review, Release Date, And Everything You Need To Know

about X hours ago from

The Division 2 is here, now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC if you've bought one of the game's special editions. An online action role-playing game, The Division 2 places an emphasis on squad-based combat, with teammates firing from cover and working together to take down groups of enemies. Which isn't to say, you can't tackle The Division 2's world alone. If you want to be a lone wolf who traverses the violent streets of Washington DC, you can.

Taking place seven months after the events of the first game, The Division 2 reworks its predecessor's loot-focused shooter gameplay. Enemies still take more bullets to go down than what's believable, but they're not the bullet sponges found in The Division. Ubisoft has also crafted The Division 2 to have a greater focus on endgame play, incorporating more than one Dark Zone, powerful late-game loot, and raids--which can be tackled with up to eight players. From what we've seen so far, The Division 2 seems to improve upon its predecessor's format in every way. So if you missed 2016's The Division, you might want to consider picking up its sequel.
