The Division 1.4 Patch Ushers in Sweeping Fixes and Tweaks

October 25, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

The 1.4 patch for The Division is available on all platforms (Xbox One, PS4, and PC) today, October 25. The new patch – tested extensively on The Division’s Public Test Server – includes numerous fixes across nearly every facet of the core Division experience, including UI, various stats (weapons and gear), loot drops, and activities like High Value Targets. 1.4 also introduces the concept of World Tiers, which allows you to select the level of enemy AI and the corresponding loot they drop. For example, Tier 2 features enemies at level 31, which means they drop 182 gear score rewards. Also of note are the specific gameplay changes featured in 1.4, which can be found below:

Gameplay Changes

• Time to kill enemy NPCs has been lowered.
• Many improvements were made to enemy AI.
• Player ammo capacity has been increased by 50% after level 30.
• When matchmaking, the game will now attempt to refill empty slots if the group privacy allows it.
• Incendiary and Explosive Rounds will no longer apply status effects like Stagger and On Fire.
• Accuracy will now be lowered for a short duration after performing a combat roll.
• Added a delay between leaving a group and signing up for matchmaking.
• Weapon magazines are now refilled when restocking from an ammo crate.
• The crafting material drops from the Base of Operations will now reward High-End quality after level 30.
• Removed scavenging from the game. Scavenging is removed as a secondary stat on all gear pieces. New gear pieces can no longer roll scavenging.
• The Map indicator for Rogue players now increases in size the closer they are to the player.
• Player grenade damage now scales with the current World Tier to ensure consistent efficiency against NPCs across World Tiers.
• Shotgunner NPCs: their damage falloff and accuracy have been slightly reduced. This should limit their range and lower their lethality in long to mid-range combat.
• Several improvements to NPC AI.
• Player health will now progressively regenerate to full when out of combat.
• Updated the ways NPCs react to Player Threat, now allowing players to more predictably manage enemy agro

Wailing Heights Brings Undead Adventure to Xbox One

October 25, 2016 By: CrashTestDummy Category: Whats Up?

Wailing Heights Screenshot

We’re excited to announce that Wailing Heights, our body-hopping musical adventure game, is coming to Xbox One!

Set in a town populated by folk-singing vegan werewolves, hipster vampire songwriters, and soul-singing zombies, you play as Francis Finklestein, one-time manager of the all-time greatest rock band that Great Britain ever produced: The Deadbeats. As our point ‘n click-inspired adventure begins, Francis is trapped in a Wailing Heights’ holding cell, charged with the crime of “not being dead yet!”

Your only hope of escape is mastering a newly acquired Possession Wheel. Find a resident’s name, an item they love, and something they hate to solve the body-hopping lyrics that will sing your soul into their body, granting access to new supernatural skills and abilities.

Our team had a great time building the comic-book inspired town, and I wanted to give you a sneak peek of our favorite places to visit in Wailing Heights.

First up is The Cremetary, a Vampire Coffee Shop. The forever-young vampire hipsters like to drink a lot of coffee, and none make a Haemolatte like the Cremetary. Singer-songwriters play most nights of the week, and if you listen carefully, you’ll hear clues in the words to their songs.

The Ruff House might seem like a rough spot from the outside, but the werefolk inside are big puppies, really. All the locals have taken up a vegan lifestyle, and many like to spend their evenings singing along to folk sessions at the Ruff House, with a broccolitini in hand. Just be sure to keep them away from the moonshine.

My personal favorite is The Soulless Saloon, the place to hear the biggest, gruesomest zombie divas perform their soulful groans. Shows are on most nights of the week, if the band can find their fingers.

Wailing Heights Screenshot

The team at Outsider Games has been working hard for years, meticulously hand-drawing the characters and places in our comic-book art style. With help from some of today’s greatest artists such as Glenn Fabry (Preacher), John McCrea (Batman), and PJ Holden (Judge Dredd), we can’t wait for you to see the whole town on Xbox One!

Watch Dogs 2 – 10 Things You Need to Know

October 24, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?


The release of Watch Dogs 2 is only a few weeks away, and last week we got our most comprehensive look at the game to date. At a special event in San Francisco, we started from the very beginning of the game and were then set loose for hours. We explored the open world, teamed up with a partner, and got hacked by rival players. We took on risky missions to expose corrupt entities, discovered new things to do, and took some serious time to see the Bay Area’s sights and figure out creative ways to cause trouble around them. Here’s a look at what we discovered, after the video:

Your First Open-World Task is to Buy Pants

After the introductory mission, your first order of business will be to cover the lower half of Marcus’ body. This nets you 2,200 Followers. Followers let you unlock cool abilities. Everything you do earns you Followers, but don’t expect the bar to ever be quite this low again.

Operations Are Story Arcs, Not Story Missions

Watch Dogs 2 takes an unusual approach to how it presents its missions. When Main Operations and Side Operations are unlocked, they’ll show up in Marcus’ phone under the DedSec app, and activating them tracks them on the world map. You may also notice that each Operation has a progress bar underneath it – that’s because each represents a set of missions that make up a larger, self-contained chapter of the story. In each Main Operation, Marcus and his DedSec crew investigate, expose, and humiliate a different entity, while also advancing the central plot a little further. In Cyber Driver, for example, we took on a series of missions to sneak into a movie studio in the Presidio, hack their servers for sensitive communications, steal a prop smart car, and remote-control it through a dramatic stunt course with police in pursuit. Each Main Operation we played took between an hour and 90 minutes to finish, so don’t expect to chew through these quickly.

New Activities Are Waiting To Be Discovered


Once you’re set loose in the Bay Area, you’ll see bits of Operation Intel scattered across the map. These might be a person to talk to or a device to hack, and interacting with them reveals new activities to pursue. For example, hacking one stranger’s phone infected Marcus’ with a benign virus, and hacking a ringing payphone revealed a spoken litany of DedSec member identities. Each of these opened up new mysteries, along with new Side Operations to pursue across the map.

NetHack Is Insanely Useful


Essentially Eagle Vision for hackers, NetHack is an alternate-vision mode that reveals a blue-gray shadow world around Marcus. Enemies are revealed as glowing red silhouettes, even through walls. Invisible data pathways are revealed, telling you where to hack or tamper if you want to, say, open an electronically locked door. Using NetHack gives you a huge leg up in surviving stealth and combat encounters, and it’s essential for solving puzzles and detecting enemy players.

Unlocking Marcus’ Abilities


Like Aiden Pearce before him, Marcus can unlock new skills and hacks through a skill tree, which is now accessed via the Research app on Marcus’ phone and divided into categories like Vehicle Hacking, Social Engineering, Marksmanship, and so on. As you accomplish Operations and other activities, DedSec gains followers, which in turn unlock Research points, which in turn open up cool new abilities like remote-controlling cars or commanding scissor lifts.

Sometimes, just having enough points to unlock a skill isn’t enough. For the coolest and most powerful abilities – which include unlocking a turbo boost for every car, or dropping bombs from your drones – you’ll need to venture out into the world to grab the relevant Key Data before you can spend the points to unlock them. While Key Data is marked on your map, retrieving it tends to involve an environmental puzzle or combat challenge, like overcoming a couple of guards or redirecting the flow of data through pathways of locks and moving circuits visible only through NetHack.

Drones Are Crucial for Puzzle-Solving


Actually, drones are invaluable for a lot of things. They can scout ahead of you if you’re facing armed opposition, and have a much easier time remaining unseen in restricted areas. But when it comes to solving Watch Dogs 2’s environmental puzzles – which might involve tracing data lines in NetHack, or simply finding the best way up to a rooftop – your aerial drone’s speed and mobility eliminate much of the guesswork, letting you quickly see the surrounding topography and zip to the source of any hidden data paths. In certain puzzles – like one we found in the foundations of the Golden Gate Bridge itself – using a drone is actually necessary, as Marcus can’t easily climb some areas.

Fast Travel Locations Are Everywhere


Watch Dogs 2’s entire open-world map is open to you more or less from the start of the game; there’s no need to unlock areas or to light up chunks of territory in order to see what’s in them. And one of the most useful things you’ll find dotted across the map are shops, landmarks, and other points of interest that Marcus can teleport to, whether you’ve already visited them or not. This cuts down considerably on travel time to remote locations, but be advised that it doesn’t work if you’re in an active mission – sometimes, it’s important to take the scenic route.

Gear Comes From Your 3D Printer


All of Marcus’ weapons and drones come from what Wrench calls “the Arnie of 3D printers,” which DedSec keeps in its headquarters. That doesn’t mean they’re necessarily free, however. Printer resin costs money, and new gear can be pretty costly after you’ve created your first drone and pistol. That’s especially true if you’re after high-end tools or exotic implements, like the WTB Stun Launcher, which fires nonlethal grenades.

The Open World Is More Fun With A Buddy


There’s a lot of variation in Watch Dogs 2’s co-op missions. Some are as straightforward as dispatching a few goons and blowing up pallets of illicit goods, while others might push you to sneak through large, guard-infested buildings and hang around long enough to download sensitive files. Tackling these with a buddy and strategizing on the fly is a lot of fun, but that’s just the start of what co-op has to offer.

Watch Dogs 2’s version of the Bay Area is a huge place, filled with side activities and opportunities for random mayhem, and having a friend to share them with adds a lot to the experience. There’s no feeling quite like dancing on top of a car that’s tearing through residential streets at turbo speeds, only to go flying when your friend hits a huge ramp somewhere in the hills. Encountering a potential buddy organically – by, say, spotting their drone hovering around an alley and following its green data trail to its source – is an interesting twist on traditional matchmaking, and the fact that you’re free to continue on your way and ignore them makes the encounter feel a little more real.


Of course, there’s a dark side to multiplayer. If you and your buddy attract enough police attention, for example, you’ll trigger a Bounty Hunter session, and other players will join the hunt for you. You might also find yourself unexpectedly hacked while you’re wandering around, and getting through a Hacking Invasion is a two-step process. First, you’ll need to stop the hack by figuring out which seeming bystander is stealing your data, after which you’ll need to neutralize them before they can escape. (You’ll still technically win if you do the former but not the latter, though.) Interestingly, when you meet up with other hackers in a friendly context, they’re members of DedSec; when they’re your enemies, however, they’re presented as members of rival hacker collective Prime Eight.

Death Is No Escape From Hacking


Even if a civilian or mission target is down, you can still steal a little money or download their files. You may have shut them down, but their phones are still on.

Watch Dogs 2 will be available November 15 on PS4 and Xbox One, and November 29 on PC. For more on the game, check out our previous coverage:

Watch Dogs 2 – 10 Ways It’s Bigger, Better, and Bolder Than the Original

How Watch Dogs 2 Improves on the Original

October 24, 2016 By: CrashTestDummy Category: Whats Up?

On November 15, Watch Dogs 2 returns to the always-connected (and extremely hackable) world introduced by Watch Dogs. The basic concept is the same – you’re set loose in a city where absolutely everything is online and lorded over by sinister tech giants – but this is a world that went through a lot of changes after Aiden Pearce rampaged through Chicago’s criminal underworld on a quest for revenge, and all of those changes are designed to make Watch Dogs 2 a more fun, flexible experience than its gritty predecessor.

The shift from Chicago to the San Francisco Bay Area comes with a brighter, more idealistic outlook, with the focus now on undermining a corrupt power structure instead of chasing a tragic vendetta. In place of Aiden, we have Marcus Holloway, a bright, upbeat hacktivist who carries a broad arsenal of custom weapons, drones, and hacks that let him approach problems in multiple ways. Where Aiden was mostly a lone wolf (and colder than a Chicago winter to the few allies he had), Marcus has a sense of humor and plays well with others – not only is his collaboration with hacker collective DedSec a key part of the story, but he can partner up and tackle missions with other players online if going solo ever feels lonely.

A more lighthearted atmosphere and hero are just the start. Watch Dogs 2 is a fundamental overhaul of the Watch Dogs experience, and with that in mind, let’s take at what else is changing.


Watch Dogs’ biggest gameplay innovation is hugely expanded this time around. Not only can Marcus hack just about every electronic thing around him, but he can also hack them in multiple ways. He can use his phone to remotely steer cars, which doubles as a fun way of creating havoc and an empowering tactic for tripping up pursuers during car chases. Meanwhile, hacking an explosive lets you detonate it at will or turn it into a proximity-triggered trap, and hacking someone’s phone – anyone’s phone – lets you distract them, steal a little power to fuel your hacks, or mark them as targets for police or gangs. And where Aiden had to maintain a line of sight with the things he hacked, Marcus can extend his reach through the camera-eyes of his two drones: a flying drone that drops stun bombs, and a wheeled RC car that can jump, slip into tiny spaces, and manipulate objects in secure areas.


Marcus’ close-quarters weapon of choice is the Thunderball, a combination of billiard ball and lanyard he keeps tied to his wrist. Not only can you use it to chain together quick knockout combos, but the lanyard doubles as a garrote for choking out guards. Watch Dogs 2 improves on the original’s gunplay as well, with Marcus able to unlock and customize a wide selection of 3D-printed weaponry, including a long-range Taser for those who prefer nonlethal shootouts. The sticky-cover system feels a little more nimble and responsive this time around, letting you dart between cover points more efficiently (and sneak more quickly, if nobody’s seen you). And if you ever feel hopelessly outnumbered, calling in police or gang “reinforcements” is as easy as hacking an enemy’s phone.


Get behind the wheel of any vehicle in Watch Dogs 2, and you’ll immediately feel the difference. The driving has been completely reworked, with highly responsive rides that hug the road and minimize skids even at high speeds. Cars turn quickly and won’t easily drift out of your control, and every vehicle features a turbo boost, just because that’s awesome. Also, unlike Aiden, Marcus can shoot while he’s driving, something that works especially well for those who prefer to drive with a first-person camera.

Flexible Missions

Whether you’re shooting, sneaking around to stay unseen, or using your drones to hack your way through from a distance, Marcus’ expanded abilities give you much more flexibility in how you approach missions in Watch Dogs 2. In fact, there’s no single, linear path from start to finish; every mission area presents multiple ways to get in, achieve your objectives, and escape in one piece. Whatever mix of tactics you want to employ from Marcus’ arsenal in pursuit of those goals is fair game.


Free-running is a bigger part of exploration and escape in Watch Dogs 2, and Marcus tackles the urban landscape with more speed and finesse than his predecessor. Not only can he vault quickly and fluidly over obstacles, but the Bay Area is riddled with opportunities for reaching high places, turning the rooftops into your playground.

Seamless Co-Op and Competitive Multiplayer Modes

Watch Dogs 2’s multiplayer modes are seamlessly integrated into the campaign, creating organic opportunities for players to take on missions together for some cooperative play, or participate in competitive offerings like the refined version of Hacking Invasion or a brand new mode called Bounty Hunter. Create enough chaos and it won’t just be the police hunting you. Other players will enter your game and try to take you down so they can raise their follower count. Want to jump into multiplayer right away? You can trigger the events manually by activating them up on Marcus’ phone, but if you’re feeling more like a lone wolf, you can turn them off entirely.


Where Aiden could wear different variations of his standard cap-and-overcoat outfit, you have a lot more options for customizing Marcus. Visiting stores and completing certain objectives can yield tons of different outfits and clothing items in a wide variety of styles, and even Marcus’ drones and weaponry can be customized with new skins, thanks to the extremely robust 3D printer DedSec keeps in its hideout.

Watch Dogs’ version of the Bay Area – which includes San Francisco as well as Oakland, Silicon Valley, and Marin County – is a huge place, filled with secrets to uncover and opportunities for creative hacking. You’ll be able to explore it for yourself starting November 15, when Watch Dogs 2 arrives on Xbox One.
