Ubisoft has clearly looked at the problems suffered by its rivals and successfully identified where they’re going wrong and how to counter it. Unlike Anthem, we don’t think anyone’s going to be complaining about a lack of things to do or a disappointing endgame in The Division 2.

It’s definitely not Titanfall 3, but it is a very well-designed battle royale game and perhaps it’s for the best that they didn’t try to combine the two. At this point in time it seems impossible to imagine anything dethroning Fortnite, but that doesn’t mean Respawn’s new game can’t become a legend in its own right. [Initial Verdict]
