The Division 2 is $3 on Xbox right now. (Pricing error?) (Gaming)

I only played a bit during the free weekend, and found the co-op aspect surprisingly fun, with a solid focus on playing a role in a team (I ran a flanking shotgun build with sniping turret to suppress), and enemies that weren't complete bullet sponges, but who also punished you if you tried to just run and gun. I hear that your initial builds and such are just the tip of the iceberg, since there are upgrade trees saved for after you beat the game. Although the Campaign seems meaty in length, in case you don't care for the endgame grind.

Get it at the Microsoft store.

I never finished the campaign, but I did really enjoy the game. It feels really good on a basic level, which is something I can’t say about the first one. The enemy AI seems really great. SkillUp called it real time XCOM, and that seems pretty accurate based on my experience. You can’t just hunker down and kill everything from cover. You have to move around a lot, but you have to be careful when you do it because getting caught in the open will also get you killed.

If anyone gets this and wants to play, let me know. I would jump back into it for a while.

Isn't it about to go into GamePass?

Gamepass games aren’t on there permanently, though.

The Division (first one) was just removed from the service last month, after what feels like only a few months.

Sure, maybe you only want to play the game for a short while, but permanent ownership at $3 ain’t bad, especially with the next expansion just announced today.

Wait. Games rotate on and off the game pass service? Wow that makes it significantly less attractive.

Why?

Things rotate in and out of literally every subscription service.

If you like a game enough to keep it, having Game Pass gives you a discount towards purchasing it before it leaves. If you don’t care enough to buy it, it leaving the service also shouldn’t really matter.

I don’t know how you play games, but I mostly play them then don’t touch them again. Game Pass is great for trying lots of new, small games (and every Microsoft first party game).

It will give me something to do while Destiny 2 is down again for emergency maintenance.
