Recently released The Division 2 update brought many new things to the game. The biggest of them all is the new raid called Operation Dark Hours. However, not everyone is enjoying the new experience as the new raid proved to be too difficult for many.
While the first clearing of the raid took around 5 hours to complete for PC players, console players are still struggling with it. Only a handful of console teams managed to clear it at this point, and it took them about three days. In regards to this, the developers might be adjusting the difficulty of the raid.
Upon the release of Operation Dark Hours, Ubisoft claimed that the new raid is ‘the toughest challenge in the history of the franchise’. We can’t really argue with that, but having in mind that only a minor portion of the console player base get to experience it in its entirety, screams for the fact that some tweaks are necessary.
In a post on The Division subreddit, Ubisoft Massive’s representative, Johan, told that difficulty tweaks for console gamers might be coming.
“Raid difficulty is certainly feedback that we have been looking at since the release of Dark Hours, and it is not outside the realm of possibility that tweaks will be made moving forward.”
Of course, the new raid sparked the debate about console players being bad at shooter games. But that’s a bit far fetched. While PC players have the luxury to play the game with more precise keyboard and mouse controls, console players have to make do with dual analog control.
Additionally, there’s also an aspect regarding the higher frame rates on PC, while console players have to play with a 30 FPS cap. All of this surely makes the new raid’s mechanics more unforgiving to console fans.
