State of the Game: March 29, 2016

Greetings Agents!


We have now been playing on Patch 1.0.2 for a week, and it’s been amazing! We’re glad to see more people daring to go Rogue but simultaneously are struck with a bit of sadness for Bullet King. May his soul rest atop a mountain of Caduceuses.

Your feedback regarding the patch, the balancing and any issues you may have encountered has been great as well, and we’re definitely listening to what you all have to say.

For a quick reminder, we’re still going strong on Twitch where you’ll find us streaming every week day. Also be sure to check in during server maintenance periods, as we have special State of the Game livestreams which go deep into what is happening with the game.


Looking Forward

Our next update will introduce Incursions, which we’re sure many of you have been waiting for! Of course, that’s not all that the update will include, and to go as deep as possible, we’ll be hosting a Special Report livestream on Twitch very soon!

SOTG - Incursions


Aside from the update that will be introducing Incursions among other things, the team is of course still looking to balance certain elements of the game as well!

Of course, to balance and adjust we’re looking for your feedback on our channels. Primarily we’re looking at our forums, so feel free to join the conversation and put forward your opinion on additional balancing as well as suggestions for new features on the Suggestions & Feedback forum


Community Love

This week, we have a special Community Love section, dedicated to the fearless Bullet King. Many of you have been making tributes, both digitally as well as in the real world, many of you have requested a memorial to the man for whom a million deaths appeared to be sufficient, and while we can’t confirm anything, the developers are aware of your request.


04AM recorded their penultimate Bullet King run. Many cheers were had!

KineticGTR made a touching tribute to the passing of our friend.

Next up, we have some screenshots paying tribute to Bullet King’s pillars of light.

Starfire013 on Reddit meanwhile took things into the real world and made this memorial. Don’t worry, the backpack was promptly removed to not cause panic.

The inscription reads: “Spires of light, Purple and Gold; Twice every minute, it never got old”

SOTG - BK3

Tyler Durden touched up one of the wallpapers to make the reference.

SOTG - BK4

And to round it off, one of our artists created this iconic image:

There’s also a Wikipedia page, but it’s under threat of being deleted! (how ironic)

Until next time,

The Division Dev Team
