Report: The Division Will Have "At Least 26 Missions" At Launch
Ubisoft has promised a slew of free and paid content for the future, but how big will Tom Clancy's The Division really be when it launches this week?
Well, is at least 26 missions enough?
As spotted by Forbes, it seems a Reddit data miner has managed to scare up the total number of missions we can expect out of the gate. This process took him 21 straight hours of tedious vigilance, by the way, so you better appreciate it.
Reddit user itsgamerdoc says the 26 missions he found are "pretty much all" of them; click through the link to check 'em out. Now, according to those who participated in the closed and open beta tests, a mission can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete, so if we do the math, we can assume the core game only takes about 10-12 hours to finish. Of course, this depends on lots of things, such as your play speed and style, and whether or not later missions take a lot longer to complete.
Ubisoft has confirmed several times that the game won't have microtransactions, though gamers were a little scared when they heard the title would only feature Manhattan at launch. Some consumers were expecting more of New York's boroughs to start, but we should see more - including Brooklyn - as time goes on.
It's also interesting to note the "three-thread" narrative approach, which could prove awfully engaging. But are those 26 missions enough? Will you get an appropriate amount of play time with your friends out of those missions? Or do you want more for your $60?
