Since The Division 2's first Raid dropped, the community has been rather outspoken on the increased challenge encountered by console players.

PC players managed to blast through Operation Dark Hours in five hours, while their console counterparts took a whopping three days to beat the challenge.

Although more console players have now managed to complete the Raid, the difference in numbers between console and PC is rather alarming. Seven thousand players on PC have completed the task, while a paltry two hundred have achieved the same task on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Known as the Playdate, this little yellow device is trying some new things in design and game delivery.

On top of 'A' and 'B' buttons and a D-Pad, the Playdate also features a rotatable crank that folds into the device when travelling. The extent of its use will be up do the developers, with some titles using the crank throughout, while others to a limited extent. Some games coming to the Playdate won't use the crank at all.

When The Occupation works, it’s a thrilling investigative adventure that allows the player freedom to explore and chase leads in a way that feels incredibly exciting. Frustrating controls can be overlooked, but unfortunately, the bugs in the game are incredibly persistent and capable of completely turning a promising experience into one that’s too annoying to go on.

The Occupation is a first-person stealth thriller played in real-time over the course of a four-hour investigation. Meaning the game will advance to the next chapter even if you just stand around doing nothing. In it, you take control of an investigative journalist snooping around at government-tied company, the Bowman Carson group. On the face of it, you’re there to ask questions about “The Union Act”, a new controversial act being pushed through in response to a recent terrorist attack on the very same building. Before heading to the first interview, the player is sent a cryptic message from a “third party” suggestion that the terrorist they caught was framed, and there was a cover-up by someone at the facility. You need to figure out who did it.

Set on a World War II shipwreck, a crew of divers must take refuge as a storm rolls in. Though, as you might expect with a horror story, they find they may have been safer out in the storm.
