The Division 2: the year 1 program is consequent

We already knew that The Division 2 is made to last. After the free update The Battle for DC deployed in April, which gave access to Tidal Bassin, new sets of equipment, and WT5, Ubisoft has compiled a list of the upcoming content at his lecture at E3 that took place yesterday.

It looks like The Division 2 will keep us occupied with all the new content that is planned for the coming year. This content will be divided into three parts, or more precisely three episodes, the first of which will be available in July. Here is the program for the coming months.

The Division 2 – Year 1

Episode 1: Washington Outskirts – Expeditions

This first episode will be released in July, and it will take you through two different adventures in Washington D.C. The first is the National Zoological Park. You will have to hunt down and find Emeline Shaw, the pariah leader. Ubisoft said that the environment would be rich, with 11 different biomes. You will also come across many animals, enough to make a small safari if you are interested in wildlife.

The second adventure will take you on a short walk in the woods at Camp White Oak. This time you will be after the Black Tusk, who established their camp in this hilly area, dotted with lakes and woods. This episode will also introduce Expeditions. They are described as “free playable events, where players will have the opportunity to browse previously unexplored sites in Washington DC to discover new narratives and new gameplay opportunities.” On the program, new puzzles, new places, new items, and rewards.

Episode 2: Pentagon – The Last Wall

In this episode, you will have to defend the Pentagon, or rather what is left of it. Indeed, the Pentagon fell to the hands of the Black Tusks. The problem is that this place contains a limitless number of secrets and sensitive files. You will have to do anything needed to prevent them from coming out. The release of Episode 2 is scheduled for fall 2019.

Episode 3

We know very little about it, except that it will take us to Coney Island, New York. The release is scheduled for the beginning of the year 2020, so we will have to wait a little longer before knowing more.

In parallel with these announcements, Ubisoft announced at its conference that The Division 2 would be fully accessible for free from June 13 to 16.

What’s Your Backup System In Case Your Hard Drive Crashes?

What if your hard drive crashes? What would you do? Would you worry? If not, you probably have a backup system in place.

All you really need is a good backup system to survive a hard drive crash. Unfortunately, not everybody has a backup system. For folks who already have one, they’ve probably had to experience a hard drive crash to realize the need for a backup system.

Such is the case with Harrison Jacobs, an international correspondent who learned the hard way. He had never had a backup system. So, when his hard drive crashed, he lost a lot.

I’ve made a lot of mistakes since I left New York to travel around the world as Business Insider’s international correspondent. By far the worst was when the external hard drive with all of my photos, videos, and interviews failed.

(Via: https://www.businessinsider.com/back-up-photos-google-photos-external-hard-drive-2019-1)

Thinking that hard drives don’t fail is a mistake most people are guilty of. They rely so much on their hard drives that they take it for granted. That’s exactly what happened to Harrison.

There was one mistake I made during my first six months on the road that was not funny at all. Even now, when I think about it, I get a little sick to my stomach.

It happened innocuously enough. I was editing photos while sitting on a couch in an Airbnb when I shifted a little too much and knocked my external hard drive, a Seagate Expansion Portable Hard Drive. The drive dismounted and, rather than keep editing photos, I went off to sleep.

When I plugged it in two days later, I heard a clicking sound. After trying every online-forum solution possible, I brought it to a data specialist and got the worst news: a head crash, the worst kind of hard drive failure possible. Even if the hard drive had been semi-recoverable, it would have cost me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to recover the data.

Thanks to one bad jolt, I lost three months’ worth of photos, interviews, and videos. When I found out, I had a full-blown panic attack.

(Via: https://www.businessinsider.com/back-up-photos-google-photos-external-hard-drive-2019-1)

Who would have thought that a single jolt could damage a hard drive? Unfortunately, in Harrison’s case, it did. Since he didn’t have a backup system, his data got severely affected by the damaged hard drive. That painful experience led him to a foolproof backup system.

First, he switched to a solid-state drive.

My first step was to find a reliable and fast external hard drive that I could trust as my primary backup. The best solution these days — though not the most affordable — is a solid-state hard drive, or SSD.

The standard hard drives that most people use are hard disk drives (HDDs). Inside HDDs are spinning platters that store your data. The benefit of an HDD is that it is cheap for a high storage capacity. The downside is that, due to the moving parts on the inside, they are much more prone to failure.

(Via: https://www.businessinsider.com/back-up-photos-google-photos-external-hard-drive-2019-1)

Second, he backed up his data twice.

The Sandisk Extreme SSD became my first layer of security. All photos, video, and audio interviews are now backed up to this hard drive first.

But I

Borderlands 3 shows the skills of one of the Vault Hunters, Moze, the Gunner

The recent announcement of Borderlands 3 created a lot of expectation among the fans of the series. The reveal of the title was watched by thousands of people, but it wasn´t enough to satisfy the hunger of the fans. Instead, it left them craving for more. Luckily enough, the E3 was close, and as expected, we got to see and know more of the game during the event. This time the new information about Borderlands 3 comes in the form of a gameplay video where we can see Moze, one of the Vault Hunters that we will be able to play in the game, as she fights her way through hordes of enemies through the swamps of Eden-6.

As you can see in the video, the hectic gameplay of previous Borderlands installments continues in Borderlands 3. Moze makes use of a lot of guns with different properties and shooting modes to obliterate hordes of enemies of all kinds. But it seems that she is not alone in this adventure, because she is accompanied by a trusty mech that she can pilot for a limited time. The name of the mech is Iron Bear, and it seems to be a walking weapon platform armed with rockets and guns of all kinds that Moze can pilot when she needs more firepower or when she is in a pinch. The video also shows that Moze has several skill trees and one of those seems to be related to Iron Bear, showing that its performance can be improved in several ways that go from better firepower to faster fuel recharge by killing enemies.

Moze is not the only news about Borderlands 3 that has been revealed. Paul Sage, creative director of the game, was at the PC Gaming Show and he talked a bit about the title. He revealed that the game would include a Guardian level system as the endgame that will allow players to unlock extra skills and skins as they progress through it and gain levels.

Borderlands 3 will launch on September 13th this year on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. We expect to see more footage showing the other hunters, and more information about the game as the release date gets closer.

Epic Store manages to get Shenmue 3 as an exclusive

Shenmue fans have been eagerly waiting for the launch of the third installment of the series to continue the story of Ryo Hazuki. The adventure of the young Japanese martial artist that searches for the killer of his father has managed to get the attention of many players over the years and now it seems that we are finally getting the promised following chapter in the story. After the series creator Yu Suzuki revealed yesterday the first gameplay trailer of Shenmue 3 during the PC Gaming Show 2019, we seem to be one step closer to the launch of the next game in a saga that spans over the last 20 years.

As you can see in the video, Ryo is still in very good shape, and he shouldn´t have any problems to deal with those drunken thugs. The rest of the aspects of the game are yet to be unveiled, but we can imagine that Shenmue 3 will follow the steps of its predecessors, focusing on the story and martial arts with the appropriate visual upgrade and maybe some surprises.

You could consider as one of those surprises that Shenmue 3 will exclusively be available on Epic Games Store for PC. It seems that Epic Games managed to score another victory against Steam in their particular war securing a big launch for their video games platform. Also, it looks that they don´t plan to stop there. After revealing that other recently revealed titles like Zombie Army 4: Dead War and Chivalry 2 are also exclusive to their store, Epic Games is launching a more aggressive campaign to gain adepts for Epic Games Store. If they were previously giving away a free game every two weeks, they are going to expand it to one game per week until the end of the year.

Shenmue 3 – Ryo Hazuki

Yesterday’s reveal was also useful to confirm the launch date of Shenmue 3. The title created by Ys Net and published by Deep silver is set for a release on November 19th, 2019, but it is already available for pre-order on PC and PlayStation 4. There are no plans so far for the release of Shenmue 3 on Xbox One.
