'The Division' devs talk in-game seasons, building access and 72 hours of gear

Since The Division was unveiled this past June at E3 2013, the only season we've seen the game in has been winter, and with some new information that has come to light, we may have some indication as to how weather may or may not change in The Division.

In an interview discovered by, Mathias Karlson and Axel Rydby, who are The Division's lead game designer and design director, respectively, discussed whether or not players will be seeing other seasons of New York, besides winter.

This is one game I am amped about, next to H Hour.

Wish H Hour was coming to Xbox...

They need to reboot SOCOM, Rainbow 6, and Ghost Recon and take them back to their roots. This past generation managed to ruin every one of those franchises...

I'm very interested in this game too but experience has shown that its better to temper your excitement in order to avoid likely disappointment. Even a very good game that does not live up to one's full expectations can seem disappointing.

"The immersion and fidelity of the world is very core to our philosophy, so with weather changing and day/night changing dynamically, those are going to be very big parts to the game." Rydby said."

I'm not sure if the day and night cycle is well, a simple aesthetic or if its meaningful in gameplay alteration.

Say night time comes, and only at night the cops put there valuables away. Guns, armor, Ammo etc. Vs day time when they're out and about patrolling the streets where they take all there equipment.

Wow the anticipation. I can't freakin wait for this game.

It seems that nighttime would also be beneficial for sneaking and hiding. You could employ different tactics and techniques that would not have been optimal during daytime, and vice versa.
