After playing The Division 2 beta, I quickly realized two things: the gunplay was excellent, but the skills-based PVE gameplay was not very good.

I played The Division 2 beta today, and the game seems very familiar. It was like playing a new and improved version of the first game.
I spent about an hour adjusting settings, trying to get a steady 60 frames per second (FPS). The video below is a summary of that game setup.

There will be three Dark Zones (West, East and South), plus different Rouge statuses.
