Agree. Massive are up there with Rockstar in open world art and design imo.Division 1, Division 2.
Div1 has this beautiful rendering of winter in a city, from the dirty snow melting into slush, the snowstorms and conditions at night, every part of that world just comes alive to feel like a place moreso than an area in a videogame.
In Div 2 the general aesthetic isn't as strong but they exchange that for producing striking individual locations. Running around in various art installations in DC can be absolutely breathtaking. Moving through the tunnel with these glowing blocks that change color as characters (both enemy and ally) move near them is an experience.
yep, that music.. it was SO damn good. very fond memories of just exploring and being soothed by Jesper Kyd's melodies heh. still listen to some of the tracks when chilling.
