After the recent uncovering of numerous Easter eggs in Tom Clancy’s The Division, Reddit user chowdapowa is in the process of decoding a possible secret message.
Tom Clancy’s The Division has barely been out for two weeks, but players everywhere have been combing through the game for every hidden secret there is. From Breaking Bad Easter eggs to a completely unexpected glitch that leads to a secret Central Park area, one must wonder how many undiscovered secrets are left in The Division. If Reddit user chowdapower9‘s discovery of a potential hidden secret is anything to go by, it looks like players will be preoccupied for a while.
Taking place during the Broadway Emporium mission, chowdapower noticed that something was up with the number of buttons that were sprinkled throughout the map. But after switching on all the buttons, nothing came of it other than a number of flashing colored lights being turned on at the level’s ground floor. While it seems like an underwhelming reward for all that effort, chowdapower remains convinced that there may be something more to the secret, given that the lights change color at consistent time intervals.
For those wanting to see this secret, and to decide for themselves if those lights hold a secret message or something else, check it out right here.
This may be the first example so far of a bigger inscrutable mystery in The Division that goes beyond simple pop-culture references, such as this one of Tim Burton’s Batman and The Dark Knight. Whether those flashing lights lead to anything remains up in the air, but hopefully the end result of this Easter egg won’t take years to find.
While Easter eggs are making the headlines, they are just a small part of what makes The Division a great game. With an enormous open world, and an addictive “looter shooter” gameplay that’s customizable based on each gamer’s playstyle, it’s of little surprise that The Division is the best-selling new IP to-date.
Given that The Division is just as much about loot as it is about Easter eggs, the recent discovery of a new “loot cave” is something players could also look into. As for those Division fans who just aren’t interested in Easter egg hunting, they can take all their loot cave findings and go hunting for bosses in the Dark Zone.
Of course, there’s always the option of giving chowdapowa9 an extra hand or two in unlocking their possible flashing lights secret, especially those who need a respite from their goal of a 99 rank in the Dark Zone.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
