56: The Division 2

Through a monologue from ‘The Thin Red Line.’

56 is a collection of stories told by 56 screenshots, showcasing captured curations in games.

This time, Wyeth Leslie examines The Division 2 via the lens of the “Have you passed through this night?” monologue of ‘The Thin Red Line.’

This great evil, where’s it come from?

How’d it steal into the world?

What seed, what root did it grow from?

Who’s doing this?

Who’s killing us, robbing us of life and light, mocking us with the sight of what we might’ve known?

Does our ruin benefit the earth, does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine?

Is this darkness in you, too?

Have you passed through this night?
