    No, as in you only get large story advancements similar to Chapter 1 in a few select missions which are not repeats of Chapter 1 missions with additional restrictions.

    After chapter 30 there are 8 out of 20 missions that advance the story. The other 14 are just filler missions which are the repeats with restrictions. However, you can't access all 8 of those missions without first doing the repeat missions and, IIRC, certain of the side ops. Additionally for 2 of those 8 missions, there are other requirements
    related to Quiet
    that must be fulfilled or you'll never see them.

    The repeat mission is not mandatory though. You can clean up the side Ops and new real mission will pop up.

    Yeah, it's been a while so I couldn't remember all of the requirements, but this sounds correct.

    Does anyone still get infiltrations while their FOB is blockaded?
    I get attacked, my FOB gets blockaded and before it expires I still get infiltrations.

    If people are hacking it's possible. People have been doing it basically since the game was released.

    If the saves can be edited it's still possible.

    I wouldn't say PS4 and XBO are necessarily still safe. There is rampant cheating in the PS4/XBO version of Diablo 3, for example. It's one of the reasons why Blizzard has no plans to bring seasonal journeys (and the accompanying ladderboards) to console.

    Whoa that is a huge news. So people finally can decrypt and encrypt back the save file?

    It's blizzard fault, at least from the gist of it. I'm too lazy to look for the tutorial to see its the PS4 and x1 security alrrady broken or not. But the gist it is blizzard's

    Hmmm? All that says is that Blizzard can't prevent people from hacking save files on console. On PC it's all server/client with all player data stored on their servers, so it's far easier to catch and prevent hacking attempts. Hacking/cheating isn't impossible but it's very difficult and generally quickly dealt with.

    So on PC you get security from hackers ruining your game but you need to be online if you want to play. On console, you trade not having an online requirement to play for the ability for save hackers to ruin your game in multiplayer.

    @Silent_Buddha the problem is that, currently, you can't hack PS4 and Xbox 1 save file.

    I really need to read the Diablo hacking tutorial

    I have just gone back to it to finally finish it. My madness for snake had made me not finish the game ..as it is his last story.
    Looks I resumed at a good time .
    Hope the patch brings cool enhancements !

    Out of nowhere. Unexpected but really appreciated.

    1440p on Pro for this game would be a reasonable target. I don't see Konami doing 4K framebuffer using CBR solution like for The Witcher 3.
