In The Division 2 one works but apparently on an update for the PS5, Xbox and Xbox Series X Series S. This is to the game on the next-gen consoles run better. Find out here what changes in detail.
That was the status so far: In the meantime, the next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 , Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have started and are already decorating one or the other living room or play den.
The Division 2 can also be played on these new platforms, but only through the backward compatibility of the new consoles. That means: at the best level of the last gen – that of the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One X.
While numerous other games such as Destiny 2 or Borderlands 3 brought out (or are still bringing out) corresponding updates for the new generation of consoles, it so far looked as if The Division 2 would stay with games via backward compatibility.
Because a little later, the developers of Massive declared in one of their “State of the Game” streams that they did not plan to adapt The Division 2 especially for the next-gen.
So what is the next-gen upgrade all about? But in the latest State of the Game on December 2, there was recently a new development. There it was announced that there will now be improvements for the next-gen consoles.
When is the next-gen update for The Division 2 coming? The upgrade will come with Title Update 12.1, which will again be released on February 2, 2021. So it will take a while before The Division 2 can also benefit more from the technical possibilities of the new console hardware (there are already significantly shorter loading times).
What exactly will change with the upgrade? But don’t expect too much here. According to the developers, only 2 things will change:
- The Division 2 will then be playable in 4K
- The Division 2 will then run at 60 FPS
There should be no further optimizations. But even that should be enough for many. The 60 FPS, in other words, a smoother experience, is one of the greatest (technical) requests on the consoles for many an agent.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing The Division 2 in better quality on the new consoles?
