Plenty of walking room if this rumor is true.

The Division Old 1

When The Division was first revealed back during E3 2013, many were taken aback by the astonishing amount of details that the demonstration presented. However it seems that the console versions will be lacking those details. But the PC version on the other hand might be a different story. Youtube user Alobordo uploaded a minute of gameplay footage from the PC version of the game at medium graphical settings and it already looks head and shoulders above the console versions (for comparison’s sake check out the footage of the X1 version here). You can check out the video of the PC version below this post.

The PC version comes packed with a ton of graphical options and it will be interesting to see how the game runs at 4K resolution and 60fps with all settings maxed out. It seems that Ubisoft is finally getting serious about making a superior PC version, unlike some of its previous offerings.

Moving on. There has been a lot of speculation regarding The Division’s map size. One Reddit user has speculated that the map has a total area of 3.54 mi^2 and a total distance of 9.57 mi. Take these numbers with a grain of salt but the actual map layout (buried within a video by OpenWorldGames) is pretty similar to what the Redditor came up with. Check out the comparison below.

The Division is due this March for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

    • Paul

      More or less that, just a bit higher resolution and maybe a little more stable fps.

      So PC better way better than PS4 who cares, PS4 barely better than Xbox and it some how matters?

  • polysix

    Cool, but both will have their place. PS4 is just very nice to sit and play, PC if you want super gfx I guess. I can have both if the game is any good so w/e.

      The only thing I find funny is when PC is significantly better than PS4 as far as resolution and graphics people are like what ever. When PS4 is barely better than Xbox an Xbox isnt worth owning.

    • Paul

      I know, I mean if they really don’t care then stick with the last gen consoles or better yet go to the gen before that.

      It was all about the graphics before this gen consoles came out and they end up drooling over early reveals and not to mention all the wars that goes on from PS4 and Xbox One with resolution and frame rates, I mean really, it’s like a pissing contest, so then after the last two years, it’s hard to believe console gamers when it comes to graphics.

    • William Fenton

      Yea, you don’t care.

      Though funnily enough as soon as there’s a Ps4 version of a game that people claim to be superior, you suddenly care A LOT. I’ll wager on the rare occasions when the Xbox version is better– you care a GREAT DEAL.

    • Dotcum22

      Nope wrong gameplay over graphics anytime plus console gaming over pc gaming anytime for me. I only play strategy games on pc. So the choice is easily made. Opinions!

      Can you not just sit and play on the PC as well?

    • Guest

      Yes, you could but he means its easier to just pick and play the console version as you gotta go through more steps on the PC.

    • Paul

      Only on first run, once it’s set up, you can play pretty much any games like you do on consoles.

    • Zcal

      Agreed. Games these days for PC are really not bad to setup as people think it to be.

    • Paul

      With me it’s a 5 min job, that’s setting up kb/m controls and graphics which I usually try to maxed out at 60fps, if the hardware can’t handle it maxed out then I lower a setting or two that have little to no visual impact but a decent improvement on frame rates, if that isn’t enough then I won’t play the game till I upgrade my hardware, I always settle for 60fps and more or less max out the game, don’t like playing the game feeling that I’m not playing it out it’s meant to be played, if you really max games out to the max then it’s a 2 min job.

      Even for someone that’s never done it before, after a year of doing it, it becomes second nature, same with building a PC which is usually always better than buying.

    • Zcal

      I know what you mean yeah. Would never buy a PC as i’d prefer to put in the hardware that I rather have in and that i’m use to working with. Usually also takes me around the same. Always trying to hit that sweet spot. haha. I bought an xbox one though just for Forza Horizon 2. Nothing against consoles or anything but I do prefer having the option of doing what I want with the game whether it’d be higher res or higher fps. But then again I don’t really like tampering with the resolution so i’d rather set some details down that I know are resource hungry.

      On another note, i’m still running a first generation core i7 and it hasn’t failed me yet.

    • Paul

      That’s more or less it, because I’ve been gaming on the PC since the late 90’s, it’s become second nature now and over time you end up figuring out what graphic settings do what so you know which to play with the most.

      I remember years ago that I was tempted to get a PS3 for 1 game, forgot what it was called, but anyway, I remember this voice in the back of my mind saying don’t do it I’ll regret it, which if I did buy it I would of done, would of only played about 2 games on it through it’s life, not worth it, I rather just miss out on those games, no shortage of games on PC with Steam and the games I’ve got on my wish list, it’s hard work getting the time to play them lol.

      Yeah resolution is something I don’t mess with, always 1080p, but all other settings are there to be messed with, don’t get me wrong, not got a problem with consoles but it would be nice if they had a quicker upgrade cycle, 8 years of the last gen was too long and it held games back, I think 3 to 4 years is about right, more then enough improvements done on hardware in that time.

      Just wondering, I’ve got a i7 from around 2011, Sandy Bridge one, can’t remember if that was one of the first or early i7 at the time, but yeah it’s never failed me yet, planning on a big upgrade late this year with the new microns on the cpu’s and gpu’s coming out, that and DD4 memory doesn’t cost a arm and a leg anymore.

    • Zcal

      Sounds about right. I wasn’t actually all that tempted into getting any last gen consoles. All the hype for them seemed a bit too much when first release and by that time I was so stuck into PC gaming I never really felt the need. That and I didn’t like either of the remotes. Only games I was interested in playing was The Last Of Us and Gears Of War. Both exclusives to 2 different consoles so in the end I decided screw it. The only new PC exclusive I hear of that is coming out is Star Citizen. Which I also heard is the case because the developer hates consoles and doesn’t wants it to be a masterpiece. So I heard. Could be wrong.

      Yeah resolution I do not tamper with so i’ll probably do an upgrade soon as well so that 4k gaming can come into play. On my build I don’t think it’s really worth dropping all the quality settings just to hit 4k.

      By the sounds of things I don’t think this generation of consoles is gonna last long at all. Although people go on that 4k is a must have for consoles during the release but during the time of release, there wasn’t that many people that actually owned 4k capability tv’s or screens. The only thing the consoles should have been capable of was 1080p, 60fps and I would have understood that. 4k practically started reducing cost since last year. Correct me if i’m wrong. I live in Namibia and the exchange is brutal on us.

      But I do agree. Consoles shouldn’t last that long. 3-4 years minimum. 5 years max!

  • Spencer

    The shadows in the console footage looks way, way better. This is hardly “head and shoulders” above what we have seen.

    That said I fully expect ultra settings to look about as good as the original reveal

  • TraceSkipper

    Consoles is always about the gameplay. PC is how pretty everything looks.

    • Riggybro

      PC features the same gameplay.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Not what he meant. I don’t think he implied multiplats in-general.

    • Paul

      Same gameplay but better, in fact it’s better game play because of higher fps, that makes most games looks and play better.

    • TraceSkipper

      Keyboard and mouse? We dont have that. Its a console.

    • Yolanda Macklin

      I have scored 186k dollars previous year working online and I am a full time student. I am attached with an online business entity that I heard about and I have earned such great cash. It is really user friendly and I feel myself lucky to have that option. Why not try this.

    • daniel900900

      That explains why shiny QTE games with terrible gameplay are so popular on consoles. The Order 1886 was hyped to ridiculous levels simply because of the graphics.

    • Guest

      Except the The Order isn’t a QTE game with terrible gameplay. The games on the PC are. KB and mouse are garbage to play with.

    • Paul

      Not really, I find keyboard and mouse better on most games if using side buttons on the mouse and if you don’t like that, plug in a gamepad and play it like you would on consoles.

    • TraceSkipper

      The only problem with The Order was it was too short. It had it all. Good story, characters and game play. Had both stealth and open combat and an interesting array of weapons and some lose tie-ins to history. The problem here is you’re a loser b/c you didnt play this game just read about it.

  • ChatWraithShichi

    Video is down =(

  • André Siqueira

    When games like this start getting a lot different on PC to the consoles, it’s better never to see any footage on pc… or else we’ll have a hard time settling for the weak console versions….. I’m one that will not look anymore at PC footage of this game… because this one gonna sweep the floor of the consoles…lol.
    poor me…
