Earlier this week the embargo over a hands on event for The Division was lifted and we got a ton of new information about the game. We also got a long look at the game and just how it is supposed to play but there is one piece of bad news for Xbox One players that has started circulating.
YouTuber Jackfrags recently posted a video of him playing the game at a recent Ubisoft press event. Over the course of the video, he let slip that the graphics don’t appear to be as impressive as he thought they should be. “The Xbox One version looks good, no doubt, some really nice weather effects. It’s definitely not native 1080P though and it only runs at 30FPS. There were moments in combat where there were a lot of players on screen and explosions, I could definitely feel the FPS dropping below 30 and chugging a little bit. I did try the PC version and will comment on that soon, but I’m definitely gonna be playing the game on PC when it launches,” he stated.
It seems that the trend of lower resolution games will continue on Xbox One and it seems like it’s something that won’t be fixed anytime soon. The Division is due out on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC on March 8.
