The Division PS4 Pro Patch Improves Graphics, Still Renders Game In 1080p

The UI however will be rendered in 4K.

Ubisoft and Ubisoft Massive have released a PS4 Pro patch for The Division, which updates their shared world shooter for Sony’s newest console. And while they haven’t shared much details about what exactly the PS4 Pro version of the game might entail, the official patch notes associated with the update on PS4 have shed some light on what the Pro update brings to the table.

Apparently, the Pro update enhances the graphical fidelity of the game, allowing for better shadows and reflections, among other things. The update also makes it so that the UI of the game will be rendered in 4K resolution; however, as for the game itself, that will continue to be rendered in 1080p. This is actually a bit of a disappointment, though maybe the rest of the graphical enhancements might make up for this for The Division players.

No HDR support for The Division has been announced yet- but given how barebones and basic the game’s PS4 Pro support is right now, I’m not surprised. Hopefully HDR is something they can look into adding into the game soon, especially since that is something that all PS4 players, and not just PS4 Pro players, can enjoy.

    “No HDR support for The Division has been announced yet- but given how *barebones and basic PS4 Pro support is right now*, I’m not surprised” = Nonsense.

    Don’t know about other peoples 4k TV’s but mine has an option of HDR+ to be used when HDR is not active. As for the comment about *Barebones and basic PS4-Pro support* at least Sony gave the game makers something to improve their games on unlike MS with Xbone/s. And until Project Scorpio gets released Sony have offered more to the gamer with 4k games / HDR / PSVR, than what MS have offered.

      lol crybaby.

    • Gamez Rule

      Really.. Unlike you I own both consoles as you well know, and I will also own the Scorpio IF it is lives up to what was announced so truth is I game on both consoles and know what each console offers me as a gamer, and yes the PS4-Pro plays better than Xbone with the same game ( destiny used as an example ) not only offers better content but plays and looks better too, so that’s far from a cry-baby, it’s more like you’re just throwing your toys out your pram as you have nothing to play with apart from yourself☺

    • kma99

      Unlike you i own both consoles but why brag about it? I don’t neef to take pictures with mine to prove anything. You keep saying the same old things but come herre with your obvious bias. Its okay if u love sony but stop trying to act all holy, people can see past your facade.

    • Gamez Rule

      Truth is fankids like you always state they own everything and never show anything, yet people like myself that own the consoles and knows what each one offers them can show and prove they do when called out ( unlike you ) so no matter what you post everyone can see you’re full of it..☺☺

    • kma99

      go back and read your first post and come back and tell us who the fanboy is lol. crybaby

    • Gamez Rule

      You’re the fankid, but don’t worry you’ll soon grow into a good little fanboy ☺☺☺

    • kma99

      sure thing crybaby. you initiated the post but I’m the fanboy. if you say it enough it might be true one day.

    • DA-ROOSTER

      The PS4 PRO is a pathetic attempt at a native 4K gaming console it can’t even increase the resolution or frame rate for Tom Clancy’s Division lol
      The Xbox Scorpio will be the true native 4K gaming console

    • Ralf

      X1 fanboys dont see any difference between 900p (X1) and 1800p (PS4 Pro). But will be see VERY HUGE difference between 1800p (PS4 Pro) and 2160p (Scorpio). Who is more pathetic??.

    • Clause

      I see the difference between 900p (PS4) and Dynamic 1080p (XB1). So sad PS4 can’t run 60fps at anything higher than 900p. Uncharted MP and now Nier. And ARK a dynamic 680-720p on PS4 while locked at 720p on XB1. Either way XB1s upscales all games to 4k…and Scorpio, oh dear.
      XB1s > PS4
      Scorpio>PS4 “pro”

      These are the facts

    • Gamez Rule

      “PS4 can’t run 60fps at anything higher than 900p” = Nonsense and you know it. And IF that was the case then Xbone would be even worse off. Those are facts☺

    • Clause

      XB1s upscales all games to 4k just like PS4 pro. Except Xbox games are 60fps and Sony games are 14-20fps. No mans lie = 14 fps. The last Guardian = 12 fps. Halo locked at 60fps upscaled 4k, Gears 4 locked at 60fps upscaled to 4k Forza 6 locked at 60fps upscaled to 4k. Cry more

    • Ralf

      “Except Xbox games are 60fps and Sony games are 14-20fps”

      You are pathetic, blind and stupid Xbox fanboy….

    • Clause

      Yes you pony morons are blind and stupid…I agree

    • Gamez Rule

      “XB1s upscales all games to 4k just like PS4 pro” = Incorrect. Please show games with a higher native resolution than 1920×1080 on Xbone s.

      “Xbox games are 60fps and Sony games are 14-20fps” = Incorrect. Both consoles have those fps in certain games but PS4 has the higher resolutions etc.

      “Halo locked at 60fps upscaled 4k, Gears 4 locked at 60fps upscaled to 4k Forza 6 locked at 60fps upscaled to 4k” =HDR support to all PS4 models unlike Xbone models. PS4-Pro also has native 4K games unlike MS consoles to date.

    • Clause

      XB1s>PS4
      Scorpio>PS4 pro

      XB1s has 4k bluray PS4 pro does not. Factor in a negligeable native resolution difference and XB1s = PS4 pro.

    • Gamez Rule

      PS4-Pro can run games in 4K and up to 60fps, with HDR enabled too (unlike any MS machine to date) as for the “XB1s has 4k bluray PS4 pro does not” that is true and correct, but the UHD-BR-Drive on XBoneS is not good at all when compared to stand-alone UHD-BR-Drives and XboneS has some problems that even made Major Nelson reply to posts saying he plans to forward drive issue to his team.

      Phil Spencer later replied to the posters via email saying the
      team is looking into it and has been made aware of the problems people are facing with the UHD-BR-Drive ( light-bleeding issue ONLY when playing 4K UHD discs with HDR enabled ) streaming is fine. ( No fix as yet )

      Then you have these problems people are facing..see video

      Here is the updated video to the one shownabove.”Microsoft confirm that the One S does not do the upscaling they advertised”..

      Bwahahaha
      Try harder chimp. PS4 pro is the joke of the industry. It is running games at worse frame rates than the PS4. What is it Nier where it runs it at 1080p ?!?
      4k machine….hilarious

    • Ralf

      X1s=1.4TF PS4=1.84TF. First: 90% multiplatform games have better resolution and/or better frame rate on PS4. Second: X1 dont have any REAL exclusives titles in 2016 and in future. These are the facts.

    • Clause

      XB1s upscales all games to 4k and PS4 doesn’t.
      XB1s has 60fps games PS4 doesn’t. More people on Xbox live buying MS games the more $ MS makes. Sony lost $188 million in OI last quarter. A walled garden headed for bankruptcy. The fact that Sony’s exclusives are streamable on PC and still makes no $ shows what a failure the psnow streaming service is.

    • Gamez Rule

      At least it does native 4k gaming unlike any MS console to date ☺

    • Clause

      Dude it’s laughable that people actually paid money for the “pro”. No VR improvements and worse frame rates than original PS4. Now they are gimping PS4 versions. Nier is 900p and PS4 version of ARK is 680-720p….less than the XB1 version. It’s hilarious.

    • Gamez Rule

      NieR: Automata Will Run at 1080p on PS4 Pro, 900p on PS4… So what is Xbone then?

      “On a regular PlayStation 4, “Ark’s” performance is more or less similar to that of the Xbox One version. On the aging hardware, the game runs between 30-45 frames per second and employs dynamic resolution ranging from 680p to 720p. In other words, the game will run in sub-HD resolution in some cases, which makes it downright ugly on any modern 1080p or4K television.

      Users with a souped-up PS4 Pro will have a much better overall experience. On the more powerful hardware, “Ark” runs at a crisp 60 frames per second at 720p resolution, or between 30-60 frames per second at 1080p should the user decide to use the “Detailed Graphics” setting in the options menu”

  • Clause

    So the patch takes it from 1080p to 1080p. Bwahahahahahaha….$400 for this hideous toaster that does nothing but causes worse performance for a negligeable resolution upscale. PSNow and the PS4 “pro”. Sony should be prosecuted for robbery.

    Xgimps struggling with the fact the Pro will get out what devs put in.

    They’ll figure that out when the Shitpio still struggles to do 4K with those 2007 textures.
