The Division appears to be one of the games which offers console players the most amount of options to tweak their visual and gameplay experience that they have seen so far; and yet, sadly, it appears as though one specific kind of visual setting, which was widely expected to be in the game, is not in the console versions after all.
VideoGamer reports that contrary to earlier reports, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of The Division lack any kind of lighting settings, that players may have been able to tweak to adjust the game’s performance to their liking. This is especially a shame, because a Ubisoft developer went on the record in an interview with a YouTuber recently, claiming that console players would be able to get higher framerate by tweaking lighting settings.
“It’s actually great that we give the option to disable certain lighting aspects to improve framerates in the console versions, which I don’t know of another game that does that off the top of my head. So if you want to choose framerate over visuals, you can if you want.”
So… yeah, that’s definitely out.
Still, hey, The Division seems to run rather well on consoles in the end, so maybe you don’t actually need the setting?
