Tom Clancy’s The Division was released today on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC, however the console players are unable to upgrade the fluidity of their experience by disabling “certain lighting aspects” to improve framerate.
Popular YouTubers Team Epiphany previously reported that all players, on any machine, could adjust the lighting setting in order to improve the framerate at a slight expense of the visual quality.
With the game’s official release though comes the proof that this is indeed not the case.
This is another shred of bad news for fans of The Division after the news broke that the servers were down right as the game launched this morning. This isn’t the best of starts for Ubisoft’s online open-world RPG shooter.
There are options to improve or refine the visual aspects of the game to your preference, including a slider to adjust sharpness as well as the ability to enable or disable chromatic aberration. Unfortunately if you prefer your experience to play smoother as opposed to look cleaner then you’re out of luck.
That’s not to say The Division framerate is particularly choppy, but it is operating at 30fps on both consoles.
There have already been numerous reports of bugs and glitches too, so we have created a guide on How To Fix Crashes, Black Screen, Connection and Related Issues to help overcome any problems you may already be facing.
A lot of players don’t seem to have much of a problem when it comes to framerate anyway, as long as it’s not disastrously low, or hinders the gameplay in any way. Others though do take it seriously and find a smaller framerate will remove their immersion from within the experience. We’d like to know how you feel about it though? Would you prefer The Division framerate to be increased over enhanced visuals or vice versa? Let us know in the comment below.
