Ubisoft has been adding new features to The Division and does not seem to be stopping anytime soon. Now Ubisoft has announced that a new update will drop next week that will bring The Division DirectX 12 support.
According to Ubisoft, The Division DirectX 12 support will provide better optimization for higher resolutions. The developer further noted that there is a known issue where the players are not able to change the brightness with DirectX 12 enabled.
Furthermore, the patch that drops next week will also fix a multitude of issues with The Division.
- Fixed the issue that caused the loss of character controls
- Lowered performance impact with high CPU usage
- Fixed issues with controllers on PC
Ubisoft also announced that it will be hosting another Elite Task Force and this time around it will focus on PvP balancing for update 1.6, and it will start from January 11.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting another Elite Task Force. This time around we will be focusing on PvP balancing and the Dark Zone for Update 1.6. It will be hosted at Red Storm in North Carolina from January 11th to 13th.
Previously, DirectX 12 support for The Division appeared on public test server(PTS) for update 1.5.
DirectX 12 should offer improved framerates for those with compatible systems, but Nvidia hardware has been having a hard time with this API, as using DirecX 12 in some cases does not smoothen the frame rate but drops it. Let’s hope this changes with The Division.
The Division is a third-person action shooter developed by Ubisoft Massive for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
