It has been a while since the launch of Microsoft’s Xbox One X and since then many developers have announced Xbox One X support for their games and now Ubiosft has confirmed Xbox One X update for The Division.
During the recent State of the Game The Division livestream on Twitch, Ubisoft announced the update 1.8.1 for The Division that will bring 2 new global events along with Xbox One X support for the game. The Division update 1.8.1 will drop on April 12, 2018.
While the devs didn’t go into details but, did reveal that the game will feature 4K rendering, higher Anisotropic Filtering, improved reflections, screen-space shadows and object detail on Xbox One X. You can check out the full patch notes here.
For comparison sake, The Division runs at 1660p on the PS4 Pro through Temporal Injection and features improved shadows and reflection over the base PS4.
Also, Ubiosft has confirmed The Division 2, however, aside from the game’s existence, Ubisoft hasn’t revealed anything and has assured that the game will be revealed at E3 2018.
Speaking of the Xbox One X, Microsoft has revealed that the console will soon support Free-sync displays. Given that Xbox uses the AMD APU, it makes sense that Microsoft would allow it to support FreeSync and this would be the first time a console to support such a feature.
Freesync technology helps get rid of tearing and stuttering while gaming, enabling the display and Xbox One to work together to create a smooth and seamless gaming experience. Freesync allows for a supported TV or monitor to synchronize its refresh rate with your console.
The Division is a third-person action shooter developed by Ubisoft for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
