The Division 2

The Division 2

I must admit, I was more than a little surprised when I heard that The Division 2 was getting a sequel. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I didn’t exactly fall off my chair, however, the seemingly mixed results of the first game (largely in maintaining it’s player base and the pay-to-win mechanics) made me think that if a sequel was coming, it would perhaps have waited a little longer.

Hopefully, Ubisoft can resolve the criticisms in its upcoming sequel and in a report via DSOGaming, we finally have a detailed PC requirements list for the game!

What Do We Think?

In truth, this is the first time in ages that I have been seriously surprised by a games PC requirements and not in the good way. Overlooking the 1440p and 4K settings (which in themselves are high-end specifications) even just getting this to run in 1080p at 60FPS is going to be a struggle for many PC owners.

Admittedly, these are not massively high, but they are at the very least what many would consider the slightly-upper mid-tier.

Getting back to the 4K settings though, it is curious how they have listed the Radeon VII in there. Considering we don’t actually have any firm specifications/performance figures from this card, it’s a curious indication as to its performance.

The Division 2 will release for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 on March 15th.
