Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 runs at 4K resolution on the Xbox One X but what does it sacrifice in order to achieve this high resolution? Turns out that the game has to run at lower than even the lowest settings on PC in order to achieve this task.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has been analyzed by Digital Foundry and they have compared the PC version to the Xbox One X. While the Xbox One X version uses a dynamic resolution setup, it has been found to run at mostly 4K resolution and doesn’t drop that for the most part.
The benefit of 4K resolution comes at the cost of cutting down on the graphics as evident with the analysis shared by Digital Foundry.
The Division 2 looks great on the Xbox One X, and it is arguably the best console version, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the PC version. The game generally runs on medium settings equivalent of the PC version. The terrain settings, in particular, are lower than the low settings found on PC and this can be problematic for the game as a whole. For most of the rest, the game seems to switch between the medium and low settings on PC.
If you have the console version, either on the PS4 or Xbox One and with the enhanced consoles in mind, it is not a bad deal at all honestly. You are getting stable 30 FPS and both PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support the 4K resolution which holds up well on a 4K screen. It is just a matter of having a high-end PC which can be used to take advantage of the more bells and whistles offered by The Division 2.
