Tom Clancy’s The Division is currently undergoing a closed Beta for those who have pre-ordered their copies of the game, or have access to a Beta code given by Ubisoft. The Beta is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
While we have already covered a comparison between the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game, it remains to be seen what difference exists between the PC version at Ultra and the PS4 version of the game.
Thanks to our friends at DSOGaming, we have access to some screenshots from the Beta on PC running the game at the Ultra quality preset, which is obviously demanding for a PC. We have then taken similar screenshots on PS4 to see how the console version stacks up to the PC version of the game here.
Keep in mind that Tom Clancy’s The Division has a dynamic time of day which means it is not possible to get 1:1 comparison with same time of day, so the lighting and shadow difference outside can be attributed to different time of the day. That said, there is still enough difference that can be spotted in this comparison; better self shadows, improved snow debris and weather effects, draw distance and the screens space reflections are all better on PC, but the PS4 version does hold its own very well against PC.
You can see the comparison in the screenshots below. These screenshots were taken with Chromatic Aberration turned off and Sharpness at 70% on PS4. Note: Click on each image to open it in full resolution.
Tom Clancy’s The Division will be out on the PS4, PC and Xbox One on March 8th, 2016.
