Can Your PC Run The Division 2? System Requirements Revealed

The Division 2 releases on March 15th but the system requirements are already out so does your PC have what it takes to run The Division 2?

The Division 2: Minimum system requirements – 1080p | 30 FPS 

  • OS: Windows 7 | 8 | 10
  • CPU: AMD FX-6350 | Intel Core I5-2500K
  • RAM: 8 GM
  • GPU: AMD Radeon R9 270 | Nvidia Geforce GTX 670
  • VRAM: 2 GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 11 | 12

The Division 2: Recommended system requirements – 1080p | 60 FPS 

  • OS: Windows 7 | 8 | 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1500X | Intel Core I7-4790
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: AMD RX 480 | Nvidia Geforce GTX 970
  • VRAM: 4 GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 11 | 12

The Division 2: High system requirements – 1440p | 60 FPS 

  • OS: Windows 7 | 8 | 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 | Intel Core I7-6700K
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • GPU: AMD RX Vega 56 | Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070
  • VRAM: 8 GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 11 | 12

The Division 2: Elite system requirements – 4K | 60 FPS 

  • OS: Windows 7 | 8 | 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X | Intel Core I9-7900X
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon VII | Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 TI
  • VRAM: 11 GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 11 | 12

This is a pretty thorough list so good job to Ubisoft for this however I feel the addition of what settings preset you can achieve with this would have also helped out. We assume the Minimum is for 1080p 30fps on Low while the rest of the settings are for the High quality preset.

For 4k 60fps gameplay you will require one the top end GPUs from either AMD with their upcoming Vega VII or the RTX 2080 Ti which is in a league of its own. The game will also have support for uncapped framerates, multiscreen and widescreen displays, HDR, VRR, various resolutions and a customizable interface and HUD.

They’re really bringing in almost all the features that PC gamers want games to have to take advantage of the PC Platform and Ubisoft actually listening and delivering them is good to see, even if it is just pre-release. Once the game is out we’ll know if they actually delivered everything they’ve promised.

A big change to note is that The Division 2 won’t be available on the Steam Store but instead will be available on Uplay and the Epic Games Store.

New Far Cry Game Teased; Reveal at TGA

Ubisoft has uploaded a small teaser for Far Cry with tag “Game Awards 2018 Teaser”. This 50-second trailer has a lot to tell us so let’s get to it.

What is touted by many people to be Far Cry 6, this trailer is quite apocalyptic which makes us believe that it is a type of spin-off like Far Cry: Primal. The trailer starts off with what looks like a Nuke being dropped somewhere in America. We then see footage of crops being burned by the flames and everything being destroyed as we hear the narrator talks about “Death Coming to Their Valley”.

Then there seems to be a time skip after what seems to be the world rebuilding after the fallout. The world was dark and distraught at first, followed by plenty of rain and then came the heatwave after which the world managed to finally get stable. And in this new world, we see someone pick up a circular saw blade which was prominently shown to be from before the nuke being dropped. The person picks up the saw blade and uses is it as a projectile for a makeshift crossbow.

The person seems to have very tattered clothes with a very punk style due to the gloves, jacket and wristbands. This could be a Mad Max-esque Far Cry game where we must fight for survival against some kind of mutants or “Overlords” as most Far Cry games. Maybe we’ll go up against multiple factions in a very Fist of The North Star style fashion, taking out their leader and bringing peace and order to the troubled world while also embarking on a personal journey which is the basis of almost every Far Cry title.

We don’t have to wait too long to find out more as the game will be revealed at The Game Awards which is less than 24 hours away. The trailer did catch people by surprise and was not leaked ahead of time surprisingly.

Rainbow Six Siege Visual Changes Reverted by Ubisoft

Three weeks back all the talk was about the Rainbow Six Siege visual changes which Ubisoft was making to make the game available in China.

The community was extremely upset about this and the game was review bombed on Steam. After a lot of posts from players mainly criticizing Ubisoft for these cosmetic changes, Ubisoft has finally announced that they will be reverting all the visual changes that they made to the global version of the game.  As to why they are reverting back to the original design, here’s what they had to say in a dev blog:

“We have been following the conversation with our community closely over the past couple of weeks, alongside regular discussions with our internal Ubisoft team, and we want to ensure that the experience for all our players, especially those that have been with us from the beginning, remains as true to the original artistic intent as possible.”

While many thought that Ubi would be unfazed by the community outcry, it seems that they were actually paying attention to the community and have listened to them. Many are hoping that with this Ubi will also start paying attention to other parts of the game too that the community has been talking about, like the OP characters that need nerfs and the characters that need a Buff to be relevant. Some might even say that they waited until now to undo it so that they could boost sales for the Season Pass since they will revert the changes with the Operation Wild Bastion update.

Rainbow Six Siege Review Bombed After China Censorship

Rainbow Six Siege Review Bombed After China Censorship

China is growing as a big market for video games, however, there are various restrictions as to what games are allowed and not. CSGO has its own version specifically for China that lacks the blood and other violent symbolism.

Ubisoft is trying to expand their games to China with Rainbow Six Siege and to do this they’re altering the global version a bit, with only visual tweaks and with a separate region locked version for China with gameplay changes that meet the standards of their market. Some of the global changes include a change in the icons, removal of skulls and anything related to gambling.

Members of the R6 community are up in arms about these changes as they feel Ubisoft are cooperating with a dictator and the fact that they’re making changes to the game is offensive to them. Redditor Qwikskoupa69, said “If you are changing the game to fit a fascist countries’ [sic] standards then you might as well remove [Tom Clancy’s] name because he is rolling in his grave right now. This game resembles nothing of that what he wrote.” The Steam reviews have made the game “Mixed” and the negative reviews have been coming in ever since the announcement was made.


While many members of the community are upset about this, people who are part of the R6 Siege esports scene like pro-player Pengu and commentator Parker “Interro” Mackay backed Ubi’s decision. Interro even mocked people who were up in arms about the situation with the above tweet. While the changes for the Global Release are aesthetic, people are worried about how it’ll affect future creative decisions. They’re also criticizing Ubi for not listening to the community and not fixing various debuffed or buffed characters. Various Ubisoft reps have been replying to people on various platforms however we are yet to hear Ubisoft’s official take on the situation.

What are your thoughts about this situation? Is Ubisoft being a greedy corporation and shelling out just to get the money from a new market or do you feel they’re doing their best with the given situation? Let us know down below.

Jade Raymond Leaves EA, New Exec Takes Over EA Motive

Electronic Art’s Montreal based studio, Motive Studios’ founder Jade Raymond has left the company after helping found the studio in 2015.

For those unaware of Jade and her work, she was previously working at Ubisoft and founded the Ubisoft Toronto studio and helped build the Assassin’s Creed, Watchdogs, and Splinter Cell franchises and was the executive producer of Assassin’s Creed 2, a fan favorite of the series and Splinter Cell Blacklist. At EA, her studio was working on an unnamed upcoming Star Wars game and also helped out DICE with Star War: Battlefront 2.

No reason for her departure has been given out as of this moment. Samantha Ryan, who runs the BioWare and Maxis studios will be taking over EA Motive.

Ubisoft Talks About The Future Of Splinter Cell

Splinter Cell was one of the most fun stealth games to play back in the day. With the variety in gadgets, the engaging story and detailed environments, Splinter Cell games were an absolute joy to play through and still are. Sadly, the last installment released in 2013 and we’re still waiting for a new one.

Earlier this year, Ghost Recon: Wildlands had a crossover event that teased Sam Fisher and that got fans of the series super excited. We haven’t heard much about the franchise since then but in a recent interview with Game Informer, Ubisoft Chief Creative Officer Serge Hascoet said “I love Splinter Cell, I love Prince of Persia. I can’t disclose any information at this time, but I can say we are fighting for resources. It’s not a question of will, it’s a question of means.” That sounds like they’re struggling to get those games greenlit and games like Assassin’s Creed, The Division and Far Cry seem to be getting the limelight.

However, it could also be that the games Ubisoft is currently focusing on include microtransaction in some way or another which rakes in that extra revenue and they might be looking for ways to implement it in Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell without hampering the game’s experience. Fans have expressed their desire for those games so it’s not like those franchises are dead so why Ubisoft hasn’t decided to revive two of their most popular franchises is yet to be seen.

Does Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Push Microtransactions?

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has been out for a couple of days now and there’s been a lot of mixed reviews. Some quite positive, some negative. And some have been trashing the microtransaction part of the game so let’s talk about that for a bit.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has Helix Credits, which can be used to buy skins, weapons and “Time Savers”. Many people have called the game grindy and are angry at Ubisoft for making the game grindy so that people invest in the Time Savers which boost the amount of XP you receive and reduce time requirements for certain things. It basically speeds up your character progress. Now I feel this is for the people who enjoy Assassin’s Creed games but don’t have the time to explore everything and to level up by playing through the side missions, contracts, and the various other side objectives. With a game as long as this, it is a good way for people who can’t make the time for it but still enjoy playing it to experience the story and the most of the game. While I can see why people can attribute its addition to the fact that the game feels grindy, I don’t think it is the worst offender.

Let’s talk about the part that is actually bullshit and is straight up an attempt at cash grab. Heka Chests. Legendary items cost 80 Orichalcalchum( Weapons cost 100). Orichalcum can be found in-game but in very small quantity, about 1 per rock. You get 10 Oricalchum through weekly quests which means 5 weeks of farming. Unless you pay for it of course.  So if you want to get the 2 premium sets that are currently in the game which contain armor and weapons, you will need to farm for a minimum of 10 weeks. That is absolute bullshit in my opinion and needs to be changed to a system similar to the one in Origins.

Ubisoft needs to fix this because besides this and the somewhat poor PC performance, the game has been praised by almost every major media outlet and reviewer and even fans of the series are quite happy with the game and are enjoying playing through it. Let us know what you feel about the microtransaction that is in the game and how it has affected your experience with the game.

Google Project Stream

Streaming as a service looks more viable as the days go by as people are getting access to better internet, and with the slow rise in the price of PC parts. Sony was already doing this and now it looks like Google wants in too with Project Stream.

Project Stream is Google’s game streaming service that will allow users to play games through the Chrome browser on their PC or Laptop. Google has teamed up with Ubisoft and is streaming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to the select test users that they’ve chosen. Google has stated in the past they want to address issues like graphical degradation, latency and buffering, three of the biggest problems when streaming games, especially AAA titles.

Project Stream is currently only available to a select few people who have signed up for it and the requirements for it state that you need to live in the US, be over 17 and have an internet connection of at least 25mbps to play the games. At the moment it only seems to stream at a max resolution of 1080p at 60fps. Game streaming as a service could be a reality soon with companies and Sony shifting their focus towards it but it replacing gaming on your own PC or Console will be hard. Though, this does give people a new way to play games if they can’t have a powerful PC for some reason on the other but can afford good internet. We also hope to see Project Stream expand to more regions, especially India.
