Updated February 6, 2019: Digital Foundry said that The Division 2 runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X.

One of Ubisoft's most-anticipated new titles is The Division 2, the sequel to the popular first game that launched back in 2016. The Division 2 is a third-person military shooter which tasks you with stopping malicious forces from seizing control of the government in the District of Columbia. It's unclear how the rest of the country is affected at this point, but we should find out soon enough because the game's launching in March.

Today during the Inside Xbox show, Ubisoft revealed The Division 2 Xbox One X Bundle. During an interview with one of the developers, Xbox Live's Director of Programming Larry Hryb managed to get him to discuss the Xbox One X version. The developer went on to say that the Xbox One X version should be the "crispest" out of all the console ports. The game would also achieve 4K resolution and utilize HDR to make colors pop.

The Division 2's beta begins in a few days so players should be able to see the visuals for themselves. Ubisoft added that The Division 2 fans will have the opportunity to have a first hands-on with endgame content with one "Invaded" mission, too. They will experience gameplay at the level cap of thirty and unlock brand new "Survivalist," "Sharpshooter," or "Demolitionist" specializations.

Are you excited for the beta? Let us know. Recently, Ubisoft announced that it will exclusively release its PC games on the Epic Games Store going forward. Many consider this to be a major blow to Steam because "AAA" experiences generate a lot of revenue, much more than the sales of a lot of smaller games combined.

  • Or, a good PC. But yeah, Xbox One X is the most powerful console. The fact that it doesn't guarantee people buying/supporting it is a more complex thing.
  • This comment is difficult to comprehend!
  • It's a complex thing
  • too bad about the bullet sponge enemies still
  • What rpg doesn't have enemies that takes multiple hits to put down? Just stop it
  • It is a little different when you are battling fantastical or sci-fi enemies compared to actual humans.
  • No it's not. It's a game element not an actual human and they have a brain. Don't make excuses for that person not using their genius. It's pathetic
  • I'll be skipping Div2. I had enough of the bullet sponge/walking tank enemies - both NPCs and real gamer trolls - in the first game. The only mode actually worth playing (for me) was Skirmish. But one mode is not worth me spending $60+ on.
