A couple of days ago Tom Clancy's The Division's apparent system requirements leaked. As it turns out, these were absolutely correct. These are the final system requirements for The Division for its launch on March 8th.
That's not all though, because we've also got a few additional titbits in regards to the PC release, including some brand new screenshots taken at Ultra graphics settings. And to be honest, if you were after the Xbox One footage, it doesn't look as if the PC version has suffered much of a visual downgrade at all, if any. Provided you've got the right hardware to power it, The Division is going to look absolutely stunning on PC.
So a reminder then of The Division's system requirements. These are now 100% confirmed.
The Division Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-6100 3.3 GHz
- RAM: 6 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
- GPU: GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 7770
- HDD: 40GB Available Space
- DX: DirectX 11
The Division Recommended System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.5GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz
- RAM: 8 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290
You can read a detailed analysis of what we thought of these system requirements in our previous article. Suffice to say. there's a big gap between the minimum and recommended specs, so it looks as if The Division is nice and scalable and should work across a range of systems.
With that out of the way, a few more juicy details. The Division's user interface (UI) will be fully customisable on PC, so you can get it set up exactly how you want. Likewise, both mouse & keyboard and gamepads are fully remappable. We've seen already that there are heaps of graphics options to tweak. Also frame rates will be supported up to 144Hz.
And then there's the small matter of those Ultra PC screens. As you can see, The Division is looking like a bit of a beauty. This is the first ever game to release on the Snowdrop game engine, so it should be a great taster of things to come from Ubisoft.
Bit of a looker, eh?

The Division's beta is set to run from next week, Friday, 29th January, through until Sunday, 31st January. Failing that, the full game hits PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 8th.
