The Division Receives Xbox One X Enhancements With New Update

The Division is now playable in ultra 4K HD.

Tom Clancy's The Division just received a substantial new update that includes Xbox One X enhancements to the game. The update makes The Division 4K Ultra HD enhanced.

As we've seen in games like Red Dead Redemption, Xbox One X Enhancements make a significant improvement to a game's performance and visuals. The Division will similarly benefit from the extra power available on Microsoft's powerful platform.

Other improvements with the 1.8.1 update include: Increased drop rates from Classified Gear, Legendary difficulty for Amherst's Apartment and Grand Central Station, 40+ new commendations, Global Events with Classified Gear Set specific to each set, Season Pass supply drops now award 100 Division Tech, and bug fixes.

The update also includes two new global events, Blackout and Onslaught, which will be available at the end of April and end of May respectively.

The Division is one of Ubisoft's most successful new franchises, which is why Ubisoft announced The Division 2 earlier this year. Our Division review awarded the game a 4.5 out of 5, praising thrilling action and RPG elements wrapped in a fascinating setting.

The story of The Division centers around a covert team sent into a barricaded Manhattan that's been cut off from the rest of the country. You can check out our Division guide for tips and walkthroughs of the game.

We'll probably hear more about The Division 2 at this year's E3, hopefully in the form of a trailer or at least a first look at the game's development. You can probably expect Ubisoft to support The Division 2 for several years with post-launch content.
