imageThe Division 2 for PC 'Is Not a Console Port' According to Devs - MMORPG.com

Developers working on The Division 2 have posted a new video to remind players that the PC version is "not a port, but is being worked on right alongside all the others". The video showcases some of the PC features that players can expect to find including HDR support, variable refresh rates, wide- and multi-screen support, uncapped framerate & resolution, a custom HUD with hardware optimizations, asynchronous compute, and multithreading of command buffers.

    The PC version of The Division felt like it was built from the ground up for pc players which is one of the reasons I like it so much.

    Sounds awesome!

    Thought the launch of the first one was a let down but got better over time.  Hopefully Ubi does not pull a Bungie and go 2 for 2 in the launch letdown category and do not believe they will which is why I preordered up as I have a ton of hours in the first game.

    Whatever. For me they lost the second they made a "2". Just like Destiny.

    They should have expanded on the original. This "2" bull is just a blatant money grab.

    I don't trust them after the way they dealt with exploiting in the first one. Who cares if it was built from ground up if they feel exploiting to go out of bounds and such is ok in a game with PvP.

    I trust Ubisoft less than EA.

    Lies, All Ubi games are obvious console ports - just check interfaces and controls. Although they are quality ports (good graphics, high FPS, etc.) but controls are barely compatible /usable with mouse + keyboard.

    I 100% agree. If it has a console interface and the UI and controls are clearly made explicitly for a controller and not the far, far superior KB+M, it is a console port. No question about it.

    What, you didn't like Bungie's "9 steps back, no steps forward" approach to D2 base game? ;)

    So they mention features added to a port but claim it is not simply a port lmao.

    To NOT be a port would mean GAMEPLAY/content being DIFFERENT than the console version.To simply add in refresh rates and sliders and VR support does NOTHING to make claim it is not a port.

    Could be more deceptive than just rehashing a few new skins it could be like Studio Wildcard claiming Atlas was it's own game and not a ARK mod/DLC.
    Imo as soon as you see "part 2"it will be same old,a few new maps/skins and sold as a brand new game.
    D2 SHOULD have been sold for $20-30 bucks tops as a mod/dlc and not as it's own game.When you already have the entire template/systems in place there is NO development,it is merely adding in Artist's work and calling it a new game.

    How they screwed up a Halo looter shooter is beyond me.  I do not mind either game but I play the story then stop more or less because the grinding aspect is soooooooooooo boring in those 2 games.

    I understand that ps4 and Xbox1 crossplay currently isnt an option and i doubt that this will change in the near future but i also think that a QuickBooks Support Phone Number crossplay system similiar to fortnite`s would work in The Divison 2 Dark Zone.

    I purchased it as a bundle with all DLCs including Forsaken, and felt I got my money's worth for the campaign and all DLC content.  However, that's after bundling multiple DLCs in.  I felt bad for folks who spent $60 on the base game itself.

    Yeah $140 bucks for about 25-35 hours of campaign would be painful for sure.

    Please do some research... The Division 2 has massive changes and upgrades for basically every gameplay system (based on what they have shown) and takes place in an entirely new area (bigger than the first game). Sure it could have been an expansion (the real kind, not the Destiny kind), but you’d be paying $60 either way, so why keep the baggage.

    As for it being a ‘PC game’... settings are always nice, but the controls are far more important. Not that I’m too worried here as The Division controls quite well with KB/M and they are ditching the clunky radial menus.

    The 'economy' on the other hand is far more worrying, as based on the pre-order and special edition bonuses, and Ubisoft just being Ubisoft, I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up feeling like a F2P mobile game (i.e. MTX, loot-boxes, and 1% RNG chances like they are going out of style).

    If we get the game it will be on PlayStation. I liked the Division but I didn't like how the coolest stuff was in the dark zone and it was suddenly thunderdome and forget helping people and rebuilding civilization. I liked that it was heavily tactical and encouraged cooperative strategies.

    I have it preordered on UPlay. I really like The Division. I am hoping the Division 2 will address some of the issues I had with the first. The PC version will allow me to flex my PC's muscle. =)

    Meh, I got Div 2 free with my gpu. Doubt I'll ever even install it, as I couldn't even last through the few hours of demo ( still have 3 or 4 hours left on it lol ) on Div 1 before uninstalling.

    How you figure? The engine is all new, new world map, new tactics, new everything? The Original will be 3 years old when this gets released. Its not a MMORPG, its MMO Co-Op. Cash grabs are games like COD.

    Don't be fooled this guy needs no PC to flex. I've played with him and he's very good. I don't want to admit I was carried most of the way, but... :D

    I started playing The Division at launch on PS4, a good game with some flaws at launch wich most ppl probably remember. Im normally a PC player so i gave the game a go at PC also after 6 month on PS4 or so. And the game went from good to probably one of the best games i have ever played! And i couldnt care less if it was a port or not because for me the whole "feel" and gameplay went to a whole new league for me compared to the console version.

    And same thing goes for The Division 2, really happy they made this and together with Lost Ark the game im looing forward to the most. No matter how good the original game is it do have some years on its back and to build on a working formula and making The Division 2 is for me awesome. As long as the same PC feel is still there i dont care at all if its a port or not :)

    Cheers and sorry about the english...

    I was lucky/smart enough to not jump into Div2 until after the big rebalance patch they put out that made the mobs a little less bullet-spongy and had a good time with the game.
    I only poked my head into a Dark Zone, immediately got it shot off by a roving gang and said 'yep, still don't like pvp' and proceeded to enjoy my pve experience.

    Still, I know how Ubi is, and will once again wait and see.

    If they make expansions, money grab. If they make a new game, money grab. If they make DLC's, money grab. If they have in game stores, money grab. Monthly fee? Money grab...Is there anything that game developers can do to earn a salary and fund their projects that isn't a money grab?
