Ubisoft’s upcoming game, The Division, has caused quite a stir at the last couple of E3 events. Although an exact release date has yet to be set, we may already have a look at the PC system requirements and they are pretty reasonable.
These specifications have been reported on by multiple smaller news sites. Each one claims that the information came from Ubisoft itself, however, I could find no evidence of an official announcement so for now, treat this as rumor and we will update this story should we receive confirmation.
For minimum requirements, you’ll need 3GB of RAM, an AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ or an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700. On the GPU side you will want at least an AMD R7 250 or an Nvidia GeForce GTS 450.
Those looking to crank up the settings will apparently need an AMD Phenom II x6 1100T or an Intel Core i5-4430 CPU, 6GB of RAM and an AMD R9 280 or Nvidia GTX 760 graphics card. As we noted, some sources are claiming that this information came straight from Ubisoft but there is no trace to back up those claims at present so this information may end up being false.
The Division is set to be a squad based open-world shooter with RPG and survival elements thrown in. It will be running on the very promising Snowdrop engine. However, there have been concerns in the past that the PC version of the game will be cut down to achieve graphical parity with the next-gen consoles. Something Ubisoft has been accused of doing in several titles, including Watch Dogs and Far Cry 4.

KitGuru Says: The Division seemed like a promising game, unfortunately with Ubisoft involved it is hard to really get excited about it given the publisher’s track record over the course of 2014.
