Tom Clancy's The Division will only be available to all tomorrow but Ubisoft sent us two unlocked codes for the PC version of the game so we could prepare a few gameplay videos. It's too soon to tell you how the game performs, but in the following extracts, you'll see that our rig (i5 4670K @ 4.1 GHz, 8 Go RAM, Windows 10, SLI Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 Gigabyte OC) is doing pretty well on ultra. That being said, we had a few frame rate issues towards the end of the prolog, but as it might be a problem on our end, we'll wait until we know more about what caused them. We may be live tonight playing the game, but we won't be able to confirm it until later today. Stay tuned. Update 2: Added three videos showing the first Security wing mission, captured in Ultra by Miguel.

EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (58 minutes ago)
If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (1 Hour ago)
I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (1 Hour ago)
This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
