The developers at Ubisoft Massive officially announce that the third-person shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division is set to receive PlayStation 4 Pro support in a new patch.
As of late, the fan base for Tom Clancy’s The Division seems to be returning to the game after it encountered innumerable issues throughout 2016, with player numbers increasing in a positive manner since a drop-off in would-be Agents earlier this year. Now, the developers at Ubisoft Massive are catering to fans who are starting to primarily play their games on Sony’s upgraded PlayStation 4 Pro system, by promising that the third-person shooter will eventually get a patch receive support for the console.
Ubisoft announced that The Division would be receiving such an update during its weekly State of the Game livestream for the title. Although developers have confirmed that the patch is impending, it offered no specific details insofar as to what kind of visuals should be expected on the PlayStation 4 Pro in the future.
However, Ubisoft did go on to discuss the The Division‘s latest DLC expansion, Survival. For those unaware, the add-on launched back in November for Xbox One and PC, and and will come out for PS4 alongside the PlayStation 4 Pro support patch on December 20.
As previously revealed, once The Division‘s Survival expansion has made its way onto all of the game’s platforms, the title’s final piece of paid content, Last Stand, will come out in early 2017. As many fans of the game may recall, Last stand was originally scheduled to come out this winter, but was delayed due to “lingering issues.”
Once the The Division receives its PlayStation 4 Pro patch, it will join the ranks of plenty other major titles to receive an update for the console. As a matter of fact, one of the more prominent games that released recently to have pledged support at launch for the system is Final Fantasy 15. Even some games that released last year have gotten behind Sony’s updated hardware, with Bethesda promising that the next major update for Fallout 4 will support the console.
Beyond The Division‘s developers working to bring the title up to speed for the PlayStation 4 Pro, it remains to be seen if Ubisoft Massive will be able to get the game’s active player base back up to its original figures from when the game first launched. Perhaps the studio’s offer to allow fans to experience a free weekend with the game on PC will sway newcomers into joining in on the action on a more consistent basis by officially picking up a copy of The Division.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
