Tom Clancy’s The Division is coming to PC after many requests from the gaming community. However, it won’t simply be a slap-dash port. Ubisoft Massive has pledged a fully-optimised experience.

In a blog post published today, the studio wrote, “As you know, Massive has its roots in PC development. We are working hard and we want to make sure that we have a very high quality experience on PC. You can be sure that our PC version won’t be a port, but a full-fledged, optimized version! We want to create the best game possible regardless of what platform you play on.”

Elsewhere, Ubisoft Massive publihed a pair of comparison shots to show off the Snowdrop Engine’s day/night cycle, and the way that snow collects and melts depending on the weather.
