The Division – watch the E3 reveal and latest footage compared side-by-side

Ubisoft and the rest of us knew a comparison like this will eventually be happening.


With the most recent footage released for The Division, we now have a better idea of what the game is actually going to be about. We also have a tonne of footage from a near-final build of the game to go thorugh, and although it looks amazing, comparing it with the E3 2013 reveal and demos that followed doesn’t do it any favours.

Eurogamer goes over some of the key missing features and graphical effects in this video, which compares the initial reveal with the recent Xbox One footage. As the video points out, we’ll have to wait for fully maxed-out PC footage to know for sure.

That and the fact it’s nowhere near as bad as Watch Dogs.
