Microtransaction has been hinted for “The Division,” and given that at the time, the fans were not assured of what this entailed, it was not met with a positive response. Now that the developer has gotten a chance to clear things up, it seems that the microtransaction aspect of “The Division” will not follow the usual pay-to-win approach.

Ubisoft had stated that there will be no better gear that can be purchased, to avoid other players getting advantage by paying for them, Gamepur reported. Magnus Jensen of Ubisoft Massive has stated that the team will sell some things to players, but mostly in the form of cosmetic items.

“We will sell more stuff for you to do in the game in the form of [downloadable content], but there won’t be a pay-to-win or a pay-to-get-better gear or pay-to-get-more-Dark-Zone-credit,” said Jansen as quoted by Gamepur.

Recently, there has also been talk of a rather groundbreaking feature for “The Division.” The developer has been aiming to add more features to the PS4 and Xbox One version, so much so that console players can now enjoy graphical setting changes, similar to how the PC players are able to do it.

“We do have to keep it in check with the consoles; it would be kind of unfair to push it so far away from them,” the developer said as quoted by GameSpot. “I’m really happy that we’re pushing the PC build as much as we are; there’s a lot more customised options than the console.”

Ubisoft is quick to add, however, that there is a dedicated PC build for “The Division.” The game is also aiming to do more for the consoles. So far, it has been confirmed that frame rates can be improved for “The Division” even in the PS4 and Xbox One versions, which makes the game’s setting options unique.

It gives players more freedom to have a choice of whether to go with better frame rate or better visuals, Eurogamer reported. A sample of how the graphics settings can be tweaked in “The Division” can be seen in the video below.

“The Division” has just recently enjoyed a closed beta last January. There have been speculations of an open beta happening, though Ubisoft has yet to announce anything to make it official. It will be launching on the PS4, Xbox One and PC come March 8.
