With the beta sign-up already well on its way, some gameplay footage for Tom Clancy’s The Division alpha testing has leaked out. Lasting just over 20 minutes, the footage shows off pretty much all of the major game features from the map and combat to the in-game menus. The game is set to launch March 8th, 2016, after being delayed from its original launch this year. Overall, the leak demonstrates how The Division is an open-world game.
While the graphics aren’t the best, keep in mind that this is still the alpha release of the game. This means we can hopefully expect a lot more work to go towards better graphics and performance optimizations. This footage is also from the Xbox version of the game so we can expect the PC version to look better. The game will still most likely be capped at 30FPS which hopefully means the graphics will wow players and keep FPS to a constant 30 at least.
Looking at the HUD and UI, it is plain to see the console roots in that regard. Hopefully, PC gamers will get a worthy release and one that shows off the intriguing story. Whether or not the delays were worth it remains to be seen.
