While, as per an unfortunate Ubisoft tradition, the Division doesn’t look quite as good as it did during its E3 debut, the game will be offering some extra graphical features for Nvidia users.
HBAO+ will allow for improved shadows and more in-depth lighting effects surrounding detailed objects. PCSS will allow for shadows that realistically soften as they get more distant from the object they’re being cast by.
Given the Division’s bundling deal with Nvidia graphics cards, it’s perhaps no surprise that GameWorks features would be included. Whether those features are bonuses or an unfair slight to Radeon users is a matter of either perspective or business dealings.
