The Division 2 Update Adds PS5 Enhancements, Resident Evil Crossover Begins Today

The Division 2 is another game players can add to the list of those receiving enhancements for the latest generation of consoles. Today’s patch has added enhanced graphics for those playing on PS5, as well as kicking off a crossover event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise.

Title Update 12.1 has added 4K 60 FPS support for PlayStation 5 players. This is the closest those players will get to an improved version of the game bearing in mind Ubisoft Massive has already stated there won’t be a proper PS5 port for the game.

The Resident Evil apparel event has also started. Players will be able to unlock new themed outfits using apparel keys, as well as collecting seven back trophies and four patches. The patches and trophies are earned through S.T.A.R.S. Support and S.T.A.R.S. Assault projects, which have replaced the previous level 40 BOO daily projects. Players can also get the Leon Kennedy RPD Outfit simply by logging in between today, February 2, and February 15.

The patch also added a number of quality of life improvements, the full list of which can be seen below:
