With the imminent release of Tom Clancy’s:The Division, Ubisoft have released the day one patch notes that will accompany the game at launch. Not least of these fixes are numerous graphic improvements and with the game looking as good as it did in the last Beta it’ll be interesting to see how these change the look and feel of the place. It’s good to see Ubisoft taking on the feedback and information gleaned from the Beta testing done by the community in the days leading up to launch. Go Ubisoft!
