The Division 2 Patch 12.1

Update: The Division 2's big title update 12.1 — patch 1.30 on PlayStation consoles — is available to download now following additional server maintenance.

The headline act here is that the update allows the game to flourish on PS5 in terms of performance. Playing The Division 2 via backwards compatibility will see it run at 60 frames-per-second in 4K resolution.

Fortunately, patch 1.30 isn't a huge download. It weighs in at 4.5GB on PS4 and PS5.

Original Story: The Division 2 has a big update incoming, but actually getting it live is proving to be more difficult than the developers envisioned. In order to prepare the game for patch 12.1, scheduled maintenance was set to take place this morning, running into the early afternoon. However, said maintenance will now continue for additional five hours, and should conclude this evening instead.

According to the official forums, maintenance should conclude around 16:30 UK time. Fortunately for those of you in the US, it's not such a big deal.

In any case, we'll be sure to update this article once the patch is live. If you haven't been keeping up, patch 12.1 adds PS5 support to the looter shooter, allowing it to run at 60 frames-per-second at 4K resolution on Sony's current-gen system. The update also marks the beginning of a cool-looking Resident Evil crossover event.
