Ubisoft just announced the heavily-anticipated details for the upcoming private Beta for The Division 2. The beta will be available between 7 February 2019 and 10 February 2019.
There are two ways to gain access to this testing run, you can either pre-order The Division 2 or you can register on the game’s main website for a chance to win an invite. Pre-ordering the game is the only guaranteed way to participate. Learn more about the beta by heading over to Ubisoft’s official site.
Check out the newest trailer for the game down below. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is scheduled to release on March 15, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep in mind that the PC version of The Division 2 will be exclusive to UPlay and the Epic Games Store, as it’s skipping Steam entirely.
What’s actually in the beta? Well, for one thing, players will be restricted to a single character. The appearance of said character will be randomized using the assets Ubisoft has developed for the game, so full character customization is out. This is probably being done to allow for a decent amount of testing on the various character assets to check for clipping bugs or other visual issues. The final major limitation is that all content in the Beta will be capped at Level 7 during the test.
That’s still a huge amount of content and will allow players to take on a variety of different PvE and PvP challenges during the testing window. Players will get access to two main missions and five side missions, explore the three different Dark Zone sections for PvPvE action, and play 4v4 organized PvP with Skirmish. There’s also a teaser of the end-game in The Division 2 with the “Invaded” mission. That mission will include a slice of level 30 content with specialized loadouts for players to experiment with.
If you want to learn more about this game, Ubisoft is already pumping the hype machine into overdrive to get you some of that content you desperately crave. The developers recently released a bunch of details showcasing the various special editions of The Division 2, and their included rewards, in a recent trailer. There’s a ton of different versions of the shooter, and there’s some pre-order bits too. The publisher/developer also teased the various multiplayer modes, called Dark Zones, in another trailer.
