Ubisoft has finally announced the next testing phase for The Division 2, which is something fans have clamored over for weeks now. It appears as though everyone will be able to jump in this time around. The open beta for The Division 2 will kick off early next month on March 1st and will last until March 4th. This trial period will be available across all of the game’s platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
This next phase of testing is more in line with a beta or demo for gamers to enjoy. The game is relatively feature-complete Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is powered by the Snowdrop Engine, meaning that it should be able to deliver next-gen graphics when it drops later this year. In terms of what content will be in the open beta though, Ubisoft hasn’t shared any details, but it seems fairly likely that given the short timeframe between the two, the build in the public beta will be the same as the one from the private beta.
The game features a huge variety of in-game content, especially when it comes to the end-game when players hit the end of the story. One part of that end-game is the challenging factions system which blends PvP and PvE elements into one experience. In addition to that, there’s a ton of new content coming with the campaign as well, such as new gadgets and weapons that offer new abilities and gameplay mechanics compared to the first game.
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.
In other news, The Division 2 is also getting a console bundle for the Xbox One X as well.
The Division 2 releases next month on March 15 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
