The release of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is coming up quickly, but players will be still able to get their hands on it a lot sooner than that with the beta, which is now live.
This will be the first time that you will be able to get your hands on Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world multiplayer shooter, before the full game is launched on March 15.
Below you’ll be able to find the beta’s release date, information that has been announced about it so far and some more details about how to access the new content as and when it’s revealed.
The beta for The Division 2 will be available to play between February 7-11 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms.Ubisoft have officially released when players will be able to preload the demo, and the exact times at which it will start and begin.
Players will be able to take part in two main missions in The Division 2 beta, once they have successfully st up their base inside the White House. There will also be five additional side missions alongside a few objectives that can be found and completed in the open world portion of the game.
Player vs Player vs Everyone gameplay and Player vs Player modes will both be available in the beta, in the Dark Zone and Skirmish modes respectively. Players will be able to level up to level seven, but will be unable to progress any further.
For those wondering what the gameplay will be like, this walkthrough trailer below from Microsoft’s 2018 E3 press conference should be a pretty good indicator.
The Division 2’s beta can be obtained in two ways.
Firstly, you could pre-order it, either online or from a retailer, to be granted a code. Secondly, sign up for an access code on their official website.
The sign-up option involves some simple steps. Select the platform on which you’d like to play the game – whether that be Xbox One, PS4 or PC. Sign in to a Uplay account. If you don’t have one already, simply sign up with them online. From there, confirm your email address and register your interest.
The only downside to online beta sign-ups like this is that you’re not guaranteed to receive a code, but it seems like you can still request one even though the beta has offically went live.
