Ubisoft confirm The Division’s open beta, here’s all the details you need

by on February 9, 2016

Ubisoft have confirmed that Tom Clancy’s The Division will be getting an open beta this month, following its accidental leak last week by Xbox Italia.

The open beta is set to take place from February 19 to 21 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Those wishing to participate in the beta can preload the content starting February 16. Xbox One players will also have exclusive 24-hour early access starting on February 18.

The open beta will offer a complete new mission, different from the one playable in the closed beta. Players who participate will receive a special in-game reward which will carry over to the full game upon release.

For those who have no idea what the storyline of the game is, see here: “Tom Clancy’s The Division takes place weeks after a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. One by one, basic services fail and in only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, is activated to save society. Team up with other players to investigate the source of the virus, protect civilians from dangerous factions, and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.”

Tom Clancy’s The Division releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on March 8.
