Ubisoft has today confirmed the dates for the private beta of upcoming shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 as running from February 7 – 11, 2019. Players who have pre-ordered the game will get automatic access, whereas everyone else will have to sign up online to have a chance to participate.
A new trailer for the game reveals more about the background story and introduces three new factions into the game, check out the official blurb on them below:
- True Sons: A paramilitary force that relies on combat expertise and overwhelming firepower to dominate their enemies and expand their territory. Smart and organised, the True Sons are led by a former JTF officer whose ruthlessness and cunning make him a dangerous adversary.
- Hyenas: A loosely organised gang of opportunistic raiders that prey on struggling civilian encampments through violence and intimidation. These hedonistic scavengers take everything they can steal and destroy everything else to deprive their enemies of valuable resources. The Hyenas are led by a council of the strongest pack leaders.
- Outcasts: Bitter survivors of a forced quarantine bent on revenge against those who brutally imprisoned them and the society that stood by and let it happen. Their charismatic, bloodthirsty leader believes everyone is complicit and urges her followers to punish the guilty by spreading sickness and murdering indiscriminately.
Ubisoft have also listened to feedback from the original The Division title to improve this sequel experience.
