Division open beta coming to Xbox One, PS4, PC
After a closed beta offered a smaller group of players a chance to experience the world of Ubisoft’s upcoming title Tom Clancy’s The Division, the company is set to debut an open beta later this month.
Ubisoft has announced that an open beta for The Division will take place from Feb. 19-21 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, though Xbox One players will have an extra 24-hours of exclusive play on Feb. 18.
The open beta will feature all the content of the closed beta, as well as a new story mission for players to experience. Everyone who tests out the game in the open beta will also receive an in-game reward when the full game is released in March.
The Division allows players to trek out into the expanse of midtown Manhattan either alone or with friends in the wake of an epidemic that has swept the city. Chaos has ensued as food, water, and other basic services are shut down, but The Division, agents hidden amongst society, arise to restore order. A new trailer, alongside the announcement of the open beta showcases the enemies players encounter on the streets of Manhattan.
Watch the new trailer above. The Division launches on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8.
