The Division 2 has a lot of pressure on it. Not just because it’s a AAA title from the minds at Ubisoft, or the sequel to a rather popular game in The Division, but mainly because for everything The Division did right, they did a lot of things wrong too, and it showed. Ubisoft promised that this sequel would be way better than the first one in every way, and they’re going to get the chance to prove that very soon, because the open beta for the title is coming. This week in fact.
On their website, Ubisoft gave a breakdown on the open beta, and what it would be like:
Welcome to The Division 2 Open Beta! If you did not get the chance to participate in our Private Beta phase, now is your chance! Available from March 1 – 4 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, we want to welcome you as you take your first steps into Washington, D.C. The beta introduces you to some of the unique features The Division 2 has to offer—main missions, side missions, open world activities, and one of the three Dark Zones—to name a few.
Here are more details on the beta, including character usage:
You are limited to one character during the testing phase, and this character can be deleted. At character creation, you are able to cycle through presets of customization features to randomize your Agent. Remember that character progression is capped at level eight during this period.
Three main missions are available on Normal and Hard modes—Grand Washington Hotel, Jefferson Trade Center, and Viewpoint Museum—to offer a smaller piece of a much larger, compelling narrative we are telling from start to finish. As you explore D.C., five optional Side Missions will also be available for everyone who prefer to branch out from the main storyline.
If you were able to get in on the private beta, you’ll get even more content to enjoy.
