The beta for The Division 2 has officially launched, and with it, the chance to play the game before the games launch in March. The first Division title was good, but full of bugs and content issues, Ubisoft is hoping with this sequel that they’ll fix everything that went on with the original title and make it better for players. That’s why the beta is so important to them, they want to make sure that gamers are having a good time, and that they can make it through the beta without many issues.
Ubisoft made a post on their site talking about their beta and what they are doing during its run:
During the Private Beta, we will be fully testing Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 together with you and we cannot wait to hear what you think about it. To ensure the smoothest game experience, we will be publishing a list of Known Issues on the forums that we are aware of and working on fixing. There are two important ones that we want to raise before the Beta itself starts. These are high priority issues for us that will be fixed, but are present in the Beta.
Apparently, there are some issues with getting into the game that Ubisoft has been made aware of, and they offer solutions on what to do:
We are aware of an issue where your game client will crash after an extended gameplay session. To circumvent this, we recommend that you restart your game client every two to three hours. Secondly, on all platforms, if you are outside the game and receive a game invite from a friend within the game, your client will crash at launch. To work around this problem, make sure to start the game first and join group directly from inside the game.
The beta is live now, and The Division 2 will be out soon.
