The Division’s open beta confirmed for February 19

Last week’s rumors of The Division’s open beta have proven true, as Ubisoft has finally confirmed.

“Whether you’re a veteran of the closed beta or this is your first time stepping into an Agent’s shoes, you’ll be able to jump into the open beta from February 19-21 on PS4, PC and Xbox One,” says the studio. “Also, Xbox One players can get started a day early with exclusive 24-hour early access beginning on February 18, but players on all platforms can preload the beta starting February 16.”

The open beta will include a new story mission and grant all participants an in-game reward come launch day.

Ubisoft says it’s “resolved most of the PC cheating issues” that plagued the closed beta. “All of them will be resolved by launch on March 8.”

Akami haha yep, I agree. I was about 50/50 on buying this game to check it out(not expecting much, looks generic AF)…now with BDO out before Division I doubt I’ll even pay attention to the division at all.

If this open beta is just as content starved as the closed beta, I dont expect a lot of good reviews to come from it.

Why must they release this at the same time as BDO?  Been looking forward to the division for years, at now I probably won’t even get it.  Le sigh….

Estranged  Yes.  I do like controllers for games like this, but I worry about the ports between PC and consoles.  I’ll probably go PC first and see how it goes.

Good, I’m interesting in playing this on my PS4 and PC to see the difference.  Do love my PS controller for shooters.

So sure.  I’ll jump in.  What is the worst that could happen…

Actually, the worst would be that I enjoy the game so much that along with SWTOR, BnS, and BDO, I will “have to” make room for The Division.  So, yeah, no sleep.  Just don’t have the time for it.  I will work however, unless my dreams come true and I win the lotto.

Come on baby!  Daddy wants to retire and play games for the rest of his life!

Guess I’ll log in to get whatever that reward is, but I don’t want to spoil any more of the game prior to release.

Higgens Just like all betas for the past… oh… ten years or so.

The only reliable way to remove cheating issues is to have staff consistently moderating the game. Everything else is a technological arms race that developers are bound to lose.

So this “beta” is just a timed demo?

Yeah, it’s a beta.

This is awesome news, wish it was sooner and for longer but good enough.

“All of them will be resolved by launch on March 8.” – Hey Ubisoft, are you interested in some prime estate on the moon ? I heard it’ll be habitable by the end of the decade.

I don’t normally beta games but this one I’m really on the fence about so would like to give it a try but.. I fly out on Saturday morning at 5:30 am so…probably wont happen.

MatthewRiddle I’m guessing it will appear in your u-play client on the 19th.

Can you sign up for the beta? I’m not seeing ‘how to get into the beta’ anywhere on the site.

Neat, will definitely jump in to see if the gameplay interests me or not. Was hoping this would be coming sooner rather than later.

I approve of this date range… I won’t be out of town or busy playing Battletech and watching Deadpool!
