Rumors swirled earlier this week that The Division would start its beta testing this month; lo and behold, the rumors are true. Players can start testing the game on the Xbox One on January 28th, with the beta remaining as a platform exclusive for one day before PlayStation 4 and PC players get into the beta on January 29th.
Don’t get too comfortable in the beta whatever you do, though, as it ends on January 31st. It’s more of a stress test for the servers than an extended opportunity for testing, in short. The closed beta comes not too far in advance of the game’s currently planned launch date of March 8th, 2016.
