With little more than a month to go before its alleged March 8th release date, The Division needs to get some serious testing under its belt. As part of this effort, Ubisoft is launching a much-ballyhooed closed beta test this weekend, with Xbox One players starting tomorrow at 4:00 a.m. EST, followed by PC and PlayStation 4 gamers at 7:00 a.m. EST on the 29th. The game can be preloaded so that people can jump in right from the start and get the most out of the test before its end on the 31st.
A few things that you need to know for The Division’s CBT: It will require a hefty amount of hard drive space, it’s already plagued by several documented bugs, it will not be covered by an NDA, and you’ll need to sign up for Ubisoft’s Uplay service to access it on any platform. It would be wise to check out the system requirements against your machine as well.
There’s even a LFG service that’s being put together between VG247 and The100.io to group players up quickly and appropriately, if you are looking for some buddies to watch your back.
