The Division 2 is hosting its first technical alpha test this weekend

Capital idea!

Although Ubisoft’s upcoming MMO shooter The Division 2 isn’t set to launch until March of next year, some lucky players will be able to get their hands on the game this weekend during its technical alpha test. The test, which will run from December 15th at 8 a.m. EST until December 18th at 5 a.m. EST, will be available only to PC players, and it will be available only to “a small number of pre-selected players.” There’s no mention of exactly how much of the game’s content will be available for testing, and it’s unlikely that we’re going to find out, as the test is under a strict NDA.

The Division 2 will be taking the post-apocalyptic action from New York City to Washington, D.C., which is an interesting choice considering Ubisoft’s recent statement that “it could not and would not be openly political.” As our own Eliot Lefebvre noted, however, that statement was made in regard to the original The Division and not The Division 2, so perhaps there will be some political bite to the sequel after all. We’ll just have to wait and find out when the game launches in March, 2019.
