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

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.

I don’t even care about the politics. In a post-apocalyptic world, where the rule of law has completely collapsed and you are forced to fight for your very survival, politics will be the last damn thing to worry about… I just want it to not be a bug-riddled pile of garbage. Div 1 was good after a few updates, and I’m hoping this only builds on that.

I just hope that for once devs learned something from the first game’s crappy launch and tech issues. And they took to heart the Destiny, Destiny 2 melodrama.

Come on boyz! Get it right!

Ubisoft has had the luxury to watch their own (Division 1), Destiny/Destiny 2, and Fallout 76 makes HUGE blunders.

If they haven’t learned that by March they’d either put out a near perfect game or delay it until later, no company will ever learn the lesson.

The way things are going they won’t have to worry because, “Lordy, there are tapes”.

A certain someone may resign by the time this game has launched the way things are moving so fast now there won’t be much politics to worry about.

Would be kind of funny to go into the White House and see it all destroyed… except for a lone, dirty red hat on the desk.

Anyway, no notice for me but I’m planning on PS4 play so I didn’t expect one.
