The Division 2 Open Beta Dates Revealed

Mr. Smith goes to Washington.

If you were unable to get a spot for The Division 2's private beta, you'll be glad to know the open beta isn't far off. From March 1 to March 4, anybody on Xbox One, PS4, and PC can sign up to play the public beta for The Division 2.

The Division 2's private beta ran from February 7 to February 11, and was available to anyone who pre-ordered The Division 2. There was also a limited sign-up sheet for players lucky enough to snag a spot on the beta. None of that should apply to the open beta, but Ubisoft is promising more details on how to access it later.

Open beta players should expect similar content as available in The Division 2's private beta. That means there should be two story missions on normal and hard difficulties, as well as five open world side missions. There's also one Dark Zone endgame area to try, along with two PvP modes.

The Division 2 is Ubisoft Massive's sequel 2016's The Division. The action moves from a quarantined New York City to a quarantined Washington D.C. The nation's capital is in ruins, and various factions have taken over the city. Players need to work together as part of a special military unit to restore order. You know, normal "save America" stuff.

We got a chance to play The Division 2's endgame earlier this month and was impressed by the ambitious scope of Ubisoft's post-game content. Ubisoft Massive even has a year's worth of free content for players once they beat the main campaign.

Check out our The Division 2 guide for more info on the beta, as well as our full coverage. The Division 2 comes out on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 15.
