The Division 2 Private Beta Dates Announced

Pre-orders include access to the beta.

The Division 2 private beta will begin on February 7. Ubisoft also released a new trailer with additional details for the beta.

Players who pre-order The Division 2 will be able to secure a spot on the Private Beta, while others can try registering online for an invite depending on if there's space. The private beta will start on February 7 and last until February 10. It will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The Division 2 is a sequel to Ubisoft's 2016 live-service military shooter where players try and protect a quarantined New York City overrun by marauders. The sequel moves the action to Washington D.C., where a civil war has left the nation's capital isolated from the rest of the world. Players can join up with friends and try to reclaim D.C. from bands of mercenaries. Though, just remember that it's all a work of fiction and not a veiled metaphor on real-life politics.

As an online live-service game The Division 2 will support various co-op events like raids. There will also be free post-launch DLC throughout 2019.

Ubisoft says there will be even more details about the beta as it gets closer to launch. We already have The Division 2 PC specs, though they could be different for the beta. In the meantime, you can watch the brand-new story trailer Ubisoft released which shows the dysfunction of D.C. post-law and order.
