Ahead of the launch in a few weeks Ubisoft will be conducting an open beta for The Division across all platforms running from February 19 to 21. Content is expected to be pretty much the same as what was seen in the closed beta, but with an additional story mission to tackle. If you're still undecided as to whether or not The Division is worth a look then the beta is great way to find out exactly what sort of game it is.

A game, as it turns out, with a lot of potential to be great. Something which the new 'factions' trailer demonstrates. Here's hoping that at some point you can take on missions for particular factions, and that the RPG nature of the world extends to who gets to be in charge.

Probably not though, seeing as the focus seems to be on building up The Division. But, it's good to find out who's roaming the streets of Manhattan.

To access the beta please use the following guide:
XBOX ONE: Go to Games and search for Tom Clancy's The Division Open Beta
PS4: Go to the Playstation Store and search for Tom Clancy's The Division Open Beta
UPLAY PC: Launch Uplay PC, the Division Open Beta will be in your Free Games list

Last night I deleted Division Beta as I was downloading the pre-load of the full game, then today saw there was another beta. Pretty annoyed initially but now it looks like it's a different beta, so i didnt' delete 25gb unnecessarily.

Think I'll just wait for the full game, the last beta gave me enough of an idea of what to expect from it and it sounds like from those patch notes they're addressing a lot of the issues, so I'm more confident now at least that it'll be good come release.
Posted 09:38am 15/2/16
Just wondering, is Feb 19th to 21st AU dates or US dates?
Posted 07:23pm 15/2/16
the dates are US time, like the closed beta.
Posted 01:43pm 16/2/16
how do i get in??
Posted 02:26pm 16/2/16
it should show up as a title card in the free games part in your uplay account. havent checked in a few days but you can probably preload it if not now then sometime soon. then they'll expire it at the end of monday
Posted 05:34pm 16/2/16
pre load is up, if you didn't f*** off your closed beta install it's just a 1.6gb update.
Posted 08:00pm 16/2/16
derp yeah i f***ed it off

it would have been good of them to mention that they would just diff the baseline install to the new build on the uplay card at the end of the last beta
Posted 10:21am 17/2/16
Yeah it would have. They actually mentioned that at launch you will need to re dl the whole thing so I guess a lot of ppl just uninstalled not thinking about another beta.
