The Division

Ubisoft will host an open beta for The Division from February 19 to 21 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Xbox One users will have 24-hour early access beginning February 18. Pre-load for the open beta will be available across all consoles on February 16.

In addition to the content that was featured in the closed beta, the open beta will include an all new story mission for players to explore in their pursuit to save the city. Everyone who participates in the beta will receive a special in-game reward which will unlock for players when the full game is released.

Ubisoft also released a new trailer detailing The Division‘s enemy factions:

Tom Clancy’s The Division takes place weeks after a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. One by one, basic services fail and in only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, is activated to save society. Team up with other players to investigate the source of the virus, protect civilians from dangerous factions, and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.

The Division is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8.
