The private beta begins today for tactical shooter sequel The Division 2. Ubisoft notes that the client will crash "after an extended gameplay session" on Xbox One and PC. To avoid this, Ubisoft recommends restarting the beta client "every two to three hours". If you preordered, you can redeem the code you should have received on the website as well, which should give you access to the game on the platform that you picked the game up on.
Verify your email - make sure you have access to it, as this is where you will receive your Private Beta key & access instructions before it starts.
If you fancy getting some hands-on time with Ubisoft's latest shoot 'em up set in Washington D.C., with teams of players battling to reinstate government authority, ahead of its launch on 15 March, now is your chance. Players will experience gameplay at the level cap of 30 and unlock brand new Survivalist, Sharpshooter or Demolitionist specializations.
If you're a fan of the original Division and want a code for the private beta, there are two ways to go about it.
"Unless you were invited yourself, you can invite up to 3 friends to fight on your side". "At character creation, you are able to cycle through presets of customization features to randomize your Agent". Each will be encouraging teammates to login during the Private Beta period, which begins is now running until Monday (February 11th).
On PS4, the Division 2 beta install size is even larger, coming in at 50.5 GB. Only one Dark Zone area will be available in the Beta, there will be three in total in the final game. Shortly after launch, users started sharing bugs and issues on the Division 2 forums.
