A new post on the website for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 welcomes us to the open beta for the upcoming sequel, a bit prematurely, as the beta isn’t set to commence until Friday. Ubisoft is obviously worked up about this, though, as they accompany this with a new open beta trailer and they also offer another new post outlining everything that’s changing since the conclusion of the private beta. Finally, for those who can’t wait until the testing resumes, they also announce their “state of the game” livestreams are back, so we can tune in on Wednesday to see where things stand. They offer details on the Dark Zone, how Conflict mode will offer a sample of organized 4v4 PvP action, and the end game content the beta will include. Here’s an overview:
Welcome to The Division 2 Open Beta! If you did not get the chance to participate in our Private Beta phase, now is your chance! Available from March 1 – 4 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, we want to welcome you as you take your first steps into Washington, D.C. The beta introduces you to some of the unique features The Division 2 has to offer—main missions, side missions, open world activities, and one of the three Dark Zones—to name a few.
For everyone who has already participated in the Private Beta, here are the additional content highlights for the Open Beta:
- Character level cap increase to level 8
- An additional Story mission—Viewpoint Museum
- An additional Skill—Chem Launcher with two variants, Riot Foam and Explosive Vapor
- Two additional Settlement Projects with the second upgrade of the Theater
- An additional Skirmish PVP map—Capitol Ruins
You are limited to one character during the testing phase, and this character can be deleted. At character creation, you are able to cycle through presets of customization features to randomize your Agent. Remember that character progression is capped at level eight during this period.
Three main missions are available on Normal and Hard modes—Grand Washington Hotel, Jefferson Trade Center, and Viewpoint Museum—to offer a smaller piece of a much larger, compelling narrative we are telling from start to finish.
As you explore D.C., five optional Side Missions will also be available for everyone who prefer to branch out from the main storyline.
