Ubisoft is extending the closed beta for The Division until Tuesday, February 2 (12 noon CET, 6 AM EST, 3 AM PST, 10PM AEST).

“Over the last few days, we’ve seen an incredible amount of excitement for the game, leading to many of you registering on the waitlist for a chance to join our Closed Beta,” wrote Ubisoft community manager Natchai Stappers on the game’s official forums. “We’ve been working very hard to let as many players as possible join, while still maintaining a smooth experience for everyone.”

“Earlier today, we announced that we were now inviting as many players as possible from the waitlist, in addition to those who had guaranteed pre-order access. We’ve started sending invites, with priority given to those who signed up first.”

“In order to allow everyone who has access to fully enjoy the Beta, we’re happy to announce we’re extending the duration by 24 hours for all players.”

Some players of The Division’s beta are complaining that games on the PC are being plagued with cheaters.

As Ubisoft’s new shooter extracts the level XP and ammo from the player’s PC, the system is open to abuse by players who are able to manually override their settings. Consequently, savvy players can give themselves unlimited ammo, and super speed so fast, it essentially renders their character invisible, making combat in The Dark Zone almost impossible for some.
