If you can’t wait to explore the ruins of Washington, D.C., there’s good news – the beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 starts in February. Ubisoft has finally provided some more specific details on when the beta’s taking place, alongside a new story trailer and a breakdown of the three enemy factions you’ll be dealing with.
The private beta starts on February 7 and ends on February 11, giving you an extended weekend with the game ahead of the Division 2 release date in March. Pre-orders, whether they come through Uplay or the Epic Games store, will guarantee access to the beta. You can also sign up for a “chance” to get in at the official site, though it’s worth noting those have been open for six months – meaning you’ve got a lot of competition to get in.
Your main opposing forces in The Division 2 will be split across three factions. The True Sons are a paramilitary force led by a former Joint Task Force officer. The Hyenas are described as “hedonistic scavengers” which answer to a council of pack leaders. The Outcasts are a group of formerly quarantined survivors who want spread their sickness to the world – and do some more hands-on killing, too.
You can get more details on the setting in the new story trailer below.
