Shack Stream: The Division 2 and Trials Rising betas

Ubisoft has a pair of fresh betas to gobble up and the Shacknews Stream Team is up for the task.

As we near the end of February, the folks over at Ubisoft have decided that the world is ready for a wad of pre-launch betas for a couple of its biggest franchises. Beginning today, a PC-only technical test for The Division 2 launches, as well as the Open Beta for Trials Rising, the latest motorcycle stunt race spectacular from the folks at RedLynx.

The Division 2 has had a few closed alpha and beta sessions prior to this week, gathering data, testing server loads, and implementing fixes ahead of the game’s launch later this spring. The development team at Ubisoft Massive is looking to test out some of the fixes incorporated from feedback obtained from the most recent closed beta from earlier this month. Expect a glimpse of early-game action and a small preview of the loot and builds available from the full game.

Trials Rising continues one of the most fun franchises that Ubisoft has to offer. Originally a simple side-scrolling time trial game, the team at RedLynx has expanded the complexity of the scope of the game over its various incarnations throughout the last decade. All of their work culminates in Trials Rising and this week offers the world a chance to go hands on.

The Ubisoft streaming extravaganza begins today at 4:00 PM EST (1:00 PM PST) on the Official Shacknews Twitch Channel.

      well pretty much did all the content in the beta.

      It's definitely more trials that's for sure. I never really liked fusion all that much other than some incredible fan made levels.
