The Division beta release date revealed for Xbox One, PS4, and PC

You'll just have to wait a few more weeks to access The Division's upcoming closed beta.


Ubisoft delayed the beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division to early 2016, and today, we’re learning it will take place in just a few weeks.

The closed beta will kick off on January 28 exclusively on Xbox One for 24 hours, then PlayStation 4 and PC players can commence to explore Manhattan’s post-apocalyptic streets on January 29. Players will start at Manhattan’s Chelsea Pier where they’ll be taken through early story-driven missions as you team up with other agents to fight for various loot and outwit other agents in the PvP-enabled Dark Zone.

The closed beta will run through January 31 with two ways to access it: sign up for a spot on the waitlist or guaranteed access on the platform of your choice by pre-ordering.

      I really wish the beta would be available longer than that. Its hard for me to get enough time to play in those cases. :(

      oh well, I assume there will be at least one or two more short test periods during February.

      Title of the article is a bit confusing from just reading this. It's just a release date for the BETA right, not the entire game?

          Yea, kinda misleading haha. Also odds on a last minute bump for it? Less than 2 months out and there has been ZERO fanfare aside from E3 about this game it feels like.

            I think its pretty locked in at this point. The marketing machine is spinning up so they probably cant afford to delay it any more unless its because of some catastrophic fuck up that pops up.

            Massive started some community events earlier this week letting certain youtubers and what not come play the game at their offices. They're not officially allowed to talk about it until the 22nd but the veiled responses seem to be pretty positive. Of course this is coming from people who REALLY want the game and have dedicated a lot of time to it already so they could be a bit biased.
