The closed beta is still ongoing, and it’s possible that the open beta for The Division could come this month, so all that hype wouldn’t go to waste.
- The Division closed beta lasted until February 2nd
- The open beta is rumored to start on February 16th
- The Division will officially launch on March 8th on Xbox One, PS 4, and PC
It’s easily one of the most anticipated games of the year and, so far, The Division has delivered. The excitement was high and numerous players signed up for the chance to test out the closed beta. Even though it offered a mere slice of the overall map of post-apocalyptic New York, it presented with excellent results. Yes, it does have some flaws, as any beta would, but it seems it has sparked positive opinions.
In fact, in spite of the fact that the closed beta was supposed to last only until February 1st, Ubisoft decided to offer players another day. So, you can still play The Division today, on February 2nd. Why the company decided to extend the duration of the beta is still unknown, but it’s likely to be very cautious. More time means more feedback, and more players will be given a chance to test it out. It’s certainly not the last chance though.
Given a “leak” on a Italian website for upcoming Xbox One events, The Division is clearly displayed with an upcoming open beta from February 16th to February 21st. In tradition, Xbox One gamers will be given one extra day, so it’s likely to start on February 17th for everyone else. However, Ubisoft has not come forward to confirm the rumors. The image does speak for itself, and it has sparked the excitement of the gaming community all over again.
It means that in just two weeks, every player will have the ability to get a glimpse at Tom Clancy’s The Division. There will be more opportunities to test out the game’s mechanics and gameplay Hopefully, it will charm more players into it’s multiplayer mode, along with perhaps a few more bits of the main campaign. So far, those participating in the closed beta got a glimpse at the campaign, the player’s base of operations, a section of the PvP area, character leveling, and looting.
Ubisoft offered a tease into the game, but it’s coming back soon, allegedly and hopefully.
The anticipation has been high around the game since it was first announced, though it has admittedly shown a few areas of weakness. PvP, for one, appeared to not be as popular as Ubisoft wished. Perhaps it’s the real reason why the closed beta extended and why we’re getting the open beta so soon. However, it’s hardly a subject of complaint.
If it all goes smoothly, The Division will officially release on March 8th, 2016, on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
