Updated March 1, 2019: The Division 2 open beta is now live on Xbox One and PC.
One of Ubisoft's most-anticipated new titles is The Division 2, the sequel to the popular first game that launched back in 2016. The Division 2 is a third-person military shooter which tasks you with stopping malicious forces from seizing control of the government in the District of Columbia. It's unclear how the rest of the country is affected at this point, but we should find out soon enough.
The Division 2's open beta starts on March 1, but there's a lot more on the horizon. Today, Ubisoft detailed what plays can expect in the "Dark Zone," the game's free-for-all competitive arena. Everyone can experience the Dark Zone for free in the open beta until March 4 and receive an exclusive backpack trophy at launch.
The open beta is already available for pre-load so you can download it right now through the Microsoft Store. The download is 45 GB so you'll want to get it installed early.
The Division 2 will receive a lot of free updates in 2019 and if you own the Year 1 Pass, you can play them a few days early. The Year 1 Pass is included in the Gold Edition and Ultimate Edition, but you can also purchase it for $40. The pass grants early access to all additional content, instant access to new Specilizations, more Classified Assignments to reveal more about the city, and some cosmetic items that should help you stand out.
