The Division 2's open beta trailer gives you a taste of the endgame

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. Accoridng to the Ubisoft, in the beta you'll be able to play three main missions solo or co-op, prove your skills in competitive multiplayer, experience the endgame, and much more. Keep in mind that the open beta ends on March 4 so you'll only have the weekend to make your mark on the District of Columbia.

The trailer for The Division 2's open beta gives you a taste of what to expect during the weekend. Not only can you experience how the adventure starts, but you'll also get a chance to go up against some high-level enemies known as the "Black Tusks." These foes use advanced technology to their advantage so they're quite challenging.

  • I messed around in the private beta but it just made me want to go back to division 1 and work on completing the shields... I wish more of my friends were still playing because levels on legendary are impossible with only 2 players. Can't wait for the full release.
  • I spent some $ and pre-ordered D2 along with Far Cry New Dawn. I played the private beta of D2 and had a good time (I finished the story mode in D1, but realize I still have things to finish in the DLC's) but I dont think I'll be playing the new beta and wait till general release. I dont see the reason for replaying something I'll be playing again after launch. Very much enjoying New Dawn at the moment.....Something to get my mind off Battlefield 5's very slow content updates.
