The Division 2's 'Private Beta' features early missions and secret endgame content

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.

Today, Ubisoft revealed more about the "Private Beta" coming to Xbox One and other platforms next month. Early parts of the game and endgame missions will be available during the test. The Private Beta runs from February 7 to February 11, 2019. The download is expected to be quite substantial so players can download the Private Beta from February 6. The only way to guarantee access is to preorder The Division 2.

After establishing their Base of Operations in the White House, Agents will venture out into a transformed Washington, unlocking new skills and abilities while they upgrade to a level cap of seven and discover the eastern part of the open world featuring. The following content is part of the beta experience.

  • Two main missions.
  • Five side missions and additional activities in the open world.
  • Unique player vs. player vs. enemy gameplay in one of the three new Dark Zones.
  • Organized player vs. player gameplay in Skirmish.

Ubisoft added that, beginning February 8, The Division 2 fans will have the opportunity to have a first hands-on with endgame content with one Invaded mission. Players will experience gameplay at the level cap of 30 and unlock brand new Survivalist, Sharpshooter or Demolitionist specializations.

Are you excited for the Private Beta? Let us know. Recently, Ubisoft announced that it will exclusively release its games on the Epic Games Store going forward. Many consider this to be a major blow to Steam because "AAA" experiences generate a lot of revenue, much more than the sales of a lot of smaller games combined. However, Epic Games takes a smaller cut so the choice seemed like an easy decision.
