Tom Clancy's The Division

If you have pre-ordered Ubisoft's long-awaited action-RPG Tom Clancy's The Division for the Xbox One, you might be able to play in a special closed alpha test for the game. The alpha test will take place from December 9-12, and is exclusive to owners of Microsoft's console.

Ubisoft stated that codes for the closed alpha test will be sent out starting today. It added:

"This exclusive Xbox One alpha testing phase in December will be the first time the public gets to play a version of The Division that includes more than the Dark Zone PvP enabled areas. This means the moment you and other players sign into the game, you'll be giving us valuable insight into how our infrastructure performs under pressure that we can't replicate internally or at a tradeshow. This process allows us to monitor and gather additional feedback on other aspects of The Division, as well. However, due to the early stage of this alpha, we ask that all participants do not share images, video, or descriptions of the game's content outside of the official Division alpha forum. Players will be prompted to accept a non-disclosure agreement before playing the alpha."

Plans for a closed beta test for The Division have now been postponed until sometime in early 2016, but it will be available for PC and PlayStation 4 games in addition to the Xbox One. The game is scheduled for release on March 8.
