Not much longer to wait.


Tom Clancy's The Division

[UPDATE] Ubisoft has now shared new details about what to expect from The Division's beta. Writing on its blog, Ubisoft said the beta will start on Manhattan's Chelsea Pier, taking players through "early story-driven missions that establish your foothold in New York." The beta will also let players try the PvP Dark Zone.

The only way to guarantee yourself access to The Division's beta is to preorder the game. However, Ubisoft announced today that you can sign up for a spot on the waitlist for a chance to get in.

The original story is below.

As suspected, the closed multiplayer beta for The Division will begin later this month, Ubisoft announced today. Xbox One players will get the first stab at it when the beta goes live on Microsoft's console on January 28. The beta will then be made available on PS4 and PC starting on January 29.

The multiplayer beta will run through January 31 across all platforms.

To guarantee yourself a spot in the beta, you need to preorder the game, though it's unclear if there will be any other ways to get in. We'll let you know if any other means of entry become available.

The upcoming Division closed beta follows a technical alpha period held on Xbox One in December.

The Division launches on March 8 for all three platforms. A new trailer was released this week. It's been a long time coming for The Division, as the game was delayed multiple times before ultimately landing at its new March 2016 date.
