Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Open Beta announced, begins on March 1st

Division 2

While streaming the closed beta on Twitch over the weekend, a Ubisoft employee accidentally revealed that an open beta for The Division 2 will be landing prior to the game's release this March.

The tidbit was mentioned in a livestream for The Division 2, where one of the developers ever so casually refers to an "open beta". This trial period will be available across all of the game's platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You could only get in if you received a code from either pre-ordering the game or specifically signing up, so not everyone was able to join in.

Set seven months on from the first game's NY outbreak, The Division 2 transports you to a "fractured and collapsing" Washington D.C., as humanity faces its biggest crisis in history.

McDonald's adding Donut Sticks to menu - but only for breakfast
Customers can even purchase a half-dozen a small McCafé brewed coffee for a special price at participating restaurants. The donuts come by the half-dozen and dozen, are made fresh throughout the morning, and are never microwaved.

Set seven months after a deadly virus was released in New York City, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will bring players into a fractured and collapsing Washington D.C. The world is on the brink, its people living through the biggest crisis ever faced in human history. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Massive and will be published by Ubisoft.

According to stat tracker Githyp, the private beta only managed a peak of 105,000 viewers, well below The Division 1 beta's 149,000 peak. In the end though, maybe The Division 2 will be the one out of those three that hooks me in the most. This happened with Anthem and it will also happen with The Division 2.
