The Division 2 Private Beta Starts In February, New Trailer Shows The Story Setup


The Division 2, Ubisoft’s cover-shooter RPG, is coming out really soon. Though we don’t get much of a look from it gameplay-wise so far aside from that E3 reveal.

At least we now know that the game will have a beta, a private beta. Unfortunately, it’s one of those “pre-order to access early beta”. It will commence from February 7th to 11th.

Meanwhile, the new story trailer sets up the events that lead to the new setting. The game sets off right after the first, where the Division agents (the players) have taken control of New York after a virus outbreak went widespread, collapsing the US into chaos. Now The Division is going to Washington D.C. to take back control from the many crazy factions spawn in this post-virus outbreak world.

Have a look here:

The Division 2 will see a focus on the endgame, with end-game specialisation classes and raids being added, alongside new weapons, gear and abilities. The Dark Zone, where rare loot can be gained and PVP can happen, is also returning.

The Division 2 will be out on PS4, PC (Epic Games Store, Uplay), and Xbox One March 15th.
