Earlier this month Ubisoft revealed the release date for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Private Beta, but no details about what it would contain. Well, with the beta just a week away, Ubisoft has provided more info – it will feature two main story missions, one Dark Zone, a variety of side missions and other open world content, and yes, a taste of the end game. Pretty generous! Check out a description of some of the beta content below.
Two main missions are available—Grand Washington Hotel and Jefferson Trade Center—to offer a smaller piece of a much larger, compelling narrative we are telling from start to finish. You can access these missions from Odessa Sawyer and Dyani Kelso, respectively. As you explore D.C., five optional side missions will also be available for everyone who prefers to branch out from the main storyline:
- Empire Autumn Hotel
- MLK Library Hostages
- National Archives
- Mustang Court Rescue
- Bureau Headquarters
You will explore parts of seven named zones, each possessing a specific level range to indicate difficulty as you traverse the world:
- The White House (also serving as your Base of Operations in D.C.)
- Downtown East
- The Federal Triangle
- The Smithsonian
- Final Epiphany
- The 1040
- Dark Zone East -- the largest of all three Dark Zones, players utilize long sightlines in over-grown governmental parks. You will acquire the DZ East introduction mission from Senait Ezera—the new Dark Zone NPC in the Base of Operations—after completing Jefferson Trade Center. Completing this intro-mission unlocks full access to the Dark Zone and its features.
And here’s some details about the end game content, which unlocks slightly later than the rest of the beta.
The Private Beta will also feature a portion of The Division 2's end game! After completing Jefferson Trade Center for the first time, you will gain access to an end-game mission that unlocks three level 30 characters on your account. Upon logging in with one of these characters, the end game mission will begin. Each character is equipped with a different Specialization, so feel free to find your favorite!
Players will be limited to a single, randomized character for the majority of the beta, which will be capped at level 7. The beta kicks off on February 7 at 1 am PT, and the end game content will be available on February 8 at 8 am PT. Here’s a handy start time guide for those living in different places in the world.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 15, 2019. The private beta is available to all those who pre-order the game. Free registration was also available for a time, but is no longer available.
