The Division 2 is Gearing up for You
The private beta for The Division 2 is almost here, and we’ve outlined all the information you need to know in order to participate. Ubisoft has announced that new content will become available later in the demo, so you’ll need to check in past the first day to see everything.
The Division 2 leaves the New York City setting of the first game for a story told in Washington DC. The loot-driven RPG elements and third-person cover-based shooter mechanics from The Division return, but this sequel promises a larger focus on how a player’s choices will impact the in-game world. The popular Dark Zone from the first game has been multiplied into three in The Division 2, and how they work has also changed.
The Division 2 launches on March 15 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The PC version, previously scheduled for Steam, is now releasing on the Epic Games Store instead.
