The Divsion 2 has been confirmed for a private beta for folks who pre-ordered the game.
A new story trailer has also been released for the upcoming game from Ubisoft. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be rolling out on March 15, and the private beta will run from February 7-10. The game will take place in Washington, DC after the epidemic has hit. Hard.
The trailer shows off some gameplay footage that was also presented during the Microsoft E3 2018 show. The content in the story trailer follows up on earlier content and provides a basic plot for the game. Players will face three enemy factions, which you can find out more at the end of this article (with the story trailer).
The Divsion 2 will have new specializations, an improved UI for loadouts, settlements, looting, gameplay enhancements, and even 8-player raids. And this is just the beginning.
The story trailer was released at the same time the private beta would take place, so fans have a lot to look forward to. Ultimate or Gold editions of the game for PS4, Xbox One, or PC through the Epic Games Store will grant you access to the beta. However, if you bought from other stores like Steam, your access will still be honored. You can also get it directly from Ubisoft via UPlay.
For those who didn’t pre-order, you can still have a chance to get into the private beta for The Division 2 if you sign up quickly.
Here’s a rundown of the enemy factions in The Division 2 (via Ubisoft):
The Division 2 Enemy Factions
- A paramilitary force that relies on combat expertise and overwhelming firepower to dominate their enemies and expand their territory. Smart and organised, the True Sons are led by a former JTF officer whose ruthlessness and cunning make him a dangerous adversary.
- A loosely organised gang of opportunistic raiders that prey on struggling civilian encampments through violence and intimidation. These hedonistic scavengers take everything they can steal and destroy everything else to deprive their enemies of valuable resources. The Hyenas are led by a council of the strongest pack leaders.
- Bitter survivors of a forced quarantine bent on revenge against those who brutally imprisoned them and the society that stood by and let it happen. Their charismatic, bloodthirsty leader believes everyone is complicit and urges her followers to punish the guilty by spreading sickness and murdering indiscriminately.
And here’s the new trailer:
Freelance journalist and part-time gamer.
I specialize in indie games as I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. I’m just your typical consumer who has some opinions to share. I’ve been reviewing games since I was 12. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist. Then I went to online VoDs, which I’ve lost interest in.
And now I’m here to deliver my thoughts in written format!
