With Tom Clancy’s The Division Beta right around the corner, the game’s publisher Ubisoft has announced (via Videogamer) that the beta will be available for pre-load up to 48 hours before the open world 3rd person shooter launches next week.
There is no word yet on which platforms the pre-load will be available for, but hopefully it will encompass all three systems, Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The file size for the PC version of the beta is estimated to be around 26GB.
The Division’s beta dates are January 28th for Xbox One users and January 29th for PS4 and PC users. The beta ends on January 31st. It’s a closed beta and only players who pre-order the game are guaranteed access to it, but players can sign up on the game’s page to be put on a wait list. Free DLC is already available for the upcoming game, and an Xbox One bundle has been announced, but the game won’t feature Brooklyn or player-trading at launch.
Tom Clancy’s The Division launches March 8, 2016 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
