One of the most hotly anticipated games of 2016 is giving gamers plenty of chances to try it out. The Division open beta starts this weekend, and is currently available to pre-load. Gamers can jump in first on Xbox One on February 18th, PS4 and PC players following the next day, the beta running through February 21st.

Ubisoft is making a lot of changes between the closed beta a couple weeks ago and the coming test. Not only will a new mission be included, called Subway Morgue, numerous updates have been made to the game’s PvPvE area, The Dark Zone. Loot will spawn less frequently, enemies will be harder to kill, and there will be more enemies overall.

After playing the closed beta, we thought the game showed a lot of potential, especially in the environmental storytelling and co-op play. Check out our full impressions here.

While progress will not carry over, anyone that participates in the game’s open beta will receive a special in-game reward when The Division launches on PS4, PC, and Xbox One March 8th.
