Now that the private beta for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is over, Ubisoft has officially announced dates for the open beta, which will kick off in March. The company is actually cutting the beta pretty close to the chest as it will kick off on March 1st and run until March 4th, covering PC, PS4, and Xbox One, giving little time for any adjustments to take place before the release on March 15th. By all accounts, it's going to be everything the private beta was this past week, with some mild improvements taken from the notes they gathered. We wish all of you getting into the beta luck in a few weeks, but until then, here's some info on the storyline.
Set seven months after a deadly virus was released in New York City, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will bring players into a fractured and collapsing Washington D.C. The world is on the brink, its people living through the biggest crisis ever faced in human history. As veteran Division agents, players are the last hope against the complete fall of society as enemy factions vie for control of the city. If Washington D.C. is lost, the entire nation falls. Building upon more than two years of listening to and learnings from The Division community, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will offer a substantial campaign that organically flows into a robust endgame, to create a cohesive and meaningful experience for all types of players.
