Ubisoft held a closed beta for Tom Clancy's The Division last month, living up to its promise of exclusively offering access to Xbox One gamers - albeit for just one day, before those on PC and PlayStation 4 were able to get in on the action. Originally slated to a last a total of four days, the beta was later extended by 24 hours before eventually coming to an end at the beginning of the month.
But if you missed out on the chance to take part in the closed beta, the good news is that you'll have the opportunity to enjoy the upcoming open beta, which begins next week.
Once again, Xbox One gamers will go first with 24 hours of exclusive access, starting on February 18, before PS4 and PC gamers can join in the beta on the following day, before the whole thing ends on February 21.
As Ubisoft explained today [emphasis ours]:
You will be able to experience Tom Clancy’s The Division one last time before launch in an Open Beta starting February 18. Everyone will be able to play for free and without any restrictions...
Added to the content already seen in the Closed Beta, the Open Beta will include an all new story mission for players to explore in their pursuit to take back New York. As a thank you, everyone who participates will be rewarded with a special in-game reward which will unlock for players when the full game is released.
Tom Clancy's The Division is scheduled to be released on March 8, 2016.
