Ubisoft is opening the doors to Tom Clancy’s The Division this weekend with an open beta for all platforms the game will be released on. The beta is very small but for the three days the doors are open, anyone with a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or a PC with the needed specifications can download the game to play.
The open beta will take start on Friday the 19th and end on Sunday the 21st however Xbox One users will be given an extra day with the test. For Xbox One users the test will begin on Thursday the 18th. Ubisoft has also helped out players so that they are not left waiting for the game to install on the weekend the test is live, instead players can pre-load Tom Clancy’s The Division starting Tuesday, the 16th of this week. Players will not be left waiting for the game to download on the first day of the test, this is great news for the excited fans especially the ones with a slow download speed.
Players that take part in this test will also receive some special in-game rewards and if they are returning from the closed beta then there are extra rewards for them. Ubisoft has not revealed what this rewards are yet but they did mention there was a new story mission which was not in the closed beta. The rewards given out during this open beta test will also be available for players when Tom Clancy’s The Division is released.
It seems that this test is about checking the systems before the launch and should also be a useful way for Ubisoft to get more feedback from players so they can continue to improve the game. The issues seen in the previous closed beta have been addressed by Ubisoft; the developer stated that the concerns and issues about PC cheats will be resolved before Tom Clancy’s The Division is released.
