The Division open beta is almost here, launching on Xbox One on the 18th of February and a day later on PS4 and PC. It brings a host of fixes to the open world action RPG as well as a major new playable mission which will unlock the tech section of your home base.
The open beta doesn't arrive for a little while yet but you can make sure you're ready for action by downloading the game files right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Ubisoft has been pretty clever about this too - if you were in the closed beta you'll only have to grab around 1 gig of extra data with the new content. If you didn't get into that earlier version of the game or are playing on a different platform, you will have to download it all again with the files running around 27 gigs.
Our early impressions of The Division were positive, there's a lot to do in this post apcalyptic New York including plenty of story content and pretty meaty gunplay. But Ubisoft hasn't done a great job of educating players as to what the game is really about just yet, most seem to think it's some kind of MMO when it's actually more of an action RPG and one that's perfectly possible to play solo. This open beta will help to change all that and will also give the company time to test their servers at capacity.
The Division comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC from the 8th of March 2016.
