The Division’s open beta to begin on Feb 18 for Xbox One, Feb 19. for PC and PS4

Runs until February 21

Hot on the heels of the short closed test a couple of weeks ago, Ubisoft has announced when everyone will be able to get their hands on The Divison’s open beta.

For Xbox One players, the open beta will begin on February 18. PS4 and PC players will, unfortunately, have to wait an extra day for theirs, with it starting on February 19 instead. The beta will then close on February 21, so you won’t have exactly long to give it a try.

The open beta will include a new mission that wasn’t in the closed one, and taking part in it will also unlock an ‘exclusive reward’ in the full release of the game on March 8.

To celebrate this announcement, Ubisoft has released a new trailer showing off the various factions you’ll meet in post-apocalyptic New York, which you can watch up top. They’re all very angry looking, so you might want to shoot them in the face if you get the chance.
