The much anticipated beta for “Tom Clancy’s The Division” will soon be available. However, as early as now, it is already available for pre load on Xbox One.
According to Gamepur, the total file size for the beta is 25.82 GB for the Xbox One, but it can’t be played until Jan. 28.
Xbox players get a one day head start over players using PlayStation 4 and PC since this is part of an exclusive deal with Microsoft for those who pre-ordered the game.
Meanwhile, the size for the PC Beta is slightly bigger at 26.25 GB according to early reports.
According to Ubisoft’s official blog, the beta will run from Jan. 28 (for Xbox One) and Jan. 29 (for PlayStation 4 and PC) until Jan. 31.
In order to participate, players who have not pre-ordered the game could also join a waiting list on the official website.
“Our goal with ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ is nothing short of completely changing the way people play online RPGs. With the power of next-gen consoles behind it, The Division puts players in the middle of breathtaking, persistent multiplayer thriller in which they will explore, fight and work together as modern society collapses around you, all with the authenticity for which Tom Clancy games are renowned,” Fredrik Rundqvist, executive producer of Ubisoft said.
The game’s story will revolve around a pandemic that befalls New York and devastates the city. As basic services collapse, panic grips the people leading to a breakdown in society. The Division, a group of self-supported tactical agents, is tasked to operate to save what remains of society as a last resort, according to the game’s official synopsis.
After several delays, the game is set for release on March 8 across platforms.
