'Tom Clancy's The Division' news: Ubisoft rolling out beta tests after alpha closed trials


In light of the upcoming release of “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” Ubisoft is reportedly rolling out a series of closed beta tests for people who will pre-order it.

The French video game developer has already conducted a series of alpha tests for Xbox One owners who also pre-ordered “Tom Clancy’s The Division” from Dec. 9 until Dec 12. These Xbox One users were able to see firsthand what the game will offer given that Ubisoft also released the plot of the game.

It reads, “New York is in trouble. A devastating epidemic sweeps through the city and in the wake of the disease basic services fail one by one. Without food and water, the streets are in chaos and new factions rise to profit from the mayhem. Amid the chaos, a classified unit of self-supported sleeper agents known as The Division is activated and tasked with one mission: take back New York. Fighting to piece the city back together one block at a time, the agents of The Division will combat the chaos driving New York to the brink and be face not only the effects of the deadly virus, but the rising threat of those who unleashed it. New York is in trouble. And it’s up to you to save the city.”

As for the beta test, the supposed trial will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions of the game and will have the access available on an unspecified date yet in early 2016. This gives Ubisoft roughly two months before the game fully drops on March 8.

In a separate article posted by Lawyer Herald, it was reported that the company’s alpha test gave the feedbacks to make the necessary adjustments in the gameplay. Associate creative director of “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” Julian Gerighty, expressed his confidence in the game saying that the one of the factors that will make it standout is the open world experience accompanied by a narrative which will ultimately come into a conclusion at some point.
