Ubisoft has officially revealed that the closed beta for the highly-anticipated title, Tom Clancy’s The Division, will go live on the 28th of this month. The role-playing game, set in post-apocalyptic New York City, revolves around the cataclysmic effects of an epidemic that spread through the city, leaving traces of barely anything but incessant turmoil in its way. Your job is to cooperate with your allies (a.k.a. your division agents), scout the chaotic NYC for sources of the contagion, and restore the City That Never Sleeps to its former lively condition.
The closed beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division is set to begin on January 28th, 2016
According to Ubisoft’s announcement, the closed beta will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC up until January 31st. However, all of those who own an Xbox One will be slightly luckier, given a 24-hour head start – gaining access a day earlier than PlayStation 4 and PC gamers, who will be able to experience the beta on the 29th of January. The beta will include missions set in Chelsea Piers, Manhattan, as well as PvP Dark Zone missions – where you get to play against other ally groups and loot all their gear and goodies.
