‘The Division 2’ Open Beta Starts Today and Gives Unique Rewards

Participate to Earn Rewards

Washington D.C. is now home to rabid killers, but players can jump into The Division 2 and do something about that. Today marks the first day of the open beta in which 3 main missions become available. Also, as far as I’m aware, players can partake in other modes.

Apparently, The Division 2 beta eats up about 46 Gigs on the PS4. As I discovered during the private beta, it works whether you’re playing solo or with a friend. As you team up with more agents, the bosses get tougher—perhaps too tough. When bosses are tough, though, you can expect greater loot. Since enemies litter the streets, there’s always a firefight within walking distance, which means plenty of chances to test your perks. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as if players can test the PvP-oriented Dark Zone just yet. Matchmaking PvP and PvE, however, are viable options.

Per my mention, the open beta will feature 3 main story missions. However, you can also expect a plethora of side missions and encounters. D.C. still plays and feels like a lived-in open world with enemies wandering about. That entails plenty of opportunities to explore and discover secrete chests filled with gear.

Following the private beta, developer Massive Entertainment implemented a new patch, available here. The AI should function massively different, and there will be more skill perks available. More importantly, the game should be less prone to glitches and crashes.

Speaking of which, anyone who participates in The Division 2‘s open beta can expect a few gifts in the full game. To earn the Capitol Hill Arm Patch, players must complete the ‘Invaded’ mission; the supply crate backpack trophy requires completion of the ‘Dark Zone East Introduction’ mission. Other skins will be available just for participating.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 15, 2019. Players have until March 4th to test the beta experience.
