    Welcome to The Division 2 Open Beta



    If you did not get the chance to participate in our Private Beta phase, now is your chance! Available from March 1 – 4 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, we want to welcome you as you take your first steps into Washington, D.C. The beta introduces you to some of the unique features The Division 2 has to offer—main missions, side missions, open world activities, and one of the three Dark Zones—to name a few.



    For everyone who has already participated in the Private Beta, here are the additional content highlights for the Open Beta:

    • Character level cap increase to level 8
    • An additional Story mission—Viewpoint Museum
    • An additional Skill—Chem Launcher with two variants, Riot Foam and Explosive Vapor
    • Two additional Settlement Projects with the second upgrade of the Theater
    • An additional Skirmish PVP map—Capitol Ruins

    You are limited to one character during the testing phase, and this character can be deleted. At character creation, you are able to cycle through presets of customization features to randomize your Agent. Remember that character progression is capped at level eight during this period.

    Three main missions are available on Normal and Hard modes—Grand Washington Hotel, Jefferson Trade Center, and Viewpoint Museum—to offer a smaller piece of a much larger, compelling narrative we are telling from start to finish.

    As you explore D.C., five optional Side Missions will also be available for everyone who prefer to branch out from the main storyline.

    You will explore parts of four named zones, each possessing a specific level range to indicate difficulty as you traverse the world:

    • The White House—also serving as your Base of Operations in D.C.
    • Downtown East
    • The Federal Triangle
    • The Manning Institute

    In addition, a variety of Control Points and living world activities await in the Open Beta.



    DARK ZONE
    Dark Zone East—available on the right side of D.C., players utilize long sightlines in over-grown governmental parks. You will acquire the DZ East introduction mission from Senait Ezera—the new Dark Zone NPC in the Base of Operations—after completing Jefferson Trade Center. Completing this intro-mission unlocks full access to the Dark Zone and its features.

    ORGANIZED PVP
    For players who are looking for dedicated 4v4 PVP, Conflict is available during the beta test. One mode, Skirmish, will be accessible on two maps: Stadium and Capitol Ruins. We encourage everyone to jump in and provide feedback on the PVP experience!

    END GAME
    We are excited to announce that the Open Beta will also feature a portion of The Division 2's end game! After completing Jefferson Trade Center for the first time, you will gain access to an end-game mission that unlocks three level 30 characters on your account. Upon logging in with one of these characters, the end game mission will begin. Each character is equipped with a different Specialization, so feel free to find your favorite! In contrast with the Private Beta, this end game mission will be available with the start of the Open Beta.

    With all that being said, we have a few closing reminders!

    • This beta phase is not under an NDA, so we encourage everyone to capture and share their experiences with the community using Photo Mode!
    • This version of the game is not final and elements are subject to change.

    Remember to leave us your feedback on the Official Forums or the community Reddit. You can also tweet us using the hashtag #AskTheDivision2 to help us gather community questions. A big thank you to everyone jumping into the test!

    I know that for me I had to go to the Uplay Launcher and click the "Welcome to Open Beta" banner in news and it gave me a link to click that that "Activated" Open Beta Status and then my client updated the Technical test to Open beta. I haven't had to download anything yet, it shows the play button and it says "Pre-Loaded" and its grayed out a bit.

    Cheers,

    Streaming Rules

    Hey guys!

    I am a Twitch Streamer and I wanted to show your game in my stream as I want to offer my impressions live to my audience, so I was wondering if you could share the rules in terms or embargo or rules to show your game off in either videos or live broadcasts. I want to share offer live impressions and a change for my community to ask questions and I can get back here and we can do a back and forth.

    Just started Division 1 and really liking it so I look forward to play the Open Beta. Look forward to an answer.

    Thanks
