The Division doesn’t arrive until March 8, but if you’re itching to jump in, you’ll get an early chance to explore Manhattan’s pandemic-ravaged streets starting January 28, when the closed beta goes live. Xbox One owners will get the first crack at the beta, with 24-hour early access, while PS4 and PC players can begin on January 29.
Beginning on Manhattan’s Chelsea Pier, the beta will take you through early story-driven missions that establish your foothold in New York. You’ll team up with other agents to battle for loot and outwit other agents in the PvP-enabled Dark Zone. The closed beta runs through January 31; you can sign up for a spot on the waitlist, or get guaranteed access on the platform of your choice by pre-ordering The Division.
