Division fans rejoice! We’re only a few days away from being able to partake in the upcoming Tom Clancy’s The Division Open Beta. You’ll be able to temporarily begin your journey in a once bustling city rendered helpless by a dangerous pandemic. Whether you choose to take on New York City as a lone wolf or with a group of friends is up to you. The fight to take back the city and attempt to restore it to what it once was begins here.
Participants in the Open Beta will be able to cap out their agent at level 8 when outside of a Dark Zone. Players will be restricted to a level cap of 12 when inside of a Dark Zone, which has a different ranking system from normal zones. The Dark Zone is an area of the map where PvP is enabled, which is without a doubt a place many gamers will flock to right off the bat. The city is full of loot for the taking, just remember that you won’t be the only one after it. If you want to survive in the Open Beta, it’s best you gather a team of players and learn to work in together. Combine your in-game abilities and skills to lead each other to victory. Inside of the Dark Zone things can go from peachy to sour in a second, without a team to communicate with you might not last very long.
The Open Beta will feature a brand new mission not featured in the Closed Beta, along with some new changes being made to the map itself. The new mission is titled Subway Morgue, and will focus on a “local power outage has been traced to Subway Morgue generators.” The goal of the mission is to locate and recover the missing JTF Engineer Paul Rhodes so you can give him a hand with restoring the power, along with returning him to your Base of Operation so he can open up your Tech Wing. Players who complete the mission will be rewarded with 800 Tech Wing Supplies, 470 Credits, and a few bonus items to boot.
