The gaming scene has been very active these past few weeks as hype continues to grow for Ubisoft's latest game, The Division. This is due to the fact that not only is the release date for the game slowly creeping upon us, but we were also treated to another closed beta for the game before release. The closed beta was scheduled to run from Thursday to Monday for the Xbox One, and Friday through Monday for the PC and PS4, but it was extended for an extra 24 hours due to popular demand.
On that note, many players are still waiting to get into the beta even as we speak. With time slowly running out and players waiting to get into the beta growing more anxious, the following news may allow you to breathe a bit easier. An image was posted on Xbox Italy's Facebook page which gave us a rough outline of what to expect on Xbox for the month of February. Something that they ended up leaking, however, was the fact that Ubisoft are planning an additional beta for The Division, but this time, it's set to be an open beta, meaning anybody can drop in and play.
None of this has been confirmed by any party as of now, but the context and source make it appear as if this is something that is already set in stone. The image also claimed that Xbox One players would gain access to the open beta one full day before PS4 and PC players, which was also the case for the current closed beta. If all of this is true, then the open beta will run from February 16th to the 21st for the Xbox One and from the 17th to 21st for players on PC or PS4.
As hype continues to grow for this game, there's not doubt that this open beta will only help the game out in terms of sales. If you're interested in purchasing the game, then you will be able to do so once it hits shelves on March 8th, 2016. What do you think? Are you excited for this game? Will you hop into the open beta if it's real? Leave your thoughts below!
