If you’re one of the millions of players hyped and ready to play The Division, you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer.
Pushing back the Beta testing phase just a bit longer, Ubisoft and their development studio Massive Entertainment have decided that they aren’t quite ready for the public eye. Adding on a month or so to the early part of 2016, no platform will be allowed to play in the Beta test just yet.
If you’re an Xbox fan however, Xbox One will have access to an Alpha test scheduled this month. This allows Xbox One users some compensation for their promised “first look” at The Division and it’s amazing Snowdrop Engine. While we should still assume that the Xbox One will also continue to the be first platform to play in Beta testing, no word has come from Ubisoft as to whether things will change as the test push closer into the launch date.
Alpha testers will be playing The Division this week, starting December 9th at 4 AM [EST] until December 12th, at 3 AM. During this test, this will be the first time that users experience game play outside of the “Dark Zone” PVP space. We’ve had a hands-on with this PVP space previously, and with clean game play throughout, it will be interesting to test and have a look at Alpha footage showcasing AI interactions.
Players in the Closed Alpha test will be subject to a non-disclosure agreement, so Twitch streams are not allowed – nor is discussion on the title in public forums. We’ll get back to you with any further details on The Division as soon as the NDA lifts, so keep it locked right here to PowerLeveled.com.
