The Division 2 launches March 15, 2019, but you can get your hands on it sooner if you pre-order. Pre-ordering any version of the game will grant you access to the private beta. Alternatively, sign up for The Division 2 Beta on the game's website for a chance to win access to The Division 2 beta.

The beta starts on February 7th and ends on the 11th, but Ubisoft has yet to release more information. We don't yet know what content will be available or whether participating in the beta will grant you any bonuses in the final game. The beta will be available simultaneously for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One users.

The first game's beta granted players limited access to the Dark Zone - an area where players can earn powerful gear and fight each other if they wish - so don't be surprised if we see something similar again. Ubisoft has said they will release more details before the start of the beta.

To celebrate the announcement of The Division 2 beta starting date, Ubisoft has released a story trailer for The Division 2. 

Check out the new story trailer - which sets up the conflict you'll be engaging in - below.

The trailer shows that humanity has seemingly conquered the virus that devastated the United States in The Division. The titular Division agents have been moved to gorgeous-looking Washington DC, where civil war is brewing. Humanity - divided into three warring factions: "packs of Hyenas", "religious outcasts", and "depraved fascists" - is tearing itself apart following the devastation of the first game.

The trailer also shows off some of the new equipment you'll be able to get your hands on, including a sweet crossbow and a fun-looking seeker grenade thing that fires crosses at its enemies.

The Division 2 is set to release March 15, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Pre-order or sign up to get your hands on The Division 2 beta February 7-11.
