Xbox One players get first access.
Ubisoft confirmed the dates for the upcoming beta for open-world, apocalyptic multiplayer shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division on Twitter today. Xbox One owners have a one day head start, kicking off the beta on January 28. One day later, PlayStation 4 and PC players will be able to jump in as well, with the beta closing for everyone on January 31.
Players who pre-order the game have guaranteed beta access, otherwise you can request a code and join the waitlist through the official website.
A post on Ubiblog says that the beta will open on Manhattan’s Chelsea Pier, covering the “early story-driven missions that establish your foothold in New York.” You’ll also team up with others “to battle for loot and outwit other agents in the PvP-enabled Dark Zone.”

A new trailer was released a few days ago, showing off more of the game’s open world New York, including the base of operations, safe zones, missions, skills, and upgrades.
The Division is set to release on March 8, 2016, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
