Ubisoft has released a new trailer focussing on the story for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, along with dates to be a part of the private beta. If you pre-order the game, you’ll be able to take part in the beta starting on February 7th and running until the 10th, which you can register for here. Plus it appears the beta will be available to try out on PC, PS4, and Xbox One instead of just being confined to UPlay. Enjoy the trailer and the official story description as we wait for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 to be released on March 15th, 2019.
Apparently, there is a solo play mode, co-op with a team of up to four players to complete a wide range of activities, plus campaign and adversarial PvP matches to the Dark Zone, very much like the successful formula of the original.
The official story background is here…
Seven months have passed since a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the population. When the virus hit, The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, was activated as the last line of defense. Since then, Division agents have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains. For The Division, the stakes are higher than ever. Washington, DC – the most heavily protected city on earth – is at risk, leaving the entire nation on the brink of collapse. If Washington, DC, is lost, then the nation falls. As a Division agent who has been in the field for seven months, you and your team are the last hope to stop the fall of society after the pandemic collapse.
