Ubisoft has just announced that Tom Clancy?s The Division beta is extended by 24 hours due to unprecedented demand from fans. The upcoming online multiplayer shooter?s beta extension will allow access for people who pre-registered during the weekend.
Tom Clancy?s The Division is one of the highly anticipated games of 2016. Game developer and publisher Ubisoft already hosted an alpha gameplay for select Xbox One users last year. At that time, the company didn?t organize any event for fans on PlayStation and PC, but they promised to bring the beta session in January. Recently, it was reported that The Division?s beta started on Jan. 28 for Xbox One players and Jan. 29 for PlayStation 4 and PC players.
The Division beta was expected to end on Feb. 1, but according to a recent announcement by Ubisoft on the company?s website, the servers will remain open until Tuesday, Feb. 2, at 6 am EST. Ubisoft is now inviting as many people as possible to access the game. Those who pre-ordered and were guaranteed The Division beta access have started to get invitations from the company.
Ubisoft is now is prioritizing the players on first come, first serve basis. It means that those who signed up first will be receiving The Division beta gameplay invitation earlier while those who didn?t pre-order are only waitlisted.
With Tom Clancy?s The Division beta extended for 24 hours, many waitlisted players who didn?t have guaranteed beta access will also be able to play the game. However, those who haven?t registered and are planning to join at the last minute are not likely to grab the opportunity.
Players who have beta access can expect to see a small part of the map playable in Tom Clancy?s The Division, in which they will be exploring post-apocalyptic New York streets. The Division will be released on March 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
