UPDATE (January 20, 2016) – The Division Beta is scheduled on January 28, 2016 (Xbox One), and January 29., 2016 (PC and PlayStation 4). It ends on January 31st on all platforms.

After its successful Alpha for Xbox One players last December, The Division Beta is set to happen sometime in early 2016. The beta will be available to all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One), according to an announcement posted on the game’s beta page.

Ubisoft has enumerated two ways for you to join the closed beta:

Pre-order The Division 

You can get 100% secured access to The Division Beta when you pre-order the game from a participating retailer. Depending on the retailer where you pre-ordered the game from, your beta code will be sent to you either via email, a printed card (if you pre-ordered the physical CD of the game), or through a retail receipt.

If you pre-order the game from the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store, or Steam, you won’t need an access code to join the beta as you will automatically be granted access to it.

Sign-up for the Waiting List

You also have the option to sign-up to The Division Beta waiting list, however this does not guarantee you 100% access to the beta. You can sign-up for the waiting list on different platforms.

So what’s in it for you if you decide to join the closed beta? As with all beta tests, the game’s developers will take this time to gather players’ feedback and test the game for bugs and other issues before the game is officially released. And as a form of thanks, you may be eligible to receive special rewards in-game which you can unlock once the game is released. More details will be revealed about this at a later date, according to Ubisoft.
