The Division 2 Public Beta: Content Revealed Ahead Of March 1 Start Date

All the content we can expect to find in The Division 2's public beta Ubisoft


The Division 2’s public beta has been detailed by Ubisoft, revealing the content players can expect to find while exploring the virtual streets of Washington D.C.

For those who played in the private beta, the public beta for The Division 2 will look pretty similar. That said, there are a few new additions added, including a new mission and an increased level cap. Other additions, including a new skill and PVP map to play around with, are also added in the public beta.

The three main missions available in the public beta include Grand Washington Hotel, Jefferson Trade Center, and Viewpoint Museum. These are available to play both on Normal and Hard difficulty. Along with these missions, players can also stumble across five side missions to further explore Washington.

Four named zones are available to explore across the city, each with their own level range to indicate difficulty. Those zones include the White House (which doubles as your main base of operations), Downtown East, The Federal Triangle and the Smithsonian area. Expect to stumble into Control Points and other living world activities while running around.

If you want to try out the new PVP in The Division 2, one game mode is available to play on two different maps. Players will be able to give the Skirmish mode, a 4v4 game type, a try on two different maps: Stadium and Capital Ruins.

Public beta players can dive into one of three different Dark Zones on the map as well. The Dark Zone available in the public beta is the one on the east side of the map. Players need to complete the Jefferson Trade Center mission first in order to access the Dark Zone.

Additionally, completing the Jefferson Trade Center mission gives players the opportunity to preview some endgame content. Upon completing the mission, players will have access to one of three different level 30 characters on the player’s account. Each character has different skills and equipment, so try out all three during the beta to find your favorite. Once a character is selected, an endgame mission will begin.

The public beta for The Division 2 is free for all PS4, Xbox One and PC gamers and doesn’t require a pre-order or any other purchase. The beta begins at 4 a.m. EST on March 1 and runs until 4 a.m. EST on March 5.
