A couple weeks ago, Ubisoft released a story trailer, alongside the scheduled private beta sessions for The Division 2. Now the studio wants fans to know what to expect going into the beta.
Ubisoft didn’t hold back with the private beta content, and is giving people a good amount of content to sink their teeth into. The private beta will offer players two main missions, Grand Washington Hotel and Jefferson Trade Center, five side missions, various control points and activities. Not only that, seven named zones of The Division 2 will be partially available for players to explore freely, including Dark Zone East, “the largest of all three Dark Zones.” Finally, and to the surprise of others, Ubisoft will give players a taste of the end-game through an end-game mission, unlocking three level 30 characters on your account.
Two main missions are available—Grand Washington Hotel and Jefferson Trade Center—to offer a smaller piece of a much larger, compelling narrative we are telling from start to finish. You can access these missions from Odessa Sawyer and Dyani Kelso, respectively. As you explore D.C., five optional side missions will also be available for everyone who prefers to branch out from the main storyline:
- Empire Autumn Hotel
- MLK Library Hostages
- National Archives
- Mustang Court Rescue
- Bureau Headquarters
You will explore parts of seven named zones, each possessing a specific level range to indicate difficulty as you traverse the world:
- The White House (also serving as your Base of Operations in D.C.)
- Downtown East
- The Federal Triangle
- The Smithsonian
- Final Epiphany
- The 1040
- Dark Zone East — the largest of all three Dark Zones, players utilize long sightlines in over-grown governmental parks. You will acquire the DZ East introduction mission from Senait Ezera—the new Dark Zone NPC in the Base of Operations—after completing Jefferson Trade Center. Completing this intro-mission unlocks full access to the Dark Zone and its features.
The Private Beta will also feature a portion of The Division 2’s end game! After completing Jefferson Trade Center for the first time, you will gain access to an end-game mission that unlocks three level 30 characters on your account. Upon logging in with one of these characters, the end game mission will begin. Each character is equipped with a different Specialization, so feel free to find your favorite!
