The Division 2 will be having an open beta. And Ubisoft's upcoming shared world shooter now had the private beta for those who pre-ordered for it last week. But now it seems that The Division 2 will also be getting the beta for all. However, the Division 2 open beta release date was not revealed, but its safe to say it would take place soon given that the game will be out on March 15. Oddly, Ubisoft didn't reveal it in the traditional sense, But its developers casually mentioned it's existence during the live stream this weekend following the barrage of issues surrounding the game.

The Reddit user TiniestBuckle captured a clip from it's live stream that has The Division 2 developers saying "we're going to fix that for the open beta" when talking about the issue currently in the game. But this shouldn't come as a surprise considering The Division 1 had private and open betas. moreover, given the less than warm reception The Division 2's beta has had, allowing would be buyers chance to check out the game before its launch and it could help Ubisoft prop up its pre-order numbers. Considering the amount of work done to improve the first game's biggest painpoint, its endgame.

But base on Ubisoft Associate Creative Director Chadi El-Zibaoui‏, The Division 2 endgame is an "extension" to the campaign.

"First thing is, that they have a huge endgame offering and it's not just PvP [player versus player]," he said in conversation with Trianerstech. "The endgame is going to open the extension to the campaign and there is a narrative twist, with Black Tusks invading the Washington DC, but there are a lot of narrative reveals around that. This cater to players who need more narrative content, and play more solo or PvE [player versus enemy]."

However, In addition to this, El-Zibaoui revealed that this would tie-in with Division 2's Dark Zones and even areas where players can take on others for it's best loot. Though the game has three Dark Zones. The Two of them will feature normalization, which gives advanced and also newbie players the same damage output for their weapons. And the third Dark Zone however, won't have normalization and it would be invited by the game's Black Tusks faction.

"If you have AR rifle, the base stats will be the same for the beginners and those who have more advanced stats," he add.

" But to cater the hardcore players who don't want normalization, each week they will have one of the three Dark Zones invaded by Black Tusks, and this has old rules from the first game with no normalization. But they are trying to have pieces of content for everyone, rather than funnel everyone into the same content. However, we have a full year of post-launch content with the three major episodes, and all these episodes that is extends on the narrative, and the map, For now you have new areas to explore, and also game modes. We only cater to those who need more story, more areas, and new PvP."

But our time with Division 2 beta showed off some fantastic looking albeit somewhat uneven opening hours of play. It will be interesting to see how Division 2 endgame plays out in practice given El-Zibaoui's comments.
