On PC, the Division 2 beta install size comes in at a whopping 43.5 GB, so you'll need to have at least that much free.
Firstly, the development team is aware that some players are bound to encounter a problem where the game shuts down after "an extended play session". Ubisoft says in a blog post that players should restart the client "every two to three hours" to avoid this.
'Secondly, on all platforms, if you are outside the game and receive a game invite from a friend within the game, your client will crash at launch. All professional gamers and hobbyist players have a super supersizing chance to be the part of the testing event in the Private Beta Demo for The Division 2. Will you be joining your friends in the Dark Zone? "At character creation, you are able to cycle through presets of customization features to randomize your Agent".
The Division 2 Private Beta starts on February 7 4AM Easter Standard Time i.e at the time of writing the servers for the game are up so you can start playing right now.
Two main story missions which are available in both Normal and Hard difficulty modes.
Although the main goal of the beta is to find and eliminate bugs, it also gives players a taste of what's to come.
Additionally, one slice of endgame content is included in the beta: an Invaded mission will unlock on February 9 at 8pm AEST.
If you want to sign-up for beta access, things get a little bit more convoluted - your first step will be to head to the sign-up section on the site and select which platform you'd like to the beta on - PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC.
