The Division Beta has come to an end and players on all platforms now have to wait for its final release. Open beta was a hit and according to Ubisoft, over 6 million agents were in New York during the beta.
The Division beta had 6.4 million agents to be exact. The number was spread across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Xbox One had one day head start from February 18, while players on PS4 and PC had to wait another 24 hours.
Xbox One also has timed exclusivity of The Division DLCs.
Today, The Division Beta ended and we’re proud to share that more than 6.4 million of you explored the pandemic-stricken streets of New York City, making it the biggest beta ever for a new game brand on current generation platforms.
On average, each player spend around 5 hours playing The Division beta and fulfilling an Agent’s duties in New York City. The Dark Zone was also a hit among PvP lovers.
The Dark Zone proved to be particularly popular, with players spending around 2-hours in the PVP zone, with almost 50% of agents turning Rogue in the process. Fun fact: over 63 309 800 contaminated items were successfully extracted out of the Dark Zone.
Ubisoft thanked players and asked fans to pick up the game on March 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Players who participated in the beta should know that their progress won’t carry over to the final game, so you can feel free to delete that client.
The Division has been in development for a long time and is a prime example of how it is better to delay a game then to rush it to the market.
The Division hasn’t disappointed so far and we are looking forward to picking it up in a few weeks, are you?
