The Division Beta Seeing "Very High Demand," New Codes Going Out


Ubisoft on Saturday provided a new update regarding The Division’s closed multiplayer beta. The pre-release play period continues to see “very high demand,” the developer said in its forums, which may explain why you may not have gotten in right away, even if you preordered.

For those players, there is some good news.

“We are now beginning to grant access to all remaining players who have redeemed a guaranteed access preorder code on the beta registration website,” Ubisoft said.

For players on the waitlist, however, there are still no guarantees that you’ll get in.

“We’re also doing our best to grant access to players on the waitlist,” the developer said. “Please check back later during the weekend for an update on this. We thank you again for your excitement and understanding.”

On Friday, Ubisoft said it hopes to add as many people on the waitlist as possible, but cautioned that “space will be severely limited for the rest of the beta testing phase due to high-demand.”

The Division’s closed multiplayer beta began on January 28 for Xbox One and was extended to PS4 and PC a day later. It is scheduled to end across all platforms tomorrow, January 31.
