The Division kicked off its open beta yesterday for Xbox One owners and is now live for PS4 & PC too.
Ubisoft are doing daily info updates for the open beta.
They have released a couple of pro-tip videos straight from the developers to give you some insight into some features that you might not know about. Today’s pro-tip features more information on matchmaking from the mega map. UI Designer Alexander Weatherston shows how the Mega Map can be used for matchmaking with other players to form a squad. Check it out below!
Yesterday you were tasked with assisting as many civilians as possible throughout your adventures in New York. An immense amount of civilians were assisted by Agents yesterday as many of you understood their vital role in rebuilding society. As a community you assisted over 2 million civilians and for your efforts everyone will receive a pack of 3 water bottles, 3 sodas, 3 energy bars and 3 canned food to use for your future adventures. One Agent went above and beyond and will therefor receive a special reward. sweatyjew102 helped 31 civilians civilians alone! Some agents however required a bit off assistance themselves and couldn’t spare extra resources for civilians. OriginalModsy used 171 med-kits on themselves in the first day alone!
Today’s Daily Mission –
Throughout the city you will find a special breed of adversary who think the answer to all problems is fire. These blue-collar workers are under the impression that there is only one way to cleanse the world of the virus and now roam the streets as the dangerous Cleaners. We have received a number of reports that they are holding JTF soldiers and civilians hostage, taking over the subway area, and controlling areas within the Dark Zones. Now is when we fight back.
Your mission today is to take out as many Cleaners as possible. Use the rewards you received from yesterday, we ask for you as a community to do your own cleanse New York of as many Cleaners as you can. This will unlock a reward for every agent, and the agent who kills the most Cleaners will receive a special reward for exceptional performance. Be sure to be on the lookout and be sure to avoid the fire!
