    The Division: Beta?

    Will any of you awesome The Division fans please answer if there will be a Division beta, because i have seen a few things about it, but im not 100% about it. And could you please add weather you would want a beta of this game or not, maybe if we get alot of people putting it, we may get it by popular demand.

    hi there,

    at present there are no plans for a beta test - however if that changes it will be posted here.


    Be aware that there are fake betas floating around the internet, these are NOT real and maybe an attempt to steal your data!

    You may have done; the Alpha and Beta are just stages of the build process. Typically the Alpha is once there is a running game, with minimal graphics, while the beta is close to finished, but usually where they stress-test it, and look for all the bugs and glitches. However, in order to achieve this, some studios open up their game to either a select number of people (closed Beta), or just open it up to everyone (open beta). Consequently, due to the demand for 'sneak peeks' and demos, the "Beta" has become somewhat synonymous with "early access" rather than what it's really there for!

    I would hope for there to be a beta of some kind to stress test servers, and accelerate the bug busting. Especially since this is going to be an online mmotps.

    As I said previously, there will definitely be a "Beta", but it probably won't be open to the public.
    Also, what's an mmotps? Massive Multiplayer Online Team Play Shooter? It's meant to be an MMORPG

    MMOTPS= Massively Multiplayer Online Third Person Shooter

    In regards to the beta, yeah I always assume it to be a closed beta invitational type one.
