The Division will let players create up to four characters at a time- and while you will have to pick which one to play as each time you boot up the game, you’re free to switch out by going to the start menu any time you want. Of course, you might not necessarily want or need multiple characters- Ubisoft explained that while you can only have two skills equipped at any time, you’re free to swap between those you’ve unlocked at any time, which means you aren’t locked into one particular build with your character.
“You can have more than one character in the Division. You can have up to four characters at the same time,” he explained. “You just have to choose in the Start menu which one you want.” Vincent said this is ideal for playing with various groups of friends at different levels.
The Division is getting a beta in December. It is due to launch for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC next year.
