Unfortunately, PC players looking forward to playing the closed beta of the eagerly anticipated The Division were met by an unexpected roadblock today- well, at the very least if they were using Steam. The beta was simply not showing up on Steam. Ubisoft had promised that it had reached out to Valve to look into the issue, and now it seems that whatever the problem was has been fixed- people are reporting on the Ubisoft forums that The Division beta is accessible for them on Steam.
The beta has been available on Xbox One for a couple of days now, while PC and PS4 players only got access to it starting January 29. The beta runs through to January 31, so while Steam players lost some valuable hours of beta access, they’ve still got plenty of time to get a proper feel for the game, and figure out whether or not they really want it.
The Division launches on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this March.
