Tom Clancy's The Division

Ubisoft has officially unveiled all of the changes that are going to be coming to The Division’s open beta later this month. The company held a closed beta late last month and appears to be putting the data it mined from that run to good use. The list of changes was revealed thanks to a patch applied on the PS4 version. We already knew a new faction was coming and had heard about a new mission, but the changelog also details a number of server optimizations, localization fixes and improvements, and quite a few stability fixes.

The nice thing about the way Ubisoft is carrying out these betas is that those who participated in the closed beta, won’t have to download a whole new client in order to play the open beta. This is how the details about the changes were able to be found nearly 10 days before the new testing round gets underway. The open beta phase, on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC for The Division kicks off on February 19. Check out the changelog below:

New Mission Available to play, Subway Morgue:

  • Encounter a new faction: The Cleaners
  • Explore a Mass Grave while trying to restore power to the city.
  • Rescue the missing Engineer, Paul Rhodes

Unlock an additional Wing in the Base of Operations:

  • The first upgrade to the Twch Wing is now available
  • A new skill can now be unlocked: The deployable turret

Numerous Dark Zone updates and improvements

  • A new warning icon has been added to indicate an Agent who has shot another player but has not done enough damage to go Rogue
