Less over a week once the first Anthem closed alpha test occurred, it appears that Ubisoft’s The Division 2 is following suit. Today, Ubisoft says it’s going to hold an extremely limited technical alpha which will run between December 15 and 18. The alpha will likely be under an NDA, so don’t expect to see any juicy gameplay details beyond vague hints and untrustworthy leaks. Invitations moves from December 13.
In order to earn entry to The Division 2‘s technical alpha, players should have registered for your game’s upcoming beta via the official Ubisoft website. There’s really no special sign-up for that technical alpha, specifically. Ubisoft will instead pick the necessary wide variety of players from your already established pool of beta registrants. Individuals who haven’t enrolled yet may still do this, naturally, but no new registrants will be obtaining a party invitation. The chosen few are already pre-selected.
For folks that weren’t invited, don’t stress. Ubisoft has confirmed that there will likely be the state private beta for The Division 2 just before launch. Pre-orderers are guaranteed entry to this beta, but there is however a sign-up in case you haven’t pre-ordered also.
We will likely be performing a confidential Technical Alpha this week-end, that has a not a lot of range of players selected that can help us test our servers and give feedback. To read more, visit https://t.co/zK3v4EGrUj pic.twitter.com/x6ubv00h3p

There’s not sure on the amount the technical alpha includes at this time. All Ubisoft would likely to state is the fact that technical alpha will probably be comprised of a “small portion” within the game. To paraphrase, it ought to just adequate to tantalize enough alpha invitees to go browsing (at least aim to log on) and play for a number of hours as you move the servers are stress tested to the point of crashing.
Just because Ubisoft has the knowledge of launching The Division behind them, not forgetting running several concurrent online multiplayer games, too, does not this technical alpha or even just launch may go perfectly smoothly. Ubisoft will most likely be pushing its tech, which may or probably are not completely rebuilt with the original game, for its absolute limits to better find out what it’s addressing. This technical test will hopefully create an even better The Division 2 launch for those players. It cannot be worst in comparison to the original game’s launch, at the very least.
The Division 2 releases on March 15, 2019 for that PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
