Ubisoft has announced that its upcoming private beta for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will begin early next month on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

More specifically, The Division 2's private beta will run from Thursday, February 7th, to Monday, February 11th in Europe. And given that the game launches just over a month later, this is presumably a "beta" in the new-fangled sense of the word.

According to Ubisoft, there are two ways in which interested parties can get involved. Those that pre-order the game are guaranteed access to the private beta, while everyone else can register to play via The Division 2's website. The publisher notes, however, that places are limited and "invites to registered players will be sent based on the available space".

Those that opt to pre-order The Division 2, meanwhile, might also want to look at the private beta FAQ. There are a variety of different, not always intuitive, steps required to access the beta, depending on where the game is purchased and whether it's a physical or digital copy.

Start and end times, plus more details on what will be available to play during the private beta, will be revealed closer to February 7th.

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 launches on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 15th. As previously announced, the PC version will be skipping Steam this time around.
