You can now sign-up to be one of the first to play the upcoming open-world shooter/RPG during its Beta phase
So you have to preorder the X1 version in order to be in the beta? I guess I shall cancel the preorder when the game comes out. Nevermind, this is digital download only. If I preorder it I won't be able to cancel it through UPlay.
Yeah digital only, not cool. So I tried signing up for the "waiting list" but I wasn't able to enter my e-mail address anywhere. At the end it told me to check my mails... maybe they'll find me through Watch Dogs? :v
If you were signed into Uplay, it likely took your email from there.
I was able to sign-up for the PC wait list without problem using my uplay credentials.
Pre-order through Amazon and get a code, then cancel.
This. Except I didn't cancel, game looks sweet.
Open beta you say... Right now you say... Timed exclusive? Well, screw you too
They revealed this game way too soon. My interest has just gone way down
not only too soon but from gameplay videos seen, a underwhelming cover shooter with gadgets.
Piss off. Betas should be open to all for free. They get feedback.
Betas are to be honest the full game with some bugs here and there, you are not entitled to it, no one is, if you are not happy with this either wait for the full game or avoid it.
I was under the impression it was a small part of the game. Like destiny.
Except in Destiny the Beta turned out to be a larger part of the final game than one thought it was x)
@cfc83, why "should" it? They don't have a right to determine the best approach for testing their own software? I can think of lots of reasons to control access, including but not limited to the current status of the server environment, keeping tabs on the effects of traffic demands and scaling it up, keeping feedback organized, discouraging freeloaders who'd just jump in to play for free without providing feedback, and in general avoiding total chaos. On the other hand, explain why you feel entitled to it...
It should be free because the devs want free feedback. I don't feel entitled to it either. I merely stated betas ought to be free, as was the case with destiny and bf:hardline as two examples. If the community reports issues, it can help devs\publishers from a business viewpoint. I don't see why people should commit to pre-ordering to test a game. Though i do accept if it's a full game beta then that's different. Not so sure that would work though. Order>complete game>cancel order would happen quite a bit.
Beta time exclusive??? lol. Why limit yourself? Game just went down farther than it already was on my list.
With a packed out end to the year won't have the time but hopefully the game turns out worth the wait.
Ugh....erm.... What's with your avatar? O_o
You tell me?
haha, well played sir...
You don't know about Captain Warman?
lol, it's not that. Before that we had the exact same avatar pic.
Meh im not pre-ordering the game for the beta now timed exclusive beta? For real? piss off
Will wait on Ghost Recon. The Division Yawn
After seeing the E3 footage this year, coupled with the mega downgrade, I could care less.
I'm confused, you COULD care less? So it's not that bad then? I think what you meant was that you COULDN'T care less. You just sound silly saying you could care less. You're welcome.
So you teach internert englich!!!.....can i sign up.....lo...feckin...l
Already advertising a season pass UBI? wow
I can't believe you are actually surprised, wow.
I have never saw a company adverstising DLC a damn year before release.
Heck, a lot of games these days advertise the retailer exclusive DLC, season pass, and pre orders with the announcement trailers. Often close to a year before release.
Maybe a UBIsoft beta will actually surprise me, probably not they never do. I don't see myself buying a UBIsoft game for a long time unless it is one of those small indie style games which seem to always be great
The best way to make sure you attend the beta is pre-order through Amazon and make sure it's psychical copy, till you get the beta access code after that cancel your pre-order. Try the beta when it come if you liked it pre-order the game again.
Turns out the Beta is the actual game, but shh...of course it'll "improve." ;) I can't wait for the next trailer. Pixel count anyone? I mean, Ubisoft is all about that backward step movement in the graphics department. Show the world magic, give them a piece of...
Just pre-order for xbox one on Gamestop.com, don't have to put any money down and you still get access to the beta in December. Just did mine
I'm not surpriced that Ubisoft does not know what a beta is. Beta should be open to all without ties to pre-ordering the game. They should try to pool as many people to test their game for bugs and servers before launch. Maybe they are too scared to call it a demo because it will be a bug ridden mess just like AC:Unity and if big troubles arise they can just fling their arms to the air and yell "it's a beta, don't worry!"
Why would they do that when they can pre-sell a bunch of copies and accomplish the same thing.
I stopped caring about The Division a long time ago.
what?! did i just read that The Division is a timed xbox exclusive?! SINCE WHEN!? :'(
The beta is.
"Tom Clancy’s The Division is an online shooter with RPG elements. It allows four-player co-op and PvP play online. It will be on Xbox One (timed exclusive), PS4, and PC. It is scheduled to release March 8th, 2016" that doesnt sound like its talking about the beta. if it is then its worded terribly.
Googling it, apparently Xbox will get DLC first, but I couldn't find anything saying the game itself would release exclusive on Xbox first.
Useless, how about beta like Battlefield 3 had a segment of multiplayer on Xbox live back in the day, free to all and without the aggro. Bells of ends.
I always wondered what people meant when they said they were looking forward to the division. Now I know. Can't say I was not impressed with the e3 demo but I am not really worried about the game
Nah, you're alright.
Beta or no beta. I'm disappointed with the graphical fidelity. Atmospheric effects also lacking. So much promise & so much disappointment. : (
When I heard the Wilhelm scream and that horrible fake acting demo video it was all over for this game before it even came out.
Very much looking forward to this beta
i dont care about it much but damn this game's downgrade is getting to me :/ O.t arnt beta's a more benefit to devs than customers?
if its what I played at e3 than its not worth it.
The only thing that will get me interested in this game is some positive reviews and impressions from the community. I'm glad there is a beta coming so there will be lots of early impressions from gamers who have tried it.
Meh need to sign up for Uplay..i'll buy the game when it comes out.
just give me rb6 vegas on bf4 engine
instead of playing time exclusive stuff that is a waste of time imo...how about we hope anyone in the gaming industry brings back socom us navy seals the old ones from the ps2 era now thats a game to praise and tomb raider the last revelation..hopes up
Remember when one of PS+ perks were beta testing without jumping through hoops? I remember....
Please be good.
Everybody suddenly hates this game now since Xbox gets a fuckin beta exclusive. It comes out 3 months later for all the systems. You guys on here bitch too much and this game isn't any worse now just because of this little stunt. Why does it matter so much if you can't play the game 3 months sooner?!?!
