Here’s how you can play The Division 2 beta this weekend

The Division 2 private beta has begun across PS4, Xbox One and PC, and it’s here to stay for a few more days. Trusted Reviews has compiled everything you need to know.

Already proving popular across all platforms, the third-person shooter’s playable trial can be accessed by renewing a code on your respective digital storefront.

However, to obtain a code you will have to pre-order The Division 2 and be sent a code or sign up on the official website for a chance to gain entry.

The second method doesn’t guarantee access to the private beta, but it’s certainly worth a shot if you’re unable to pre-order the game in the next few days.
