    Firstly I want to thank C4 for teaming up and exploring the game. Playing in a group takes an already good game to a whole new level.

    Secondly, I am not sure what the policy is on posting links, but I captured a (3Gb) movie of a pug run through the Madison Square Garden instance (on hard difficulty) in the game for those of you who may not have gotten into the beta.

    Open Beta confirmed for next weekend 18th (XB1), 19th-21st (PS4, PC).

    That's US times, so late night those dates for Aussies, or just the next morning.

    A new story mission will be available to play during the Open Beta, however I'm not sure if any other features will be unlocked, like crafting (unlikely).

    This is a link to screenshots for the PS4 update history for the new patch, ready for the Open Beta. Hopefully the PvE world will also have some of those new roaming factions.

    If the Open Beta starts at the same hour as the Closed one did, it will be at 1200 UTC on the days specified, which for those of us who are ahead will be pretty much the next day.

    I really enjoyed the story mission in MSG, and am really looking forward to the new mission. You can already view footage of the 3rd story mission (Lincoln Tunnel) which will not be available during Open Beta as it was captured during a Press Invitational Event.

    The closed beta burnt my gfx card. Like, literally flames coming out the top. Might give the next one a miss until the replacement arrives :p

    The Open Beta is up on UPlay for Pre-Load. Well, I'm guessing so, anyway, cause I just had a 1.6GB update to my old Beta client.

    Hi There,

    I've also installed the open beta just now and added my Uplay name to the existing thread in our FPS Mess Hall message board. :D

    Talk, but not much more. I wouldn't expect to see it for quite a while, 6-12 months at least.

    Prodigal Son Mortis, reporting for Division duty. Had a blast playing with some TOG guys beta weekend and look to hook up with you guys after launch - I have to do something until Star Citizen launches, and the Division is so much a cross between Far Cry and Rainbow 6 Vegas (both of which I have played) that I am very much at home playing it.

    I will be looking for you guys on TS shortly after launch - good hunting 8)

    Quite enjoyed my time in open beta with The Division... even if my gfx card was on the absolute low-end (dual-GTX570's...I have a plan to get a GTX970 very soon to play this game and to help future proof me for a few more years on this computer).

    pre-ordered and waiting.

    It ran nicely on my old GTX780Ti - I saw more issues with lag than gfx. On the subject of lag I heard a rumour that there will be Australian based game servers which is good news indeed, if it's true.

    I've taken a couple of days off work next week to hit The Division running, I'll be hanging out in TS if anyone wants to group up for whatever.
