Less compared to a week following your first Anthem closed alpha test took place, it appears that Ubisoft's The Division 2 is following suit. Today, Ubisoft stated that it's planning to hold quite a limited technical alpha that could run between December 15 and 18. The alpha will probably be under an NDA, so pricier to see any juicy gameplay details beyond vague hints and untrustworthy leaks. Invitations may go out on December 13.
In to earn having access to The Division 2's technical alpha, players ought to have registered for that game's upcoming beta in the official Ubisoft website. There's no special sign-up to your technical alpha, specifically. Ubisoft will instead simply find the necessary number of players through the already existing pool of beta registrants. People who haven't listed yet can easily still do so, not surprisingly, but no new registrants will be obtaining an invitation. The chosen few have been pre-selected.
For people who weren't invited, don't stress. Ubisoft has confirmed there is going to be the official private beta for The Division 2 just before launch. Pre-orderers are guaranteed having access to this beta, really clean a sign-up if you haven't pre-ordered likewise.

There's not sure on the the technical alpha will include at this time. All Ubisoft will to state could be that the technical alpha might be comprised of only a "small portion" within the game. Put simply, it ought to just adequate enough to tantalize enough alpha invitees to go browsing (or otherwise attempt to go online) and play for many hours whilst the servers are stress tested to the point of crashing.
Just because Ubisoft offers the example of launching The Division to their rear, not forgetting running several concurrent online multiplayer games, too, does not mean this technical alpha or even launch moves perfectly smoothly. Ubisoft will most likely be pushing its tech, which could or are probably not completely rebuilt through the original game, to the absolute limits purely to better learn what it's dealing with. This technical test will hopefully make for a much better The Division 2 launch for everyone players. It wouldn't be worst in comparison to the original game's launch, at least.
The Division 2 releases on March 15, 2019 for your PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
