Here's When The Division Beta Pre-Load Starts
With The Division's upcoming closed multiplayer beta starting soon, Ubisoft has revealed that players will be able to pre-load it 48 hours before the pre-release play period officially begins.
This information was drawn from a post on The Division's French page, which was translated by Videogamer. However, it's uncertain if pre-loading will be supported on all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Division's closed beta begins on January 28 for Xbox One owners who preordered the game, while PS4 and PC users can get started January 29. The beta ends on all platforms on January 31.
The beta client reportedly weighs in at 26.25 GB (at least on PC), so the ability to pre-load is a nice option to have.
