My love for The Division's beta bloomed in a brutal PvP battlefield

The Division's closed beta wraps up today, and despite the super limited amount of content available in this pre-release sliver of Ubisoft's open-world third-person shooter, I'm gonna miss it. The beta showcased some slick progression hooks, let players take a run at an instanced co-op mission and, best of all, let anarchy run wild in the Dark Zone. That's The Division's player vs. player area, where you're encouraged to trust nobody — unless, of course, in that cruel arena, an unlikely friendship is forged.

You can hear some thoughts from Arthur and me and watch a bunch of gameplay video from The Division's beta above. The Division launches March 8 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
