If you took part in The Division 2‘s private beta in February, you won’t need to download and install a separate application to play the open beta. The question was put to Ubisoft via Twitter by user RhythmToTheGuns.

RhythmToTheGuns wanted to know if a new application would be required if private beta besters wanted to take part in the open beta. Ubisoft responded by saying the already installed app would be enough, and that private beta testers only need to install a patch in order to access it.

In order to get The Division 2 open beta download file, you can do so by pre-loading the open beta in preparation for it going live on Friday, March 1.

To download the open beta on PS4 or Xbox One, sign in to your PSN or Xbox account, and head to the Store tab. Search for “The Division 2 open beta” in the search bar, and then select the option to download it.

If you’re planning to play on PC, you’ll have two options available to you. First, if you’re getting it from the Epic Games store, sign in to the launcher and head to the Library tab. Locate the open beta file here, and click the “install” button. This will launch Ubisoft’s Uplay and this will prompt you to pre-load the file.

If you’re getting it through Uplay itself, sign in and switch to the Games tab. Scroll to My Games, and find the open beta file. Click on the game tile and you’ll pre-load it.
