The Division 2 PC open beta Gold Edition bug is only affecting those who have pre-purchased this edition for PC. Players who nabbed a copy of the gold version were given access to the private and open betas as part of their reward for sticking with Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment for this series’ latest installment.

Or they would do if they could download it. Forum users, such as WalkofShame, have taken to the internet to seek help with this error. Players received message errors after they were asked to connect their Epic Games account to the Uplay one, in order to download the open beta.
