The Division 2 Early Access how to get

To ensure that you qualify for The Division 2 early access, you will have needed to pre-order one of the game’s five editions. Out of that quintet, only the standard version of the game comes without a guarantee to play it early.

The other four do, and these are the Gold Edition, Ultimate Edition, Dark Zone Collector’s Edition, and Phoenix Shield Collector’s Edition. If you have pre-purchased any of those four, you will get a three-day early access guarantee and be able to play The Division 2 before its March 15 release date.
