The Division 2 will also allow 8 players to partner up for Raids, the new endgame challenge. These challenging missions, which will launch post-release, will put larger groups of players to the test, forcing them to use to use advanced tactics to achieve their objectives. The Division 2 launches in March 2019, and a beta will be held before launch. A beta is now available for interested players, and you can register for it at the game's website here.
