If your time is too precious to fritter away on waiting for things to download, get a headstart for The Division beta this weekend on Xbox One.

The Division closed beta kicks off this weekend on January 28 through January 31 for Xbox One, with PC and PS4 players jumping in on January 29.

You’ll be able to download the beta client 48 hours in advance so that you can dive straight in with no hanging around, but if you want to be super duper doubly sure it’s raring to go when you are, and you have an Xbox One, you can pre-download it right now.

The instructions are fairly straightforward and involve changing your location to Singapore.

You’ll need to pre-order the game to nab a spot in the closed beta. Alternatively, follow The Division on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for the chance to get a code.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

The Division is out March 8 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Remember, if you’re looking for a group to play The Division, our partners at have the perfect LFG solution.
