Instead of the earlier announced beta of "Tom Clancy's The Division," game developer, Ubisoft, said that it will hold a closed alpha of the game for players who already ordered the title on Xbox One.

Geek said that since the beta for the game will be delayed until next year, the alpha will start on Dec. 9 at 4 a.m. EST until 3 a.m. on Dec. 12.

During the duration of this alpha stage, the game developer is expected "to test the game's infrastructure under real world conditions (i.e. having the public play it) in order to iron out any kinks, and to also get fan feedback in order to make the final product stronger."

Set to be available in 23.2 GB file size, the alpha will be available in almost all countries except Japan and China.

According to WinBeta, the alpha testing period is the first time that gamers will be able to play a version of "The Division" which goes beyond the Dark Zone areas.

"This means the moment you and other players sign into the game, you'll be giving us valuable insight into how our infrastructure performs under pressure that we can't replicate internally or at a tradeshow," game developers were quoted by WinBeta as saying.

But Ubisoft had a simple request for the gamers who will try out the alpha phase. That is to avoid sharing videos, photos, and description of the games content outside the game's official forum.

"Players will be prompted to accept a non-disclosure agreement before playing the alpha," noted Ubisoft.

The UbiBlog also added that this agreement will include capturing gameplay content, live streaming, posting images, and discussing the alpha anywhere outside of the alpha forums.

As for the beta version, WinBeta said this could be expected early next year, as the game developer expressed that they want to offer gamers the best gaming experience possible with the upcoming release.

It is expected to be available for Xbox One, PC, and PS4 users and will feature additional languages, aside from those which will be introduced in alpha, Geek added.

"It will also allow Ubisoft to test their servers with a larger group of users," added the same report.

"The Division" will be released on the three mentioned gaming consoles on March 8, 2016.

UbiBlog said the game will be about a pandemic that will devastate New York City and will leave it in complete chaos -- without water, food and other basic needs. The division, composed of tactical agents, will be activated to save the what remains of the affected society.
