Preload The Division now!

Ubisoft's upcoming open world RPG style action title is ready to preload right now, coming to your choice of console next week
Ubisoft's The Division is launching on the 8th of March 2016, and the company will be hoping that it's the start of a new franchise to join their stellar ranks which already include Far Cry and Assassin's Creed.
We've just heard that the game files are ready to preload right now on Xbox One and PS4 so if you were clever enough to pre-order you should be able to get started - and you'll nab some extra loot into the bargain. It seems like the game will take up around 33 gigs on your Xbox One and closer to 40 on your PS4. If you already downloaded the sizeable beta then make sure to get rid of it to free up some space as they're separate files completely.
The game itself has been coming together over a number of years, with the original debut trailer at E3 2013 now looking a bit different. It's really an action RPG deep in its DNA, and you can totally play it alone if you're so inclined, or head out with a party of friends to clean up New York. If it can capture the energy of this excellent launch trailer then it could be one of the surprise hits of the year.
The Division is out everywhere on the 8th of March 2016.
