Don't expect VideoGamer or any other publication to publish a review of The Division ahead of release, as reviewers will be playing the game alongside everyone else when the game launches and servers are turned on, Ubisoft has said.

"Since it's impossible for us to populate the servers in a way that would adequately replicate playing The Division on launch day, reviewers will start playing the game along with everyone else when it's released on March 8 - after the servers go live officially at 00:01AM Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT)," said Ubisoft.

"We anticipate there may be some impressions posted online within the first few days of launch that were based on experiences with The Division Beta, and we look forward to seeing streams, videos, and opinions that provide accounts of final, in-game conditions."

Players who opt for digital editions will be able to begin preloading today for Xbox One; Thursday, March 3 at 6PM CET / 9AM PT for PC (Steam/Uplay); and March 6 at 00:01AM local time on PlayStation 4.

"We can't wait for you to share these and other Division moments as you explore the streets and begin your journey to save New York City. Thank you for your continued support," concluded Ubisoft.
