Default Tom's Clancy The Division

So I couldn't find any other thread on this game so I figured I'd start one since the Beta started last night. Has anyone played it ? Good / Bad ?

Will be trying it tonight, but I will say Ubisoft blew it with the beta code system this time. I signed up months ago when it first hit the headlines, and have bought at least one popular Ubisoft game since then (in case they cared about that). Nothing arrived in my email saying I was give a code since signing up. Fine, maybe they were waiting until xbox users were straightened out. Nope, still nothing.
Nvidia came out with their codes yesterday, yay, got one. Nope, site is broken, invalid code, like hundreds of other people.
@MSI has a contest to give out codes, yay, got one. First 2 tries to activate fail, then magically work and I get the key for Uplay.

Today Ubisoft announces no more codes at least for 24hrs because of 'overwhelming interest' in the game. So my interest months ago was for nothing? And for all my friends who signed up who are even more interested in this than I was?

Curious how did anyone else get codes?

For a game with very little advertising, very few leaks, I'm surprised they have overwhelming interest.

I signed up on the Ubisoft site for a beta code, no email either. It looks to be another $130 game (game+season pass), so I'm not sure I'll even buy it.

I got mine from the Nvidia giveaway yesterday morning. Took a bit to register it probably because of the servers. Both started getting hammered pretty hard after around 8:30am ish PST.

Haven't played enough to really get much impressions yet. Game had problems with my dual monitors though, I think it defaulted to windowed fullscreen mode but was detecting my resolutions has something really weird and so I can't use windowed mode only fullscreen.

It was one the more anticipated "next gen" (at the time of the PS4/Xbox One launch) announced titles especially due to the graphics that were showcased back then. Lost some buzz after delays and the common "graphics downgrade" controversy.

Its surprisingly fun actually. Provided you get onto a team that isn't made up of absolute idiots.

I got in from a humble bundle that included a beta key with a handful of games.

Tried a couple hours with a person I know on Steam, and it confirms my gaming style when there's so much content in a game like this: I can't tolerate speedrunners. I want to stop and check out the scenery but you can't when your team runs off and starts the next mission. It's a shame because some of the larger fights are tricky alone.

Well, that didn't take long... uninstalled after less than thirty minutes. The opening slide show-thanks to the default 5120x2880 resolution- was a nice touch.
