If you are one of the many players who digitally preordered Tom Clancy’s The Division on Xbox One or PC through Steam or Uplay, you can now pre-load the game in preparation for launch day on March 8th.

The news comes via a Ubisoft press release. Those who ordered The Division on Playstation 4, can preload the game on March 6th at 00:01 AM local time – unless you’re in Japan, where it will be available March 8th at 00:01 AM local time.

Servers for The Division will go live on March 8th at 00:01 AM AEDT across all systems. Interestingly, digital copies of The Division will be active at 12:01 AM EST on March 8th. This means if you get your physical disc early, you will be able to play earlier than those who bought the game digitally (AEDT is 16 hours ahead of EST).

If you are a little bummed, don’t worry – Ubisoft says reviewers will hit the streets of New York City the same time as everybody else. In the meantime, here are some tips to help you get prepared for combat in The Division.
