We had some trouble finding beta when looking for PlayStation Store, so it might be easier to sign in to your account in a browser and add beta to your downloads. The next time you turn on your console, it should start downloading automatically.
Private beta player needs an update file
If you had the opportunity to check out the private beta file and kept the file installed, you just need to download an update file. On PS4, the update was 12 GB. Unfortunately, the private beta progress does not go over to the open beta, so you will play the missions you have already completed.
What's in Division 2 open beta?
The open beta unit has three main business missions, five side projects and various open world activities. Save for the third story, the open beta version is basically the same as the private beta. You can wade into one of the new Dark Zone areas for PvP and PvE action, and play a PvP multiplayer mode called Skirmish on multiple maps. The playoff, dubbed Invaded, is also available.
