In an announcement on their blog, Ubisoft has confirmed an earlier rumor that they will be offering an open beta starting on February 18th for Xbox One players, and then for PS4/PC players on February 19th. The open beta will run until February 21st, which should give plenty of players a chance to jump in and try out the game before it releases officially on March 8th.

But what if you have already played in the closed beta? Well, Ubisoft is giving those players a little incentive to play through the upcoming open beta. Ubisoft has stated that the open beta will also include an all-new story mission that was not playable in the closed beta last month. Also, players who do participate will receive a special in-game reward for the full game when it releases.
