It's an exciting day for fans of The Division and mobile gamers alike with the news that Ubisoft will soon be releasing a free-to-play mobile game set in the same universe as the much loved third-person shooter, The Division.
Much like the original The Division game, The Division: Resurgence looks to be set in New York City after a viral outbreak. The Division: Resurgence will allow players to explore an open world where they can protect civilians from members of hostile factions. However, this isn't just a recreation of the first game for mobile; instead, the game will boast a new and independent story.
According to Ubisoft, The Division: Resurgence will offer players a “unique perspective on key story events that have taken place in both The Division and its sequel”.
The trailer, which was released to announce the upcoming game, says that the game will feature a AAA experience set in a massive urban open world. Players can enjoy the game alone or with friends via co-op, which allows both story-based missions and open-world encounters.
