We got a chance to speak to Fabrice Navrez, executive producer on The Division Resurgence, about how the game will bring the same Division experience to your mobile game.
The Division Resurgence will open with a scene set before the events of the first game, but then transition to its main storyline, which sits between the first and second game on the timeline. Players will return to New York City and visit iconic locations like Liberty Island and Times Square.
The game recently completed its first closed alpha test, and there was positive feedback received thus far with the MMO aspects, including the ability to meet players out in the streets of New York as opposed to only in safe zones, resulting in what Navrez called interesting encounters.
The video also details two of the six classes available in the closed alpha: the Demolitionist, who carries a heavy gun that inflicts explosive area-of-effect damage, and the Bulwark, which is a melee tank class designed to draw enemy fire and deal massive damage up-close.
The Division Resurgence will release on iOS and Android at launch, though a specific timeframe has not yet been announced. More information will be provided during the Ubisoft Forward on September 10 at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET.
