The trend of bringing big titles to mobile devices continues, as Blizzard saw success with Diablo Immortal, Ubisoft hopes to accomplish the same with The Division Resurgence, which is basically The Division on mobile, also admitted by its developers. The announcement came with a trailer, and you can check it out for yourself below.

The trailer shows off engine footage, which is a good sign of things to come if we’re strictly speaking about the graphics department. However, it lacks actual gameplay, which would have been welcome for those interested in checking it out.

That said, Ubisoft got on top of the questions fairly quickly, with the developer releasing a post that answered some of the more frequently asked questions on The Division Resurgence. According to the post, The Division Resurgence is a free-to-play mobile third-person RPG shooter, in the same vein as The Division and The Division 2. It’s also open-world and boasts an entirely separate campaign from the previous two titles.

Ubisoft also maintained that The Division Resurgence retains “all the core gameplay mechanics that make up the foundations of Division games while adapting the controls to handheld devices.” That's a statement sure to be scrutinized closely once actual gameplay is released. What’s curiously missing in the post is a clarification on its monetization schemes. Given Blizzard’s extreme approach to monetizing Diablo Immortal, questions on Ubisoft’s monetization for The Division Resurgence may be worth answering to satisfy the fears of its potential players.

If you want a chance to check out the game earlier than the rest of the player base, Ubisoft announced a first closed alpha test, which you can sign up for here. If you are selected, you will receive an email, and Ubisoft will make you sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) before you join the alpha. The existence of an NDA may just be inconsequential in the end. However, it could also be a potential shield for all incoming criticism that will be hurled at The Division Resurgence once we know its monetization scheme.
