Anyone who enjoys a good tactical military gaming experience is likely a fan of any game with Tom Clancy’s name slapped in front of the title. For fans of mobile games, you too can now enjoy the absolute mayhem and carnage from the Division series that is synonymous with the Clancy brand with this latest installment The Division Resurgence.
According to Ubisoft, the game’s publisher, you can expect the new title to yet again take place in New York City and will feature a ‘vast open world’ that players will be able to roam around freely. Ubisoft has also stated that The Division: Resurgence builds upon the game modes showcased in previous titles but that the new title will ship with unique loot.
The game is going to be free-to-play by nature, but Ubisoft hasn’t given much information on how microtransactions will factor into the mobile experience. As anyone who’s played AAA-mobile titles before would say though, you can assume that there will likely be some level of pay-to-win mechanics involved.
Another thing we haven’t got from Ubisoft yet is a clear release date for the game. However, those so inclined can register now for a chance to try the game on for size in the closed alpha test.
Following the narrative of the Division series, the game likely deals with the aftermath of a genetically engineered virus known only as ‘Green Poison.’ We don’t have much more information on the game sadly, but through research, we have found that the game is likely not based explicitly on any of Tom Clancy’s novels, even though it bears the illustrious author’s name.
From what we can tell though, the game may take inspiration from a Tom Clancy novel written in 2000 called Bio Strike. The subject matter of the game was also likely referenced at the beginning of Rainbow Six, another book by Clancy. Looking at what we know about the game so far, it seems to take heavy inspiration from two real-world events in human history; Operation Dark Winter and Directive 51.
We’ll have to wait a little longer for any additional information on the game. In the meantime, however, you can enjoy other titles from the Tom Clancy Ubisoft stable like Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction.
