Ubisoft officially confirms that it will bring The Division’s Dark Zone to mobile via the upcoming game The Division Resurgence.
In the latest edition of Ubisoft Forward, the company announced that it will bring the Dark Zone to Revival of the Division. Since its inception in 2016, Tom Clancy’s The Division has grown a good fan base. As the company looks to introduce more content to the popular franchise, the re-emergence of The Dark Zone comes as one of Ubisoft’s latest additions to Division.
Although The Dark Zone has been featured before, this is the first time it will appear in a mobile format. Revival of the Division was first announced in July, where fans were able to participate in a closed alpha test. It was one of several Ubisoft franchises to hit mobile, along with the likes of Rainbow Six and even Assassin’s Creed. Now, with the latest announcement, players can expect the closed beta of Revival of the Division to start soon.
After this year’s Ubisoft Forward event, the publisher revealed that Dark Zone will be a session-based activity in the Revival of the Division. Players can choose to either participate alone or as a team of up to three players and will face off against other opponents made for matches. How about me Division 2, one of the main features of the game will also see players collecting and getting loot. However, in the Dark Zone, fans will receive contaminated loot that must be extracted and decontaminated before equipping and using any of it.
According to the reveal, during a game of the Dark Zone, if a player dies before extraction, some of the collected loot will be discarded, allowing others to pick it up. The announcement also revealed that players would have the option to cheat during a match. This means that every player will have the option to take players from the same team, although this cheat status can be removed if players change their minds later. Amidst all this, what Ubisoft didn’t reveal is a release date for the upcoming game. However, Revival of the Division has already opened registrations for the closed beta, which is scheduled for this fall.
While Ubisoft looks to capitalize on the mobile gaming market with Resurrection, is also releasing more content for PC and console owners. The company officially unveiled the long-awaited Division: Heartland, a free-to-play entry into the franchise. Additionally, Ubisoft has confirmed that more content is on the way Division 2. So all in all, it looks to be an exciting time for fans of the franchise.
