The Division Resurgence

The Division Resurgence is the latest entry in Ubisoft’s third-person shooter franchise developed for mobile platforms. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming game, from gameplay details to how to sign up for the Alpha.

Tom Clancy’s The Divison has quickly grown into one of Ubisoft’s most successful franchises. The 2016 original saw the biggest launch week for a new franchise in gaming history, and while The Divison 2 failed to match it in terms of sales, it grew into an immensely popular action RPG.

The publisher has made no secret of its plan to expand The Division universe beyond just console releases, and The Division Resurgence will see the series join the likes of Call of Duty and Apex Legends in the growing mobile market.

Here are all of the details released about The Divison Resurgence so far, including how you can access the Alpha.

The Division Resurgence release date window

At the time of writing, there is no official release date for The Division Resurgence, however, we do know that it will be coming in 2023.

It will be free-to-play on both iOS and Android devices when it arrives sometime next year, and we expect Ubisoft to share more details in the coming months.

The Division Resurgence Alpha sign-up

Although the release of The Division Resurgence is still way off, a Closed Alpha test is “just around the corner.”

In order to sign up for the Alpha, players must:

  1. Register on the official Ubisoft website here.
  2. Select their platform of choice.
  3. Fill out the form with their personal details
  4. Await an email to confirm they have been chosen

Entrants will be selected based on the platforms and locations the developers want to test first and will receive an invitation a few days before the Alpha begins.

It’s worth noting that participants will also have to sign NDA to agree they will not share details about the game outside of the private Discord channel.

The Division Resurgence gameplay

New York City in The Division Resurgence

As is standard in The Division series, players will have a huge open-world New York City to explore, chocked full of missions to shoot through and loot to collect.

It also appears that Resurgence will retain The Division’s RPG elements since players can choose a specialization and level up to improve their skills and abilities. There will also be special weapons and outfits to track down with huge stat boosts.

Both solo and co-operative play will be supported throughout the campaign, but it’s unclear if there will be a PvP element as there was in past games in the series.

Describing the game, Ubisoft said: “The fight for New York is not over! Rediscover the world-acclaimed franchise now on mobile with The Division Resurgence. Enjoy a AAA experience featuring a new storyline set in a massive urban open-world.”

The Division Resurgence story

The Division Resurgence characters

The Division Resurgence is set to take place near the events of the first two games, depicting New York City after a viral epidemic has left society in ruin.

Ubisoft have explained that the game will show events from the previous titles in a different light, as players control a member of the first batch of SHD agents sent to maintain order after the outbreak.

Little more is known about The Division Resurgence at this time, but we’ll be sure to update this page with all the latest information.

Apex Legends’ popularity reaches new heights after Season 14 update

With the release of Apex Legends Season 14, the Battle Royale game is experiencing an unprecedented amount of active players.

Apex Legends Season 14 has achieved a new peak in popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s FPS Battle Royale game.

Apex Legends Season 14 brings some exciting new content to the game after the battle royale saw a slight dip in popularity towards the end of last season.

Luckily for Respawn, the brand-new Legend Vantage, overhauled Kings Canyon map, and huge Level Cap increase has been a massive hit with the fans, despite players finding bugs and glitches.

The new content has been so appealing that the game has even reached a new all-time peak player count on Steam, showing just how popular Apex Legends Season 14 is.

As of August 10, 2022, Apex Legends has a peak of 510,286 concurrent players, which is the highest it has ever been.

Although it’s only Steam‘s player count, this still shows just how popular the new Season of Apex Legends currently is.

Of course, the numbers are likely to decrease after launch week, but this is still impressive, especially as it shows that the game’s popularity is actually increasing despite being in its fourteenth season.

As Respawn continue to update and introduce new exciting content to the game, the player count will likely continue to rise, especially when players are now guaranteed an Heirloom.

Powerful Apex Legends glitch allows players to carry active Heat Shields on their head

Apex Legends players have noticed a new glitch in Season 14 which allows Heat Shields to be placed on character’s heads.

Published

A new powerful glitch has been found in Apex Legends after the Season 14 update which sticks Heat Shields on top of the character.

A new season of Apex Legends doesn’t just mean a new Legend, it also usually means new bugs and issues for the devs to fix.

While the Apex Legends Season 14 update launched smoothly, players have noticed some odd glitches and issues, such as characters having the wrong abilities and Wattson being unable to place her fences.

Now, players have found a bug in Season 14 which puts Heat Shields on the player’s head, which is actually very strong.

apex legends Heat Shield

Reddit user JomzYT put a video up in the Apex Legends subreddit showing off this new Heat Shield glitch, along with the caption “Apparently you can now put heatshields on your head!”

In the video, the player goes to place a Heat Shield down when it miraculously lands on their head and stays with them while they move.

Heat Shields are extremely useful in Apex Legends, as they protect you from the ring and can often save you or your teammate’s life, giving you time to heal up before making your way back into the ring.

Usually, they are placed on the floor, and can not be moved. However, with this glitch, the player is free to move around and remain protected by the Heat Shield, which is stuck to their head.

The fact that the player can move around with the Heat Shield makes this bug very powerful, leaving some in the comments of the post jokingly saying that “it’s a feature,” and a “buff.”

According to one of the users in the comments, this bug is associated with Vantage and could be to do with her winged companion Echo: “This is a thing that happens with Vantage at times, I accidentally pinged myself and my own echo earlier today. Seems like Echo stays physical even when holstered, this leaves one question. Rampart turret on Echo?”

Perhaps the Heat Shield was attached to Echo, as the player had not called the bat out. This has players reminiscing about similar bugs with Crypto and his drone: “Oh gosh, I remember when we had that bug with Crypto. That was funny, flying around on your turret shooting at people.”

Although it doesn’t seem like a major issue, Respawn will likely get this patched up as soon as possible. For more on Apex Legends, check out what NICKMERCS had to say about the Valkyrie nerfs in Season 14.
