The developer hasn't detailed all of the game modes available, though in a press release Ubisoft stated that it "this new chapter builds on all the original game modes." Its various PvE activities can be played either solo or in co-op, and it's expected to add new gear, classes, and enemy factions. 

It's unclear if The Division Resurgence will feature support for any of the great mobile controllers out there, but Ubisoft stressed that it's being developed and optimized for mobile platforms, with "controls and a user interface tailored to ensure a smooth experience on handheld devices for veteran and newcomer players."

Players can sign up for a chance to participate in one of its upcoming technical tests on its official website. The Division Resurgence will be free-to-play on Android and iOS. At the moment, Ubisoft has not stated if or what kind of microtransactions if will have.
