Several leaks on different platforms continue to confirm this discreet production of the game with a collaboration between NetEase and Bungie for an unprecedented adventure.

2️⃣ On the side of AAA game developers, Ubisoft is advancing its pawns with The Division Resurgence on mobile. The title gives its news this week with a first trailer. At the same time, the opening of pre-registration makes it possible to measure the public’s interest in this opus on Android and iOS which will serve as a prequel to both PC games.

Between colorful explosions and dynamic combat, you will choose a unique driver and vehicle and work on your skill to achieve victory. The game is already available on TapTap if you can’t wait for the world release to ride in your plastic tank and take part in toy deathmatches.
