The Division’s Snowdrop Engine Shown Off At VGX

After teasing fans just a few days ago, Ubisoft has now released a new trailer for its massively multiplayer, post-apocalyptic, role-playing shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division. Shown at VGX this past weekend the trailer shows off the capabilities of the game’s new Snowdrop engine.

The video below details how the world is impacted by a “dynamic” day and night cycle as well as a offering a closer look into their new system to capture light realistically, advanced volumetric lighting, procedural destruction and impressive particle effects resulting in some pretty stunning looking graphics to excite those of us who have taken a leap to the next-gen systems and maybe entice those still stuck on the fence.

 

Originally announced with a 7-minute gameplay demo during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference this year, Tom Clancy’s The Division is due for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in late 2014 and I for one can not wait to get my hands on this gorgeous looking title.
