Ubisoft Shows Impressive "The Division" Snowdrop Engine

Ubisoft has uploaded a clip of its new game engine, Snowdrop. The upcoming game, Tom Clancy's 'The Division,' will run on this game engine, and from the looks of it, be quite stunning. There's a lot that can be said about the engine, but not much of it is public information yet. We could mention features such as the engine's support for a dynamic day and night cycle, weather affected surfaces, procedural destruction, support for dynamic global illumination, and the epic particle system, but you're probably better off watching the clip. So without further ado, enjoy the clip below.

The video is safe for work.

Ubisoft did announce that Tom Clancy's 'The Division' will be coming to the Xbox One, PS4, and happily, PC. Yes, when Ubisoft said 'next generation' it actually meant something.
