The Division VGX featurette

A look at the Snowdrop engine.

Ubisoft debuted a new featurette for The Division, its upcoming next-gen MMO from Massive Entertainment, at VGX tonight.

The clip details the game’s specially developed Snowdrop engine. You’ll see its dynamic day and night cycle, dynamic global illumination, procedural destruction, advanced particle system, and dynamic material shaders, which allows the world to react to the game’s constantly changing weather.

Watch the video below. The game is expected to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2014.
