Tom Clancy’s The Division Demos The Snowdrop Engine at VGX


Ubisoft brought Tom Clancy’s The Division to this year’s VGX. They released a trailer to demonstrate the power of Snowdrop, the brand new engine that the game is built on. The trailer shows off the impressive lighting effects, particle system, and shaders that will create realistic weather and time of day effects. The visual effects seek to replicate lighting effects usually only seen in film.

Tom Clancy’s The Division follows a team called the Strategic Homeland Division after a deadly virus sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. The city is thrown into chaos as order breaks down and anarchy reigns. The Division will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows.
