Revel at the Power of the Snowdrop Engine
by Arthur Kotsopoulos
I had the chance to check out an extremely hard to get into, behind closed doors showcase of Tom Clancy’s The Division at E3 this year. What I saw was nothing short of amazing, graphically The Division blew my mind.
The main reason behind why I loved it so much, was not because the world was vast, draw distance was large and character models looked realistic, but because the small things made me all giddy with joy.
Unprecedented physical accuracy within the environment is present to enhance immersion such as bullet holes in billboards or police cars and windows, characters rather than statically passing an open car door would actually close it before moving along. A light probe system captures indoor and outdoor lighting realistically, a dynamic day and night cycle that you could stop playing and just marvel at such a technical achievement and much more.
Today, Ubisoft have released a Youtube video that will showcase everything I just talked about above and more.
