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.

    Looks impressive! I wonder if it’s paid MMO like WoW.

      It’s not. It’s sort of a pseudo-MMO, like Destiny.

    This engine is ridiculous.

    Let’s see if the actual is game is any good.

    I would have liked to see more about the gameplay and story. I recognised quite a few scenes from the E3 2013 footage with different angles and a narrator to draw your attention to certain details.

    It makes me think they’ve still got a long way to go to make a game out of this, and the current release date of this time next year doesn’t seem like enough time. Ghost Recon Future Soldier took years before it came out.

    Impressive game engine. Looking forward to play the game on my PS4 :)
