Snowdrop Engine revs up ‘future forward experience’ in ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’

Ubisoft Massive’s new Snowdrop Engine is driving its upcoming game, “Tom Clancy’s The Division.” And to get a sense of how powerful the engine is, watch the demo trailer shared at E3 2014 that clearly shows how Snowdrop makes “The Division” a “future-forward experience,” writes Xbox Wire.

Just looking at one aspect alone, the lighting, is incredible. The engine uses “dynamic global illumination,” which means that the game’s lighting is “accurately reflected by every object in the game, from that bus that drove past you, to the body of your assault rifle, to your character’s eyes,” writes Xbox Wire. “This requires a lot of processing power and some expert coding to work properly, and “The Division” has made it a high priority.”
