Instead of showing off more gameplay as was expected for The Division’s VGX World Premier, the technology behind it was instead showcased. “Never before has a video game reached this level of detail” claims the narrator of the video. The spot goes on to showcase everything the game has to offer thanks to its Snowdrop Engine. The game will be enhanced by an advanced day/night cycle, supports volumetric lighting to add atmosphere, captures light realistically, reacts to constantly changing weather and more. It was boasts an advanced particle system that harness the power of next-gen technology.
While it’s a bold statement to be sure, Ubisoft certainly is trying to back it up with some of the stunning footage showcased.
