Want to see more of the Snowdrop engine behind Tom Clancy's The Division? I thought so.
Massive Entertainment is behind the engine, and the video feels like a recruitment pitch for artists. There's even a #JoinMassive hashtag at the end.
As with a lot of the new engine tech we've seen in recent years, the focus seems to be on making it easier for artists to exploit the technology. The latest engines allow for increasingly complex game worlds, but it's up to the artists to create those environments and bring them to life.
Boy, have they ever with Snowdrop. Some of the trailer's city and forest scenes are truly stunning.
The Division is due for release in the fourth quarter of this year. It's coming to the PC, and I can't wait to play it.
