At this weeks Game Developers Conference Ubisoft has been showcasing their new Snowdrop Engine again for developers to see in action, and has released a demonstration on YouTube for those of us that couldn’t make it to GDC this year.
The Snowdrop Engine is being built by Massive Entertainment for The Division game, and the video after the jump shows what you can expect from effects that will be in the game and powered by the Snowdrop Engine.
The Snowdrop Engine has being built to offer developers flexibility and has a dynamic interconnected structure that allows developers to quickly create assets and see how they will respond within the engine in real time. Enabling the developer to see their results in game and check wether it is working correctly and how they intended without any delay. Ubisoft explains a little more:
“Here’s the thing about game engines: They might not seem all that sexy… but without them you’d have a whole lot of nothing. Or, to put it another way: That lovely Ferrari you’ve been lusting over? Good luck taking it for a test drive without an engine inside.”
