The Division’s VGX trailer shows off Snowdrop engine

A new trailer for massively multiplayer role-playing shooter Tom Clancy's The Division shows off the capabilities of the game's Snowdrop engine.

The video above explains how the game's environments are impacted by a "dynamic" day and night cycle. The Division will also feature a light probe system to capture light realistically, procedural destruction for in-game objects and changing environmental factors.

The Division was announced during E3 2013 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game takes place in New York after the country has been thrown into anarchy due to a pandemic.
