The Division – Ubisoft reveals new trailer for high-end Snowdrop Engine

Is it just me, or are game studios around the world starting to market their in-house engines more since the start of 2013? Not wanting to be left out of the race, Ubisoft revealed a new trailer for its Snowdrop Engine, where the first game will be Tom Clancy’s The Division.


The Division is described as a “massively multiplayer online-esque open-world role-playing game”, and it is scheduled for a late 2014 release. A mobile companion app will also be launched, where players can still assist their friends in killing enemies.


From Wikipedia: In the game, a disease that spreads on Black Friday causes the United States to collapse in five days. The player is part of a group called “Strategic Homeland Division (SHD)”, called “Division” for short.

This group was established to combat the threat and do whatever it takes to “save what remains” in a massive multiplayer online situation, putting them against friends, AI, and other players.
