Tom Clancy's The Division, the next-gen shooter from Massive Entertainment that blew audiences away at E3 2013, still looks like one of the most beautiful games we'll see this year.
On paper Tom Clancy‘s The Division isn’t the most novel concept in the gaming world right now, but the Snowdrop engine that runs it is one element that has had fans salivating for the game’s release. Ever since footage of a car door closing set the internet on fire back at E3, The Division has been a glowing example of how gorgeous next-gen graphics can look, and a recent demo of the Snowdrop engine revealed just how powerful the system is.
Snowdrop’s physics, lighting and dynamic weather systems combine to make a stunning, photorealistic world for players to explore. Incredibly accurate and precise destruction, stunning lighting and a seemingly infinite depth of field are some of the most impressive aspects of the game’s visuals.
The newest screenshots published by Official PlayStation Magazine UK showcase some of the game’s breathtaking detail in high resolution.
“Tom Clancy’s The Division has players take the role of Division agents where they find themselves caught up in an epic conspiracy, forced to combat not only the effects of a manmade virus, but also the rising threat of those behind it.”
The Division is still gunning for a 2014 release despite supposed allegations from a Massive developer that the game will “never be able” to meet such an early deadline, and will be playable on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
