VGX 2013: Tom Clancy’s The Division Shows Off Gameplay Engine


At the VGX 2013 awards, we have seen a lot of trailers so far for 8th generation gaming. Tom Clancy’s The Division looks far and above the most visually-pleasing, and today they revealed a trailer showing off the game in a new next-gen gameplay engine.

It’s how the game works that makes The Division so beautiful. The engine will allow for a night-and-day time cycle, which shows the passage of time in a realistic fashion. The environment can also be destroyed, which can be affected by your gunfire and explosives. Objects like cars and walls were featured heavily in the trailer, especially after getting shot at.

What made The Division’s visuals so impressive was the weather. The advanced particle system gave AI to each dropping snowflake, which reflects well off of light. Material shaders showed off how the weather could change over time. Just like Watch Dogs, Ubisoft continues to knock it out of the park.

Tom Clancy’s The Division comes out on PS4, Xbox One and PC late 2014. Here’s the trailer!
