Ubisoft Massive’s new Snowdrop Engine is driving its upcoming game, “Tom Clancy’s The Division.” And to get a sense of how powerful the engine is, watch the demo trailer shared at E3 2014 that clearly shows how Snowdrop makes “The Division” a “future-forward experience,” writes Xbox Wire.
E3 2014, held this week, was “incredibly special,” writes Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, in a blog post. “We saw amazing games from innovative creators, developed for Xbox, Sony and Nintendo. Some people have asked who ‘won’ this week and the answer is simple – the gamers. It’s wonderful to see our industry healthy and delivering what we all want – great games.”
At E3 2014, the demo for “Battlefield Hardline” showed that the cops-and-robbers dynamic of the game “changes the flavor of it all,” writes Xbox Wire. “There’s something different about a war scenario versus a heist, even if ultimately your goals (shoot everyone, deliver package) are the same.”
The premise of “Hyper Light Drifter,” an ID@Xbox project shown at E3 2014, will no doubt appeal to fierce and honorable loner types. “As a citizen of a world of forgotten technology, the Drifter has access to long-lost tools, giving him powers beyond the scope of the normal inhabitants,” writes Xbox Wire.
Call it a confidence booster, call it an edge, but “Killer Instinct: Season 2” has been designed to let new players feel powerful right away, a developer from Iron Galaxy Games told Xbox Wire during an exclusive preview at E3 2014.
Based on early footage of “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege,” screened at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, the game has new features that “should make any shooter fan stand up and take notice,” writes Xbox Wire.
