Ubisoft On The Division's Destruction: "The destruction effect is not pre-baked in the game"

DSOGaming writes: "Tom Clancy's The Division looks sexy as hell and today Ubisoft revealed some new information about its Snowdrop engine. According to the French company, the destruction system is procedural and real-time, and nothing is pre-baked or pre-computed." (PC, PS4, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Xbox One)

My only question is does it stay destroyed or does it reset itself when you leave the area?
I hope it stays destroyed.
jahfen83  +   232d ago
I'm guessing it won't stay destroyed, because people would level entire cities and there would be no more buildings to enter.
Excalibur  +   232d ago
Well we may or may no have the ability to level whole buildings, just damage them or things around them, I haven't seen anything about that one way or the other.

This game is going to look great in 1080p on the PS4.
irepbtown  +   231d ago
This game (so far) looks great even without the destruction however that is seriously the icing on the cake.

A cake which I'm craving.

RIP Tom Clancy

even though most of the games were bad, this one might not be. looks to be pretty impressive so far n stuff
Caleb_H  +   231d ago
Am I the only one that thinks that would be awesome? Maybe you could rebuild those destroyed buildings with supplies or something.
inveni0  +   231d ago
It would be cool if the destruction would reset weekly. I know people could totally wreck a city, but it might be cool to at least have the destruction hand on for a little while so that the effects of a battle could have a lasting feel.

Is the game footage from pc or ps4 ? This looks like its running on high end but I may be wrong
sigfredod  +   232d ago
It was pc footage, but i know ps4 version will not be that far behind, will be very close to this
cyguration  +   232d ago
If E3 was anything to go by... it was on PC.
dragon82  +   231d ago
The gameplay video from the Ubisoft E3 conference was shown on a PS4.
KRUSSIDULL  +   232d ago
It's an online open world RPG. And with the with dedicated servers (cloud) it could stay destroyed at least for a while. It's just a simple save file the game can load. Skyrim does this with dead bodies and items stay in place for 7 days in-game time.
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   232d ago
I did not know that about Skyrim, really cool
Dasteru  +   232d ago
Tell that to my copy of Skyrim, bodies disappear instantly upon entering a different area. I can kill someone right next to a door and then go through the door and back and the body will be gone.

I'm betting it'll be similar to Infamous Second Son; where certain landmarks stay destroyed.
theDivision  +   232d ago
They have said there is a limit to the destruction caused, so you won't not be able to shoot a buildings foundation until it collapses. Though they haven't said anything about regeneration.
rocky047586  +   231d ago
Lol, that's what "prebaked" means. It means that it's not just there for you to destroy only for you to come back to it and it's actually still there.
deecee33  +   231d ago
This looks FULLY next gen. Story sounds cool too. Hopefully they'll have second editions of the consoles for sale when it releases.
raresteak  +   232d ago
Dat graphics and physics fidelity. Bona fide next-gen material.
So far they have only shown this running on ps4.

I remeber when devs used to always show the 360 version of games. lol times have changed quickly.

I hope the new trailer was not pc version.
JeffGUNZ  +   232d ago
I thought they already said in previous interviews it would be running the same on each console. I can't wait for this game, is their a concrete launch date?
lets_go_gunners  +   232d ago
They showed it on ps4?
jackanderson1985  +   232d ago
i thought Ubisoft and Rockstar always showed their games only on Sony consoles due to a marketing deal put in place?
seanpitt23  +   232d ago
Yeah they have only shown ps4 footage and that was done at E3.
Callediceman  +   232d ago
Iam PUMPED for this game!
Douchebag696  +   232d ago

ramiuk1  +   232d ago

I'm feeling the same way, but 28 years lol
Lukas_Japonicus  +   232d ago
I feel the same way, i want to let my hype grow and take me over but im weary if the final product is going to be anywhere near as good as this looks so far.

Fingers crossed. Just look at the picture for this article....the amount of litter, the snow, the lighting, the attention to detail. Amazing.

the video and the things they was showing brought a tear to my eye,i had a twitch in my pants when the snow melted!!

be amazing if it was 1080p.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   232d ago
@ramiuk1

It will most definitely be 1080p, the question we should be asking is if it will be 60fps.....im thinking it will probably be 30fps on consoles (which is fine for me with this kind of game), but 60fps would be nice.
Fizzgig  +   232d ago
I agree, and I've been on the earth almost 35 years!
HaveAsandwich  +   231d ago
33, and i havnet been this stoked since the ps1. what are all these old people doing here..... :D

Hopefully this game won't get downgraded on the next gen consoles
dmeador  +   232d ago
So I was thinking before this that it went a different way than the zombie post-apocalypse, but at the end you can see a sign warning of a contagious disease beyond this point
gwumper987  +   232d ago
Its not a zombie game. It is set a ciuple weeks after a LETHAL viral infection begins to spread through major centers. People die, not turn in to zombies.
MatrixxGT  +   232d ago
Interesting. Kinda tired of the zombie thing personally.
plaZeHD  +   232d ago
I don't know, looks too good to be true. Well we will see.
DanielGearSolid  +   232d ago
I gotta find an hd download of this trailer. Cause on the live stream it didnt look THAT good
webeblazing  +   232d ago
I agree mostly due 2 poor video streaming game do look fun as hell
Qrphe  +   232d ago
This game will look close to what it is now but PS4 but dont expect it to look as good else dissapointment will ensue
RE_L_MAYER  +   232d ago
dont bother with graphics, look at the gameplay-shooting/taking cover/walking around feels badass and finally my favourite gun kriss super v in a game other than call of duty
quenomamen  +   232d ago
This game will show what next gen is capable of , yet all the Bros are all moist for Call Of Titanfall which I think will be using the same tired modified Quake engine from Call It Doodie.
TRD4L1fe  +   232d ago
where does TitanFall come into all this? a little off topic. you comment shouldve stopped after the next gen capable.
