Ubisoft uploaded a Snowdrop Tech Showcase video on their YouTube channel today. It shows how Massive Entertainment is using the engine to create Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, a game coming in 2022.
The team discusses specific Snowdrop features they’re using to create elements of Pandora. For example, using the microdata system to propagate thousands of assets in one frame or using ray tracing for light reflection from bioluminescence.
According to Ubisoft,
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is a first person, action-adventure game developed by Massive Entertainment – a Ubisoft studio, in collaboration with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney.
Built using the latest iteration of the Snowdrop engine, and developed exclusively for the new generation of consoles and PC, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora brings to life the alluring world of Pandora with all of its beauty and danger in an immersive, open world experience.
In this new, standalone story, play as a Na’vi and embark on a journey across the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen part of Pandora. Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters, and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it.
