In a new video from GDC 2014, Massive Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, discusses the power of the Snowdrop engine; Massive’s in-house answer to video game creation on the new generation of consoles. Snowdrop supports the philosophy of the studio to work better, not bigger, by giving content creators the freedom to experiment, prototype and truly unleash their creativity.

It might sound a little strange that a studio called Massive is not striving to make their games massive, but quality is always better than quantity, and the video above makes me very excited for The Division, which is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, in Q4 2014.
