    Will this be the engine that launched a thousand bad stories?

    3D graphics finally not giving the horrible uncanny valley feeling? Looks promising.

    With that amount of detail, I can see the budget tripling from the current-gen budget.

    Don't know how they can pull this off without years of work and hundreds of programmers.

    Good ol' NEXTGEN: 90% on graphics, 10% on gameplay.

    This would be exciting if it weren't just going to be used for generic mass-marketable shit.

    Impressive engine, the melting snow, the muddy slush on the roads... looks a good environment to scatter the fragmented remains of my enemy in. If I don't see the early morning rays of light peering through the ragged bulletholes I left in a mutated New Yorker's forehead moments before he crumples to the ground I'm going to let Ubisoft know of my disappointment via their community forums.

    No mention of a SDK. Which is a pity. It might allow a fraction of the people already complaining about an unreleased game and engine to produce a mod of their own, one that allows them to illustrate their superior :obviously: taste and creativity.

    The material destruction and lighting make me want to see a remake of F.E.A.R. in Snowdrop.

    Too bad it's Ubisoft, so the PC version will barely run.
