This talk will present a novel technique for the rendering of surfaces covered with fallen deformable snow featured in Batman: Arkham Origins. Scalable from current generation consoles to high-end PCs, as well as next-generation consoles, the technique allows for visually convincing and organically interactive deformable snow surfaces everywhere characters can stand/walk/fight/fall, is extremely fast, has a low memory footprint, and can be used extensively in an open world game. We will explain how this technique is novel in its approach of acquiring arbitrary deformation, as well as present all the details required for implementation. Moreover, we will share the results of our collaboration with NVIDIA, and how it allowed us to bring this technique to the next level on PC using DirectX 11 tessellation.
