Episode 33

Today on Weather Geeks we dive into a world where extreme weather is the most dangerous game. Video games continue to push the bounds of depicting accurate atmospheric physics in virtual worlds. But how are these gaming “engines” built? How is weather recreated in a virtual world? We’ll get the answers from Gabriel Sassone and Jacques Kerner from Avalanche Studios, which recently released Just Cause 4, a game where weather is not only a main character but a core element of the story and how you play. The experience is amazing, the weather is realistic, and the process to get there is fascinating.
