Let me start off by saying that I’m not entirely sure why this is a thing. Near as I can tell, someone was testing out a battle engine for a video game graphic system and wanted to show that they could render a bloody war with up to 15,000 participants in it. As to why they decided the best way to show this was through a battle between Santa and the penguins is beyond me. All I know is that The great Christmas War has begun!

Merry Christmas! Here’s 11,000 penguins VS 4000 Santa Clause’s. This video showcases some of the new features to the crowd rendering system. Units now navigate complex terrain, Bodies now pile up, movement and avoidance improved and smoothed.
