The snow in the game is just as dynamic. it can accumulate on buildings and vehicles or be melted and removed from objects by the player. the snow has depth and can affect troop movements. Ice is also a factor in the game, it can affect troop movements but it can also be used as a weapon. it can collapse/be destroyed from underneath, dropping the opposition into freezing waters.
