Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Naughty Dog has talked quite a bit about how the PlayStation 4’s power helped bring the vision of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End to life. Speaking to SKNR, community strategist Arne Meyer shared a few more details about some of the visual improvements the hardware allowed for.

“There are far too many things to list! Not to mention many things we can’t talk about right now, either. We saw a glimpse of what was possible with games on the PS4 when we developed The Last of Us Remastered and we were excited with what we could do when fully focused on developing a game from the ground up for the system.

“We’ve been able to do all the expected things – an increase in resolution to 1080p from the previous generation, increased polygon count for our models, more advanced shader techniques, new and expanded gameplay mechanics, and so on. Our cinematic scenes are now rendered in real-time.”

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was one of the highlights of E3 2015 with its gameplay and will be launching in 2016. What are your thoughts on how it currently looks? Let us know belwo.

    Just like the Xbox allowed 1080p for Forza 6 and Horizon with 4x MSAA advanced AA Techniques.

      Yea, but apparently when Sony does it, its special…. lol Get the game to run 60FPS singe player and then i’ll be impressed, naughty dog. Lots of games are 1080p.

    • Michael Norris

      Sorry but uncharted 4 looks to be the best looking game on any of these ”next gen” consoles.

    • Michael

      Yea, “looks to be the best” but running at half the frames of other titles. You guys will never learn. When is ps4 going to show it can get a exclusive at 60FPS?

    • Icaraeus

      Naughty Dog mentioned Uncharted 4 could have been 60fps for SP with a delay.

    • Michael

      Yea, they would need to downgrade the graphics with that” delay”… lol Just face it PS4 isn’t as powerful as Sony fanboys think. While uncharted looks good its still the same old linear gameplay, They still aren’t on Rockstar’s level.

    • Icaraeus

      No, they would NOT need to downgrade the game. Uncharted 4 is NOT linear. Clearly you’ve never seen any of the demos. You’re right, they’re BEYOND Rockstar’s level

      Why are you Xbox drones so pathetic?

      Xbox One exclusives don’t run at 60 frames you tard. Halo 5 runs at 720p and doesn’t even maintain 60 frames. Forza 5 was severely downgraded with cardboard cuttout crowds and trees.

      Have your head checked.

    • michael

      You wish pony. Sony doesn’t have any exclusives that run 1080 60gps. I guess that bank account must be dryer than we thought. 3 Forza games 2 Forza games at 1080p 60gps plus Horizon. Sony only has DriveDud which was delayed a year and still has crappy frame rates.That is for the pony players…lol

    • Starman

      looooooooooooooooooooooll!! that linear ‘p o s’ 1990’s gameplay style and crazy frame rate issues .. at e3 i thought it was the remaster to u3 until they said uc4 ..lmao what a fkn jk….

    • Zach Naim

      XONE fanboy right there

    • Michael Norris
    • Michael Norris

      They had to cut corners to get that 4x MSAA

    • freekface

      Forza 6 has cut NO corners it looks amazing and at 1080P 60FPS and they have now confirmed they have done it “without” the help of Direct x 12.

      The PS4s CPU bottleneck is never going to do it unless they cut massive corners.

    • Starman

      just be quiet , you’re looking really suspect right now…
