Breaking Down the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End E3 Trailer

A wedding ring, a bible passage, some surprising things are hidden throughout the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End trailer and they point to a potentially dark end for the visibly aged Nathan Drake. (E3, Next-Gen, PS4, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End)

It's not often I am impressed by a games visuals, but this game looks good.

Was it real time or not?
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   315d ago
yes, real time in engine cut scene, It wasn't gameplay though obviously. The cutscenes will look just like that so graphics shouldn't be too far off considering ND's history.
Ninver  +   315d ago
not to mention they have almost a year possibly before launch to further tweek the graphics. that should be the least of our problems knowing ND and their history.

I guarantee it will look like that!

Why? Because if they couldn't they wouldn't target 1080p60fps, I would totally except 1080p30fps if it meant keeping this visual fidelity!

Im pretty sure it will be just like the Order. Cutscenes blend seamlessly into gameplay. The only thing that will change is the camera angles.
LOGICWINS  +   315d ago
It was in-engine so yes thats what the game will look like. Actually no, it will look better. This build is likely a month or a month in a half old.

"Was it real time or not?"

not exactly.

water and sand effects are way touched up, all of that running at 1080p 60 fps. keep dreaming.

Don't be a moronic fool. I know it's hard to believe, but that's Naughty Dog for you.

Here, I'll break it down for you!

Best graphics on any next gen game now and in the next three years, Uncharted 4 sets a new graphical benchmark, again!

if PP is roughly the same as GZ visually then it will not be that hard to beat though. I mean its a cross gen game with some shortcomings.

Kojima has very capable tech and amazing lighting for sure but polycounts on characters while passable are doable on 7th gen( GOW 3, beyond two souls etc), environments, and low fidelity foliage brings it down a lot. some textures too are kind of 7th gen ish.

MGS is amazing with all its brilliant lighting and facial capture, not to mention all the dynamics and ways to play. time and weather, particles and ligthing. its all good but overall not quite next gen. more like a taste. it is like those multipack cereal or something. you love some of it and want more and some is meh.


Now we wait for Kojima to drop the sligthly refined XL mix package.
and the next kojima game that is next gen only they will sort out all the old cornflakes for something more tasty.

Phantom Pain is gorgeus as it is and will rock my socks of. can not wait.

How are you wiping dust off of something you don't own?
bigboirock  +   314d ago
i do lol never really like playstation ip besides naughty dogs. what would make me play my ps4 more would be the likes of a new suikoden game or a legend of the dragoon. i wish the just went back to the good old ps1 days with classic rpgs
goldwyncq  +   315d ago
Will he be called Old Drake in this game?
q8kik  +   315d ago

Chaos_Raiden  +   315d ago
Totally awesome. Will be getting this game along with Infamous: Second Son and The Order: 1886 once I can afford a PS4.

wasnt the trailer only a min. whats to break down in a min trailer that only shows his face. they was better off analyzing another game. the people from journey game seemed interesting
LawofTD  +   315d ago
There was actually a good amount of blink and you'll miss it stuff in that 1 minute trailer. Mixed with the dialogue and there's a fair bit of exposition in the new trailer.
lunatic0001  +   315d ago
Could this be considered a trailer...it was more like a teaser...halo 5 and uncharted 4 had extremely short trailers that felt more like teasers..overall great conferences though...looking forward to great games on both consoles... Let's see what Nintendo brings tomorrow
Destrania  +   315d ago
Yeah, except Uncharted was running in real-time on PS4, and not a cgi video, so, there's that.

I can't wait! I'm dying to know more, but at the same time, I don't want any other info... it would simply make the day I fire up this game more satisfying!
duplissi  +   315d ago
Well done Sony, you have my attention, my excuse to finally get a PS4 (Moved to PC gaming a couple of years ago, but Naughty Dog will always have a place for me)
thecastroregime  +   315d ago
As much as I agree with this, I really hope this isn't the end for Nathan Drake :/
austinwgarcia  +   314d ago
I actually do hope that it is the final game for Uncharted. Just like it is going to be for Arkham Knight (in terms of Rocksteady). The finality brings a lot of weight to the game and will allow me to enjoy the series as a complete whole for years to come
Glitchy  +   315d ago
It took me a moment to realize this was Nathan Drake. This makes me want to finally get around to playing Uncharted.
austinwgarcia  +   314d ago
DO IT! They'll almost definitely release an Uncharted trilogy remake on PS4 before Uncharted 4 is released
ziggurcat  +   315d ago
i noticed the wedding ring, too...
James Vanderbeek  +   314d ago
naughty dog dont screw around so the game will look like this.
