Uncharted 4 Lead Programmer Really Loves PS4: Goal Is to Make the Game Look Better than the Trailer

The good folks at Naughty Dog have given proof of their skills once more with Uncharted 4: A Thief‘s End’s trailer that impressed pretty much everyone at Sony’s press conference, even more so considering that it was fully in-engine.
One of the men behind the beauty of that video is Lead Programmer Christian Gyrling, who expressed his undying love for the console he’s working on. (Christian Gyrling, PS4, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End)

There is someone seriously BUTTHURT FANBOYS to disagree with your statement .

"The Order and Uncharted 4 are setting another standard in the graphic department this generation"

Haters that disagree with that how ! please name these games with better GRAPHICS than The Order or Uncharted because I have not seen them.

Those other consoles are to weak for graphic like that their last gen 2.0 weak . The gap is gots starting to show .

I didn't know how ND could top the graphic in the Order but they did amazing . you haters must can't bring you'er self to watch the trailer of the Order or Uncharted. Becaus anyone with eyes can see their graphic are The next level true next gen.

First the HATERS xoxo boys said UC4 was CGI found out that it's in game engine. Now it's just cut scenes keep moving the goal post ND going to kick the DAM football out the stadium.

Well, they can make the thing run at 1080/60fps, 30fps is a ok, but 60fps whit this graphics is just lol! amazing!

I cant see how the game could look better, I mean what can they do to make that look better ? I really dont think its gets any better but colour me surprised if they some how break the laws of physics and do it.

Yep, pretty much. Raising the bar again.

I have to so, though, that I'm surprised that Ready At Dawn, a relatively small studio that worked mostly on PSP games, is now bringing something like The Order 1886 to the gaming world. THAT, to me, is the biggest surprise.

Not to diminish Naughty Dog's accomplishments, because they are amazing, but most of us could have predicted Uncharted 4 would be another bar-raising game from them. On the other hand I would have NEVER expected something of the caliber of The Order 1886 from Ready At Dawn on their first PS4 game, despite their great work on the PSP God of War games. It's one of the more pleasant surprises of this new generation.

With Sony's first party this gen we'll be seeing a lot of 'captured directly from a PS4' because otherwise nobody would believe that what they're seeing isn't cgi. Incredible.

I love how silent PC graphics elitists have been though(typing on my gaming laptop).
I said PS4 games could look as good or better than most PC games for a while, but at around 1080p. I got disagrees and rude remarks. I figured I'd let the games do the talking.
They don't wan't to doubt ND either because they know they'll be eating their words again.

"I love how silent PC graphics elitists have been though(typing on my gaming laptop)."

You must be looking in the wrong place because I've seen tons of PC guys commenting. Personally I think it looks great. I just think other games are much more impressive. Games like Witcher 3, Division, the new Batman, etc that have amazing scale,gameplay, and graphics. Stick Witcher 3 in a linear tightly controlled corridor, shrink the size of the world by 99%, shrink gameplay hours by about 192 hours, limit gameplay to swing sword&jump, and you'll have a game that looks just as good if not better.

It's a fact. . Look at @sorane lol a PC elitist who has the balls to say that the wicher 3 looks better lol it looks bad and far way more inferior than uncharted 4.. I do agree Batman looks amazing (I bet it will not look that amazing on my ps4 and if it does I will get it day 1) but Uncharted 4 level of quality is still far superior. In the end they are different experiences and Batman and uncharted are amazing games no meters what or which one looks better. .

But the wicher 3 look like is a generation behind those two games in term of Graf and quality. .
Destrania  +   199d ago

Um, The Witcher 3 looks incredible and will certainly be a great epic-scale rpg. Cool thing is I can play that as well as Uncharted on my PS4. Win-win.
sorane  +   199d ago

Are you really trying to call someone else a fanboy? I'm surprised you haven't changed your name legally to Cerny yet. Now you're gonna say Witcher 3 "lol it looks bad and far way more inferior than uncharted 4" haha I find that just laughable.

"But the wicher 3 look like is a generation behind those two games in term of Graf and quality." hahahaha yeah ok I'd love to see what U4 would look like if it even had 1/100th of the things going on as the Witcher 3. Seeing how ND still doesn't have a game released that looks as good as the Witcher 2 I have no doubt that the Witcher guys could make a short tight linear corridor "cinematic" game that looks just as good if not better.
Imalwaysright  +   199d ago
Batman and The Witcher 3 are much more ambitious games than Uncharted will ever be. Add to that the fact that CD RED and Rocksteady have to spread their budget and resources for 3 platforms while ND just have to focus on 1. I guarantee you, if CD was making the Witcher 3 exclusively for PC it would easily surpass Uncharted 4 graphical fidelity.

Not really. If others developers has the same freedom and budget ND has, they would've done better (or equal) job.
By that I am referring to Square's developers and specially Nomura.

Yeah, I agree, but it's not a huge difference to me. It would go something like this for me:

All amazing games, though.

ABizzel1  +   199d ago
Which is exactly why the last 2 Uncharted's and the Last of Us had extremely steady framerates, and the Uncharted's were lock at 30fps, and why they're aiming for 60fps with UC4.
starchild  +   199d ago
I just hope that if they shoot for 60fps they actually manage to achieve a solid 60fps. And if it fluctuates below that I hope they will give us the option to cap it at 30fps the way Infamous Second Son and Killzone SF did.

But you are right, the Uncharted games had very steady framerates. And TLOU, while it didn't have as steady a framerate as Uncharted 2, for example, it wasn't too bad overall.

I'm sure Naughty Dog will give us very satisfactory performance or different options to suit different preferences.

I'm not doubting them, they and Santa Monica are the best first party developers Sony has, but a lot of other developers don't grasp the concept that even if the game looks photo-realistic, if it plays like a slideshow the effort has gone to shit.

We've had a lot of that going around in the PS3 era.

Lol. And you care....why, exactly? It's not as if you'll be playing it, or any other of their games. Why are you even commenting here? You must still be feeling the hurt on your butt from the UC4 reveal and the following news of it being in-engine, realtime, running on a single PS4.

Linear games are what ND do, and they do them better than anyone else. That's like saying to Bethesda: "no open world games please".

I wonder if you're going to say the same thing in Gears Of War 4 articles, or Ryse 2 articles? Probably not. Linear games aren't acceptable when they're PS4 exclusives, that look better than anything else shown, amirite?

Didn't read the article for the sake of possible flamebait material, so I'll dip my poo into the pool.

It'll be impossible to make it look than the trailer.

If "they're" talking about the final code/game/release, then I buy it. But "game(play)"-wise, it isn't possible unless they made the trailer look worse than it does now (gameplay-wise) and the "trailer" might not include all the gameplay video we need to debate this 'trailer vs. game' comparison.

It's not worth the +100 comments.
dane123  +   198d ago
Do you have any relevant expertise or knowledge in programming or coding? Or just full of shit?

If they say they CAN do it , means they can. They aren't other companies showing cgi's just for the sake of attention to get more sales, this is ND you're talking here, just take a comparison of Ucharted 1 & TLoU & see the difference.

Actually I don't really believe them 100% too, at the end of it you just have to wait & see.
Me-Time  +   198d ago
Uncharted and TLOU were last generation and on the PS3. This gen, with the X1 and PS4, we won't see the kinds of graphical leaps that translated over the course of last gen's development. It can be seen where things can improve, but we're in a time where visual (gameplay) graphics on PC's have been reaching that limit of technical possibilities.

I don't agree with the sentiment that X1/PS4 are PC's from 2010 or whatever. On the contrary of what you may think I think, once developers can tap into this generation of game consoles' technological limits/possibilities, then we'll get to see what ND can achieve. I'm really not saying that ND isn't good enough to do what amazing work they did with Uncharted on the PS3; in other words, live up to their name. I'm merely saying in this comment (to your reply) that it isn't possible this early after the PS4's release to have belief in the goal - which is pretty much the endgame - they have set for themselves.

Yes, UC 4 won't release for another year, give or take. But, that still isn't enough time to make the gameplay look better than the trailer. They've ventured on this path of creating stunning-looking gameplay, undoubtedly, but... just no; UC 4 will not look better than its trailer.
