Naughty Dog also talks about pacing the crazy set pieces and sequences.
the amount of detail naughty dog put into this game is crazy!
This game gonna set the bench mark next gen action adventure games. U4 gives me the same feeling U2 gave after its e3 showing. Hope they release special U4 ps4.
The animation and movement of drake are very impressive
At around the 5:00 mark the discussion shifts to drivable vehicles, first referencing the jet ski in DF, then mentioning the drivable jeep in UC4, then they slip in there "Sams got his motorcycle"....why would they mention an npc in that frame of reference? Could we open the game or have a section where we play as Sam on a motorcycle? After UC3s big surprise opening & TLOU giving control to Ellie, I'd have to assume this new trend would dictate that UC4 would have something similar. I'm calling it right now, we will control Sam at some point during the campaign. Sounds kinda inconsequential but every little bit of info regarding this game is like gold to me personally.
I love when they mess with the narrative using time and different perspectives so that would be cool. I personally think we will get some flashbacks to explain the backstory between Drake and Sam. There are clearly some important dynamics at work between them and it needs to be well detailed. I think the plot will end up being some kind of showdown between them maybe? Or at least some kind of tragedy will go down based on the title involving a third party.
@pivot Those are great ideas. I never even thought about the potential for the final battle in the game possibly being between the brothers....now that would be a gut wrenching finale that breaks the norm of what a boss battle has been up to this point. I can't think of another instance in gaming where it would actively break your heart to have to fight a character. I could definitely see something like that coming to fruition & lending some big emotional weight to the narrative. I bet you are right about a flashback involving the two as well...we heard in the initial reveal trailer that presumably Drake left Sam "to rot", so assuming they are still on that path, it would serve the game really well to potentially flash back to that perceived betrayal. I don't think ND would release this game & focus on that relationship so closely w/o diving into Sam's story head first and potentially letting us play as him at some point. Being the same team from TLOU, chances are high that Nate & Sam's relationship in the game will be as fleshed out as Joel & Ellie's was in that title. Really can't wait to see how it all pans out, it's certain to end on a bang with all of these stars aligned.
I've never had a problem with Uncharted's length. I actually like to replay Uncharted at least once a year because I just love this series. There are like 2000 people still playing U2 MP and U3 has still tons of people but it's friggin' unbalanced since it went F2P. They are still as fun as before. Here's hoping U4 multiplayer is good
Me neither, it's pretty much the perfect length for that type of game, isn't too short, but doesn't outstay it's welcome, to were the spectacle wears off. The pacing in Uncharted 2 was especially good, probably one of the reasons I like it so much.
Naughty gods wave your wand, do your magic
That's disappointing about game length. I was hoping these more open areas would add more gameplay. Edit: Not trying to be a negative nancy. Still super stoked for this, just was hoping the larger areas would add some length.
Have you ever played an Uncharted game ? The game length is great. About 10 hours. How is that disappointing for you ?
It's very good, but you don't get what he's saying (I was thinking the same thing). Uncharted is a great length in its linear state but combat in open areas can take a lot longer in most cases, so logic dictates that more combat = less amazing set pieces and stuff we love about Uncharted besides shooting guys if it's length is the same time, you know? Overall I'm not too worried about it :) it's gonna be good regardless
Yes 10 is great for super linear games, but because this appears to be a bit more opened up, I figured that would allow for more gameplay. Does that make sense?
@Peace_Love They said they are balancing combat/puzzle etc. time in the interview... @curtis Uncharted games were always 10-12 hours to beat.. and thats a good length.. sometimes too much is bad, you know.
@Peace_Love_and_FPS Actually the game length would describe the story campaign, depending on your play through the open areas, you will likely get more game time than others. But Uncharted games always had great suitable lengths anyway for their genre And if you listen to the interview instead of this headline that isnt so clear, they actually said each Uncharted iteration gets longer, and it will probably be the same here, so the headline is actually wrong
How long do you want it to be? a day? lol Plus, there are collectables... that will make me want to comeback. and of course the multiplayer! :) @curtis below.. I always beat uncharted games in a day :P I freaking take the day off for every game i am excited about lol
What I'd love is to not beat it in a day. But I realize that's unrealistic.
Well that really depends on you. If you explore and discover, then it might take you longer. Also this is just an estimate. They aren't very sure yet of the length. If it ends up anything like TLOU then That'd be great, not to mention the multiplayer added tons of value to the previous games. Also 8-12 hrs of campaing is not bad.
8-10 hours is short. I could play two hours a night and beat it in less than a week. That isn't a very good value. Not everyone likes online multiplayer either. I won't touch it. No psn plus here as MP is not my thing. Relying on MP to supplement a short campaign is disappointing.
@LamerTamer, 8-10 may be short, but I feel like those length of games are needed, because some of these games being so long have been intimidating for me. Especially going from one open world game to the next with crazy time sinks. I think it's excellent value as long as it was a damn good campaign and that I wouldn't mind going through it again and again at various points of my gaming gen. Some of these games now are too damn long XD.
@Tetsdah I am not saying it has to be a 200 hour open world game like The Glitcher 3, but 20-30 hours would be about good. If the game is good why would you want it over so fast and get jipped? There is no time limit so if the game lasts you a couple of weeks of gaming instead of two days why would that be bad? It isn't like a movie where you need to experience it all in one sitting. COD campaigns are short like that but that is COD which is MP focused, not a story based game like Uncharted is. All of this waiting and all of the hype and it is over that quick? As in "you win, big deal"?
@Lamer You really believe that Uncharted 4s campaign should be 20-30 hours? Your asking for to much. Just spend 10 hours with the single player and 20 hours with the multiplayer. That's what most people do with linear games like this.
It's pretty long. You could easily put 20 hours into just getting the trophies.
Was hoping for a longer game length. I finished the previous games usually in a day because they were that good I didn't want to stop. :-/
About 7-8 hours then. That's how much i clocked in during UC3 and GA. I don't remember how long i clocked in for UC2 and UC1.
I know I will be having some varied facial expressions playing this! HYPE! The Stealth gameplay gets me most excited!
Just a big fat grin on my mug when this game arrives. Naughty Dog are incredible, so very excited for this and earning 3 platinums again in the Drake Collection will be the perfect appetiser :)
Can't wait, having the 2 best developers in console gaming on the same console is damn impressive - Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog. The e3 Uncharted 4 and Horizon demo where the best things i have seen to come out of any next-gen console, and both games will release within 2016. I can't imagine God o War IV.
Man, I would do any thing just to see GOW IV.
I was expecting more along the length of TLOU (14-16 hours), but this is fine too.
I expected the length. I can't wait to see how good this game is going to look. I already saw the gameplay videos, but I can't wait to see the full product.
And They Say Quantum break has better graphics. The nerve!!. How many acclaimed games does remedy had vs. Naughty dog?? How many Graphics of the year award did Remedy had vs. Naughty dog?? It is acceptable if they say can have a fair competition but well, fanboys will be fanboys
Well now that you mention it one member of the team did kinda win an Academy Award: http://www.gameinformer.com...
