The Last of Us Part II Creative Director Neil Druckmann talks about possibilities for Naughty Dog's next games, and a third-person perspective is not set in stone.
It'll be interesting what they do next here's hoping they do Savage Starlight, I would love to see another sci-fi game from them( if you count Jak and Daxter)
A Savage Starlight Fps game? O.o
Game hasn’t started development and Naughty Doge already has my money
These people are the new Valve, but they are willing to break record numbers <- see what I did there
I don't see it either. What do you mean?
new valve ??? lol not even close
User @IHassounah is the only one who got it.... NaughtyDog does go make a 4th game sometimes ie Uncharted 4
A PS5 launch title most likely, if not coming in at the last moment of the current generation. I am sure whatever they do it will be interesting, and most likely third-person, but given Sony's push on VR I wouldn't rule it out either.
Naughty Doge only develop games for consoles. That’s why you never saw a ND game on PSP or Vita.
@AspiringProGenji You´re probably right. But it´s not a rule set in stone.
uncharted golden abyss was for psp..
@rpvenom Golden Abyss was developed by Bend Studios
I think ot actually is. I remember one interview where they say they only develop games for consoles and not any other kind of devices like portable
Golden Abyss was not PSP, it was Vita. Also what Dialga said
Naughty Dog. No "e"
@ rpvenom... Golden Abyss was not done by Naughty Dog.
Agreed. I think this brings up a very pressing issue on the Gaming Community that they are many gamers that literally don't even know who makes their games. This is something that's more prevalent in this community than other mediums. Seriously if you look it up you'll have Gamers that are angry at Publishers for something a developer does or angry at the release of a remaster ignoring that the original team doesn't often even work on those not even knowing outright who's really making the version of a game they're playing. So it makes you question how uneducated is the typical gamer regarding their own medium?
my bad, my assumptions get the better of me as usual lol
It will release well into next gen
Don’t even joke about that Naughty Dog
Exactly, I would love to see what they can do in First Person... or hell maybe they have a completely new person we have never seen lol.
I always feel third person is more immersive, weird but true for me. If you are telling a story, I like to see the character who is actually part of the story. There are a few first person games that the character we controlled grabbed me. I can't imagine Uncharted being in First person. That view would totally ruin the whole immersion for me. Of course, it is a small thing but when a developer WANTS to tell a story, I like to actually know what the main character looks like. I like to see them, and in first person, it also feels robotic compared to third person. I am playing Wolfenstein and that game is so robotic compared to other games.
@Eonjay "or hell maybe they have a completely new person we have never seen lol." I agree. XD
@madforaday That´s depends on the genre of the game. I agree with you when comes to story driven games. That said, i would rather play a survival horror by Naughty Dog fps than third person any day. For this kind of games, fps is far more realistic and terrifying. P.T. comes to mind. O.o
I feel kingdom come suffers from not having a 3rd person but it isn't a deal breaker but I understand. I have a friend who won't play KCD because of no 3rd view..
@Obscure_Observer "For this kind of games, fps is far more realistic and terrifying. P.T. comes to mind. O.o" The irony here being that Silent Hills was going to be a third person game, and with good reason. There isn't a horror game in existence that is as immersive as Silent Hill 2.
It will be easier to access the loot boxes this way..
so you want the same stale third-person action games with stealth over and over again ??? come on the need to innovate and not stagnate
I would be totally down for whatever they make. Wouldn't mind a platformer from them like the old days.
Then I don't want it, I hate first person games, I hope that this is not true else I'm gonna forced to skip whatever they plan to make.
Lmao! Calm down, man. It Could be an RTS, Card, Racing, Platform, Fighting, Sport, Pinball, or a Fishing game.
How do you hate a game you never knew existed simply because of pov?
Because some people dislike first-person that much and I guess that's why he reacted like he did. Myself? I also hate first-person and would not play that game. I would however, stream it. First-person games, suck on console, in my opinion. Glad for the ones that do like it, because then I can watch instead ;)
Easy, I won't play most fps games either.
Zabatsu same here, like how I never interest in Bioshock but for some reason I put in so much hour in Skyrim. So I wouldn't totally skip but I prefer a third person view more or have an option to switch between view.
@Zab/@jack - except what you're simply describing is the perspective you're actually not really describing the actual game, the quality ,The Narrative, the gameplay elements or really anything to have more clear information regarding this. So for me I can't really say I hate first person games because that's so extremely vague it's not even funny you're basically saying you're going to cheat yourself out of an experience. So I would say overall regardless of perspective any game could be bad at any time. I dislike Bad Games, their perspective is actually irrelevant to me.
Same Unless its VR I might not buy it. Hopefully its third pers
BlahBlahWhatever--- what's your PSN ID
Well... I’m pretty sure of one thing: if they don’t even know the perspective yet, it’s not a 2018 release. Bummer, but I can wait for them. They’ll do it right and that’s more important.
Clearly this game doesn’t have a 2018 release because it’s not even being developed yet.
As always, just dumb clickbait headlines on n4g. BUT, if true, that would be so fucking awful. There is nothing more pathetic and bad than first person view. Please, ND, please, don't be a loser and continue the best view in games.
That wouldn't be a good idea imo, one of the main important aspects of the first one is the deep interaction with the characters and what I mean is see them all the time, seeing the character in third person you can see how perfectly blends with the environment and that is a very very important aspect of the game.
Im so glad these sony companies understand the effectiveness of changing things up after 2 or 3 entries in an i.p.. I believe uncharted was able to make 6 games in the series (1,2,3,4,ga,ll) because it gave gamers what they wanted. Had uc2 not been as widely commercially successive they prob would have made a new i.p. then and changed up the formula. Once a game has been done so many times without changing the core mechanics of the i.p. interests in that genre will taper off as time goes on unless that game is widely accepted. Look at geow4 and halo 5, them i.p.s have been the same reashed thing over and over again. If geow5 and halo 6 are just more of the same, ms will prob run into an issue where those games are even less well recieved than their last entry in the series.
You clearly never played Halo. The halo story is far from over and has a deep lore to claim the games are rehashing.....lol go to halowaypoint. Some Halo fans wishing and hoping they do and upset it's not rehashing the same thing over. Btw Halo 5 made more money than 4. That fact ND milked 4-6 games out of Uncharted, a game with little back story yet you find 5 games of Halo too much xD arguably a gaming franchise that has the deepest story and roots plus a ton of mp content that makes it more than just a fps, compared to a curious adventurer....lol
No need to get upset, and all up in arms... ive played all halo games and if you think halo is as popular now as it was during the halo 2 era youre severely mistaken. But again its my opinion. Also, this is a sony article... no need for your rant about xbox. I was only stating geow and halo because their last series was even less popular, well recieved, and commercially unsuccesful than the prior one. Uc4 sold more than halo5, geow4, halo wars 2, recore, quantum break, sunset overdrive, and luckys tail... thats 1 game sold better than 7... these are hard facts i know no xbox cheerleader wants to here i know... if a game is still commercially successful, its not considered "milked" and even then sony was smart enough to stop uncharted after uc4 and prob move on after tlou 2. That is all and have a nice day.
Considering Halo 3 was more popular I think it's safe to say yes Halo is more popular than it was than the no digital, 20 million sold og Xbox era. You're the one that brought up Xbox games not me. Oh you wanted to use games that have declined retail sales but ignore the higher digital sales something that not accounted for, basically non existent during og xbox time and nearly as popular way to buy games on Xbox as retail physical...... Wouldn't a better game to use be idk GT sport? Or SF? No it didn't, Halo 5 sold over 5 million at retail in under a month. 8 million in 5. Uc4 did outsell those new ips though as well as bloodborne, the order, knack like a top franchise on it's 4th main installment should. ROFL he said a game that successful isnt considered milked. No milk is milk because it's successful you don't stop a money maker. If it's doing poorly why would you continue to make it and lose/make little money? That comment shows your intelligence. You stop a game when you have no where else to go with the story, not selling, or simply have a vision for another game. #GetEducated
All games are soon i first person.. Must find another thing to do than play games in the future.
There's not enough first person games this generation. So it'd be interesting to see them try it once.
Great i love first person games, alot more in contact with the world around me that way.
I love Naughty Dog, but if this implies the next game would be first person, I'd have to skip on it. That news wouldn't upset me since they've always done great work and I'm sure it'd be great. I just don't care for first person and I always feel somewhat ill after playing for an hour and a half.
Could be a ‘VR experience’ between big AAA for all we know. But pretty sure whatever perspective they make their next game it’ll be great.
I much prefer 3rd person games, but I'd love to see Naughty Dog's take on a 1st person narrative-driven game.
Plz no FPS, the market is already saturated with that shit.
On the contrary, there's too much third person, open world games this generation. Where's my Half-Life and BioShock type games? There's been very few story driven FPS's this generation. Doom, Wolfenstein, Dishonored, Deus Ex, Fallout, Dying Light and the upcoming Metro are a few worthy titles but there's simply not enough of them this generation.
I know what is set in stone though... It will be cinematic AF and have an ultra slow/sappy story. He doesn’t know how to make anything else. And to be fair, why would he with the way y’all eat that crap up?
TLoU and Uncharted are highly regarded titles in the industry for far more than just their excellent Stories.
Oh really? Like what? I’m honestly curious. I think Uncharted 4 is easily the worst game in the franchise. I’m indifferent on TLOU, not my style.
Lets see - animation, lighting, seamless gameplay to cut scene and vice versa, the tech in U4 and Lost Legacy is the industry standard. There isn't too many developers out there that can pull that stuff off, especially on PS4/Pro.
I will give you Uncharted 4 animations. Top notch stuff. The “seamless cut scene to gameplay” stuff I couldn’t disagree more. They completely ruined the pacing. Lost legacy is my 2nd favorite uncharted game funny enough because they nailed the pacing with different directors.
The multiplayer in both UC4 and TLoU are easily some of the best in the industry.
Lol again with your silly words like 'pacing'. A fancy way of saying gameplay is all that matters. Just buy a switch dude, substance clearly doesn't matter to you. But saying the lost legacy was better than Uncharted 4 is beyond laughable.
I didn’t make up the word pacing bro lmao. Its the tempo, the rhythm of the game. The balance between gameplay and other features. It’s a real thing and it’s not a fancy way of saying anything else. Lost legacy takes a hot steamy dump on uncharted 4. I laugh just as hard at anyone that says otherwise. Lost legacy turned TERRIBLE characters like Nadine and Sam into likeable characters. Druckmann is better as a writer than a director.
In games, the substance is the gameplay.
I'd rather not have Naughty Dog do first person. I'm always used to seeing the backs of their characters in games.
