It has the most advanced physics system I ever saw. Even grain bags that protect ou from nuclear bombs in any other game without them getting any scratch, now In Uncharted 4 they get pierced by balls and grains leak through the holes which empties the bags thus making you less protected. This little detail has never been done before. I can enumerate all the fancy physics details but it would be longer than the video itself. Really amazing job.

Game looks amazing day one buy for sure. Has all the action and hilarious banter of the previous games as well as what seems to be flawless and fluid gameplay.

Only down side, definitely seems like a pretty large downgrade from this:
I know other feel otherwise though:

@geniune yes ... you caught me... it certainly had nothing to do with the fact that no part of that demo looked as good as the e3 2014 footage. certainly not.

@ratchet last guardian was not impressive in any aspect IMO, how that relates to this comment or article, who knows. Also a downgrade is a downgrade since when do you guys defend tjem? There have been xpuntless articles chastising them.

Not only that my most anticipated game shown was horizon, no doubt, so some bias I must have, in fact, I watched Sony's E3 before watching xbox's (watching now) ... the reality is I am not a blind follower like some and don't have to hold some unrealistic double standards to make myself feel better.

Also, I am not insulting the game, as truly graphics aren't that important. I just think downgrades are stupid, and specifically saying a trailer is 60fps in engine running on a PS4 when it clearly wasn't is stipid.

Genuine-User1312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

What you posted isn't gameplay. And since you have posted this the second time, it seems as if you have some sort of a hidden an agenda.

SniperControl1312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

Oh here we go, with the downgrade crap, that looked amazing, best graphics of any game showed at any conference.

Even beat Horizon, that is a feat in itself.

Day one for me, no hesitation.

Rimeskeem1312d ago

Oh shut up about downgrades. The physics were amazing, Sully is amazing, the driving was amazing, the combat was amazing, the graphics were still amazing. Should I go on?

Ezz20131312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

You are trying too damn hard

The game look freaking amazing fact i think this is the best looking game i have seen on consoles soo far
The gameplay was incredible
and no amount of downplaying will change that

Sony truly give me the best E3 i have seen in a while

Bathyj1312d ago

Cant help yourself can you? Nice complinsult.

super_bruno1312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

Man this game is awesome. This one sealed the deal for me, Sony had the best showing this year

Germany71312d ago

I really feel sorry about that post, first you have said that The Last Guardian it's not impressive, and now trying to prove a downgrade that doesn't exist.
Looks like you are in denial about a great conference made by Sony, but don't worry, Microsoft did it well too, but Sony still did it better.

kneon1312d ago


To be fair Horizon is open world so it's now worth comparing.

Crimzon1312d ago

I was disappointed in the initial Uncharted 4 gameplay reveal and agreed with the people who viewed it as a downgrade from what was initially shown with the explicit claims of being "in engine" and misleading people.

Having said however, the gameplay demo that they showed at the end of Sony's E3 conference just now is hands-down the most impressive gameplay footage I've ever seen for a game. Seeing the huge amount of detail crammed in that entire gameplay segment made my jaw drop, and the fact it ran so smoothly was mindblowing. It was reminiscent of the first time I encountered the train level in Uncharted 2, only even more impressive.

My only disappointment now is that they didn't show us even more, because the game looks incredible. I hope we get to see some footage of multiplayer soon as well.

kenshiro1001312d ago

The only downgrade is your blatant trolling.

The game isn't even out yet.

Get over yourself.

Forn1312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

The U4 gameplay looked amazing, Dreams seems uber sweet and unique along with The Last Guardian, FFVII Remake (what?!), but Horizon... Amazing... Breathtaking...

Couldntfindasn1312d ago

These announcements were great and all, but what about Holiday 2015? I did not see any announcements for it.

Outside_ofthe_Box1312d ago

Nick, you have a long history of doing this. You aren't fooling anyone.

kneon1312d ago

There is no need for the big exclusives for the holidays, that's when all the big multi-platform games launch.

Better to spread the exclusives across the calendar so they have less competition.

jb2271312d ago

We will see how well your downgrade claims hold up when the actual game is released & sets a benchmark for consoles (as every other ND title did on last gen) and scores a metacritic of 9.5 or better. This game is the one to beat this gen for anyone concerned w/ fun fluid gameplay on an action oriented title. There's really no doubt in my mind that it'll end up the best game to date this gen for any console.

Couldntfindasn1312d ago


outside of bloodborne what has come out this year.

callahan091312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

@kneon: You make an excellent point. Spread the exclusives throughout the dry months, as Sony has done, and then let all the huge multiplatform games command your attention in the Holiday season. It's a pretty good plan. It doesn't help that it gives Microsoft the bullet point for more exclusives in the holidays, but I think it's worth it when throughout the entire year you've got game after game after game coming out, and you've spread out the experiences for your gamers all throughout the year. What good does it do me to get 20 games in 10 weeks, and then I want to put a week to a month into each of them? It's better if they bring them out gradually, then I can naturally move from one to the next while they're fresh, which is when the hype is highest, as opposed to either having to miss out on games or get them and sit on them forever and maybe never get around to playing them.

Would Sony's year be better if Bloodborne came out this Holiday instead of a couple months ago? It's a ridiculous assertion! Of course it wouldn't be better. It would look like they have a more competitive Holiday lineup, but at the expense of then most of the year going by without a great game. What's the point of that? And then it does come out, and it's surrounded by tons of other highly hyped games, and it gets lost in the shuffle. No, Sony's year is BETTER because it came out a couple months ago, even though it makes their holiday lineup thinner that it isn't there instead.

You have to look at these things from a big picture perspective.

Muerte24941312d ago


Why would you try to rush something out the door to compete with Star Wars:BF and Fallout 4 and COD?

Microsoft is having Tomb Raider, Halo (big seller no joke), and Forza 6 cramming for the the attention just like the 3rd party guys. Halo will probably make it out unscathed, but I'm not so sure about the other two.

Couldntfindasn1312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )


I 100% agree with you. That's fine for bloodborne to come out earlier. I don't think it makes sony better, because its just another game in its lineup. Deciding when it comes out doesn't make it better/worse for you. The holiday stuff comes down to money, when someone walks into the store looking to buy a gift/treat themselves and they see that Halo 5, GoWC, Tomb Raider(timed) and Forza 6 on the shelf + multiplats, they may lean toward that. So that comes down to picking the right time to sell, and i wouldn't say selling better during a holiday season makes a better year. maybe for the corporations but not for me, I just want the games, regardless of when they come out.

That being said, I am just asking for those PS4 owners. Bias nature aside(all of us), has Sony done enough in 2015 on exclusives. What about 2014.

Also @Muerte2494

Who says they're being rushed? what if this is an idea time they shot for. On another note, wow, this holiday season is about to be insaneeeeee. look at all the 3rd party games.Tomb Raider will be fine, it has a following. i wont buy it, not my kind of game, but others will.


From what i heard the Order 1886 is horrible. was not received very well is being a little too nice. I will get hate for this but no don't bring up indie games. Btw Glad you brought up Tales. Im a huge tales fan and i bought a PS3 just so i could play graces, xillia, xillia 2, etc. Sony will alwayas be king of JRPG.

zeuanimals1312d ago


The Order 1886, which granted, was not received very well, Helldivers, MLB 15: The Show, and it's got more coming throughout the summer like J-Stars, Until Dawn, and Tearaway Unfolded. The fall has Dragon Quest Heroes and Tales of Zesteria, though this Tales is also on PC.

zeuanimals1312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )


Don't bring up indies? That's all the Xbox One has had this year except Screamride... And the Xbox One's indies were all much better than Screamride... Ori, #IDARB, and Mega Coin Squad are all great games, especially Ori.

The argument people use for Ori not being an indie is that MS published it... That doesn't mean it's not an indie. And Helldivers, the only indie I had in that list was published by Sony. Everything else was a non-indie 3rd or 1st party exclusive.

Also, this hate about indie games... Xbox fanboys seem to love Cuphead and Ori. Why this hypocrisy? Indie games can be great and a lot of the one's on the Xbox One are exceptional.

Sevir1312d ago

Honestly, I thought Battlefront was the most graphically impressive game of the entire e3... Followed closely by Horizon and then Uncharted 4... SW:BF has some unbelievable graphic prowess, I think Honestly Horizon is the closest thing that rivals it.

Uncharted 4 looks incredible and their attention to detail is crazy, it beats the pants off RotTR but I don't think it beats Horizon or Sw:BF.


I meant this part in my first comment ofc:

It even blows your cover and make you exposed, so it is not an everlasting protection like in every other game, it is just like irl. This has never been done before.

Saito1312d ago

You're a fanboy we get it.

UltimateMaster1312d ago

Downgrades? Even with downgrades, it looks better than any PC game at max settings.

Xavior_Reigns1312d ago

Definitely! A hilarious fail followed by epic gameplay, the botch imo is forgiven lol.

MasterCornholio1312d ago


Well one thing i will say about the fail.

At least it proves that it was actual gameplay and not some movie with a guy faking that hes playing it.

Thats why it didnt really bother me. But i do admit that it was funny.

Game looks amazing but if this is the most advanced physics you have ever seen then you dont follow many games. Red Faction Guerrilla (last gen), BeamNG, Next Car Game: Wreckfest and Just Cause 3 have more advanced destruction physics systems.

Pintheshadows1312d ago

Haha. Thanks for the giggle Chris. You really are crazy.

crazychris41241312d ago

Idk why people think Im hating on the game. Im getting Uncharted 4 day 1 theres just other games with more advanced physics.

CaptainObvious8781312d ago

I was really really impressed. The entire demo held my full attention.

showtimefolks1312d ago

I can't wait, I am gonna replay uncharted trilogy and wait for uncharted 4. Just an amazing conference by Sony, so much of this will never happen stuff

The last guardian
FF7 remake
shenmue 3

Come on guys we got all 3, I thought we would be lucky to get one of these.

I think I just watched the best conference ever

Davi1231312d ago

Yes! I think in years we will never see a E3 so amazing like this one!

No Way1312d ago

The Division also seems to be up there as far as "advanced physics" go.

deadfrag1312d ago

Look the division looks bad when compared to Uncharted,Horizon and even the new Tomb Raider!

jb2271312d ago

I'd hold off on praising the Division until the game drops...Ubisoft does have a pretty great track record for bugs & glitches whereas ND has virtually none. Let's see if their physics hold up. When a company has already burned it's consumers, every release after should be judged harshly & skeptical...when a company has never released a broken product, they've earned the right to not be scrutinized to that extent.

No Way1311d ago (Edited 1311d ago )

Why even compare? They are thier own game, anyway.. All different.min their respective ways. But, the physics are still great, and graphics, from what I can see. Also, in no way did I say it was any better than those games you listed; did I? No. Only that it "appears" to look impressive.

hulk_bash19871312d ago

Naughty God never disappoints. So hyped to play this game. Can't wait.

Timesplitter141312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

The gameplay was kinda lackluster. Basically an on-rails sequence full of set pieces. That's what movies are for imo

SniperControl1312d ago

Uh huh, so the whole shooting in the market and driving section was on rail? Guess, you've never played previous Uncharted games then.

Timesplitter141312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

I played uncharted 2-3 and thought they were a chore to finish. The Uncharted hype really is beyond me, especially when there's stuff like No Man's Sky, Fallout 4 and Dark Souls 3 to get excited about

OB1Biker1312d ago

I was glad to see some urban gameplay and the driving looks fun. Nice to see how Drake interacts with environment and people when moving too
Tomb Raider seemed far more cinematic.. This is pure fun

SmielmaN1312d ago

Then why are you commenting on a article tabout a game series that you find "a chore to finish". What a joke. Go troll elsewhere.

That game looked like a movie and I didn't want it to stop! Unreal looking and what a boat load of surprises. Unreal show

Timesplitter141312d ago (Edited 1312d ago )

Oh please, what would be the point of comments if only positive comments were allowed?

Are you really trying to tell me you've never voiced any sort of negative opinion in your entire life?

I'm here because this article is about Uncharted and I want to comment on it

Utalkin2me1312d ago


So obviously you're not a fan of the UC series. But yet you decided to come into a UC article and post. If im not a fan of something, i skip over it like most normal people do.

Timesplitter141312d ago

Voicing an opinion is a good reason to come and post a comment, wether that opinion is good or bad.

Now take a deep breath and stop taking any opinion that is different from yours as a personal attack

xxCaveman_88xx1312d ago

I think you posted in the wrong article. This isn't a Tomb Raider article.

@snipercontrol I know it was a trailer and not gameplay but Hitman looked the best out of what was shown, to me at least

Oh come one again that crap..
Even in the Order 1886 the gameplay doesnt look as good as in pure cut scenes when you see the characters in close up and we all know every thing is in game real time

xPhearR3dx1312d ago

Meh. Same old, same old. Nothing we haven't seen before. After seeing what Naughty Dog did with The Last of Us and what Guerrilla Games is doing with Horizon. It's clear these devs need to let go of the past and try new things. Because there new things (Last of Us for example) blow their old things out the water. That, and Horizon looks absolutely stunning in every way shape and form.

KUV19771312d ago

And what color is the grass where you are from. 'Same old, same old'? There is so much stuff in this short demo that is outstanding and leaps and bounds above everything the competition has to offer and in fact hasn't been seen before in that quality and combination, just as there was in the last demo.

Sunny_D1312d ago

A sequel dramatically changing it's formula from the past games that were already astounding would cease to make it have any relation to the series, don't you think? That's why Last of us is different. It's a different IP.

SmielmaN1312d ago

Same old same old eh?
Gears, halo, forza, fable ring a bell? Or how about begging you to put your 360 games in a xbone?


UC4 looked incredible. That Sony show was huge megaton after huge megaton.

Did you go into the Tomb Raider, Gears or Halo articles and claim, bahh it's the same ol same ol? Im pretty sure you didn't.

What a waste of time. You're NOT a fan of the series yet you took the time out to voice your worthless opinion about it? I say worthless because if you were a fan than whatever criticism you spew would have validity, but seeing as you are not you're just trolling to be a d***head.

Why would anyone care what your opinion is, good or bad, when you know very little about the subject matter? It's not that you have a different opinion, it's that that opinion of yours is worthless here.

Just gorgeous and awesome gameplay for Uncharted 4! This was the most mind-blowing E3 and Sony press conference that I have ever watched! I kept my hopes down and I was blown away. Now THAT is a stellar and winning E3 press conference! My God!

Last Guardian
FF7 Remake
Shenmue III
Uncharted 4
No Man's Sky
Dream (I think)

That was EPIC! I cannot describe my feelings when I recognized the theme playing in the background of the FF7 trailer and my heart confirmed it was FF7 finally...

Majin-vegeta1312d ago

To think we still have Paris Game week,TGS and most likely another PSX event Holy Sony isnt playing around

Morgue1312d ago

Shenmue was a Kickstater I thought? Unless it's a ploy by SONY to fund the whole game once it's reaches a certain point.

Maybe I'm an idiot which is usually the case:/
