We waited until the very end of the Sony conference to see this, and boy did it go down well with the audience! Immediate cheers as soon as the Naughty Dog logo came up and everyone knew what was coming. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will release in 2015, and as stated in the trailer, everything you see was captured directly from a PS4.
PlayStation Blog confirmed that the game is running at 1080p and the studio is targeting 60 fps, read the full statement below:
You’ve been waiting for it and it’s finally here. At E3 2014 we unveiled two trailers, one for each of the PS4 projects we’re currently developing. The Uncharted game we’ve been working on sees the return of…well, why don’t you watch the trailer and see for yourself!
That’s Nathan Drake rendered in full 1080p glory using the power of our PS4 engine. All footage you see in the trailer was captured completely in-engine. We’re targeting 60fps for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and as you can see the visual fidelity for our character models will reach new heights. In fact, thanks to the power of the PS4, right now Drake’s Uncharted 4 model is over double the polygons of Joel from The Last of Us PS3.
The next generation of Nathan Drake is going to be very real and will explore what it means when Drake is forced back into the world of thieves. He will embark on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. It’s his greatest adventure yet and will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.
We’ll have more information on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in the coming months.
