E3 2014: Uncharted PS4 Is 1080p, Targeting 60fps

Naughty Dog also confirms that everything you see in the trailer was captured in-engine.

Uncharted: A Thief's End for the PlayStation 4 runs in 1080p, Naughty Dog announced tonight in a post on the PlayStation Blog. The studio is targeting 60fps for the game.

In addition, Naughty Dog said everything you see in the game's teaser trailer above was captured completely in-engine. "As you can see, the visual fidelity for our character models will reach new heights," Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli said.

Monacelli pointed out that Nathan Drake's character model--at the current state of development--has more than double the number of polygons of Joel from the PlayStation 3 version of The Last of Us.

As for the story for Uncharted: A Thief's End, Naughty Dog writes, "[Nathan Drake] 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."

Uncharted: A Thief's End launches in 2015 exclusively on PS4.

Hops it's as fun and crazy as the other games. Druckman taking over post-The Last of Us and the dark tone of the trailer has me a bit worried that they're gonna try and make Uncharted too serious.

I am hoping for 2 things. The new people in charge know the differences of tones needed between TLoU and Uncharted. And I am hoping this isn't the end.

Not the biggest fan of Uncharted or demon souls. Looks like I'm holding off the PS4 for another year. (Though that white one is smexy)

Not going to lie but I think Xbox took E3 this year.

Drake now looks like the actor who plays Oberyn from GOT

If Uncharted 4 is going to be 60fps, it's going to be even more confined and scripted than ever before.

This conference sucked. All that had my interest was Uncharted 4. There was no new Santa Monica game. No Ratchet and Clank. No Jak and Daxter. No JRPG PS4 exclusives. No Final Fantasy. No Kingdom Hearts. Wow Sony you have really disappointed me. Will not be purchasing a PS4 this year now.  Also where the hell is Deep Down?

 Pretty obvious this game will degraded in visuals for it's final console build.

No way in hell will that be rendered like that in gameplay. PS4 has some decent hardware but, it's no Titan GPU.

@eternity888 Expect some weird ~900px vertical resolution at framerates that cap out around 48.

@nigelholden they worked on uncharted 2, which is the best in the series yet for me, so i think its in perfect hands.

@doongoonn There was Santa Monica presence this year. All of Xbox's announcements literally destroyed Sony's. Watch the post show. Most journalist are saying Xbox won this year.

@vladric Yeah, they did according to you took over E3 with 4 new maps that are coming to its garbage system. Its funny to see some useless comments during the day.

@vladric As far as AAA exclusives coming this year, Xbox definitely has the edge. Personally I'm sick of waiting for good games, so it's nice to see SSOD, MCC and FH2 dropping by the holiday.


Bought my PS4 for exclusives, and thus far have been really disappointed. But, Planetside 2 will be fun this year.

@vladric I agree with you, Sony now just want to sell us smoke and mirrors with its shitty indie games and exploited sequels, where are the new games? where?

@sammoth Obviously not. But there are many out there who would swear otherwise. 


I wish they had shown some gameplay.

I haven't seen a site yet that says that. Sony or Nintendowere best from w hat I have read. I don't like halo, so it didn't look that great to me for Microsoft.

@vladric @doongoonn All of Xbox's announcements literally destroyed Sony's!? Only the name of Uncharted 4 destroyed the entire garbage Xbox. All of Xbox's announcements literally destroyed Sony's? With what? With stupid game called sunset or the exclusive DLC maps that are coming first to garbage Xbox for 2 weeks.

They dont have any gamplay, they just throw us a bone to buy the PS4 next year when U4, LBP3 and The Order will the only good games the console offer

@phbz Please tell us how the PS4 is a "super charged PC". It is, in no way, more powerful than a $500 PC.

If they would of threw god of war out there that would of kill it, sony being patient no need to show your whole deck its a couple more shows coming up its gonna get ugly

@Syphon_Filter2 @vladric @doongoonn Hi, PC gamer here stating objectively that XBox releases were more impressive.  Stop living in denial and stubbornly defending the PS4.  It's not like you are somehow bound to a system.  

Multiple companies want your business, it's not like MS is your enemy because you own a PS4.

@vladric @origkillmachine I'm not a DS guy, so Bloodborne meant nothing to me. Maybe if we had seen some gameplay. Personally, I hate this dark sickening vibe of all Sony's exclusives. Zombies, death, gore, blood. Do they ever smile in Japan, or just hack each others limbs off and drink blood?

SSOD baby!

vladric

@origkillmachine @vladric Why did they showcase Witcher 3 on Xbox? You would think Sony would do that because it will probably run and look a little bit better on the PS4. That let it die trailer sucked. 

vladric

@KiriharaZro @vladric Where is Santa Monica? They are one of Sony's biggest developers and make God of War. I wasn't sold on the Let it Die and Bloodborne cgi live action trailers. I do love Dark Souls series and Demon Souls. It's still not enough to justify a purchase for the console. When they will multiplat Dark Souls 3.  Also there was very little japanese rpg presence. Where is the new Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts 3? 

origkillmachine

@phbz Definitely not my kind of game. 1v1 corridor action repeatedly broken up by cutscenes doesn't work for me. I like to actually play my games. A multiplayer would help, but that's not happening.

@vladric @origkillmachine Same goes for The Divison. I've had fanboys telling me for months that Division is PS4 primary platform, but I see it on MS stage with exclusive content for MS platforms. Not sure what to think about that.


Though, Sony's stage had GTA, Mortal Combat and Batman which all looked great. Lot's of good multiplats coming, but as a both-platform holder it's the exclusives I'm interested in hearing about.

@origkillmachine @vladric there is usually very little difference in visuals when it comes to console multiplatforms. It's more minor differences in details. I care more about the performance of the game than the visuals.
