Uncharted 4 Wins Visual Effects Award

Naughty Dog's action-adventure is being honored again.


After winning an animation award over the weekend, Naughty Dog's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has picked up another one. The action-adventure game took home the award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Real-Time project at last night's Visual Effect Society awards.

Below is a picture that Naughty Dog shared of Uncharted 4 game director Bruce Straley, VFX artist Iki Ikram, and technical artist Eben Cook.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Dishonored 2, Gears of War 4, Quantum Break, and the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them virtual reality were also nominated for the award.

Ubisoft's For Honor and EA's Titanfall 2 were nominated for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Commercial, but the John Lewis ad, Buster the Boxer, ended up winning. Dishonored 2 was nominated for Outstanding Created Environment in an Episode, Commercial, or Real-Time Project; the award went to Game of Thrones for its Battle of the Bastards fight scene.
