The Uncharted 4 E3 2015 Extended Demo is Here and it’s Glorious

Drake

Naughty Dog has released the extended version of the highly talked about Uncharted 4 demo, shown at this year’s E3. The extra footage picks up (Obviously) where the previous video left, as Nathan continues his attempt to rescue his older Brother Sam from his pursuers. What follows is an action packed spectacle that puts a lot of movies to shame.

You can skip ahead to the 7:30 mark in the video if you want to get straight to the new footage. Honestly though, watching it from start to finish, makes it that much cooler.

 

Uncharted: A Thief’s End will release in Spring 2016 exclusively on PlayStation 4.

Uncharted 4 Will Now Release in 2016

Uncharted-4-A-Thiefs-End

Naughty Dog’s Creative Director, Neil Druckmann has announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed. According to his note on the PlayStation blog, Druckmann states the game being “much more ambitious” than they realize, as the reason for the delay.

“After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don’t take lightly — this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for. So we’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date. Giving us a few extra months will make certain that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End not only meets the team’s high standards, but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title.”

Players can now expect to continue Nathan Drake’s adventures in the spring of 2016.

Naughty Dog Sparks Debate; Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Probably Not 60 FPS

Nathan Drake Uncharted 4 Graphics Comparison PS4 Exclusive RealGamerNewz

When watching the developers behind the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive video game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End it becomes clear that their intentions are to bring out the best possible marriage of cinematography and gameplay. This is something Naughty Dog has a proven history at doing well with. Uncharted 2 is still hailed as possibly one of the greatest and most cinematic gameplay experiences of all time while still catering to hardcore adrenaline junkies of traditional gaming culture. Many non-gamers were able to watch and remark that it was just like watching a film, albeit with a few more moments of dying on harder difficulties. The Last of Us had a similar success as it reached into living rooms and entertained across a wide spectrum of demographics, touching the hearts of millions worldwide in the forming of a true blockbuster IP.

Naughty Dog is set to drop jaws in the world of gamers and cinematic fans once again as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End approaches release some time this year. The studio has managed to introduce 4 times the level of graphics seen in Uncharted 3, given a Real Body Physics engine with 360 degree animation, and a healthy helping of more visual effects engines, design improvements, and minor touches that players won’t notice because they make what’s on-screen seem real.

A representative for Naughty Dog the developer behind the series is quoted below speaking about Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and the direction the team is looking to take in terms of graphics engine prioritization.

“We’re actually above 30, but we locked it [for the demo]. We’re going to do whatever it takes to make the game we want to make. If it means we could go for 60 but lose something that would really impact the player’s experience, then it’s our choice as developers to say, ‘Well, we’re going to go for the experience over the 60 frames.'” – Bruce Straley // Director of Uncharted 4

Uncharted 4 Gameplay Time

We’d hate to let hype sway us, and we really can’t expect any development studio to be perfect – but at the risk of jinxing a great thing we have to admit that Naughty Dog is as close to flawless as it gets when Industry Talk finds its way to the topic of AAA development. Graphically, the game can still look impressive without being 60 frames per second. It may not look like much now, but at the time of its release Uncharted 2 was very polished and in the console segment of the market was regarded as a high technical accomplishment.

Naughty Dog not only marvels audiences with front-end releases through major Sony 1st party publishing contracts but also helped develop the tools for third party companies to make PS3 games easier during a time when the platform was struggling to gain neutral ground against Xbox 360. Mark Cerny and Sony Worldwide Studios Boss Yoshida have also expressed many times that Naughty Dog was instrumental in developing the architecture of the PlayStation 4.

So it’s with much understanding that gamers want the world, a cake, and to eat it too when talking about any Naughty Dog related project. During The Last of Us: Remastered’s development there came a point when Corrinne Yu of Naughty Dog (and ex-Halo developer) speculated taking The Last of Us above 60 frames per second on the PS4 hardware. Ultimately, gamers rejoiced when 60 Frames Per Second for TLOU:R was essentially confirmed ahead of launch by Neil Druckmann of Naughty Dog.

Nothing is new about the science behind 60 Frames Per Second, Check out this 1998 essay about it. You’ve all heard the myth that “studies ‘prove’ human eyes cannot tell the difference”, but this can simply be attributed to poorly thought out academics from a narrow point of view. The lack of evidence, is not evidence. 60 Frames Per Second is not up for debate, that’s why you won’t hear any developer worth their salt trying to sell you a 15 Frames Per Second game.

Uncharted 4 A Thief's End - RealGamerNewz PS4

It is likely that many gamers still to this day cannot see the difference between 30 Frames Per Second Vs 60 Frames Per Second. As time progresses, just as our eyes adapt and become more used to graphics of old consoles – there comes a time when the mind can process more information than traditionally expected. This is seen not just in video games, but in Sports athletes, Doctors who work under high pressure, and many other walks of life in which the connection between the optic nerve, the brain, and the eyes becomes very “in-the-moment”, rapidly processing large amounts of information with ease.

It’s the reason YouTube implemented support for 60 Frames Per Second videos. You can check out an in-depth explanation talking about this, explaining everything in the first 2 minutes while visually showing off the actual Gameplay Footage of The Last of Us: Remastered in 60 Frames Per Second. Check it out below, and props to YouTuber SwingPoynt for creating the video which just happened to be a perfect example of what we’re talking about in this article.

The science explained above is how gamers who can see in 60 Frames Per Second are able to enjoy the multiplayer of The Last of Us: Remastered more and get a slightly faster gameplay experience from it. The feel and vibe we at RealGamerNewz and RGN Community readers are getting so far from the Uncharted 4 game is a bit more cinematic, and likely will not attempt to match this. Surely, for many, this is going to be looked at as a negative thing before launch is even close to ready. It doesn’t mean the game won’t be great, but it cuts out a grand aspect that many players are perhaps foolishly assuming  would be the next logical step for Uncharted as a franchise in addition to a measurement of PS4’s power.

Too Early To Jump To Conclusions:

  1. Currently, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End runs at 37 Frames Per Second (Confirmed by EDGE via Tanya Valdez).
  2. Naughty Dog is considering capping the game at 30 Frames Per Second (via Bruce Straley of Naughty Dog).
  3. The game is not Gold yet, and is still a work in progress. This is not Finalized.
  4. The game has some of the best photo-realistic looking textures on PS4, so far.
  5. Even at 37 Frames Per Second, The Multiplayer Mode’s Gameplay Experience Can Be Sped Up In Other Ways

In the clip above, during an interview that took place this weekend on Game Informer, the two voice actors behind Nathan Drake and Sam also gave their two cents on the game’s direction as well as where they draw inspiration from for the attitude, feel, and vibe of the fourth Uncharted game and first Uncharted game on PlayStation 4.

TLOU:R was so much better because of 60 frames per second, especially the online mode. Most people appreciated the ability to switch back and forth between 30 and 60 as well, usually ending up with 30 for those who enjoyed the Story mode a second time (or for the first time). Based on everything that’s coming out of the Naughty Dog camp at this moment in time, it sadly appears that Uncharted 4 is probably not going to end up being 60 Frames Per Second.

With full fledged “Fanboy Wars” raging on once again within underground gamer communities, Naughty Dog probably doesn’t want to risk having textures that are small enough to draw ridicule to the PlayStation brand and are actually  just choosing bigger textures over more frames per second. Is it going to be Full 1080P HD, and truly True 1080P Native? Would it be possible to get the best of both worlds, with a slice in that texture size? Which would be the best looking / playing game at the end of the day? These are billion dollar questions, and the pressure on Naughty Dog surely is mounting up right now.

From the outside looking in, just making the Online Multiplayer Mode 60 Frames Per Second seems the obvious way to serve both demographics. But of course, game development is never that simple, and on this scale is surely something best left up to Naughty Dog to decide. We look forward to playing the game either way, and if players go into this expecting a movie-like experience as was delivered in Uncharted 2, I can’t imagine they’ll be let down based on what we are seeing so far. Of course, keep tracking more Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End on your favorite gaming publications, and thanks for reading RGN’s PlayStation 4 section.

A Remastered Uncharted Trilogy for PS4 “a good candidate” says Yoshida

uncharted_2

Having sold 18 million copies worldwide and receiving critical acclaim from gamers and reviewers alike, it is safe to say Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series has done pretty great on the PS3. With Uncharted 4: A thief’s End set to release on the PlayStation 4 in the coming future, its predecessors may end up joining it.

During an interview with Eurogamer about the strength of PlayStation’s 2014 lineup, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) chief Shuhei Yoshida refers to the Uncharted series as “a good candidate” for a PS4 remaster when asked about the possibility of more titles following in The Last of Us‘ footsteps.

“Almost 50 per cent of people who have purchased a PS4 didn’t own a PS3, and that’s lots of people that missed exclusive PS3 titles like The Last of Us, so it’s a great way to welcome those people back to PlayStation, saying this is what you missed.” Yoshida explained.

“There are requests from some consumers for games that were released later in the generation, like Uncharted, which people might have missed,” adds Yoshida. “That would be a good candidate. We don’t want to flood the market with remade games either.”

Yoshida also added that they “don’t want to flood the market with remade games either.” so nothing is set in stone, but if any game/series has a strong chance at being redone for the PlayStation, then the adventures of Nathan Drake must be pretty high on that list.
