When Sony introduced the PS4, we have been promised new, highly effective , able to bringing graphics and gameplay to new heights that have been merely unimaginable with older expertise. For probably the most half, we’ve gotten that: just a few years in and the PS4 is an eminently succesful purchase, with a deep library of spectacular video games and it’s first stellar vacation season behind it. However moments after the announcement, I principally solely had one query operating by way of my head: “what’s Naughty Canine going to do with this?” The developer is the crown jewel of Sony’s first occasion studios, and I all the time had the sensation that we have been by no means actually going to see what the PS4 was able to till Uncharted four.
Sony launched a stable 15 minutes of gameplay in the present day that includes Sully, Drake and newcomer Sam Drake traipsing round Madagascar, seeing what there’s to see. And sure, it seems to be superb: other than baseline glorious fashions and lighting, we’ve acquired actually spectacular fluid mechanics, each by way of water and extra viscous mud. However it’s these massive, open vistas that actually make this sport, for me. Uncharted is all in regards to the spirit of an Indiana Jones/40s pulp journey, and one thing about that countless blue sky captures that higher than the rest.
The video showcases off a barely extra open world than the hall mechanics of Uncharted that we’ve seen previously. Not open open world, thoughts you, simply what seems to be a barely broader choice in the way you method the extent. We see Drake sneak round again in the direction of a extra stealthy entrance, and something to tamp down the “Nathan Drake is probably the most charming mass assassin you’ve ever met factor” is nice information by me. We’ve had one thing like these choices earlier than, however right here’s hoping for extra!
