Uncharted 4 : A Thief’s End is an upcoming action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game published by Sony Computer Entertainment and developed by Naughty Dog exclusively for PlayStation 4. It has also been announced that this will be the last entry in the Uncharted series featuring the character of Nathan Drake. The game is set to release in either the first or second quarter of 2016.
Set three years after the events of Uncharted 3 : Drake’s Deception, Nathan Drake, now retired as a fortune hunter, has settled into a normal life with his wife Elena Fisher. His world is then turned upside down when his older brother Sam, long believed dead, suddenly appears seeking Drake’s help. Together they embark on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a conspiracy behind a long lost pirate colony and its fabled pirate treasure. Naughty Dog outlined the game’s plot as
“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”.
The first trailer was released about an year ago on 9th June 2014, and the graphics were unbelievable.
Then again blew our minds off with the Demo in the E3 Conference 2015, the gameplay was so exciting and thrilling that one wouldn’t have to think for even a second before pre-ordering the game. The demo featured a much bigger environment, large amounts of destruction, new combat moves. An extended trailer at an E3 press briefing also revealed the return of Nathan’s wife Elena Fisher. While Naughty Dog originally targeted a rate of 60 frames per second for the whole game, it was announced that a 30 frames per second rate is now being targeted for the campaign, while 60 frames per second is still being targeted for the multiplayer modes. Naughty Dog previously expressed difficulties in getting the game to reach 60 frames per second. I have watched this gameplay 20 times or so but it still doesn’t cease to amazing me.
