Naughty Dog has always been known for its commitment to brilliant visual fidelity, but now it looks as though they're trying to push boundaries again with Uncharted 4. In a post on their official website Naughty Dog confirmed its targeting a full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
Which, considering the sheer aesthetic quality of the demo we saw at E3, seems quite remarkable.
"All footage you see in the trailer was captured completely in engine," confirmed Naughty Dog, in the post. "That’s Nathan Drake rendered in 1080p full glory using the power of our PS4 engine. All footage you see in the trailer was captured completely in engine. We’re targeting 60fps for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and as you can see the visual fidelity for our character models will reach new heights. In fact, thanks to the power of the PS4, right now Drake’s Uncharted 4 model is over double the polygons of Joel from The Last of Us PS3."
The demo shown at E3 is now viewable at 1080p/60 frames per second. It'll require a fairly beefy computer and a decent web connection to stream. Head in this direction to watch.
Naught Dog really are ahead of the curve when it comes to maximising PlayStation technology. Can't wait to see/play the end result of this.
