Google translated some parts:

Never before in this chapter are the fatal events to lead our to make the difficult decision to leave for distant lands is not the promise of a millionaire treasure, nor the fame and glory; but a dramatic situation that can overturn the cards on the table.

The desert environments with strong colors red blood that stand before the players are in fact fully explorable and at first glance seem to propose different approaches to the mission: in fact the suspension of disbelief does not have such a long life, the locations are built so that they can recreate the feeling a huge open space despite the existence of a single junction and only need the continuation of the story.

The immense landscapes stand out on the retina of the player, featuring a broad and rich in minute details; details that only a few software companies in the world are able to carve and donate to their productions.

Uncharted 4: End of a thief managed to dispel almost all of the (very few) doubts that tormented me before the single-player test, carried out last Friday behind closed doors in that of Milan. The game seems to granite in every aspect: the story of this new chapter starts from a premise more mature than previous episodes - without neglecting the typical humor of the series - while the already solid gameplay has been touched up with some interesting additions and supported by a level design that allows a variety of different approaches. The only question appears on the narrative front: Naughty Dog will be able to reconcile the lockout and masterful storytelling of previous episodes with the new (albeit apparent) freedom of action typical of this fourth chapter? There are only a few weeks to find out, but on May 10 has never been so far away.



took the screenshots from Dinjooh posted in the Uncharted went gold thread.

About combat

thanks to the greater openness of the environment and the resulting different possibilities of approach. the landscape offers numerous strategies to face the enemy, accerchiandolo, sticking his head down or quietly, with stealth killings calibrated to the millimeter. the innovations introduced here thus refer the detection-system AI enemy and Nate's ability to act through stealth movements, favored by the natural shape of the location. the battle can be divided into two simple stages: the first consists in the approach to the target, with the possibility of mark the enemies from a distance, by pushing the buttons L2 and L3; mechanical performance rather trivial in the application because of a too wide range that allows the player to activate profusely markers on enemies are not in visual range. The second, however, is the classic phase of engagement, already present in other earlier chapters, in which the user can decide how to proceed in the clash: the level design of Uncharted 4: End of a Thief in fact allows all types d ' action, emphasizing stealth attack in favor of a boarding without rules. Naughty Dog has provided in this chapter carto the slaughter of unsuspecting enemies of the presence of Drake and, in the vicinity of some contextual areas - such as evergreen shrubs borrowed from a long line of previous games, the body can be automatically hidden from view. Often the latter technique is necessary to eliminate the large number of soldiers present: their projectiles causing high damage to Nathan and throw himself openly in the battle is only recommended for experienced players. This constant urge towards a silent approach has led the Californian software house to design a detection system consisting of the three states "ignorant", "alarm" and "fighter", each determined by a specific color and by a device placed over the roar opponent's head. The system is surprisingly responsive and the look of the sentries is natural and well designed, without encountering thus casus belli generated by X-rays of a friendly guard armed named Clark Kent. Last but not least it is inevitable to mention the grappling hook, already known after the introduction trailer released in the previous months; it can be used not only to solve puzzles related to the environment but also in battle, to rappel from above on unsuspecting enemies or to move quickly on the pitch.

The production value of this game is just insane. How much did Sony spent on this?

That rope swinging feels like the biggest gimmick ever.
the rope swinging is like the best new addition. Everything about it is so good. Feels good, looks good, and adds a bunch of new dynamics to both combat and traversal.

Naughty Dog is so mean. They just don't want anyone else to even reach the bar of excellence they put up.

They need to know how to develop games properly more like it. You'd think people would take them to task on having to patch huge portions of their games months after launch before crying about underpowered hardware.

That kind of attitude of either publishers or developers doesn't change with a hardware upgrade

You can mark enemies, I'm surprised they added that :p
They stole that from MGSV, which stole it from Far Cry 3.

"ignorant", "alarm" and "fighter" are Gameloft-tier enemy stealth AI states.

A Thief's End indeed.

Hopefully this isn't a TLOU PS3 situation where it looks good but runs like ass.
In the preview he sad it ran very smooth. Obviously that means little as press are often terrible at noticing stuff like that, but definitely a good sign

Did it run that bad on PS3? Even after playing it on PS4 at 60fps, I don't remember the framerate being noticeably bad all the times I played it on PS3.

Marking enemies!? gives me some bad open world vibes :(

I hope to get a focusd Uncharted experience, perhaps I misjudged how open this game really is.


Well he already broke it, so where are his videos? :p
We if we going by the PSX demo some places should be fairly open .
MGS 3 style.
