What’s a Sony conference without some good ol’ Nathan Drake and Victor Sully footage? Nothing I say! Sony have concluded their evening not with a surprise announcement, but rather with new footage of highly anticipated fan favourite, Uncharted 4.
The footage kicks off with Drake and Sully walking through a market place. It’s alive, colourful, and packed to the brim with human activity. As expected, it isn’t long before everything goes a little south for the pair of adventurers. Enemies appear, and the action kicks off.
The movement, somehow, by the power of Naughty Dog, looks even more fluid than already was in previous Uncharted titles and The Last of Us. The gunplay and everything else however, well, it feels like I’ve seen it before. That being said, it all looks more polished than ever.
Soon after the market has been shot to pieces, a driving section kicks off. It’s simply magnificent, filled with tons of handbrakes and surprise turns. Naughty Dog really are good at putting together set pieces.
The gameplay ends with Drake meeting his potential demise – the screen fades to black. OMG DID HE DIE?
As much as I love Uncharted, nothing WOW stands out from this footage. Still, I’m glad Uncharted 4 exists. I can’t wait to get my grubby paws on it!
