Graphics and framerate performance are two things that seem to be of increasing importance, especially with the arrival of the next-gen consoles. Naughty Dog realises this and it’s evident in their teaser trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
According to the US PlayStation Blog,
“That’s Nathan Drake rendered in full 1080p 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 PS4, right now Drake’s Uncharted 4 model is over double the polygons of Joel from The Last of Us PS3.”
“Targeting 60fps” doesn’t necessarily mean that Uncharted 4 itself will run at 60 frames per second, but it’s definitely nice to know that Naughty Dog is pulling out all the stops for their first outing on the PS4, not including The Last of Us: Remastered.
