Arne Meyer has talked more about the graphics of the upcoming PS4 exclusive video game, "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." According to a report from Eurogamer on July 21, the community strategist at Naughty Dog first addressed the skeptics in regards to the frame rate. The development team previously stated that the sequel is going to run at 60 frames per second although occasional drops could happen. Arne Meyer personally thinks that the drops will be hardly noticeable to anyone but the most hardcore gamers.

Another upcoming release from the studio, "The Last of Us Remastered," also gives players the ability to lock the frame rate to 30 instead of 60. The community strategist explained that this feature is done to address a portion of the community who would rather play the PS4 port at a lower clip. One example he used is that one fan would get more nauseous while playing games at 60 frames as opposed to 30.

The next-generation system also allows the development team to go beyond the targets of 720p resolution and 30 frames per second used for the PS3. Naughty Dog is planning to render "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" with 1080p native resolution as well as the 60 frames clip. Arne Meyer seems confident that the studio will be able to hit the targeted specs based on the aforementioned "The Last of Us Remastered."

Finally, he also took some time to addressed the possibility of a remastered collection featuring the first three mainline releases of the "Uncharted" series. He personally believed that the compilation is going to work well as it gives new and old fans a chance to play some of the most acclaimed games from the previous generation. However, he does not know if Naughty Dog currently has time to work on the ports.

"The Last of Us Remastered" will be released next week while "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is set to launch next year. The company also started work on another new project.
