Shuhei Yoshida has further commented on the upcoming PS4 exclusive release, "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." According to a report from Gamepur on July 1, the president behind Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios hinted that the gameplay in the sequel should have a similar concept to the previous games in the series. He revealed that the storytelling elements should be "seamlessly integrated" into the video game.
Although the earlier installments of the series feature cut scenes, most of the plot were also told through interactive sequences. It appears that the sequel will be following the same plan. A gameplay video has not yet been showcased for the upcoming title. Instead, Sony Computer Entertainment provided a first look at the graphics with a short trailer that was shown during the publisher's E3 2014 press conference last month. The footage shows Nathan Drake waking up on a shore of a mysterious location and features impressive visuals, especially with the character model of the main character.
As for the final product, Shuhei Yoshida seems to be extremely confident in the quality of "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." He disclosed that he told Naughty Dog to make a "great game," adding that he does not want to know how the project has been progressing. Due to his job, he often gets to check out early builds of software products, which somewhat hurt his experiences when compared to the rest of the gaming community.
"Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" won't be coming out this year as Sony Computer Entertainment announced in the same E3 2014 event that the sequel is expected to hit store shelves sometime next year. The video game is going to run at 60 frames per second with a native resolution of 1080p despite the highly-detailed textures and other advanced visual elements that development team is using. A screen showing off the graphics can be seen near the top of this article (courtesy of the Facebook page of Playstation). You can pre-order the forthcoming sequel on Amazon: "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End."
