A comparison has been made in regards to the upcoming PS4 title, "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." According to a report from Kotaku on June 15, Eric Monacelli talked a little bit more regarding the trailer that was shown at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. The community manager at Naughty Dog first reiterated that the video was rendered using the game's engine.

The footage shows Nathan Drake, the protagonist of the series, waking up in what appears to be a tropical setting. The character model for the main character was highly detailed as viewers can spot the most minute details, especially on his face. The trailer ends as Nathan Drake walks further into the jungle.

Eric Monacelli compared the character model of Nathan Drake to Joel from the PS3 version of "The Last of Us." He revealed that the hero from the PS4 game has over double amount the polygons when compared to Joel's character model. You can find a screen from the upcoming release from the Playstation Facebook page with the photo attached near the top of this article.

"The Last of Us" and "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" could be using the same graphics engine based on a previous statement made by Naughty Dog. The development studio disclosed that they will be porting the same tools from the PS3 to the PS4 while making adjustments along the way. Some of the changes should be seen in "The Last of Us Remastered," which features numerous visual improvements such as 1080p rendering and potential support for 60 frames per second.

The same visual targets have also been set for "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." Despite the highly-detailed textures running at a native 1080p resolution, Naughty Dog is planning to make the sequel run at a frame rate clip of 60 per second. The PS4 exclusive title is expected to be released by Sony Computer Entertainment sometime in 2015 for North America and other regions.
