Neil Druckmann has further commented on some of the features for "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End," which is coming exclusively for the PS4. According to a report from Push Square on June 11, the co-director hinted that the development is planning to add more depth to all of the mechanics from the third-person shooting action-adventure title. On the other hand, Naughty Dog would also like to keep the character, pacing and scale found in the previous installments intact.
He went on to state that the move set of Nathan Drake will be expanded. As a result, players are going to have more options when it comes to combat, exploration and platforming. Unfortunately, he did not elaborate on some of the additions.
Neil Druckmann did talk a little bit about the trailer by stating that the footage provided a hint at the visual direction Naughty Dog is planning for the software product. The new tech being implemented gives the development team the opportunity to add more subtle touches. For example, the color of skin around the eye area will change when Nathan Drake raises his eyebrows.
Neil Druckmann will be co-directing "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" along with Bruce Straley. The two served the same role in "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves" in 2009 and "The Last of Us" in 2013. However, the original project leads for the upcoming game were Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond before both individuals decided to leave Naughty Dog earlier this year to join separate studios.
Even with the shuffle to the development team, the first look at "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" impressed many onlookers when it was shown off right at the conclusion of Sony Computer Entertainment's media briefing. A vague 2015 release for the sequel was also announced despite the short teaser clip. Along with "Bloodborne" and "The Order 1886," next year should be big for the first-party publisher in terms of exclusive games.
