Several members of the Naughty Dog studio have provided updates on two upcoming projects, "The Last of Us Remastered" and "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." According to a report from Gamepur on July 7, Anthony Vaccaro confirmed that the development team recently held an environment art review on the latest "Uncharted" sequel. The internal meeting apparently went well as he disclosed that he was excited with the progress.
The development team provided a brief look at "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" during the E3 2014 event in June. The trailer, which was shown at the end of a two-hour press conference held by Sony Computer Entertainment, featured Nathan Drake waking up in a tropical setting that somewhat resembles the location found in "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune." Although the footage was done in real-time, nothing resembling gameplay was featured. The studio did confirmed that the sequel should end up running with a frame rate of 60 at 1080p.
Jason Gregory also updated the status of "The Last of Us Remastered" release date. The lead programmer stated that the port is close to reaching gold status. As a result, it should be sent out soon for manufacturing. Naughty Dog was able to reach their target of 60 frames per second while increasing the native resolution to 1080p at the same time. Similar to "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End," no real gameplay footage has been showcased so far for the PS4 version of "The Last of Us."
"Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" still has plenty of development left as it won't be coming out until next year. Naughty Dog hopes to keep fans busy with "The Last of Us Remastered," which will be arriving on July 29. You can find a screen on the original PS3 game from the official Playstation Facebook website near the top of this article. Both Naughty Dog titles are being published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Both PS4 Naughty Dog games are available for pre-order from Amazon with the next link: "The Last of Us Remastered" and "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End."
