Sony has revealed the first gameplay footage of the highly anticipated Uncharted 4 via Playstation Experience, and it is a delicious return to form.
Being the heavy hitter that they are, Sony has provided a whopping 15 miutes of debut gameplay. From improved melee combat to a glorious firefight, you are bound to pump your fist at all of this glory.
Behold… Uncharted 4.
With each new Uncharted game that is announced, you always know what to expect. Improved graphics, new player mechanics, and a handful of new one-liners that somehow avoid grating on your nerves. What I didn’t expect however, was such an emphasis on verticality and movement. This trailer has blown me away with the amount of chaos that happens during any given firefight.
In the previous games, many of the firefights would go down with you simply finding cover and waiting for enemies to flood in. In Uncharted 4, it seems – so far at least – that enemy AI is more dynamic, and enemy placements are much more meaningful. Drake is constantly climbing, hiding, running, dodging, and shooting, and it all seems much more fast paced and hectic than ever before.
Whether this segment is representative of a majority of the action in Uncharted 4, or simply a heavily scripted one off, we will have to wait and see. I am feeling quite positive however, as Naughty Dog never disappoints.
