Sony closed its E3 presentation tonight with Uncharted 4’s Nathan Drake and Sully. And boy, does the game look fantastic.
We finally get a detailed look at Uncharted 4 in this gameplay demo.
You can’t marvel at the sights in the demo for too long, though—soon enough, Nathan and Sully find themselves shooting their way through a market as all hell breaks lose.
Kotaku’s list of impressive things shown off during the demo:
-A TON of destructible terrain and environment. At one point, Nathan hides behind bags of flour—and they deflate as enemies shoot them. Throughout the rest of the demo, Nathan’s car crashes into all sorts of stuff, and it all seems to dynamically react to the impact. The market also has a ton of knick nacks that go flying when shot. Bonus: the bigger the weapon, the more destruction it causes.
-The sheer number/density of people the game can show. Every single person appears to be doing something, too, making the (very lush) world seem lived-in.
-When you shoot enemies, they seem to react to the specific area you shot them in.
-The setpieces still seem meticulously designed, and give a good sense of ADVENTURE.
-Enemies seem smarter, and will team up on you.
At one point Drake was grabbed by an enemy as another approached to tackle him, but the double-team was countered as Sully dove in to save Drake–a nice touch in what otherwise felt like a level featuring Nathan Drake versus the world.
Here’s what Naughty Dog Community Strategist, Eric Monacelli had to say about it.
It’s very rewarding to finally show off all of our hard work on this new section of Drake’s escapades, set in a meticulously crafted, fictional, Madagascan city, and re-introducing his old friend and mentor, Victor Sullivan. Yes, in addition to his new, wild, rope swinging acrobatics, Nathan Drake will be able to drive various vehicles for the first time ever in franchise history. This is the most action-packed demo we’ve ever assembled for E3. If you’re at the show please stop by the Uncharted 4 theater in the PlayStation booth in West Hall to check out even more of what Drake and Sully are up to.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be released in March 2016 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
