Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Aiming For Top Quality Graphics
Naughty Dog has an objective to make all of its Playstation 4 releases look amazing. Eurogamer reports that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be no exception. Since successfully creating The Last of Us: Remastered at 1080p and 60fps, Uncharted 4 is aiming to equal the quality.
This years E3 showed us trailers for both The Last of Us: Remastered, Naughty Dog's first game on their PS4 engine, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. You can't deny the improvement in graphics. Nathan Drake is shown waking up, you can see the wrinkles and sweat on his face, you can watch his face shadows change as he gets up, it's all strikingly realistic.

Luckily for some of us, in an interview with Eurogamer, Naughty Dog insinuates that a 30fps option will be available, as it is with the The Last of Us: Remastered.
"When we came out and said we're trying to hit 60, we saw that there's a lot of debate between that, so why not cater to both sides of that," Meyer said of the option to include a 30fps lock. "If you've really got a strong preference for that, why not provide that customisation for you?"
The interview also sheds light on the possibility of remastering the previous Uncharted games. Imagine going back to Nathan Drake's very first adventure, all in 1080p.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End doesn't have a release date yet, but will likely be coming in 2015. You can, however, check out the 1080p 60fps graphics later this month, when The Last of Us: Remastered releases July 29th.
