Uncharted 4 Game Informer preview details

- Porting TLOU to PS4 helped Uncharted 4 development

- Small team working on it since U3 development ended, half the team moved to U4 after TLOU and the rest after Left Behind

- Takes places 3 years after U3

- At the start of U4 Drake is living an happy life with Elena, then Sam appears

- Drake thought Sam was dead

- Sam life depends on him finding an artifact from Henry Avery

- Drake feels indebted of his brother and he can't resist getting back on treasure hunting

- Story takes Drake and Sam to Libertalia "a mythic Madagascar colony purportedly founded by pirates"

- Says you're not going to spend the whole game on the island, teases snowy and urban enviroments

- Two rival hunters, Rafe and Nadine

- Rafe is a very different treasure hunter than Drake, with different morale and approach

- Nadine owns a private military company in South Africa

- Villains will play a bigger role this time

- "The lack of Sam being in Nathan life for so long is what's driven him in the last games"

- Sam is five years older than Drake

- Teases Elena and Sully

- Sam is even more reckless than Drake

- Sam is jealous of Drake, sees him as the 'better at everything little brother'

- Lots of rivalry between them

- ND didn't want to talk about Drake and Sam past

- Artifacts (collectibles) may contain notes poiting to more treasures/artifacts

- Enemies can grab your leg if you try to push them over ledges

- More tools besides Rope and Piton (metal spike)

- They're not ready to talk about them yet

- Wants to incorporate the tools into puzzles

- GI saw an extended demo with a new scene. Drake is beaten down while Sam is rested, they start arguing the existance of Avery secret, then something catches Drake's eye, he moves forward, pull some foliage, revealing a gray monument with a carving.

- Focusing on navigational freedom for this entry

- Showed multiple paths, one finding an extra cave, other bypassing a group of enemies

- Plenty of side stories if you're looking for them

- In the demo they showed Drake taking a more riskier climbing route, that almost makes him fall in the sea

- All paths have consequences, there's no "Golden path"

- Rehauled A.I system

- Compared Sam A.I to Ellie, but says Sam is a grown up treasure hunter, so he's much stronger than Ellie

- Trying to "explore what it's like to be with somebody as capable of Nathan Drake"

- Not giving a straight answer if this is Drake last adventure

- Still plenty of humour in the game

- Concept of set piece is "What's something impactful that we can do to switch expectations and how can we have it emotionally charged?"

......

[*]There are 60 different animations just of Drake picking up objects.

[*]Talk a lot about how weight distribution plays a big role in the animations

[*]You can attack enemies from all sides with unique animations to them, you wont magically warp in front of them if you punch.

[*]Lots of talk from Druckman on the cost of adventuring on Drake's life, it will be a major focus of the story. Compares his addiction to treasure hunting to a drug addict.

[*]All the new items they added were chosen cause it can help keep the pacing and gives you a better sense of exploration and adventure.

[*]Cutscenes are now all real time

[*]Tools will be used to enhance traversal and puzzle solving

[*]They said the large puzzle rooms from Uncharted 3 will still be there, they say U3 had the best puzzles of the series and they want to build on that.

Looks outstanding. I just hope my PC can handle this game on low settings.

This surely could be game of the year. Greatest of all time, possibly?

The Witcher series has some mesmerizing narrative that is rarely seen elsewhere. The fact that CD Projekt Red are retaining that aspect whilse introducing more open world elements into this next game is ever so alluring. Bags of confidence that they can pull it off, easily.

It's a shame they had to push the release date from Feburary to May, but if they need the time to stitch it together then fair enough.

Ratchet & Clank is going to be my favourite PS4 game I play so far. Graphics were out of this world. Looks like a Dreamworks film.

Any good games coming out for PS4 soon? Been kind of jealous of Xbox One lately and their exclusives. :/

The only recent big Xbox One exclusive is Quantun Break, that is not even released yet. Tomb Raider is only exclusive for now, and thats a good thing for PS4 users, because in some months they probably will release a definitive version of it, inclusing all DLCs that Xbox One users will pay for.

Good call on Tomb Raider. Really looking forward to it next year, the last one was great

The mrs' brother-in-law bought us an Xbone for no reason a couple of weeks ago. NO GAMES. I own everything I want on PC already.

I may get New 'n Tasty. The original is still fun.

Xbox One has more exclusives than people give credit for...

For starters they have two amazing racings games, one hardcore simulation on Forza Motorsport 6 and a more arcade driving experience on the excellent Forza Horizon 2. Both are the best driving games on current gen by far.

There is the powerhouse that is Halo 5 which has a good single player campaign but the multiplayer is receving all kinds of praise and I doubt any other shooter will be able to compete with it this holiday season. There is a crazy amount of weapon and vehicle variety and the shooting feels as good as Destiny or CoD.

Also, although Tomb Raider is only a 1 year exclusive, its probably the only meaningful single player adventure game scheduled to be released for the next 4-5 months (until Uncharted 4 comes out). And going by how good the last game did, the expectations are quite high.

And dont forget Killer Instinct Season 2 which was just released and going by how poorly received MKX was, many professional fighting fans are playing this while waiting for Street Fighter 5.

Then there are lots of quality games coming out as well. Below, Inside and Cuphead are three of the most anticipated indies and they are Xbox exclusives. Fable Legends has the chance to be a huge surprise. Quantum Break only comes out Summer 2016 but its quite impressive what was shown so far. New Gears in the making. Etc...

P.S: I dont own an Xbox One neither am I a fanboy!

Halo 5 is so bad in my books, maybe it appeals to others but not me.

The campaign is on rails and is one third cutscenes.

343 have refused to implement local-co-op, so now if you want to play with your friends you have to play online and they need their own copies. Fuck that.

The Requisition system locks out a lot of weapons, items and vehicles unless you play the game a lot. It is essentially turning the game into a grindfest that you need to spend hours and hours of time playing just to get the gun you want. It also provides incredible advantages to players that somehow luck out and get really strong one-use items. It creates an exclusive environment that favours people that have played the game longer. I don't know about you but I want access to all the guns, all the vehicles and all the items from the start. I want to play the gaeme how I want to play it, not how fucking 343 wants me to play it. I'm the consumer, not them. I do not like the inclusion of these faux-rpg mechanics into games lkie this. In multiplayer, I want access to want everyone else has access to, it makes the game more fair and more fun. Oh, and you can buy req points with real cash money. PAY TO WIN!

The game looks like nothing more than the milking of a franchise that should have ended with number 3. I'm so sick of it. I'm sure my complaints are things a lot of people don't care about but for me, they are important. I long for the days of old where the consumer wasn't taken advantage of.

I dont like Multiplayer shooting. So I only played the campaign and I cant really say about the things you are upset about. But all my friends are praising thw hell out of the multiplayer, saying they wont even buy CoD this year.

I really liked the single player, although the ending is a let down. But I am someone who thinks MGS4 is fantastic. I like those cinematic story lines with the nice dimb and extremely fun shooting in between. So I got what I wanted when playing in the Uni here for around 12hrs which is what the campaign lasts..

But yeah its not as good as the other Halos. I rate them as 2, 3, 4, 1, 5.

The only thing I hated about MGS4, was the ending.

"Snake had a hard life" - Otacon. What a perfect way to end the game but nooooooooo. Big Bossu had come out of nowhere kill Major Zero and die at a tombstone. That was weird and stupid. So was the microwave scene and Ocelot wanting the same thing as Solid and trying to kill him at every oppurtunity. STUPID, THEY WANTED THE SAME THING. REEEEEEEEEEE, FUCK YOU KOJIMAAAAAAAA.

Kojima has a weird fetish with Big Bossu and did everything he could to retcon Big Bossu going evil and insane in the 80s and 90s. I guess he is just bitter that Konami made him make the games past MGS2. Hell, MGS2 was a giant fuck you to the fans and internet culture. Everything Raiden done is made to clumsy and awkward in juxtaposition to Solid Snake being a badass, ergo making the fans bitter that they have to play Raiden whilst watching their favourite character reduced to a minor role.

I am the biggest MGS, you'll probably ever meet and the series disappoints me as much as it exceeds my expectations. So many missed opportunities.
