Uncharted 4 will have a new level of “openness” not seen since Jak 3

Z-Giochi.com has managed to get their hands on the latest issue of PlayStation’s Official Magazine UK, which reveals some new gameplay information on Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated upcoming title Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

One of the more interesting details revealed in the magazine is the games new level of “openness”. The developers have stated that they are aiming for a level of “openness” in the game, similar to Jak 3. This means that players will be able to explore the maps and uncover more information on the games story, as well as other small details.

The team has also introduced a “grappling hook or axe” in Uncharted 4, which can be utilized by series protagonist Nathan Drake. This will aid Drake in climbing, which has been made more difficult compared to previous entries in the series. Players will have to make sure Drake stays balanced when he is climbing.

OPM have also noted that the demo version of Uncharted 4 ran at only 30 frames per second. Naughty Dog had mentioned earlier that obtaining a 60 fps rate isn’t easy, and they are willing to sacrifice this for “gameplay quality”. Developers Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley stated that though a 60 fps frame rate will be hard to achieve, they are still willing to give it a shot and reassess accordingly so the game looks good.

The Last of Us developers have also confirmed that the upcoming title will have increased “texture quality”.  Again this was revealed previously by the teams lead character artist, who noted that the games graphics are “really close to film right now”. Naughty Dog is known to push the envelope when it comes to graphics, and they plan to do the same with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
