The upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End by Naughty Dog will feature nearly endless facial expressions and will have similar game length as its predecessors.
Speaking to RocketTVBeans; the studio’s Eric Monacelli and Arne Meyer said that Playstation 4 allowed Naughty Dog to do a lot with the rendering tech which resulted in more life-like and realistic characters. In Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, characters have nearly endless facial expressions; similar to what humans do:
One of the coolest things about the PlayStation 4 is that were able to do a lot with the rendering tech to increase the fidelity of these characters so they look more lifelike and realistic. Probably one of my favorite things [about this] is how these characters emote so all the facial expressions and the little things how humans do all the time like how your eyes move or even your lips stick together when you smile. We can all of this more precisely because now we have the power of the PlayStation 4. So it’s…I don’t want to say endless but nearly endless what kind of facial expressions we can get on our characters.
Speaking to the game’s length, Naughty Dog said that it is hard to determine the game’s length at the moment because it is not near completion, but considering the fact that all 3 Uncharted games have roughly been of the same length; Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End should also be the same:
We are quite ways from finishing the game so it’s pretty hard to quantify how much long the game is going to be in the end but all of our Uncharted games have been roughly of the same length. We have gone a bit longer in recent times so I would expect somewhere in that ballpark.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is scheduled to release sometime next year in 2016 exclusively on the Playstation 4.
