Uncharted 4 Filters Take The Game In New Directions
The Uncharted series has always been billing itself as a more lighthearted, humor-filled sort of series, with such easter eggs like the morbidly obese Donut Drake (RIP) and more being a series tradition. Now, Uncharted 4 filters appear to be coming that can take the game in whole new directions.
Naughty Dog earlier sent a video to Eurogamer that shows us something new to the Uncharted series: filters. The Uncharted 4 filters will allow you to put the game in any kind of look that you want, including the following:
Thief Vision (enemies turn red while the good ones are blue)
Rainbow Fun Land
8-Bit (with sounds in retro style)
All of this can do a variety of things to the game, whether changing the way that the game plays, adding mechanics, or turning on the silliness switch (with the aforementioned “Rainbow Fun Land” or the zombie mode.)
In a Triple A game like Uncharted you wouldn’t normally anticipate mutators to be a possibility like the Dead Rising 3 arcade expansion released by Capcom in the summer of 2014, but Naughty Dog appears to be letting their creativity run wild with all of the filters that you can put in for Uncharted 4.
Unfortunately the Eurogamer video only shows a few of the Uncharted 4 filters (mainly the Cel Shaded but also some others) and we don’t know what other ones like Rainbow Fun Land or 8-Bit or Afterlife will look like, but they will most likely be adding a great deal of replayability to the game as you play through it each time in various modes.
The filters are also fitting considering the already-revealed Crash Bandicoot Easter Egg that’s been shown in the game.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be releasing on May 10, next Tuesday, for the Playstation 4, and will be the finale of Nathan Drake’s story.
