During the second interview of the newly started series from Sony, Conversation with Creators with Will Wheaton, Naughty Dog's Anthony Newman, who is the co-lead designer of Uncharted 4, stressed once again that they are using real-time cutscenes for Uncharted 4.
Uncharted 4 will feature real-time custcenes
“We’re actually doing real-time cutscenes in Uncharted 4, which is a new step for us,”
“You’re not going to see those black bars that we used to have in between gameplay and cutscenes. That’s going to let us be so much more expressive and really get that seamlessness between the storytelling and the gameplay. Which we already do very well, but it’s going to allow us to take it to that next level.
The incredible detail and emotions will be present on Nathan Drake's character model at all times
“That super great-looking Nathan Drake that’s in the cutscenes–that’s going to be the guy you have the whole time. The lighting model is nearly identical. All of that emotion you get across in the cutscenes, you’ll have in gameplay all the time.”
The astounding detail and emotional responses will surely give players a stronger connection with the character, making you feel like you are controlling a real person, that responds accordingly in any different situation. This could result in a far more immersive experience, that despite the linear nature of the game will feel much more dynamic and alive.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will release exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in Spring 2016. We will bring you any new information on Uncharted 4 as soon as it becomes available.
