DigitalFoundry has released frame-rate test for Uncharted 2 PS4 Remaster for the Uncharted, which can be viewed below. Note that it is considered work-in-progress, as the game is still in development and certain changes or improvements may occur.
Bearing in mind that the Uncharted games are built on the same engine that is so problematic to port straight over to PS4, our contention is that Bluepoint built its remasters on the same principles, leveraging all the lessons learnt by Naughty Dog. Certainly, based on the performance profile we see in the clip, there are some commonalities with the way that The Last of Us Remastered presents itself. In the second half of the clip, there are some frame-rate drops - and it seems that advanced physics work and lavish utilisation of transparent alpha textures does appear to cause some issues.
Overall, this first teaser for the Nathan Drake Collection does exactly what we suspect it was intended to do: it demonstrates that the older PS3 Uncharted titles still have much to offer in the PS4 era, and it highlights that Sony's decision to employ Bluepoint Games was extremely shrewd - this huge project is clearly in good hands. However, most importantly of all, this brief teaser video has re-ignited memories of cherished last-gen gaming moments, experiences we want to revisit at 1080p60. In this sense, the clip is as frustrating as it is exciting - it leaves us hungry for more.
