Whether you watched the Sony press conference from the E3 show floor or from the comfort of your own home, chances are the insane Uncharted 4 gameplay demo caught your eye. The demo got off to a rocky start with a technical glitch, but quickly recovered and showcased the first gameplay footage of the 2016 PS4 action game. As if that car chase wasn’t enough, today gamer’s get to see the other half of that Uncharted 4 action sequence.
Although the E3 gameplay reveal cut off as Drake crashed into a bridge for the fans watching at home, E3 attendees able to make a special appointment with Naughty Dog had the chance to see how the rest of the scene plays out. The initial shootout and chase scene is about the first third of the action sequence and, although it might be hard to believe, things got even crazier in the following minutes.
A special Naughty Dog Twitch stream scheduled for this afternoon reveals the unedited version of the action scene. As you might expect from a series with a reputation like Uncharted’s, the reality lives up to the hype…
The full gameplay trailer aired at the beginning of the stream, but the Naughty Dog team is still offering insight about the gameplay and answering the occasional question asked in the chaotic Twitch chat.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that this action sequence is beautifully choreographed. The tension builds quickly and offers an occasional release before throwing gamers right back into danger. There is the franchise’s trademark wit and humor to help keep things from getting too heavy, but players still need to stay on top of the action to stay alive.
Even with player interaction, the scene still plays out better than a lot of action scenes in summer blockbuster films. With any luck, this is just the first taste of what Drake’s last adventure has to offer and gamers will be in for dozens of hours of intense action scenes just like this one.
Check back to see if any other news breaks during the Q&A session.
