Sony releases a brand new dev diary showcasing how the team at Naughty Dog plans on ‘pushing technical boundaries’ of the PlayStation 4 with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Admittedly, aside from major releases like Bloodborne, PlayStation 4 owners haven’t been treated to much in the form of exclusive games. With that said, it won’t be long before this oversight is addressed, as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will soon be in the hands of dedicated fans of the franchise and casual players alike. There’s little question that it’s been a long wait for Nathan Drake’s latest, and (judging by the gameplay trailers released thus far) it looks like it will be pushing Sony’s current-gen hardware to its limits.
Of course, since that’s a very marketable point, Naughty Dog has made just such claims about Uncharted 4, which it backs up in the latest dev diary for the forthcoming title. With such visual peeks behind the curtain coming forth, it’s obvious why Naughty Dog just recently pushed back the game’s release in order to ensure a quality experience. Admittedly, as disappointing as that announcement was, it does appear that the final game will end up being worth it.

Having a look into the development of a triple-A game series like Uncharted is a rather fascinating way of bringing fans into the loop in terms of what they can look forward to from the finished product. Particularly, the vehicle-centric missions and the newfound A.I./cover-based mechanics that will occupy the bulk of the experience – both of which appear to work rather fluidity. In developer diary videos like this, however, gamers really do get an amazing look behind the scenes of their favorite games and it’s something that more developers should do in order to familiarize gamers with the efforts required to make a title like A Thief’s End.
With Uncharted 4 going gold just recently, the excitement amongst fans of the IP is almost palpable. This game has been one of the most anticipated pieces of software for several years now, which is exactly why it’ll be such a relief to see it realized on store shelves. Of course, whether or not this installment will be the last we see of Nathan Drake remains to be seen (despite claims from Sony and Naughty Dog that it wraps up the iconic character’s story), but it’s safe to say that it will at least be his most technically impressive.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will arrive exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on May 10, 2016.
