[dropcap size=small]A[/dropcap]nd it’s beautiful… But that shouldn’t be a shocker to anyone who’s had experience with the Uncharted franchise. In these whopping 15 minutes of gameplay, we get a look at Naughty Dog’s prowess in the details. Everything looks amazing, from Nathan Drake’s foot slipping while climbing wet rock, to steadying himself on walls in passing through waist high water. Stealth and combat systems also look improved, along with the ever intelligent AI making a strong return. Animations look fluid and textures are immersive. One of the elements that set Uncharted apart from its competitors is the masterful storytelling. In the trailer we also get a brief glimpse of Nathan Drake’s older brother who will , no doubt, play a main role in the plot line of A Theif’s End.
The preview starts off slow and beautiful but really picks up the action around 6:50.
