During the inaugural PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas, Sony and Naughty Dog revealed the first 15 minutes of footage for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

According to Sony, “although we are still in the pre-alpha stage of development, everything you see in the video is in-game and in real-time running at 1080p and a stable 30hz.” Wow for a pre-alpha stage this is looking better than most “next-gen” games. The environment, water and lighting effects look amazing in the footage.

The gameplay features a mix of gameplay elements from other games such as Assassin’s Creed III (the ability to hide in tall grass) to Tomb Raider (using a pick to climb rock walls).

Some questions do come up when you watch the trailer like, “is that man calling Drake his ‘little brother’ his older brother?” and “why is the ‘Rhode Island Pirate’ and his treasure so important to the Drake brothers?”

As for the latter question, this is what Wikipedia had to say:

Thomas Tew, also known as the Rhode Island Pirate, was a 17th-century English privateer-turned-pirate. Although he embarked on only two major piratical voyages, and met a bloody death on the latter journey, Tew pioneered the route which became known as the Pirate Round. Many other famous pirates, including Henry Every and William Kidd, would follow in Tew’s path. Much of what is known about Tew is derived from Captain Charles Johnson’s A General History of the Pyrates,[3] which is a mixture of fact and fiction. When reading about Thomas Tew it is important to be able to distinguish between truth and story.

Captain Johnson said “Tew, in Point of Gallantry, was inferior to none.”

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End comes to the PS4 in 2015.
