Report – Uncharted 4 trailer was in-game rather than a CGI cutscene

Sony unveiled Uncharted 4 earlier this week during its E3 press conference. We were concerned whether this trailer tease was an actual gameplay or CGI.

According to senior animator and coder for Naughty Dog, it was confrimed via Twitter that the unveiled trailer that was shown on Monday for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was an in-engine trailer. She confirmed that the trailer Uncharted 4 trailer we saw was in gameplay rather than a CGI cutscene.

She also confirmed that this was an in-game level, running in real-time on a PS4. CGI is not worthy of being labeled in UC4 in her words “it doesn’t look good enough.”


Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is scheduled to release in 2015 exclusively for PS4.
