Uncharted 4 is targeting 1080p, 60fps

Monday, 21 July 2014 15:23 GMT By Sherif Saed

Following Naughty Dog’s first attempt at making a 1080p, 60fps game in the form of The Last of Us: Remastered, the studio is now working on Uncharted 4 and is looking to get the title to the same standard too.

uncharted_4_a_thiefs_end_3

Speaking to Eurogamer, Naughty Dog’s community strategist Arne Meyer said that the work they did on The Last of Us: Remastered helped them understand the strengths of PlayStation 4 and a lot of that will go into Uncharted 4.

“A lot of it was because we could try something out on our PS4 engine,” he said. “How far can we do it? Can we do a 1080p, 60fps game? We always wanted to do that, but for the types of effects we wanted to put on screen 720p30 was just fine. Now with the push to go even further that’s not fine enough. So we’re trying to rise to meet that kind of challenge too.

“I think that’s what we want to push for with anything we’re doing on this generation. That’s sort of the mandate from when we were building the PS4 engine. Let’s see if we can do this and hit it. We hit it with The Last of Us Remastered, so why not stick with this?”

Despite the previous Uncharted titles’ excellent optimization on PS3, having an action game of that calibre run at 60fps is a major advantage, something which the developer will have to decide if they want to maintain going forward, as it is usually much easier to sell fans on better graphics than it is to sell them on a smother frame-rate.

    They can’t seriously mean they considered making a 720/30 game for PS4. That would be funny as hell.

    ”We hit it with The Last of Us Remastered, so why not stick with this?”

    Yes, you managed to make a last-gen game run at 1080/60, UC4 will be a different thing entirely. There is no way in hell it will end up looking like the trailer at E3 if they aim for 60fps.

    Either the E3 trailer was indeed bullshit or they are talking about 900p @ 30fps.
    The PS4 hardware can NOT render those visuals at 1080p 60fps. I just hope they don’t go for a downgrade and then insult us with lame excuses or asshole denials.

    The average consumer doesn’t give a shit about frame rate, they just want shiny new graphics. Only random internet forumites like you guys care about this shit. Other people have actual lives with more important things to worry about than their “rig” LOL

    I am puzzled, Uncharted is one of the most cinematic games ever, why the fuck are they targeting 60fps when they should be targeting 30fps for a cinematic filmic feel!?

    ^ One of the funniest excuses I have seen this gen.

    If you think about it though they have to make excuses like that, it wouldn’t be good for money if they admitted there machines aren’t quite up to the challenge like they made 90% of there customers believe, and all these consoles are are ‘money’.

    If Sony came out and said “Look, we aimed for 60fps in The Order and the PS4 couldn’t quite reach it” (which is what is true, anyone who believes that developer is in my books a fucking idot) word would spread like wildfire that ‘Even Sony thinks there console is underpowered’.

    They need to spin their little lies and bend the truth here and there to make there console sound like the best thing ever to the mass audience who buy things on a whim just because there friends are getting one and they want what there friends have/ want ‘the best’ console.

    Buuuuut, it won’t be 1080p 60fps with the E3 video they showed us, it just won’t.
    Naughty Dog are awesome and made my favourite games on the PS3 but every E3 they showed a game which wasn’t really an exact representation of what the game truly was, they were always downgraded, which this E3 showing will also be but to an even bigger degree than usual.

    People like you are hilarious, The Wulf is crazy, but when he talks about ‘herds’ and ‘sheep’ he is talking about people like you, and he is absolutely right in that regard.

    But anyhow, I’m sure you won’t even get to read this as you have a busier life than all of us ‘forumites?’. I wish I had a life like yours, where I didn’t care about the quality of media I consume, shit I bet at home you still rock a 50hz 600p CRT monitor because who the fuck cares about resolution and framerate right?

    You are an idiot. Well done for personifying the stereotype of a true console peasant.

    Carmack said after the release of Rage that next gen is gonna target 30fps and that Doom 4 will look even better than rage since it targets 30fps. But now they’ve announced that Doom will be full hd and 60fps. And for Uncharted 4 it’s good if they can hit 60fps gameplay at full hd with the visuals being as detailed as the e3 trailer. I dont know how some people here think that they know what the PS4 is capable of. They outright DECLARE that PS4 cant pump out such visuals at full hd 60fps.

    #15 9 months ago
  16. Hcw87

    @15

    If PS4 could handle those visuals, Watch Dogs and Division would never have been downgraded, and BF4 and Watch Dogs would run at 1080/60.

    There is a reason why the visuals of those 2 games got downgraded btw, neither Sony or MS wants to show the massive graphical difference PC has compared to consoles. The PC version even has the E3 2012 visuals in the gamefiles, but they disabled them for ”stability reasons”.

    Those ”stability reasons” are just Sony and MS moneyhatting to tone down the PC version.

    @16 1st party studios work exclusively with their console and are best versed with them. With each passing day they learn to better optimise their engines. The difference between the PS3 games that came out in 2007 & 2013 is gargantuan. On other example Oblivion amd Skyrim on 360.

    The owners of the consoles are always hanging on the edge of:

    ‘Eventually the graphics will be amazing’.

    ‘Soon the developers will master the consoles and we will see true next gen games’

    And then this goes on for years until it becomes:

    ‘Yeah, well the consoles are old tech now, we don’t expect them to ouput mind blowing visuals’

    ‘We will get mind blowing visuals, good framerates and 4K when the next gen of consoles comes along in the next couple of years’

    …And the cycle continues.

    …plus what Stretch said isn’t far from truth.
    i know at least 2 people,hardcore gamers in their 30′s who don’t go technical at all.
    30 or 60 fps doesn’t make a difference to them(heck i even wonder if they can tell it),they only care about graphics. when playing Uncharted they can’t tell which segment is pre rendered and which is in game.they’re just satistified with the result.
    what can we make out of those?clueless?…a litle bit yes(they get on my nerves :) ),but if you think about it, they devote an already huge chunk of their lives,free time to gaming,they can’t or don’t want to go beyond that point due to other obligations, hobbies.
    their free time with gaming is just that…gaming.
    and it’s kind of obvious a huge percent of the gaming community is like this

    @18 I’m absolutely in no hurry for 4k and as a matter of fact only high end graphics card can do 4k in a good way. What i want is to experience “wow”. I dont care if its full hd or 900p, if it running at 30 or 40 or 50 or 60hz. How the devs deliver the “wow” is upto them. Killer Instinct on XBO runs at 720p & 60hz and that game is a great fighting game. Second Son is full hd and 30hz(im not sure) and is gorgeous. I don’t count how many pixels are making the scene of the game I’m playing, I look at the entire picture. If it delivers the Wow, then I’m happy with it. Sure 4k might look it ultra super duper great, but I’m happy with what i have.

    That has nothing to do with optimisation for the consoles though, that’s just the developer evolving, getting better at there job and creating better engines.
    That’s exactly how an old 8800gts from 2006 is still able to plow through games like BF4 at medium settings and Tomb Raider 2013 at DX9 ULTRA SETTINGS!

    Youtube it if you don’t believe me.

    Now tell me that isn’t amazing?

    That same old GPU which rocked Oblivion is also putting out Skyrims visuals 5 years down the line!!!!!?????
    Has the developer optimised the game for that specific card? Nope. They simply got better at there job all around, stop giving so much credit to your gaming machine, when really its just the developers getting better at there job on EVERY platform, optimisation can only get you so far, its not magical.

    I don’t have anything against console gamers, I make fun of stupid PC gamers as much as I do about stupid console gamers, it’s just that with the console community there is more content to make fun of, like the debate of framerate and resolution, its hilarious.

    I think the people who cannot (or should I say refuse to) see the difference between the two is massively amusing, considering the fact the only people who really say they cannot are the people who mainly game on a console, coincidence? I don’t think so.

    Not every game no, but alot of games should have it, especially big blockbuster action titles which actually benefit from the higher framerate and res, it’s all about progress, I’m capped at 60fps 1080p at the moment constantly, because of my 60hz 1080p monitor, its a massive upgrade though considering I only built a gaming PC 2 years ago and had only gamed on a console since I was old enough to play games… but eventually I want to start gaming at 75/120hz and 1440p, and slowly progress the quality, it’s all about getting better, which is what the new consoles are for? Otherwise why would we even have a new generation?

    It’s just funny to see these people fighting progress.

    I actually have the mod installed already and its awesome!

    If I remember correctly it was a simple download and install from an .exe file, you said you got it from Nexus? because I’m sure that’s where I got the mod from also.

    Did you do the direct download or did you use the download manager?

    If you used the download manager, redownload it directly and then unzip it using your preferred programme, winrar, 7zip, peazip etc etc to your desktop and then just double click the exe, it should ask you for the download location of your game and then just navigate to C/ Program files 86/ steam/ steamapps/ common/ witcher 2 and then continue with the installation.

    Once it is installed you should be able to activate which section of the mod you want installed in the launch menu in the ‘mods’ menu when you first open the game on Steam.

    Hope this helped, I’m bad with instrcutions.

    It’s pain in the ass, I bought witcher 2 on disc when it first came out, so I don’t have it on my steam library.

    It should be those same steps but instead installing it to your installation folder that the disc installed to, is the problem finding the installation folder?

    Man, if they remove some graphical fidelity, if they get rid of some bells and whistles or effects just to achieve fucking 1080p I will be sorely dissapointed. Every pc gamer can agree that they would gladly lower resolution if it meant they could tick up the graphic quality an extra notch in a game.

    @zoopdeloop Aa an “older gamer” myself, I have a theory to your point, cause what you say holds true for me.
    I’m not a “tech numbers guy”. I just want to play games. Good games at that. I have enjoyed the Uncharted series very much. I find the games to be cinematic and simply a blast to play. I would need someone to show me the difference between 1080p and 900p. I would also need some schooling in framerates. 60 FPS vs 30fps. I’m quite sure there is a huge difference in all these number comparisons, but I don’t know it and could care less. My hypothesis to this reasoning, especially for older gamers, especially for older gamers is the fact that we’ve spent more time with the hobby of gaming. I’ve seen and played Pong. To go from that to playing Halo or Uncharted, do you honestly think I gives a shit about 1080p and FPS? I feel fortunate enough to behold all the gaming beauty that is created now. But what do I know? I’ve just been gaming for over 30 years…

    Higher framerates/refresh rates not only feels better/have less input lag, but they’re easier on the eyes.

    I can safely say that after getting a 144hz monitor, i pretty much no longer get headaches.

    @majormayhem70 actually I’ve been a console gamer for years and didn’t exactly get the meaning of “60fps”.hell, two years ago there wasn’t any sign of framerate debates as far as I remember. Now last year after playing Mirror’s Edge and Resident Evil:Revelations on my laptop in 60fps I had some of my best gaming experiences of my life,thanks to the smooth gameplay.I really shudder at the thought of playing the next Mirror’s Edge in 30fps,it’s just like a nightmare after playing the previous one in glorious 60fps.the parkour of the game only feels right in 60fps,smooth,fluid and fast gameplay.so 60fps is definitely a game changer.I would be glad if the developers allowed us to lower the resolution in consoles so that we could play in 60fps.I take the next Mirror’s Edge in 720p/60fps over 1080p/30fps anyday.

    @Game Hunter The sad part is that we’ll probably see more games in 1080p 30fps in the future. Friends of mine that fully understand all this video game tech talk have all stated exactly what you said you’d prefer in your games. 720p 60fps. Ever since “resolution gate ” developers are pushing for 1080p at the expense of framerate. Developers don’t want to succumb to the scrutiny of having inferior resolution. Gamers are the ones blowing this resolution thing out of proportion, and it seems developers are under pressure to deliver 1080p.

    Question to gamers.
    Is it more important to have higher resolution at the expense of framerate or locking a game in at higher framerate at the expense of lower resolution? (Assuming that the game has to sacrifice one over the other)

    #71 9 months ago
  72. Panthro

    @majormayhem70

    I would lower resolution and graphical fidelity to get 60fps any day.

    Its gameplay over visuals for me, and as framerate actually contributes to gameplay it only makes sense I punch for more frames.

    #71.

    it depends on the game and the playerbase it’s trying to sell it’s game to.

    higher resolution at a lower framerate is always the safest bet unless they are creating a multiplayer game that’s trying to be abit competitive.

    optimized 30fps is fine for singleplayer games (no camera tearing)

    #73 9 months ago
  74. HansKazan

    panthro, you do realise just having 60fps doesn’t guarantee smooth gameplay.

    “I think the people who cannot (or should I say refuse to) see the difference between the two is massively amusing, considering the fact the only people who really say they cannot are the people who mainly game on a console, coincidence? I don’t think so.”

    that’s because televisions have upscalers in them and desktop monitors don’t.
    anything that isn’t native on a desktop monitor will look abysmal, the tv will suffer alot less.

    that’s probably where their arguements come from.

    also framerate gets less and less important the further away you are from your monitor or tv.
    considering the average console player sits quite a decent range from their tv, they should actually have a hard time seeing it unless they have trained eyes.

    if you think i’m joking experiment for yourself.

    i think you should look more at yourself before judging other people, because you are a part of the “stupid people” when you post ignorant stuff

    @HansKazan yup I played Splinter Cell:Blacklist on my 32 Samsung HDTV and the graphics were meh to me.then I went and played it on our 46 Sony EX720 Full HD 3DTV and both the framerate and resolution were upscaled by the TV even though the game was locked at 720p for X360.the TV which is played on really makes a difference.

    I game primarily on consoles but i’m on pc too. I can clearly see the difference between 30fps & 60fps, but in most cases i’d still prefer 30fps. I don’t care about having top tier graphical & visual settings at all. The whole “cinematic effect” thing isn’t bullshit; higher framerates tend to make everything smoother at a cost of making it look cartoony & less realistic, which can shatter immersion for some people. Just saying

    I see the problem Naughty Dog has. The average gamer is wowed by jaw dropping graphics rather than a polished game that runs smooth and does not crucify your eyesight. For me, the game must be smooth and free of screen tear before they even think about layering on the eye candy. A torn game is a bust game.

    People judge games by what they view on Youtube. A smooth 60fps experience is just not going to be visible in a HD Youtube trailer running at 30fps with a lot of video compression. A game with lots of eye candy splashed around the screen is going to look more appetising. It’s a real problem. The Last Of Us Remastered is having the same problem. How do you demonstrate subtle polish to people online when everything has to be compressed to a network bandwidth.

    I really hope Sony and Naughty Dog stand firm and bravely weather the storm because in the end the message will drive home and players will turn to Sony if they want quality console gaming that does not strain the eyes.

    The PS3 suffered badly towards the end because 3rd party devs pushed the console way to hard, chasing eye candy at the expense of horrendous screen tear and stuttering frame rates. I actually stopped buying games in the latter years unless they were 10/10 AAA games because I considered them all bust. The only 3rd party exceptions that ran great were AC3 and GTAV. If we just get the same ripped stuttering games again it will kill the games industry.

    @Panthro
    That’s a strange point of view you have about programmers. Optimising code is their job. If they get better at their job, code is better optimised. More bang for the buck. You seem to think optimisation is only a thing you do to a specific platform in order to make it perform at it’s best. Code optimisation runs right through computer programming from start to finish at every level.

    You rightly state that optimisation can only get you so far. Once it’s maxed out 100% efficient that’s as far as you can go. You incorrectly state that even old GPU’s run Tomb Raider on ultra. The truth is that only about 5% of the latest cutting edge GPU’s could run Tomb Raider on ultra. TressFX caused the frame rate to drop through the floor and the hair started to misbehave as the processor struggled to compute it, so most PC gamers had to turn it off. The PS4 ran TressFX perfectly at 60fps in the remaster. Optimisation could not do that alone, it was helped by powerful hardware and a unified memory system.
