Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End gameplay showcased at E3

Fresh Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End gameplay has been showcased at E3.

Building our excitement ahead of the Uncharted 4 release date sometime in 2016, Sony has given us an extended demo of the final entry in the series.

Set in a tropical paradise on the coast, our hero Nathan Drake and Sully find themselves embroiled in a firefight en route to Sam’s tower.
There’s the usual explosions and gunfire, with a few new exciting melee attacks thrown in for good measure, especially when Drake lands on someone from a great height.

The gunfight soon leads into a car chase through the city, with Sully and Drake in an open top 4×4 running through fences and poles as they attempt to escape.

The pari even end up crashing a market with their car, causing some context specific dialogue to make the crowd chuckle.

Exclusive to PS4, Uncharted 4 looks fantastic, with realtime shadowing and dynamic lighting effects put to good use in the demo.

As Drake and Sully reach Sam’s tower, they realise he’s trying to flee on a motorbike, but is being chased by trucks filled with armed guards.

It’s then that Drake swings from the vehicle with a grappling hook, flying from hold point to point along a bridge until he comes to a sudden stop.

Apart from the gameplay footage, Sony didn’t give us any new information about Uncharted 4.

Hopefully that early 2016 release date is still good.
