When Naughty Dog released Uncharted and Uncharted 2, both became objects of inspiration for video game developers looking to push visual design to the next level. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception debuted its first trailer at the VGAs today, and in a similar fashion people across the globe wonder how the series’ level of detail is so refined. So much, in-fact, that some have been saying that the recent trailer is all composed in CGI.
Naughty Dog has declared on Twitter that the debut trailer for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was all composed with in-game assets:
Yes, #UNCHARTED3 trailer was all from in-engine + actual gameplay. 11-1-11!!
As if Uncharted 2: Among Thieves wasn’t visually stunning enough, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception looks like another advancement in power. The lighting effects, facial animation, and cinematic qualities shown in the latest trailer are all arguably the best we’ve seen in the industry, and a solid addition to Naughty Dog’s expansive resume of games with outstanding presentations.
