Regardless if you’re a PlayStation 4 owner or not, chances are, you’ve seen Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End trailer for E3 2014. Would you believe that what was shown in the video was all in-engine and in real time?
This was confirmed by GamingBolt at E3 by Naughty Dog Studio Coordinator Rodney Reece and Lead FX Artist, Keith Guerrette. Not only that, but the setting where the trailer takes place is an actual level in the game, as well.
Over on Twitter, Corrinne Yu, formerly an engine programmer from Bungie, and now handling coding and animation for Naughty Dog, reveals that the trailer is an in-engine real game running on a real PS4; and she also adds that the trailer doesn’t look good enough to be pre-rendered CGI.
