Hey everyone! I know I’m a bit late, but I’d like to point out a couple of trailers that came out of the recent Playstation Experience event.
The first is the trailer for the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. This is our first look at gameplay for developer Naughty Dog’s next big blockbuster title, and I must say it looks fantastic. I’ve long considered Uncharted to be the best franchise that Sony has in their lineup, and this new entry looks as strong as its predecessors (as least as far as the moment-to-moment gameplay is concerned). The biggest change I see is that the level design seems a bit less linear than in previous Uncharted games. I’m not convinced that this change is really necessary – I never thought that the linearity of the other games was holding the franchise back – but I don’t think it hurts anything either, and I trust Naughty Dog to deliver a fine experience regardless.
The other bit of news that caught my attention was the announcement trailer for the PS4 port of Bastion, the first game from developer Supergiant Games. PS4 owners have already had a chance to play Supergiant’s latest title, Transistor, but this is the first time that Bastion is appearing on a PlayStation platform. I highly recommend that any PS4 owners who haven’t had a chance to play this game in the past pick it up on PS4 when it is released. Bastion is a phenomenal game with an interesting story, endearing characters, and a wide variety of weapons that let you tailor the combat to your playstyle. I’ve enjoyed multiple playthroughs of the game in the years that I’ve owned it, and just writing about it now makes me want to go back and play some more.
