The stunning landscapes of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Views from the 6th parallel

The newest Uncharted is the series’ debut on the PlayStation 4, and the move to new hardware really shows. Uncharted games have always been beautiful, but Uncharted 4 is just stunning; the characters move in a way that feels real, and their faces look, well, human. It’s impressive to watch.

But for me, the real star is the locations. Uncharted 4 has you jumping around the globe — from Italy to Scotland, Panama to Madagascar — and each new area is breathtaking, full of scenes that look like postcards, only you can explore them. The game has a fairly robust photo tool, that lets you tweak things like depth of field and add-in filters, but for me the best part is the ability to remove all of the people and just gawk at the scenery. The images end up looking like Nathan Drake’s really classy Instagram feed.

You can check it out for yourself when the game launches next week on the PS4. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite views.
