Uncharted 2 to have "prettiest snow you've ever seen"

Developer Naughty Dog has reiterated that the team are looking to make Uncharted 2’s snow and ice as visually impressive as the stunning water effects found in Nathan Drake’s original PlayStation 3 adventure.
Speaking in a recent interview with Gamereactor.se, Naughty Dog producer Evan Wells boasted that with the new improvements to the Naughty Dog Engine 2, "[Uncharted 2] will have the prettiest snow you've ever seen in a game!"
A rough translation reads:
"With Uncharted 2 and the Naughty Dog Engine 2 we can do much more, do it better and do it faster," said Wells. "For example, we can see more polygons on screen, which allows us to create areas with even more detail than in the previous game."
"In addition, we save no effort when it comes to the rendering of snow in Uncharted 2. It should be a banner to me to be the prettiest snow you have ever seen in a game!"
Given that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is one of the most beautiful and graphically advanced titles seen this generation, it will be interesting to see what Naughty Dog can bring to the table for the sequel.

Looking forward to this game, definitely a step up graphically from Drake's Fortune.
- 9:54am EDT - April 18th, 2009
this game is going to be good!
@1 how does this annoy wii fanboys when this is a playstation 3 site?
- 10:08am EDT - April 18th, 2009
I believe it too.

It's shameful that the original has not shifted 10m copies, it certainly deserves to, it's way better than Halo3 or Gears2.

If Naughty Dog say it's going to be the best snow in games, then it probably will be. Roll on November

The best snow that I have ever seen on a game was SSX 3 for the PS2, I was very impressed at how life like it looked.
- 12:00pm EDT - April 18th, 2009
yeah for pretty snow and struggling console
- 12:01pm EDT - April 18th, 2009
Lol, they haven't reiterated anything. This is the exact same interview that was published in danish gamereactor, they just translated it to swedish this week... (I am swedish and can confirm it - it's the same questions and same answers as before)
- 12:18pm EDT - April 18th, 2009
day 1 for me. ND rock !
- 12:43pm EDT - April 18th, 2009
Considering how good Uncharted 1 looked, I can believe it.
However, I don't just want realistic looking snow, I want it to act like snow. Pieces that hit Drake to not pass through him, but to actually stop and stick.

The snow in Resistance: Fall of Man is the best I've seen so far (even though it came out so long ago). If Uncharted's new snow will be even better, I'll be psyched!
- 1:11pm EDT - April 18th, 2009
yea the game looks great so far, and if its even half as good as the first one it will still be amazing
@1 get over the 1st spot, it doesnt prove anything except that you have no life and wait for new topics to show up just so you can get the 1st spot
@3 please do the world a favor and castrate yourself

The day that selling 21 million consoles in 2 years 2 months is struggling is the day that the world ends.

Yay! Falling snowflakes are one of the only things I like about winter.
