E3 2014: Uncharted 4 runs at 1080p, Nathan Drake features 'double the polygons' of Joel

Naughty Dog has announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will run at 1080p and is targeting 60fps.

Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, the company also confirmed that protagonist Nathan Drake is made up of substantially more polygons than Joel from The Last of Us.

"That's Nathan Drake rendered in full 1080p glory, using the power of our PS4 engine,” Naughty Dog said, in light of the recent trailer shown at Sony’s E3 presser.

"All footage you see in the trailer was captured completely in engine. We’re targeting 60fps for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and as you can see, the visual fidelity for our character models will reach new heights. In fact, thanks to the power of PS4, right now Drake's Uncharted 4 model is over double the polygons of Joel from The Last of Us PS3."

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is scheduled to ship for PS4 in 2015.
