Uncharted 4 release date reported to be March 9, 2016; features include new collectibles and locked 30fps in 1080p resolution and Photo Mode


The continuation in Nathan Drake’s story, “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End,” may be released in March 9, 2016.

According to Playstation Lifestyle, a Reddit user received an email from Amazon Germany which originally listed the date and the price of the game at 69.99. However, the listing now only reads that players should wait for a specific date.

Developer Naughty Boy previously announced that the delay is due to the expected “high standards” that they need to deliver to fans, “After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don’t take lightly this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for. So we’ve made the difficult choice of pushing the game’s release date.”

Moreover, the developer took to Twitch recently to show exclusive gameplay footage and answer some questions posed by fans in a panel session held afterwards.

Co-lead designer Anthony Newman revealed that the final chapter will have a locked 30 frames-per-second rate and have the resolution of 1080p. Instead of giving it a varying 60fps, the decided rate will allow for a smoother experience no matter what the gamers want to do with their characters.

Another confirmed detail is the inclusion of the Photo Mode feature which will also be added to the upcoming HD remastered version of “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” which will hit the market on October 7, alongside a multiplayer beta version for Uncharted 4, both are exclusive for Playstation 4, iDigital Times reports.

Meanwhile, rumors have it that developer may also be working on having Collectibles for the series.

A representative from Naughty Boy reportedly told Gamereactor during Gamescom 2015 that, “Collectibles are maybe in the game. We’re pretty early in development. We are thinking about it.”
