It seems like Naughty Dog studio has pulled their socks in order to deliver the best gaming experience not in terms of the story, but also in the race of Graphics, Physics and facial animation. The latest news which is coming from the studio is good enough to proof that how they aimed to cross the boundaries this time with their most anticipated games among players Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The protagonist face is featuring up to 500 joints. Naughty Dog’s Josh Scherr, in an interview with GamesTM magazine, explained that the studio is trying hard to provide realistic facial animation to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End: Drake’s Face features 500 facial joints
Scherr explained that:
“We have completely renovated the facial animation. In previous games like Uncharted and The Last of Us, the characters were from 90 to 100 “joints” in their faces. Now, all the faces have 300 to 500 joints. This allows us to be more detailed and more faithful, so as to give greater emphasis to what the characters say, and use poses that we could not use before. It allows us to better tell our stories, animate our characters – we hope that all of you will notice that it will be something more than just a technical feature; something that binds the emotions the characters.”
Josh Scherr, is one of the scholars for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s end, and as he clarified, having more realistic animations permitted players to perceive and recognize feeling in the characters. A late tweet made by Naughty Dog, that offered performing artists Nolan North and Troy Baker, teased an emotional scene.
More Life-like facial movements will permit Naughty Dog to depict the on-screen characters exhibitions to a much more noteworthy degree, bringing about giving a much deeper and sincerely moving knowledge, that will make players feel closer to the game’s characters and more put resources into the story.
After the previous announcement the game will make its entry into market in Spring 2016.
