Uncharted 4's directors, Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann took to the official PlayStation blog to explain: "Since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, more of the game and story have come together, and it's become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned. 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. Giving us a few extra months will make certain that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End not only meets the team's high standards but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title" they continued". The duo added: "Thank you for your patience - we know the extra wait will be excruciating, but you'll see it will be worth it as we reveal more about Uncharted 4 over the next year. The team at Naughty Dog will be heads down working through 2015 making sure that Nathan Drake's story gets the closure it deserves. Come Spring 2016, you and Nate are in for one thrilling, emotional ride".

CliffyB's new studio teases the pre-alpha of 'Project Bluestreak'

CliffyB and his team at Boss Key Productions are still tap, tap, tapping away with "Project Bluestreak", but the team showed it off during PAX East, releasing a proper teaser of it on YouTube.

 

 

As you can see, Unreal Engine 4 is powering Project Bluestreak, a new first-person arena shooter. It looks pretty incredible, but I'm hoping it's more than just pretty graphics. I'd love to see some destructible environments, and more. But, for just the graphics alone, Project Bluestreak is shaping up beautifully for its pre-alpha state.

The screenshots aren't the largest, but we can see some intricate details that had my mind blown. In the screenshot above, you can see the coil of the phone cable, and the individual holes where your fingers go to dial on the phone. Underneath the table, you can easily see the power point and the power cord running from it.

In the screenshot above, we have a look at the detail of the entire room, where on the left we can see countless parts sticking out where they look individually detailed. The shadow detail is incredible, but it's that attention to detail that I'm really impressed with.

The damage system in Star Citizen is fully next-gen

We're three months into 2015 so it's about time that we get a deeper look at Star Citizen, with Cloud Imperium Games showing off the super impressive damage system, which you can check out in the YouTube clip below.

 

 

As you can see from the minigun shooting the spaceship, little parts of the ship become damaged. Once a heavier, or stronger weapon is shooting or blasting at the ship, the hull is breached and you can see parts of the ship underneath. It was something I didn't expect, and I actually raised an eyebrow when watching it. Impressive stuff to see happen in a game made for the PC only.
