Uncharted 4 comes with some trippy visual filters0 Comments
Uncharted 4 has been gearing up for its launch for so long that aside from the plot there's very little players don't yet know about the game. Surprisingly, however, Naughty Dog has just shown off some of the game's visual filters, which shift the style of their admittedly-gorgeous title with mildy-interesting themes like "Negative Land" to the downright trippy look of "Rainbow Fun Land."
While the utility of some of these themes is certainly questionable, no doubt there will be some players who will get a real kick out of playing the game with the "Chalk Dust" filter, which covers everyone in a chalky-type dust, or "8-Bit," which gives the game pixellated, voxel-y graphics and distorted sound. They're available right from the start, too, so players could conceivably play the game entirely in "Afterlife" mode, where all characters look like zombies.
They're not all silly, of course. There's a "Thief Vision" filter which gives enemies a red highlight and allies a blue highlight, and the "Cel Shaded" filter looks so cool that it may provide for a fun way to re-imagine the game's world for that second or third playthrough. And yet, I still can't imagine who or what the "Rainbow Fun Land" filter is meant for. Perhaps it exists just to be unusual. If so, well, that's just fine.
