From 30,000 To 1 Million: Naughty Working On PS4 Game

uncharted 2new

Naughty Dog used 30,000 poly character models for Uncharted 2 on PS3. On PS4, however, the venerable firm’s working on a game that requires 1 million poly character models. Did you get that? One million… I am official ready for PS4.

PSLS discovered a Naughty Dog job listing for a Character Artist which states: Prior professional experience with normal map extraction of human models for next-gen games.

The same listing also says that “this digital sculptor will be responsible for making million poly models game ready, and support highest-res characters for renderings”, and since the job opening is for a character artist, it’s more than likely the million polygon models refers to character models.

If this is true, I don’t have words to explain how amazing PS4 games will look. Remember God of War III? Well, said game used just 20,000 polygons, and again, Uncharted 2 used 30,000…

Another aspect which must be considered is the game they’re crafting for PS4 – is it Uncharted 4? It certainly isn’t The Last Of Us, as said game might be released this year, and early next for the latest – especially since Naughty Dog’s been working on it for the past two years.

It must be Uncharted 4….Drake’s Love Story..

Okay, the love story part is silly but my goodness! 1 million polygon models?

    this kinda makes me want to buy a ps4 rather than just moving on…
    I mean is this whole next gen console thing going to have games look better than the bests on PC? I doubt it but one million is a lot

    @ALL: Yeah, this is going to be one amazing piece of work. I’m guessing it’s Uncharted 4.
