We came full circle when the Tomb Raider reboot was trying to be uncharted and now it seems that we've looped back around and come full circle once more with Uncharted 4 looking a lot like the Tomb Raider reboot.
There is no denying that it looks a lot like the Tomb Raider reboot. It certainly looks like Drake is stranded on an open world island, exactly like tomb raider.
The game definitely looks amazing but I don't think Uncharted needed to go open world. Part of the appeal of uncharted is the varied environments and globe trotting aspects of the game.
It's a bigger world, not open world. It looks just like uncharted 1, just better and bigger. It looks nothing like tomb raider.
It only makes sense that uncharted would be a bigger game on next gen console without the limitations of the last gen tech.
Sounds like the op hasn't been gaming long :)
