Screw photorealism! Uncharted 4's visual filter options are gloriously daft

By Matt Wales on at

As any self-respecting Nathan Drake fan will know, Uncharted's post-game graphics-tweaking options have become something of a tradition.

Ever since the original game's release way back in 2007, players have been able to unlock and apply various filters to Naughty Dog's masterful visuals once the final credits have rolled - rendering Nathan's delicate stubble with sepia hues or blowing out the world with 'next-gen' bloom.

Uncharted 4, it turns out, takes the idea of filters to a whole new, wonderfully ridiculous level, offering 13 render options (available from the off this time) that give the game's visuals a startling makeover.

If you fancy a fiddle, you can fill the world with jaunty rainbows, slap a surprisingly appealing Borderlands-esque dollop of cel-shading onto the game or, in a personal favourite twist, go properly old-school and fashion everything from ascii. You can check out a few more filters below.
