One Last Time

It's been a long wait since Uncharted 4 was announced on November 15, 2013, the day the Sony PlayStation 4 was released. After multiple delays, a new development team, and a couple of multiplayer betas, we have gotten our final trailer for the game that is just a couple of weeks from release. Though definitely short there are some interesting snippets of gameplay thrown around in the last several seconds.

Naughty Dog, the developers of the Last of Us and Uncharted series, have definitely come a long way in both their game design and marketing tactics. Uncharted 3 notoriously gave away some massive elements of the game in their trailers and gameplay demos, leaving little new information for the game's release. Neil Druckmann, the creative director of the new game, has said that they have "purposefully deceived" players with the story of their trailers in the past and has also implied that Uncharted may be no different. Druckmann was specifically referencing a shot that seemed to give away the climax of the game in the trailer for The Last of Us.

Uncharted 4 looks to borrow more than just marketing from The Last of Us. Though Druckmann asserts that this is still a light, friendly Uncharted game there is no denying that things look much bleaker than usual for Nathan Drake. Ever since the initial reveal trailer, the addition of Nathan's brother, Sam, has added a much more sinister tone to a usually upbeat franchise.

At the moment, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is planned to be the final game in the series unless a development team aside from Naughty Dog picks up where this game leaves off. Though nothing has been announced yet, Neil Druckmann has said that he wouldn't be opposed to someone else continuing Nathan's story but he's also stated that the ending to Uncharted 4 will make that near impossible to do. 

Following the drop of this final trailer, Uncharted 4, is just around the corner. With a release from Sony on May 10, 2016, we can finally play through the epic conclusion to Nathan Drake's story. Arguably my most anticipated game of all time.
