Actor teases Uncharted PS4

Todd Stashwick tweets numerous images of himself in motion-capture suit for upcoming Naughty Dog game.

Uncharted actor Todd Stashwick, who plays a "significant" but unknown character in the upcoming Uncharted game for PlayStation 4, has teased the project in a series of images on Twitter and Instagram.

One image shows Stashwick donning a full motion-capture suit with a message saying, "The guts the glamour the glory that is Uncharted PS4."

Another image depicts a dummy wearing a motion-capture suit with a Gala apple in its hand, though it is unclear if the apple is in any way connected to the game's plot.

A third image posted on Instagram shows another dummy with a fake AK-47 in its hand. "He never had a chance. He'll be missed," Stashwick wrote.

Stashwick performed the voiceover in the teaser trailer released this month for the new PS4 Uncharted game. In the trailer, he gives a monologue that suggests someone, somewhere wronged him.

"Some chains can never be broken," his character says. "I lost 15 years...buried alive, erased. You left me, rotting in that hellhole and never looked back. But you can't outrun the past. And when it catches up, when all your lies collapse around you...I'll be there...sifting through the wreckage...You owe me."

Naughty Dog has provided only vague details about what to expect from the new Uncharted game, saying it will "push storytelling and performance capture." The game's graphics are also said to be a "big jump ahead" of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for PlayStation 3.

The new Uncharted game for PS4 is being written by Amy Hennig, whose credits include various Legacy of Kain and Jak & Daxter games, as well as past entries in the Uncharted series.

Stashwick's film credits include You, Me, and Dupree and Along Came Polly, among others.

Seriously can not wait for this game. The series is a system seller for anyone in their right mind.

I have to wonder what the point is in dressing dummies in mocap suits though, unless they're using them for drops from heights.

Amy Hennig?? Wtf!!!?? Who is this girl??? Correct me if I am wrong but didn't Neil Druckmann wrote the script for the first 3 UC games??

That tells me that this game might not star Nathan Drake :( and god knows how the story will shape out with this new writer :/

My sincerest wish after reading this is that I could personally thank Amy Hennig for her contribution to video game script writing and her role in the Legacy of Kain series, which I consider to be one of the most important achievements in modern gaming.

I'm sure they really wanted to say, a jump ahead of Uncharted 2.  Uncharted 3 was a jagged mess.  Only the desert level looked good.

@Navardo95 Amy Henning has been with Naughty Dog for many, many years.  She undoubtedly worked on every Uncharted.  I'm sure it'll star Nathan Drake.  You're worried about nothing.  =P

@Navardo95 These big budget titles (be it games or movies) are usually written by a team of writers, not to mention they'll usually bring in different people to work on the script once the core plot has been established. Hennig's been working on Uncharted since the very beginning along with Druckmannand is probably one of the more public faces of the team. (I'm surprised you've never heard of her.)

I certainly don't see how there's any reason to jump to the radical assumption that Drake is out.

@kozakon There have been plenty of good prequels.  Zelda Skyward Sword, Metal Gear Solid 3, Resident Evil 0, Crisis Core, God of War:  Chains of Olympus, etc.  I'll agree that there are far more that suck than those that are good, but being a prequel doesn't automatically make a game bad.

@kozakon Whaddyknow, turns out prequels SUCK. In general. Only exception I can think of is Resident Evil 0, but the happennings there happened only a day prior to the main events, so not really a prequel even.

@hippiesanta Why would he have twins with Chloe? That wouldn't make a lot of sense. Obviously... Well, I think it's obvious that you're joking, but still

@Elann2008 It wasn't really a jagged mess, but I'll agree that Uncharted 2 looked considerably better in my opinion.  Uncharted 3 had considerably better looking effects though.  It just had much less detailed level design and character models looked worse.

@Elann2008 uncharted 3 was amazing you over dramatic bitch just because it wasn't as good as uncharted 2 doesn't mean it is a "jagged mess" to call it average would be lying to call it good would be lying to call it great would be lying the only word to describe ANY uncharted game is masterpiece and I don't know what you mean by "looked good" but uncharted 3 is one of the best games in the ps3/360/Wii gen and graphically is #1 of any gaming console in besides the Wii u Xbone and ps4

@GreekTheGeek While I agree with you, this is the EXACT reason why I didn't preorder a PS4 because the launch games are terrible.  I will be buying my PS4 in March when Infamous is released :)

@Elann2008 @robbiejones devs have already said its much more then nearly the same power some anonymous developers have said the ps4 is about 40%-50% more powerful then the Xbox one and yes they are anonymous so they don't lose there job for telling the truth edge(gaming website/magazine) reported this they were edges trusted industry contacts who were actual developers plus anyone can easily look up the hardware of the 2 the ps4 is vastly superior

@vduong942 @robbiejones if you think GTA V showed the true power clearly you own a 360 some of our ps3 exclusives made GTA V look like dirt still GTA V is an amazing game

@vduong942 @robbiejones lol GTA V showed the ''true power if the PS3?'' it looked like shit and had crappy animations... The Last of Us did, not GTA xD

@tom2750 @Elann2008 @robbiejones I wonder why Phil Spencer(the xbox head) was even refusing to believe that the PS4 is even 30% more powerful than the Xbox One....

You can see he was lying as 90% of the Xbox One titles doesn't run at a native 1080p whereas its the exact opposite for PS4..
