Naughty Dog reveals Uncharted for PS4 and new Last of Us DLC

Few details, but lots of hype.

At the PlayStation 4 launch event in NYC, developer Naughty Dog revealed new DLC content for The Last of Us and announced a new game in the Uncharted franchise for PS4.

The Last of Us DLC will focus on Ellie and is titled "Left Behind." Arne Myer from PlayStation sets the tone for this single-player DLC. "Joining Ellie on this new adventure is Riley, her best friend and also a mentor of sorts at the military boarding school. Just as The Last of Us focused on the bond between Ellie and Joel, Left Behind explores the bond between Ellie and Riley through a series of events that will forever change both of their lives."

There were even fewer details for the next Uncharted title. A short trailer featured a voice that was not Nathan Drake's (though Todd Stashwick was revealed as the voice actor). Developers from the game said if you listen carefully to the trailer's dialogue, you'll find some hints to the game's plot. Here's a transcript (and we'll have the full trailer soon!):

"Some chains can never be broken...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."

Graphically, the developers described the game as "big jump ahead" and the game will "push story-telling and performance capture."

The PS4 will be released in North America in a matter of minutes, but for more on the next-generation system, check out GameSpot's video demonstration on how to install a new hard drive, an in-depth look at the new UI and dashboard, and a general hardware overview.

If they have the new consoles they won't be back for DLC. They tell themselves "oh, I'll still play my 360/PS3," but the reality is they'll collect dust while their owners are playing DR3 or Knack or whatever. I ponied up for the 'season pass' for DLC that now won't be out until god knows when for a system that'll be moved out of my entertainment center next week.

I'm fully expecting this to be a brand new story, otherwise they would of called it Uncharted 4, right!?!

It's not like people are going to stop playing a game just because a new console's out.

Last of Us DLC coming out after PS4 is basically a waste

Having literally just completed Uncharted 3 a few days ago i wonder if the part about "when all your lies collapse around you" relates to the section in Uncharted 3 where Marlowe is talking to drake and mentions that Drake isn't his real surname.

Now, if it's good, I'll bite...but I was enjoying where ND was going with the Last of Us. Don't get me wrong, probably my favorite series ever made...but I don't want the games to become stale. I'd rather remember them as amazing adventures.

well, let's leave it and say that's your opinion. but i think i'd rather play something mindless and fun, in e.g. prototype. though i did have some 'mindless' fun throwing laura off' a cliff the first second i received the right to do what i want.

The recent Tomb Raider was fantastic. Just because you like mindless games doesn't mean we do or that you're right.

Ever knows middle aged rich woman with pyramid boobs is so much better than woman with decent backstory.

Is it just me or does the font look VERY similar to the latest Tomb Raider?

we didn't need to know her origin as much as the game made it seem we did. that's what fan fictions are for... although give a nerdy pubescent teen ideas to making a fan fiction and he'll end up making a 'creamed' pants factory.

oh god. please don't pull a tomb raider and turn drake 'young, vulnerable' and overly dramatic.

I'm very happy to see Uncharted is returning, and that it's being done by Naughty Dog.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this the first time ND will have developed for the same franchise across two generations? I know there were Crash games on PS2 but they were developed by another studio, right?

I'll probably get the dlc for The Last of Us as I love the game and I'm always up for extra content for the campaign. I'm expecting the gameplay to be very stealth orientated if we're only playing as a couple of kids.

Last of us DLC and Uncharted Coming to PS4....................is the greatest news of the year. :) and we as gamers always trust on Naughty Dog's Projects. Uncharted is definitely an Xbox killer.

If Nathan Drake's voice is not nolan north then you shouldn't call this an "uncharted" game.  I very much hope that nolan north is the voice of nathan drake.  loved the uncharted series.....hatted last of us. bleh, terrible terrible game.

Nice to hear that ND is getting Uncharted to the PS4 and I expect ND to show off a trailer for next Month Spike TV VGA [Video Games awards] since ND always show up anyway.

@Reza Armstrong Actually it hasn't changed to charted... It's still Uncharted - but it can't be called the same game as Uncharted 1. Hopifully, I like to see that as a sequel (and let's hope that it is really Nathan that aged; else there will be a bunch of petitions saying that we want the old voice actor back).

@danmanpro Read the article it clearly states that the voice in the video is not Nathan Drake, so no worries

@danmanpro Bloody hell it's one teaser trailer and you're already jumping to the notion that North is getting replaced??? As if Drake is the only character that exists in the Uncharted universe. Just listen to the words being said. They're too stern and dark to be Drake. The story will probably revolve around some previously unseen character from the past.

@danmanpro Mickey Mouse has had 5 different actors provide his voice over the years.  It's nothing new to replace a voice actor with another one.  It's their job to be able to create unique character voices and to make themselves sound like established characters.  Nolan North is not absolutely necessary with the right replacement.  Most people would never even know the difference.

Beyond that, I do appreciate Nolan North's talent and contributions to video games, but I'm getting tired of hearing him everywhere (Nathan Drake, Desmond Miles, Prince of Persia, Deadpool, Saints Row IV's 'Nolan North' option for crying out loud!).  Game developers need start hiring a greater variety of voice actors.
