New Uncharted 4 Screenshot Features Sweaty Drake, Teases Announcement

"Are you ready to seek your fortune?"

41 Comments

Sony has released a new screenshot for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. It features series protagonist Nathan Drake, who looks like he's stumbled across something interesting. If his track record is any indication, it'll be treasure that a whole bunch of angry people with guns will really want to take from him.

No Caption Provided

The screenshot was posted to the PlayStation Twitter account along with the message "Are you ready to seek your fortune? February 24, 9AM Eastern," setting up a reveal for later today. Naturally, GameSpot will bring you the Uncharted 4 news being teased here the moment it breaks.

Uncharted 4 is scheduled to arrive in late April 2016 exclusively for PlayStation 4. Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann recently talked about saying goodbye to Drake and the Uncharted series, as well as the game's branching dialogue sections.

"The thing I want to make sure we're clear about is that we're not making Mass Effect," he said. "Uncharted has a very specific story, it has a very specific ending that's very definitive to the franchise. But every once in a while we felt a dialogue tree would really bring you more into the scene.

"There's something about Sam asking Nate about his old adventures that's like, it would be kind of fun to have Nate--and therefore the player--pick which story they want to tell first," Druckmann said. "And there's a few other instances like that where it felt like a dialogue tree was just going to get you more into the scene and make it more interactive."

Druckmann also previously said the events of Uncharted 4 mean it would be "really hard" for Drake to star in a future game. Before that, Uncharted 4 lead writer Josh Scherr said it's "hard to imagine" the series moving forward without Drake in the lead role. It looks like Nate is in for a rough time.

@kvally: So far I've seen 1 gameplay trailers, 2 story trailers, and 1 trailer with both. Try turning on your PS4 or going online and look at UC4 in the store.

I'm going to have to finish the slog through UC3 sometime in the next year. It's pretty decent, but I'm sick to death of the awful combat (fisticuffs on the ship with bullet sponges anyone?). I will not be buying UC4 at full price, but to me it looks like it will be the best of the series so I do intend to play it at some point

@andyvecc011: Don't be a troll. Anyway one good thing about the system wars is each first party game feels the need to push the graphics on each system so both are getting games that look good and are optimized.

Terribly overated franchise and very repetitive! Average at best. TLOU however was a masterpiece, this? This is just "meh".

@Myron117: Uncharted was very well done and set a high bar. But yea, The Last of Us was amazing. One thing I've noticed, gameplay-wise, naughty dog games have nailed melee. Every other third-person shooter has a very rubbish melee system (MGSV being an example, as well as Ubisoft games, EA games etc.). Naughty dog could still improve of course but so far their melee is the best especially in TLOU, it was so brutal, realistic and grounded. Not only is the melee great but so is their shooting mechanics, it feels very realistic and up close and personal. No other game feels like that. The other best thing is the fluidity of the character movement and smooth interaction with objects around them - they have definitely nailed that too.

@Myron117: I guess everyone's entitled to their opinion... For you it's mediocre, for me it's amazing. I guess naughty dog's job is to have more "me"s than "you"s, and apprently they do.

Graphics look s**t, looks 900p not 1080p

On a serious note I'm considering getting the collection because I've never played them before, but I tried playing the new lara croft (well the one before rise of the tomb raider) because it's supposedly similar and got bored of it.

Is this likely to happen with uncharted? I want to like it because I've heard good things but can't bring myself to commit to buying 3 games.

@Frogster8: Uncharted is more linear than Tomb Raider, you won't be checking off objectives on your map. It's a bunch of set pieces and shootouts. If you get the collection start with Uncharted 2. I'd say it's much more fun than Tomb Raider...

With TR people were just surprised it was good. And it was, just nowhere near the level of Uncharted. The characters in TR is crap, you care about them in uncharted. Puzzles are very similar and involve burning shit in TR, Uncharted has a lot more variation. TR has skill trees and collecting upgrade material, Uncharted you just find a gun off a dead body and go. TR didn't make me laugh or care about the story, Uncharted I wanted to see what would happen and couldn't wait to meet up with my group. Uncharted has more variation in the visuals and locations as well.

Didn't play the new TR yet so don't know how much that improved.

@girlusocrazy: really? Id feel weird missing the first one completely. I don't know if I could haha

To be honest that's what I didn't like about tomb raider, I'd rather be going through shootouts, is it similar to the last of us?

@Frogster8: Well it's like Indiana Jones, you can jump in anywhere. Anyway I guess give the first one a shot, it's good but the series really takes off in 2.

Yeah the pacing is similar to TLoU, memorable characters like TLoU, except less downtime it seems like. TLoU has lots more stretches where you get supplies and try to find a way across the terrain. Uncharted has some sections where you have to figure out some ancient mechanism and the characters talk to each other and nice vistas to look at but seems like TLoU dedicates a lot more time to that.

There's cool shootouts in various strategic locations or in the middle of a burning building where crap is falling everywhere, or a sinking boat, some pretty epic fights and chases.

@girlusocrazy: thanks for all the info, I've just bought it on Amazon prime I'll have it by tomorrow haha I can't wait

I love Uncharted, but I also want to see what Naughty Dog will come up next. All their games are great.

@leon-strife: Same, the last of us was great too. But I want to see something else new. So it would be great if they stopped with uncharted after this.

He's a furball, like me. About time too, as I'm getting bored of all the waxing twinkies in computer games.
