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.

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.
