Uncharted Announced For PS4, The Last Of Us DLC Detailed
Nathan Drake is returning and I’ll be the first to say that I’m surprised, very surprised by this. Naughty has typically been of the disposition to do a trilogy and then move on to fresher pastures or at least not carry a series over console generations. Then again, after The Last of Us they could pretty much do whatever they wanted.
I’d also want to return to the light-hearted nature of Uncharted and Nathan Drake after The Last of Us. Last night at Spike TV’s PS4 launch event Naughty Dog co-founder Evan Wells and co-president Christophe Balestra introduced the teaser for the fourth Uncharted game, simply titled Uncharted.

You don’t see anything besides a map, some hints of a 15 year old betrayal and one grizzled, bitter voice-over. Presumably this voice belongs to the game’s antagonist. The trailer might just be of a map but Naughty Dog assures us they have upped the visuals significantly for this Uncharted.
One problem I have with this set up is that Uncharted 3 trailers also promised something a little darker that would really delve into Nathan Drake’s character and past but we never got much of that. Hopefully with TLoU under their belt Naughty Dog can craft something with a lot more character exploration to compliment the actual exploring you’ll be doing.
I do wish they’d opted to do something completely different instead because Naughty Dog has so much talent and ability as a studio, they almost certainly could’ve floated a new series as their first PS4 title.
Meanwhile, Balestra and Wells also announced the “Left Behind” story DLC for The Last of Us and it hits all the right notes. It features Ellie and her friend Riley Abel in a derelict fairground.
Uncharted has no release window just yet but The Last of US DLC will be coming next year.
