Naughty Dog and Sony delivered at the official launch party of the PlayStation 4 as they announced that one of the most highly respected and lauded first-party titles from the PlayStation brand will be making an appearance on the newly launched, next-generation PlayStation 4.
The game made its debut during the live-stream of the PlayStation 4 event in New York, courtesy of GameTrailers. The barely-a-minute-long teaser trailer also worked as the official announcement trailer to let gamers know that the third-person, Hollywood-style blockbuster action is arriving for the next generation of PlayStation home entertainment consoles.
Unfortunately, not much is known about the game and the teaser trailer doesn't really reveal much other than the scrambled ramblings of bitter, angry man, not far off from a fanboy in the comment section of their favorite gaming site. Perhaps the trailer was meta-commentary on the life and times of fanboys?
Anyway, I can't say that the teaser trailer effused any excitement out of me... maybe a glimpse at a next-gen Nathan Drake sporting a million polygons, or a next-gen Sully saying “Are ya ready, kid?” (even though Nathan is old enough to be a kid's dad) or maybe Elena winking at the screen... anything more than what we were given. All I can guess is that Uncharted 4 will probably be another third-person action adventure game with some light puzzles, some fisticuffs and some platforming, just like Uncharted, Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3.
Still, I get that they wanted to keep things mostly under wraps and just wanted to feed gamers something so as to keep the momentum present, but we probably won't see anything of substantial worth until the Spike TV Video Game Awards next month to round out the year.
Considering that there literally isn't much else to say, all I can do is point gamers to some former trailers of Uncharted 3 to help keep the excitement contained until more details are revealed.
So when do you expect Uncharted 4 to launch on the PS4? 2014 or 2015? If I had to hazard a guess, I would say 2015 just so that they have some time to really iron out something special that isn't just a first-generation hack-job.
Well, I'm fresh out of words. There's nothing else left to say... you can watch the videos below if you want... ... ... ... so how about those Knicks, eh?
