If you thought the past Uncharted games kept you on the edge of your seat, then you are going to be in for a rude awakening when you get your hands on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The new story trailer just released today introduces us to more of the plot line in Uncharted 4—and it’s more dramatic and riveting than any of the other games. Check out the trailer below.
From watching the trailer, you definitely get that sense of brotherly love in times of chaos that you often see in the TV show, Supernatural, between characters Sam and Dean. Sam and Nathan in Uncharted 4 deliver a very similar feeling, knowing that no matter how much crap they have to wade through, they’ll always be there for each other.
The story in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, presumably the last installment of the series, follows Nathan Drake as he had just pulled himself away from the dangerous occupation of treasure hunting and settled down with the love of his life, Elena Fisher. But then, his brother comes along and drags him into yet another adventure, putting him into the very profession he tried to escape.
Recently, CinemaBlend reported on a story where Uncharted 4 and Naughty Dog were put under scrutiny after someone from Ubisoft Montreal posted a picture on Twitter of a stolen Assassin’s Creed concept art image in the new Uncharted 4 story trailer. While some thought the move on Naughty Dog’s part was horrendous, others saw it as an Easter Egg and found it laughable.
Personally, I am a huge fan of the Uncharted series and the story trailer finally gave me insight into what we can expect from this installment. I am sad to think that this could be the last game for the Uncharted series. Naughty Dog hasn’t been one to crank out sequels as much as possible to wring them of the money they can bring in. I can sense that the relationship between Nathan Drake and his brother, Sam, is going to be the centerpiece of the narrative—I just really hope they don’t kill his brother off. They almost did that to me with Sully and I nearly lost it. I am emotionally bound to the characters in Uncharted and being an older sibling myself, will probably come to like Sam.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be releasing on April 26. You can view the article about it on the PlayStation Blog.
