Uncharted 4 Announced For PS4
Are you putting off the purchase of a next generation console for now? That might be a wise choice, since the truly essential games won’t start coming out for several months. Even so, Playstation 4 finally launches tonight at midnight, and to make it clear it’s something you’ll probably want to get your hands on, the company celebrated the launch with an announcement that Uncharted 4 is a thing, and it’s going to be exclusive to the new console.
The game was announced during an online event earlier tonight, and though details were scant, a trailer accompanying the announcement was sufficiently intriguing. While Indiana Jones-style maps of Africa and Madagascar appear onscreen, the voice of… someone… complains about having been abandoned and left for dead for some 15 years, only to angrily declare “you owe” me at the very end. It’s enough to assume sight unseen that this was the voice of a former associate of Nathan Drake come to collect on an old debt, and enough to make me, at least, forget all about the frustrating second half of Uncharted 3. Let’s be honest though, none of us can really stay mad at Uncharted, can we?
Here’s the trailer.
And yes, that does sound suspiciously like Kevin Conroy, right? But it’s actually Todd Stashwick, best known for playing Dale Malloy on The Riches, as well as numerous other roles, including M’Fashnik on Buffy!
Tomorrow, we’ll dig into the history of Madagascar and try to figure out what, if anything, the Naughty Dog team might be building on for the latest Nathan Drake grave robbing adventure. Until then, care to speculate? I’ll start: Uncharted 4 will be about intelligent dinosaurs.
