Get ready for adventure with this new PS4 slim console bundled with a copy of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

Uncharted PlayStation 4 bundles are nothing new, but on September 15, players will be able to get their hands on one of Sony’s new PlayStation 4 slims bundled together with Naughty Dog’s excellent Uncharted 4 for the base price of $ 299.99. Canadian gamers can look forward to a similar bundle that packs the system with NHL 17.

Our Take
This isn't Sony's new PlayStation 4 Pro, but Uncharted 4 is one of the best game's on Sony's current console, so this is still a pretty good deal for those who don't have a PS4 yet and aren't sold on the PS4 Pro.

Report: Uncharted Movie Delayed Indefinitely, But Not Dead

Sony's film adaptation of Uncharted was originally planned for next Summer, but the movie has temporarily been removed from the calendar.

Deadline reports that the movie is not dead – it has just had its date removed in order to give it more development time. In this way, the film seems to be drawing strongly from the source material.

The film's writer, Joe Carnahan, recently tweeted about the film's opening with some clear excitement.

Carnahan is also a director with credits including The A-Team, The Grey, and the upcoming Bad Boys sequel, Bad Boys for Life. That film is due in 2018 and there is speculation that the removal of Uncharted's date may be in order to make sure Carnahan can direct the film, when his schedule allows.

Our Take
In and around 2011, director David O. Russell was working on an Uncharted film project. His proposed Uncharted movie starred Mark Wahlberg as Nathan Drake and followed a family of treasure hunters. Many cried foul over how different this had the potential to be from the games, but that's still the Uncharted movie I would like to see. Russell is a great director – the best of those proposed for Uncharted to date – and an Uncharted story about a family of treasure hunters is pretty much what Uncharted 4 was, and it was great. That version of the movie is almost certainly dead and buried, but it is still the one I was most interested in actually watching.

See The Crazy Amount Of Work That Went Into Uncharted 4 In This Time-Lapse Video

Uncharted 4 is a gorgeous game, but sometimes it's easy to
overlook the beauty when you're getting chased through Madagascar by a squad of
angry mercenaries. Thankfully, Naughty Dog environment artist Anthony Vaccaro
has put together a
time-lapse video
of how much detail gets layered onto each and every location.

In the video's description, Vaccaro explains that the video
shows the environments transition from "the first playable blockmesh to final
art," though he says images from between the beta and gold master of the game
were lost. All in all it's a remarkable look at the meticulous work game
developers put into a project.

Bad Boys 3 Director To Pen Uncharted Script

Sony Pictures has reportedly named a new writer to tackle Nathan Drake’s adventures. Joe Carnahan appears to be handling the script responsibilities for the upcoming Uncharted film.

Carnahan won’t be behind the camera. He’s about to tackle Bad Boys 3 with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

The movie has gone through a number of revisions. In 2014, we reported that a script was being worked on by Safe House writer David Guggenheim. Earlier this year, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us creative director Neil Druckmann said that both films are quite a way out.

The Uncharted film will be produced by the team of Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Ari Arad, and Alex Gartner. Sony reiterated this morning the success of Uncharted 4 when discussing its financials.

Uncharted 4′s Multiplayer DLC And Patch Hit Next Week

Uncharted 4's first multiplayer DLC will be out next week on Wednesday, June 29, alongside Patch 1.08, and Naughty Dog will be streaming a preview through Twitch a day earlier.

This is the first batch of content arriving to multiplayer that Naughty Dog announced back in May. According to Naughty Dog's blog, the expansion will introduce a new map and several updates fans have been asking for. "We’re just scratching the surface by saying it includes new guns, new boosters, new taunts, new skins, custom matches, custom loadout names, a revamp to Ranked Team Deathmatch, and more!" writes Naughty Dog. A feature that the studio cites as "most requested by our community" will also be added. Those that already own the Triple Pack will receive more items with the MP Pack 1.

Naughty Dog plans two livestreams on Twitch to discuss these new additions. The first is happening on Tuesday, June 28 at 11:30 a.m. PT, which will demonstrate a multiplayer DLC preview. This will offer a "deep dive" on Ranked Team Deathmatch and the development team will answer community questions. The second will happen on Thursday, June 30 at 11:30 a.m. PT, and this stream will revolve around a post-launch discussion about the expansion.
