Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Introduces Nathan Drake’s Older Brother [Gameplay Video]

Sony's PlayStation Experience event is in full swing, with the keynote presentation leading with one of the company's biggest 2015 exclusives. Game director Bruce Straley handled the live demo on PlayStation 4 hardware.

The visuals are certainly impressive, with detail paid to even the smallest items like the gun shoulder straps. The demo kicks off with an exploration segment, as Nate moves through a cave system.

Uncharted's humor makes the transition to PlayStation 4, with Nolan North giving us all those "Nate noises" to which we're so accustomed. Shortly after exiting the cave, Nate runs into armed troops.

A Thief's End introduces enhanced stealth mechanics using the ground foliage. Nate moves more seamlessly between melee and shooting, and now has a grappling rope that can be used while falling at specific points. Climbing has an upgrade thanks to a retrieved piton that can be used in certain walls.

At one point, Staley slips and Nate falls (dying, and falling through the world). Whether planned or accidental, it reinforces that the gameplay was live. 

The biggest surprise comes at the end when we find out who Nate is looking for. Meet Sam, Nate's older brother (above). We'll have more on Uncharted 4 from PlayStation Experience.

Uncharted Movie Gets A 2016 Release Date

Sony has moved around some dates in its movie schedule, making room for Nathan Drake’s big screen debut. Sony announced today that it will be releasing the film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s action series on June 10, 2016.

That date originally belonged to The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which Sony has now bumped back by two years. Spider-Man fans won’t be left out in the cold though, as Sony is planning a Sinister Six film for November 11, 2016.

Uncharted director Seth Gordon plans to start shooting in early 2015, though there’s no lead attached to the film yet. The screenplay is currently being written by David Guggenheim.

Uncharted will next appear on PlayStation 4 in 2015, and there are hints that it might be the last entry in the series. For more check out the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End trailer from E3.

Uncharted Movie To Begin Filming In 2015

In a new interview, director Seth Gordon details the production timeline for his movie adaptation of Naughty Dog's Uncharted game series.

In an interview with Zap2It, Gordon said shooting should begin "…very early next year. That's the plan."

He also talked a little bit about the game's settings, and said that the shooting would take place "all over the world."

Gordon is also still looking for a lead actor to portray Nathan Drake after Mark Wahlberg dropped out of the project after the departure of director David O. Russell.

Gordon said, "I want it to be a great actor. That's number one, and then if it's someone who has an actual jaw, that's even better. The game is so well done that you need it to live up to that. There's no way we'd do the inverse of that where it's somebody famous who can't [act]."

"It's going to honor the mythology of the game," said Gordon. "But I would say honor some of the most interesting stuff from the first one and build from there," he says. "There's some stuff that isn't in the game."

Our Take:
While I'm a bit concerned with the fact that this is the third director attached to the project, Uncharted is one of the game series that seems most suited to the big screen.

Actor Todd Stashwick No Longer Involved With Uncharted 4

If you saw the Uncharted teaser that premiered at the PlayStation 4 launch event, you heard the voice of actor Todd Stashwick. We recently reported that he was joining former Naughty Dog writer and Uncharted creative director Amy Hennig at Visceral Games to work on that studio’s Star Wars project.

In the wake of that move, Naughty Dog has decided to recast Stashwick’s role in the upcoming fourth installment of the Uncharted series. The actor has confirmed the news with IGN. Because so little has been shared about Uncharted, we don’t know how much of an impact this has.

In addition to Amy Hennig’s departure, The Last of Us lead artist Nate Wells and Uncharted director Justin Richmond have also left.

Our Take
Naughty Dog seems to be in a state of upheaval, and while the studio has asserted that the Uncharted 4 timeline is unaffected (at least as recently as Richmond’s departure), it’s hard to believe that the game will be ready in 2014. We’ll likely know more at E3.
