Well, Naughty Dog have definitely come a long way since Crash Bandicoot. The story trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is finally here, and it looks incredible.
Stories in videogames have evolved over the years, to the point where developers can now get away with releasing trailers that feel like they could be for actual movies. That’s exactly what Naughty Dog have done for beloved treasure hunter Nathan Drake’s final adventure – it’s enough to get anyone hyped.
I should also point out that Uncharted 4 is looking fucking gorgeous. Wide open vistas, amazing underwater effects, and a hearty dose of explosions and high speed chases are enough to get the blood pumping in any movie trailer, but we actually get to play this shit when it comes out on April 27.
Uncharted 4 marks the end of Drake’s adventures, and probably the end of the series as we know it. I’d put good money on at least one of the characters kicking the bucket before the credits roll.
