Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End goes “far beyond” anything developer Naughty Dog has been able to do in previous instalments.
So says director of communications at Naughty Dog, Arne Meyer, also saying that Uncharted 4 is the “version of Uncharted [Naughty Dog] has always wanted to do”.
Uncharted 4 is undoubtedly the most ambitious yet in the famed series. Naughty Dog writer Ricky Cambier says the game is the first time the studio has really been able to take advantage of the PlayStation 4 hardware, having only worked with it for The Last Of Us‘ PS4 port from PS3.
“We get to push that hardware, and we offer one of the most personal stories for Nathan Drake yet,” he said.
“When we develop games at Naughty Dog,” says Meyer, “we’re always iterating on top of what we’ve done before, so Uncharted 4 is the natural evolution for us. When you look at all of our games across all of the entries since it started on the PlayStation 3, now onto the PS4, you’ll see that we’ve matured with our games, we’ve matured with our characters.”

There’s less than two weeks now until Uncharted 4: A Thief‘s End hits PlayStation 4. The lead-up to the launch hasn’t been without controversy, however: some gamers got their hands on early copies of the game after shipments were stolen.
