I guess I'm OK with that. Gives me more time to try and finish 2 & 3 before I start 4. GameStop employees are probably loving this, constantly changing out signage.

In a way I'm glad because I'm getting the Division and not only Uncharted 4 coming out this close so is a few others waiting in the wings that I might look at....

That's already been confirmed in a gameplay demo last year.

Uncharted 4: Gameplay Video, Hands-on Report

Posted by Sid Shuman on Apr 04, 2016 // Senior Manager, Social Media

Recently, Naughty Dog gave some nice people the opportunity to play a brief demo of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Luckily, they invited me too! Here’s a full playthrough of the demo, but be sure to read on afterward for my thoughts.



First things first: the scope of Uncharted 4’s gameplay and exploration appears to be far, far larger than prior games in the series. Naughty Dog is describing this new approach as “wide linear,” and it allows for more freewheeling navigation without sacrificing the narrative-driven pacing the studio is famous for. Compared to past Uncharted games, Uncharted 4’s world feels truly huge and, well, uncharted.

It’s beautiful, too. Everywhere I looked, I saw the fingerprints of Naughty Dog’s unmistakable artistry. While navigating a rented 4X4 up a perilous mountain trail, the tires dislodged rocks that tumbled down the hillside. Eep! Later, I slipped on a dirt hill and Drake’s jeans and shirt glistened with mud.

Speaking of Drake, the veteran thief has never looked — or moved — better. After dropping from a tall height, he stumbles awkwardly; while pulling a winch, he smoothly passes the cable to his other hand when he changes direction; he even shifts gears in his 4×4 at the appropriate times. These tiny details stack up over time, steadily creating an illusion that you’re somehow controlling a real guy on a very ill-advised adventure. It’s uncanny.





In the demo I played, Nate, Sam, and Sully navigated the treacherous backroads of Madagascar searching for outposts where legendary pirate Henry Avery may have hidden his treasure. At any point in the demo, I was able to hop out of the 4×4 to investigate ruins or search for collectible treasures scattered throughout the sprawling landscape.

One detail I loved: When I left Sam and Sully in the 4×4, I listened to them trade quips and compare notes on treasure hunting as I prowled off in search of loot. Uncharted 4 is plastered with these tiny bits of narrative wallpaper, and based on what I played, the game is immeasurably richer for it.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End lands exclusively on PS4 on May 10 — if this demo was any indication, it’s gonna be one hell of a ride.

So it's more like Tomb Raider. We have come full circle... or something.

At any rate, my biggest problem with this series is how "hold-your-hand" linear they are, so this is a welcome change, IMO.

I just checked my account, does anyone else's Amazon order say it's arriving April 26th? It would be awesome if they accidentally sent me a copy two weeks early.

Yeah, mine says that as well. No way it's right though.

Yeah, mine's been saying that for a pretty long while now, even though right beneath it, it says "Release Date: May 10th".

Just curious, is anyone picking up either of the special editions? I actually think the statue looks pretty good. Currently I have the special edition preordered, so the statue would be an extra $32.

Don't care about a Drake statue but that steelbook art looks awesome.

I guess I should check my dates. I still don't have a PS4.

I was at Costco yesterday so I took a look, and they had a vanilla console with no games. What the heck?

Looks like physical copies are starting to leak from retailers in Europe. The MP isn't active but people are playing the campaign.

I found out i'm going to Korea for a business trip a few days after this releases I'm already behind and haven't had a chance to play Quantum Break, and never did finish my additional play through of Uncharted 3 Remastered either. Dang it!

I'm planning on getting some PSN credit from the Target sale next week. That'll be a good enough deal for day 1 of the release (about $10 off)
