Today, the PlayStation 4 launches in America. Sony and Naughty Dog have seized the moment when excitement is at its peak, and have unveiled a new game in the Uncharted series. The announcement was joined by the release of a teaser trailer that, in typical teaser fashion, presents more questions than it does answers.
A number of things are worth noting: for a start, the trailer simply pans across a map of our South African coastline – you can see “Cape of Good Hope” written on there. The camera then pans up to Madagascar before finally revealing the Uncharted name. Then there’s the fact that there isn’t a subtitle or a number tied to the game; so far this is simply called Uncharted. Finally, the narrator sounds angry; he also doesn’t sound like anybody we’ve encountered in the series before. The big question is: are we about to get a new string of Uncharted games starring somebody new? Did Nathan Drake’s trilogy end with Drake’s Deception?
The game is heading exclusively to PlayStation 4; there isn’t a PlayStation 3 logo in sight. That’s not surprising: Sony is well aware that the Uncharted series sells consoles. You can find the teaser below. Leave us some thoughts, Uncharted fans. Would the game feel the same without Nathan Drake? Could this be a prequel starring Sully? Would you like to see portions of the game set in South Africa? Is that a stupid question? What should I eat for lunch today?
