New Uncharted Announced

#1 Edited by JayEH (517 posts) -

Just announced at Spike PS4 Live Event. Titled just "Uncharted" and it seems like there might be a new character. Will update with trailer when its up. Disappointed they're going back to an existing franchise but maybe they'll change up the formula a bit.

Edit: Here's the teaser

#2 Posted by SlashDance (1804 posts) -

I will gladly play it if it's as good as the PS3 games, but Naughty Dog not doing something new on PS4 is really disappointing.

#3 Posted by EricSmith (316 posts) -

Hopefully it is at least better than 3 and Golden Abyss combined. AKA, as good as the original, but not as good as 2.

#4 Posted by Milkman (16526 posts) -

Felt kind of done with Uncharted after 3. I can't say this excites me too much until I see something substantial.

#5 Posted by mosdl (3228 posts) -

No surprise, hopefully they make this an open world rpg!

#6 Edited by AlecOfTheWest (275 posts) -

Is it a reboot or something? Why no 4. I had kinda hoped they would quit while they were ahead with this series, but hopefully they do something fresh with the mechanics and protagonist.

One would assume that the Last of Us team is working on something new.

That guy sounds a lot like Javier Bardem, except with less of an accent.

I won't lie, I'm a bit disappointed. I was hoping they would let go of the franchise for a bit. Oh well.

This isn't Crash Bandicoot =/

So, it looks like the trailer hints that Libertatia will be the focus of the story -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertatia

Libertatia (also known as Libertalia) was a possibly fictional anarchist colony founded in the late 17th century in Madagascar by pirates under the leadership of Captain James Misson. Whether or not Libertatia actually existed is disputed. It is described in the book A General History of the Pyrates by Captain Charles Johnson, an otherwise unknown individual who may have been a pseudonym of Daniel Defoe.[1] Much of the book is a mixture of fact and fiction, and it is possible the account of Libertatia is entirely fabricated.[1]

Their motto was "For God and Liberty" as seen in the trailer and the trailer highlights the island off of Madagascar where it was located.

wait a minute? did Uncharted just get tomb raidered? So it is going to be torture porn?

#12 Posted by Bane122 (783 posts) -

I love the writing and characters so I'm down for this but, man... I really hope they improve the combat. So far ND just hasn't gotten that part down.

#13 Posted by JayEH (517 posts) -

Apparently Blair Herter was the voice in the trailer

#14 Posted by zombie2011 (4968 posts) -

Uncharted 3 felt quite tired, which is weird since 2 was the game that really started the franchise. Not sure if I want another game. Thinking back at It 3 was so similar to 2 it was like they stopped trying. The second half of 2 and 3 are almost identical gameplay and story wise.

#15 Posted by sirdesmond (1234 posts) -

The central myth that it seems focused on is cool, but it'll come down to the core characters, what they do with them and how they change up the formula that will really matter most to me. I still haven't played 3 just because it didn't look as good as 2.

#16 Posted by Hunter5024 (5541 posts) -

This is pretty much exactly what I wanted out of this event. 3 was kind of a sour note to end the series on, and I'd like to see them go out with a bang.

@jayeh: It's actually Todd Stashwick according to the PlayStation Blog.

I love Uncharted so I'm excited but the teaser did nothing for me. I hate (& love) teasers.

#18 Posted by MonetaryDread (1992 posts) -

I am starting to get sick of trailers that show nothing of the game being promoted. It is like they are saying, "here is an announcement to state that we are going to announce something at some point in the future."

#19 Posted by mosespippy (4032 posts) -

Good for them. I'm not going to play it but I'm sure it'll sell well enough to make another one and another and...

Oh Ok thanks, Game Informer was wrong then

I dunno if I'm in the majority or the minority. But I want them to stop with the supernatural shit. So I hope they do.

It maybe could be done well, but it hasn't yet, so yeah!

I know, saw the same thing on GIO, went to the Blog and it was there. Wonder where GIO's source for that.

If it's a reboot of the series I can dig it.

#26 Posted by face15 (1274 posts) -

I am so disappointed that they aren't just doing something new. Seems like it's probably the Uncharted 3 team working on this so hopefully we'll get something new and interesting from the Uncharted 2/Last of Us guys soon.

I'd say great chance that's Last of Us 2 but I guess we will see.

#28 Posted by devilzrule27 (1239 posts) -

As other have said Naughty Dog being a two team studio now it's not surprising that they're continuing Uncharted. And I look forward to playing it. Hopefully they change some things up in it and don't just make the same games but prettier.

#29 Posted by face15 (1274 posts) -

@artisanbreads: I wouldn't be opposed to that, but damn I would love to see something completely new from Naughty Dog.

Me too. Didn't like Last of Us that much anyways. But it would be kinda cool to see on next gen hardware, the last game pushing the PS3 to the brink of exploding in my entertainment center and all.

A game not about shooting people in the face would be a good change of pace. Feels like ND should be doing more than just third person shooters.

#31 Edited by TooWalrus (13136 posts) -

I'm going to buy it. I'll probably love it. I liked Uncharted 3. Can't say I'm not slightly disappointed it's not something new.

#32 Posted by Blackout62 (1328 posts) -

So it's not Unkarted: Sully's Outback Adventure I take it?

Kind of felt done after 2. Enjoyable game, but it was enough.

#34 Edited by Nightriff (4915 posts) -

Regardless, it will definitely look beautiful. I have my problems with 2 and 3 (red and blue motherfuckers) but I'm on board for another one since I have a new machine to play it with.

The Uncharted

#36 Posted by chrissedoff (2075 posts) -

The tone seems a little dark for my tastes and I hope to God it's not a reboot so soon. Given the fact that this video has absolutely nothing substantial to tell me about the new Uncharted video game besides the fact that it is being made, I'm indifferent for now.

Uncharted 2 and 3 both had teasers in line with this. It's probably more of a re-branding, then reboot, like Xbone's "Halo". Comic books do dumb shit like that every year, it's to get new people to jump on.

At first I thought that was Vin Diesel's voice and I got reeeeeeeally excited.

I love Uncharted, automatically sold, i'm in, take my money, done.

Well, ND is split into two teams, maybe the second team goes onto something new once they are done with The Last of Us DLC.

Do not associate Mr. Diesel with those overrated games.

#42 Posted by ReTarDedFisHy (1062 posts) -

ReTarDedFisHy is glad that they announced it; no more wondering.
Wished for something a little more substantial but can't complain.

#43 Edited by Yummylee (21249 posts) -

Of course there's going to be a new Uncharted. Which I'm certainly not opposed to, so long as they shy away from Nathan Drake, at least in the starring role. Though if anything the dialogue and tone of this trailer almost makes me think this will star some associate of Drake's that went to prison/got lost in one of the many collapsing cities Drake tends to trigger, who is now after REVENNNGGGEEEEE. I hope so least, and not that this guy is just going to be the latest in Nathan Drake's pantheon of mortal enemies...

Yeah, people seem to be missing that fact. I'm at least holding out some hope that there's another ND team working on a fresh IP. As much as I like the Uncharted franchise, it would be dissapointing if ND breaks its streak of making a new IP for every Sony console.

#45 Posted by ElixirBronze (417 posts) -

I don't get people who like Uncharted. I found i super boring to play for the exact same reasons critics seem to dislike Knack. To me, they both suffer from the same problem, only Uncharted has more cinematic value (which is primarily not what I'm looking for in video games).

#46 Posted by MEATBALL (3064 posts) -

I really hope it's not just more Uncharted. I love the idea of getting more from the series, but not if it's just going to be more 3rd person cover shooting bookended by "go here while this shit explodes around you".

#47 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

I will gladly play it if it's as good as the PS3 games, but Naughty Dog not doing something new on PS4 is really disappointing.

Don't they have at least two teams? Unless the next thing is The Last of Us 2, that's going to be something new - though it's going to be The Last of Us 2 - we all know that.

Again, I'd be shocked if they aren't making a next gen Last of Us sequel. That wasn't a one off game it was the start of a franchise. I'm not missing anything.

I think they probably do make a new IP if I was going to bet but with them making Uncharted, probably not for a while.

I originally was thinking/hoping they would hand off Uncharted to a different studio.

#49 Posted by Stonyman65 (2591 posts) -

I could play another Uncharted. I really enjoy those types of games, and I always thought Naughty Dog does a good job with that stuff.

Uncharted wasn't that bad, Uncharted 2 was AMAZING, and Uncharted 3 was okay (but honestly, how could it stack up to what Uncharted 2 was?).

#50 Posted by MikeFerrari7 (179 posts) -

I think this is a straight up sequel. They said if you pick apart the trailer you will be able to find some clues, and while I haven't found anything profound, one thing I did notice is that towards the end, you can see four marks made on the skull. Not exactly proper roman numerals, but I think it could be a hint that this is not a spinoff or prequel.
