Much has been speculated about the new Uncharted for Ps4, but we finally got some official word from Naughty Dog’s Co-Founder Evan Wells on what we can expect from the game as part of an interview on Game Informer.
We sure hope you’re surprised by how amazing it looks! It’s going to be an exciting story, and I think people are going to really buy into this one in a way that I think is consistent with the rest of the stories. It’s a stand-alone adventure like all of them are; we don’t expect people to have played the past games to enjoy the current one. But you’re going to get to experience Drake and his crew in a new way.
Even Uncharted 1. If you go from Uncharted 1 to 2 to 3, you can see there’s definitely an evolution in the storytelling techniques and the gravity of the situations and the relationships that Drake’s put in. The next Uncharted will continue that evolution. I don’t know if you’re digging at the theory that’s out there that it’s somehow going to be this departure or that The Last of Us is indicative of the future of Naughty Dog projects. It’s not going to be that sharp of a turn. I think it’s an evolution that people will be comfortable with if they’ve played the previous Uncharted games.
It’s fairly obvious that with E3 coming, it’s finally time for the floodgates to break open little by little, so it’s not too surprising that the good folks at Naughty Dog are more open to talk about the new game. Personally, I can’t wait to hear and see more about it in just a week, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
