“We have great news for all our Uncharted fans – Amy, Justin, and the team are hard at work on an amazing new installment of the Uncharted series to be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 system,” wrote Hennig. “Our goal is to continue what we’ve done in previous console generations and once again deliver the best in storytelling, performance capture, technical innovation and graphics on the PS4. We can confirm that the voiceover is performed by Todd Stashwick and he will play a character in the game.”
Elsewhere, Halo-creator Bungie announced that the beta for online shooter Destiny will be open first to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 owners, and released new in-game footage of the highly anticipated title, which you can see below.
Yeah, and we’re the offspring of Sir Francis Drake
Naughty Dog may have only just finished lapping up the plaudits for its latest release The Last of Us, but already the industry’s attention is turning to its next title. And given that it’s been almost two years since Nathan Drake’s last globe-trotting adventure, it’s commonly accepted that the studio’s next outing will be Uncharted 4. Nolan North, protagonist Nathan Drake’s popular voice actor, should know a thing or two about the sequel then, right?
“I have no idea [about it],” he told Eurogamer.net. “I really don’t. Naughty Dog is busy with The Last of Us, which is supposed to be fantastic, but they’ve been really, really busy with that. Maybe, once that’s finished and the dust settles from all of that, maybe we’ll know more about the possibility of [Uncharted 4]. I’m hoping, but I really don’t know. The fact that I don’t know is always disconcerting, but we’ll see.”
Hmm. Why do we get the feeling that Mr. North is telling us Shambhala-sized porkies? We know that the Californian developer has grown since the release of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, forming two full teams. As such, there’s a second group within the company that’s been working on an unannounced project ever since it deployed Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in 2011. Would anyone like to bet against a fourth entry in the smash hit series?
Naughty Dog is wishing everyone a Happy Holiday with a couple free customizable Christmas character items for Uncharted 3‘s online multiplayer, along with a wonderfully complex looking (and very secular by contrast) Block Mesh Lab map.
So, what specific character DLC can you look forward to? Aside from present Drake head from above, there’s also a character shirt sporting Naughty Dog’s Co-President Christophe Balestra’s festive fuzzy face. You can also catch Balestra’s handsome mug gracing a customized candy cane crowned AK-47.
You can use all of these (predominantly Christmas centric) holiday items from now until January 8th of next year in Uncharted 3s multiplayer mode.
Do you plan on curling up with (and possibly murdering) your entire family with present-head-Drake imbued with the power of the almighty Balestra branded AK-47 on Christmas day? Let us know in the comments!
