While I may have only recently started playing the Uncharted games, let me tell you, it’s time well spent. The Uncharted series is seemingly a perfect hybrid between Indiana Jones and James Bond. Nathan Drake, a charming treasure hunter, travels across the world chasing myths and legends. The first installment of the series, Drake’s Fortune, Nathan is found scouring for the location of the infamous El Dorado. The second, Among Thieves, tests his limits looking for Shangri-La and the fabled Cintimani Stone. Lastly, the third installment to the series, Drake’s Deception, takes players on a hunt for a lost city, Iram of the Pillars.
So, as you can see, Drake has certainly been through it all, but (thankfully) not quite all. Nathan Drake has returned to conclude one of my most favorite series, and is back for one last job: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Since this is the first time I’ve had to actually wait for one of these installments to come out, it’s got me nothing but impatient. I would say it’s better that I played the previous games after their release, but I’m not so sure about that. I love being able to follow along with the news and trailers for A Thief’s End. Speaking of which, Sony has just released the latest trailer for ATE, and it’s kickass to say the least. Sony unveiled this trailer at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show, and the trailer starts off with epic music and rapid gunfire (some of my favorite things). Nathan leaps from ledge to ledge, dodging bullets as well as punches.
We even get a look at Nathan Drake’s older brother, Sam Drake. Sam Drake is voice acted by none other than the incredible Troy Baker. For those of you who don’t know Troy Baker, he’s done the voice work for Joel in The Last of Us, The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins, Booker in Bioshock Infinite, and a million other things.
“Good to see you’re alive, little brother.” Yes, that was me. Damn proud.

In the trailer, we can also see Drake speeding his way through car chases, and hanging on for dear life as he’s dragged through dirt covered streets. At the end of the trailer, it seems as if Drake is screaming “I don’t got that”. I find this incredibly hilarious, because throughout the whole 52 second trailer we see him completing insane stunts.
This trailer is definitely action-packed and gameplay-based, so it’s most certainly worth watching and can be seen above.
