This month’s Game Informer magazine has a scoop on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End which will be partly set in Libertalia, “a mythic Madagascar colony purportedly founded by pirates.”
Nate’s presumed dead brother, Sam, will accompany him on his adventures as an AI partner, in much the same way Ellie helped Joel through The Last of Us. The game is set three years after Uncharted 3 and will feature two new antagonists, Rafe and Nadine, with Sully and Elena also making an appearance.
Artefacts are to return and may also include clues to further treasure, and the maps will have multiple paths which will allow you to sneak past enemies rather than engage in battles.
The trademark Uncharted humour will return so expect plenty of banter between Sam and Nate, although Sam is said to be more reckless than his ‘better-at-everything little brother.’
Also, as the headline reveals, multiplayer will return but no details have been given.
