Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is an action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 video game console. It is the sequel to Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, and is the fourth and final installment in the Uncharted series starring Nathan Drake, as well as the last in the series to be developed by Naughty Dog.
Naughty Dog said previously that A Thief’s End’s branching dialogue sequences are limited to a “few spots” where their use will be most impactful. As shown at PlayStation Experience in December, one of these scenes is an early exchange between Nathan Drake and his brother Sam.
“There’s something about Sam asking Nate about his old adventures that’s like, it would be kind of fun to have Nate–and therefore the player–pick which story they want to tell first,” Druckmann said. “And there’s a few other instances like that where it felt like a dialogue tree was just going to get you more into the scene and make it more interactive.”
Branching dialogue is common in role-playing games from BioWare and others, but this is the first time it’s shown up in an Uncharted game.
The game was originally set to be released in 2015. On March 11, 2015, Naughty Dog confirmed that Uncharted 4 was delayed to March 18, 2016 to allow for additional development time. It was delayed again on December 23, 2015 to April 26, 2016.
