Uncharted 4 :A thief's end
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is an action-adventure video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 video game console. The game was released worldwide on May 10, 2016. Following Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, it is the final installment to the Uncharted series featuring protagonist Nathan Drake.
A Thief's End follows series protagonist Nathan Drake (portrayed by Nolan North), who has retired from fortune hunting several years after the events of Drake's Deception. He reunites with his estranged older brother Sam and longtime partner Sully to search for clues to the location of Captain Henry Avery's long-lost treasure to save his brother. Compared to previous installments in the series, the game's story campaign features significantly larger and more open-designed levels to allow players more freedom to explore and move about in combat situations, progress through enemy encounters undetected using stealth, and use vehicles to openly navigate around some sections of the campaign. Development of Uncharted 4 was hampered by extensive script changes and reshoots following the departures of the series' lead writer and creative director Amy Hennig and game director Justin Richmond in March 2014, and subsequent appointment of the game's new directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann, who oversaw the development of Naughty Dog's previous title The Last of Us.
The game was first teased at the North America PlayStation 4 launch event in November 2013. Upon release, the game received widespread acclaim, and was regarded by critics to be one of the best games of 2016. Reviewers found A Thief's End to be a worthy conclusion to the Uncharted series, with praise directed towards its narrative, emotional depth, visual quality, multiplayer, improved gameplay mechanics, and music. The game received numerous year-end accolades, including various Game of the Year awards from several gaming publications and award events. The game sold over 2.7 million copies in its first week of release, and became the fastest-selling entry in the series, as well as the best-selling video game on the PlayStation 4.
