Uncharted 4 is More Personal, It’s All About Nathan Drake: Naughty Dog

We are just a handful of months away from the fourth mainstream installment of Uncharted. Known as A Thief’s End, the latest game is going to be more personal for Nathan Drake, according to Uncharted 4 director Neil Druckmann.

While discussing the themes of Uncharted 4, Druckmann said that the game will focus on Nathan’s struggles to maintain a balance between his personal life, relationship with friends and family, and his passion and love of treasure hunting.

We saw a glimpse of this in a video trailer shown by Naughty Dog. We saw that Elena, wife of Nathan Drake, tracks him down and looks pretty pissed to find out that he is back to his old self and adventures.

The heart of this is Nathan Drake’s – and maybe an artists’ – struggle: how do you balance your relationship with your family and friends, and your passion, the thing you’re willing to dedicate your life to and make big sacrifices for?” he explains, warming to his subject.

“If you look at Nathan Drake, he has dealt with obsession his entire life. Whether it’s El Dorado in Uncharted or Shangri-La in Uncharted 2 or Iram of the Pillars in Uncharted 3, those have been major obsessions for him and we’ve seen it hurt his relationship. We’ve seen how between each game his relationship with Elena falls apart.

He added:

There’s something that happens there in that gap that was really interesting for us. That’s what we want to get into. Because maybe you can’t have both. Maybe you can’t have your family and that passion and the obsession

So basically, Nathan Drake is living a very mundane life but something pulls him back to his treasure hunting days. What exactly happens will be revealed when Uncharted 4 releases for PS4 in April.
