As we get closer to the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in 2016 there is interest how The Last of Us has influenced the game. Naughty Dog have revealed just how in a new interview about the game.
In the latest issue of MCV Eric Monacelli of Naughty Dog revealed:
“We definitely learned a lot from The Last of Us” Monacelli reveals. “Everybody at the studio is working on Uncharted 4, which is a great feeling and the way that Naughty Dog has always worked best. You’re going to see a lot of influence from every member that touched The Last of Us that that they’re bringing to Uncharted 4”
On the story-driven narrative of the games, he continued:
“We have a really good pedigree as the leaders in story-driven narrative. We’re always going to champion that and be proud of it but, especially with Uncharted 3 and The Last of Us, we learnt so many lessons about how to make a game good, fun multiplayer game.”
He also revealed the focus on multiplayer:
“There are so many really great communities for multiplayer out there, and that’s one of our main objectives with multiplayer: how can we keep people engaged, playing and attentive to our brand? That’s something we aim for, but above all you want your multiplayer to be fun.”
With the multiplayer beta test coming soon for owners of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, it will be interesting to get a try of the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer and see what it brings to the game.
