Close to 2 years after their first announcement, the long awaited video game is set be released later than expected. It was announced that the game will be released exclusively for PS4, after the 2014 Sony E3 press conference.
Not much has been mentioned as to what fans can expect from the next instalment. Gamers may be able to expect a new feature available in this fourth instalment which has been hinted in a recent report from Push Square. They have claimed that the game will have a multiplayer option available that will not only give more dimension to the storyline but take the experience of gaming to the next level.
Players can anticipate this third person shooter video game to meet all expectations. New tools for journeying across harsh terrain, grappling hooks to swing across crazy ledges. The video game will also introduce new combat combos for players such as the ability to grab the gun in the air like a true bad ass. All-round improvements to gaming experience and graphics quality are to be expected in the next release. Even hand to hand combat will see much improvement from previous instalments.
Release Date Delayed
The return of Nathan Drake is set to be released no earlier than the first or second quarter of 2016. With much anticipation from gamers all over the world, the delay of the release was due to several reasons that have not been specifically detailed.
In an interview on PS Blog, Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann who are the directors of the upcoming game, said "this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned…After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don’t take lightly this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for.”
The delay could have also occurred due to recent changes in script writers and recasting the voice of Sam much after the release of the teaser in 2013. Regardless of why there has been a delay, the team at Naughty Dog have however promise loyal fans and gamers the wait will be worth it, claiming that the release in 2016 will be more thrilling and more entertaining than it’s ever been to meet the standards of the Unchartered series.
