    Uncharted 4 will still be light-hearted, assures Naughty Dog

    The co-president of Naughty Dog has said that the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will adhere to the series' traditional light-hearted nature, despite the darker tone of the studio's hit action-adventure title, The Last of Us.

    Speaking to Eurogamer, Evan Wells said the first-party company would risk alienating fans of Nathan Drake's treasure hunting franchise if they were to alter the tone of the multi-million selling series.

    "Uncharted is a completely different franchise, and appeals to its audience for completely different reasons. I don't think The Last of Us marks a new direction in tone that all of our future games are going to take on. We'd alienate a lot of our Uncharted fans," he said.

    "We want to keep it a light-hearted romp. I think from a technical standpoint we've learnt some things from The Last of Us that will feed into Uncharted - in fact it strengthens our desire to keep them distinct."

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is scheduled to ship for PS4 in 2015.

    Excited to see what they have in store for us.

    Am I right in thinking that we are getting another trailer at Gamescom?

    I want it to be dark and serious. Kick the light-hearted $#@! to the curb and let's get dirty!

    The IP being a light-hearted romp is what set it apart though. I think they struck the right tone, pacing and all that jazz in Uncharted 2.

    That's good to know. Uncharted is so great because it can have a sense of humour and not be 100% serious and gritty all the time.

    Looking forward to ANYTHING Uncharted 4 related!

    Agree with this.

    The "keep it a light-hearted romp" implies the focus is a darker story.

    Personally, the whole light heartedness of it made it enjoyable. Drake was an ass, and we knew he was an ass, so no one took it seriously (for want of a better word). Uncharted 2 hit every note perfectly; Story, Pacing, Gameplay, Character development etc. Even when he got beat up, he was still cracking jokes and being a smart ass.

    This could end up being like Tomb Raider, where it takes itself sooo damn seriously....If the gameplay conflicts with what happens in Cut-scenes it's going to be a bad ride....TR was a joke in that respect. You can't kill 100 guys in gameplay and then that one guy you accidentally kill in a cut-scene makes you break down....Major faux pas.

    HOWEVER!

    It's unlikely to be travelling down the TR road. If one takes TLoU as an example of the boffins at ND's ability to blend the right notes, it could be what the IP needs. Excited to see what they can accomplish!

    They made some very odd choices in The Last of Us (which sort of annoy me - more gameplay wise, less story wise - being reminded of it now as I am replaying through the Remastered); they did a pretty good job with Uncharted 2 so let's see what they do.

    I'm excited for sure. I went "oh $#@!" when they revealed UC4. It's their best IP in my opinion.

    TLoU needed to be darker and full of feels and it was, Uncharted 2 is pure fun and there isn't really any section in that game I'm too scared to attempt.
