The story of Nathan Drake is full of nearly indescribable, wondrous moments. If you attended PAX Prime you might have made one of your own #UnchartedMoments. Now, as we look toward the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection next month, we wanted to invite you into our studio to talk about some of our personal favorite moments from the first three Uncharted games.
The first moment that came to mind is this scene from Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Drake is being held in an abandoned prison by the ruthless pirate, Eddy Raja, and his escape results in a white-knuckle truck chase. This scene really gets at the humor present in the series and the depths Elena and Drake will go through together. It was a memorable scene to create as it began our obsession with having a thrilling vehicle chase in subsequent Uncharted games. The play-through below comes straight from the new Uncharted collection, faithfully and beautifully remastered for PlayStation 4.
Pretty thrilling stuff, right? We’re showing off more of this sequence and talking about what went into making one of our favorite moments in the franchise on our Naughty Dog Twitch channel right now. Tune in! In fact, we’ll be sharing development team insights about select UNCHARTED moments and other cool, new features in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection starting now through launch.
