It took four games, but a thief is going to meet some sort of an end this March.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End hits PlayStation 4 on March 18, according to a PlayStation blog post. This represents Nathan Drake’s first original game on Sony’s latest console. The publisher announced the launch date alongside two special collector’s edition versions of Uncharted 4. These packages include art books, stickers, and more.
This is a crucial release for Sony and the PlayStation 4. The Uncharted series — and especially Uncharted 2: Among Thieves — often gets credit from gamers and critics for kickstarting the last generation of consoles. With Uncharted 4, developer Naughty Dog will continue the franchise’s focus on huge action sequences, storytelling, and top-notch technical prowess.
While Sony shared the release date, the company focused primarily on getting Uncharted fans pumped to spend some extra cash on the aforementioned special editions. Here’s a quick breakdown of what each collector’s bundle will get you.
