Uncharted 4 Will Be “More Personal”

In an interview with MCV, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End co-director Neil Druckmann spoke about how the game will give players a closer look at who Nathan Drake is as a person:

We’ve learned a lot about how we tell stories through interactivity with The Last of Us and there are lessons that we’re applying to Uncharted 4. 

It’s about finding that right balance for Uncharted–it’s definitely not going to be The Last of Us. But we are trying to make it more personal this time and see how much we can delve into who Nathan Drake really is, and what kind of effect this journey has on him and the people around him.

While the game will be more personal it won’t be as dark as The Last of Us, considering that game is set in a zombie apocalypse I believe him. Druckmann continued to explain that A Thief’s End will retain the franchise’s “summer movie blockbuster” feel:

We know Uncharted is about fun, charming characters and set pieces, and you’re going to see that, too. You’ll see an evolution of that and how we mirror those set pieces to the narrative. That’s our challenge.

Considering that in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception we already got a closer at Nate, Druckmann’s comments are very intriguing. Could it be that in between games Nate has changed as a person? Let us know what you think in the comment section.
