The demo shows Nathan Drake, his brother Sam, and his mentor Sully navigating the backgrounds of Madagascar in search of outposts where the legendary pirate Henry Avery may have hidden his treasure. Players are equipped with a 4×4 to drive around, which they can hop out of at any time to investigate ruins or search for collectible treasures scattered across the landscape. It offers a small glimpse what Naughty Dog calls Uncharted 4‘s “wide linear”-style exploration, which allows for more freewheeling navigation without sacrificing the series’ narrative-driven pacing.
Additionally, several outlets have gone up with new previews of the game. Have your pick: Digital Foundry, DualShockers, Eurogamer, Gamersyde, GameSpot, IGN, Kinda Funny Games, PlayStation Access, PlayStation Blog, Polygon, TwoSixNine, and VentureBeat.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4 on May 10.
