Despite fan’s wishes and predictions the Uncharted 4 release date has still not been announced (or confirmed that there even is an Uncharted 4 in development). I have my own theory: The Last of Us IS Uncharted 4. If you’ve played the zombie apocalypse game then you’ll know what I’m talking about. The Last of Us was created by Naughty Dog, the developer of the Uncharted series and it shows. The Last of Us actually is an Uncharted game, just with slighty different characters. The graphics are the same quality. The motion controls, mechanics, and character movement are exactly the same. The guns you can obtain are straight out of Uncharted. Heck, they even lifted the horse riding experience straight out of Uncharted 3 and stuck it in The Last of Us. Instead of searching for treasures you are looking for documents, pendants, manuals, supplies, and ammo.
I’m not saying this is a bad thing - quite the contrary! If you’re going to copy another game you might as well copy from the best. In fact, I would rate the Last of Us as being better than Uncharted 3. The Last of Us takes the Uncharted experience and improves upon it! The biggest difference is in the Last of Us you have to put more thought into how you’re going to take the bad guys out due to your limited ammo - you can’t just run and gun like you can in the Uncharted series.
So that’s why I think The Last of Us is Uncharted 4, what do you think?
