Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is unquestionably a great game of the era PS4the action/adventure title from Naugthy Dog connects impressive action scenes and can count on quality filmmaking. Moreover, the studio does not hide its inspirations.
Nathan Drake, this Bad Boy who wanted to play it James Bond
It is in a Couchsoup video, noted by SamaGame, that the studio would have been inspired by the Bad Boys saga for its chase sequence in Madagascar. The artists behind this stage were thinking about all the possible means to offer a sequence strong in adrenaline, destruction and stunts of all kindsand it is true that some passages may recall the impressive bad boys 2 chase in Brazil, in which Michael Bay does not hesitate to blow everything up.
Not content with offering a great show to its players, Naughty Dog had also imagined gameplay mechanics, this time inspired by James Bond: Diamonds Are Foreverwith notably the possibility of overturning the vehicle on its side to roll it on two wheels, a stunt that has since been repeated many, many times in the history of action cinema. Nevertheless, for Uncharted 4, the idea that will never go beyond the prototype stage, the team having judged that such an addition would not be particularly useful. It must be said that the sequence was already sufficiently loaded as it was.
It’s always fun to see what the developers’ inspirations are and how they manipulate them to give birth to their own universe. By the way, if you want to know more, you can take a look at the CouchSoup show that we ask you here (entirely in English)
As a reminder, in addition to one version PS4, Uncharted 4 now has a PS5 version with its stand alone The Lost Legacy. Furthermore, the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will soon be available on PC.
