Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is coming to PC. This is the inevitable reality of all PlayStation exclusives. It seems like Sony just wants to make as much money as possible. However, it’s not a bad thing at all. In fact, I think it’s going to be great for both fans and newcomers alike. If you think about it, this move just brings in a whole new audience of players. People who have never played an Uncharted game before. This one will make them curious, and before you know it, they’ll be PS5 owners.
Uncharted 4 is the latest mainline entry in the Uncharted franchise. I don’t think it’s wise to say last because Naughty Dog definitely isn’t done with it. We have an entire series to look forward to with Nathan Drake’s daughter, plus more spin-off entries like The Lost Legacy. For PC players this will be their first foray into the world of Uncharted, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all. This game looks the best, has the best gameplay, and the story is pretty great too. For Uncharted veterans, it feels like more of the same, but for first-timers, it’s brilliant.
More people playing Uncharted 4 means more people to talk about Uncharted with in the world. I love discussing games with my friends, but it’s so hard when they love PC and I love PlayStation and we can’t agree on anything. It feels like we’re both fighting an uphill battle trying to connect on some level. PlayStation exclusives are that level, and Uncharted 4 is going to be one of the most accessible. I can see a lot of praise coming to the game when it finally hits PC, and more players will obviously be added to the multiplayer mode, which means it’ll see a small revival.
The final great thing about this is that it means that Sony is keen to get more from Naughty Dog. The developer is probably a bit exhausted by making the same series over and over, but they always sell well, and they’re always great. We know that The Last Of Us Part 3 has to come out in the future, and there must be more on the cards for Uncharted. For now though, we can all have fun together enjoying the current releases.
