'Uncharted 4' news: Latest story trailer looks good but gets Naughty Dog in trouble for 'borrowed' art

0

The Sony PlayStation 4 exclusive adventure game “Uncharted 4” is two months away from its big release and to get fans excited about the upcoming game, developer Naughty Dog released a new trailer for the game, giving its fans a glimpse of the game’s story and its main characters. When the trailer was released last February 25, not only did it cause excitement among fans, it also brought along some controversy when one of the artworks Naughty Dog used in the trailer was flagged by another developer, Ubisoft, as concept art that came from an “Assassin’s Creed” game.

After being called out twice by folks at Ubisoft, Naughty Dog has since issued an apology, changed the artwork in the trailer and released an updated trailer. According to a report in GameSpot, Naughty Dog admitted their “regrettable mistake,” saying that the company “did not thoroughly vet the artwork used for an in game painting.” The “borrowed” artwork appeared at the 1:36 minute marker and features a beach scene which was originally featured in “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”

Despite the controversy, however, the PS4 exclusive is considered one of the most-awaited games for the current generation Sony console. The trailer gave fans a deeper look into the story behind the game, which is centered on retired treasure-hunter Nathan Drake who gets pulled into the hunt once again after his long-lost and supposedly dead brother shows up. His decision to go on another adventure greatly affects his current relationship with his wife, Elena, especially since he already retired after the events of “Uncharted 3.”

The game is set to be released on April 26, 2016, after being delayed twice from its original release date in 2015. Sony is also releasing a Limited Edition “Uncharted 4” PS4 bundle on the same day as the game’s release, which comes with a copy of the game, a Limited Edition 500GB PS4 console in gray blue with an image of Nathan Drake, and a matching DualShock 4.
