The fourth and final instalment in Naughty Dog’s excellent adventure series, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, now has a firm release date: 18th March 2016.

[sf_countdown year=”2016″ month=”3″ day=”18″ hour=”24″ type=”countdown” fontsize=”small” displaytext=”Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End”]

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End takes place several years after Uncharted 3, with Nathan Drake, now a retired fortune hunter, being forced back into the world of thieves. Similarly to previous adventures, Drake is fuelled by issues of a personal nature that see him embark on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. Naturally, this will be his “greatest adventure”, one that will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice in order to save the people he loves.

Along with a firm date of release on PlayStation 4, Naughty Dog have also detailed the five different flavours that Drake’s final tale will be available in.

As someone who has gone ‘all digital’ for the current generation, I often approach special and collector’s editions of games with some trepidation. Mostly because they can be overpriced with physical content that is not worthy of the asking price.

The Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End  [Collector’s Edition] however, has a figure made by Gentle Giant, a company renowned for creating some truly detailed and limited edition figures. As such, it has piqued my interest and could very well be a worthwhile edition to purchase.

Having said that,  I do wish that video game publishers would offer the option of special edition and collector’s edition packages with digital redemption codes instead of physical discs. I prefer the instantaneous nature of installed games, versus needing to swap discs. In my case, it also does not help that the disc drive no longer functions correctly on my ‘out of warranty’ PlayStation 4.

Pricing information is not yet available for the various editions of Uncharted 4: A thief’s End, but we have reached out to Sony for comment and will update this article accordingly.
