The Sound of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

In this exclusive SoundWorks Collection sound profile we talk with the Naughty Dog audio team behind Uncharted 4 including Audio Lead Phillip Kovats, Senior Sound Designer Robert Krekel, Senior Programmer Jonathan Lanier and Senior Sound Designer Jeremy Rogers.


Three years after the events of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Nathan "Nate" Drake, now retired as a fortune hunter, has settled into a normal life with his wife Elena Fisher. His world is then turned upside down when his older brother Sam, long believed to be dead, suddenly reappears seeking Drake's help. Along with Victor "Sully" Sullivan, they embark on a race against time, across the globe, from the snow-capped peaks of Scotland to the island nation of Madagascar, in pursuit of a conspiracy behind Libertalia, a long lost pirate colony, and its fabled pooled pirate treasure. Nate must also contend with rival treasure hunter Rafe Adler, who has partnered with mercenary Nadine Ross and her PMC, Shoreline, to help him locate Libertalia. Naughty Dog outlined the game's plot as "his greatest adventure yet and will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately, what he's willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves".
