You didn't think Nathan Drake was going to miss the next generation, did you?
Sony and Naughty Dog announced plans for a new Uncharted game that will run on the PlayStation 4 during last night's PS4 All Access Launch Event on Spike TV.
A teaser trailer gave fans of the series just a hint of what to expect - as a voice we've never heard before vows revenge as the screen draws a map of Africa's southern tip.
Beyond the tease, developer Naughty Dog isn't saying a lot about the game. Game director Justin Richmond and creative director Amy Hennig are back - which is good. The game will be a PS4 exclusive, which is to be expected. And the fellow voicing that angry soul in the teaser is voice actor Todd Stashwick, who will play a character in the game.
"Our goal is to continue what we’ve done in previous console generations and once again deliver the best in storytelling, performance capture, technical innovation and graphics on the PS4," said Naughty Dog's Arne Meyer in a post on the official PlayStation blog.
The PS4 surprises didn't end with Uncharted, though. Bungie was on hand to let PS4 owners and potential owners know that if they want an early shot at the beta launch, that it would be opening it up first to PlayStation (both the PS3 and PS4).
They, too, had a new trailer to show off what the game was looking like.
Sucker Punch offered some clarity on when the next round of really big games will hit for the PS4, putting a March 21 launch date on Infamous: Second Son. And Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was on hand to announced that the PlayStation versions of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will include an exclusive "Déjà Vu" mission that includes Classic Snake.
While the focus was on the PS4, Sony made sure to throw PS3 owners a bone as well. New story-based DLC is en-route for The Last of Us, which will dig further into Ellie's backstory. The Last of Us: Left Behind will be available early next year.
