Nathan Drake may be one of the most appreciated characters from within the range of PlayStation exclusive franchises released over the years but there's a lot that the fans don't know about him. Through the first three games we do learn quite a lot about Nathan Drake and his personality type, but I honestly know very little about his past and there's still a lot about him that remains mysterious.
Fortunately Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will have a big approach on Nathan Drake's childhood, revealing details about his upbringing according to lead designer Ricky Cambier.
If you're already aware of the current details released about Uncharted 4, you will know that the game will introduce Nathan's older brother, Sam Drake to the players. Ricky Cambier mentioned in an interview that, "We don't know a lot about his childhood and what happened." "We bring a character like Sam in and now you get to meet his older brother. And you get to see a little about what that relationship is like and how formidable that was to who Nathan Drake is."
Obviously Uncharted 4 is going to be the final title for the franchise, at least as the main story arc is concerned, so the Naughty Dog team have a big task on their hands if they want to wrap things up properly. Naughty Dog seem to think they've done a good job and I personally believe they have what it takes to send out the franchise with a bang.
Naughty Dog's Arne Meyer ended with "At the end of Uncharted 4, we've put together a great closing chapter for Nathan Drake and his adventures. It feels really great for us to wrap up some of his storylines and answer some of these questions. I hope our fans feel the same way. It feels like a good time for us to step away from the entire series."
